EE UAV Avionics Design and Certification

Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) in civil airspace are the next big thing. Sagetech is a leader in UAV avionics and has exciting projects starting now in FAA / military UAV design and certification. We are building a kick-ass team. 
You might fit if this grabs you:  We seek highly talented, disciplined, imaginative engineers (RF design, embedded, or FPGA programmers) who love creating novel and highly efficient solutions in a requirements-based design environment. That’s not easy. We seek team members who are like us, who are energized by challenge.
Positions ($80-120K DOE, competitive benefits): Principal Engineer

What’s in it for you
  • Work with top talent to create avionics with titles like “world’s smallest…”, “world’s lightest…”, etc.
  • Rack up experience in UAV avionics design/certification.  (Demand for this experience will increase as UAVs face broader certification requirements, driven by civil use).
  • Challenge with a capital “C”.  To set records our designs have to be unconventional, so pushing hard is a must.  It’s how we keep our competitive advantage strong.
  • Small, dynamic company where you have strong influence over your work environment.
  • Excellent pay/benefits (At Sagetech we enjoy highly competitive compensation, but we are primarily motivated by our passion for excellence and elegance in design.)
Location Location Location
  • Hood River, Oregon/ White Salmon, Washington.  The heart of the Columbia River Gorge “One of the coolest small towns in the US” – Budget Travel.  “5th best adventure town” – National Geographic Adventure. “Best place to raise an outdoor kid” – Backpacker Magazine. Only an easy hour drive to Portland!
Maybe you qualify- You need:
  • US citizenship and willingness to work on classified programs (security clearance will be processed after hire as necessary).
  • An excellent attitude, ability to work independently, high attention to detail
  • Demonstrated expertise in your field, and effectiveness in collaborating in cross-discipline design (hardware/mechanical/software).  We need smart people.
Stronger applicants have
  • RF design, including close attention to compact layout
  • Project management / team leadership
  • Requirements based design (MIL-STD, DO-178B, DO-254, etc.)
  • Familiarity with:
    • FAA TSO process
    • UAVs in the 0-500 lb weight class
    • Efficient design that exceeds requirements - it’s not enough to merely make it work.
More Detail

    Kirt Blattenberger,

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available in the form of WYSIWYG ...
