Senior Staff Power Systems Engineer
The candidate will be responsible for designing and developing power systems for RF communications circuits. The initial assignment will comprise of developing power systems for the next generation of infrastructure products. Other assignments could comprise of supporting field issues or end-of-life components related to power supply systems on legacy products.
The candidate is expected to have experience in selecting appropriate topologies and developing an overall power system architecture. He/she should enjoy hands-on building and debugging of circuits. During the development phase of a project, the candidate would work closely with other engineers, suppliers and the factories in Mexico, Malaysia, Hungary, or Elgin, Illinois. Some travel may be required.
