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 ...

Job Description:

FreeWave Technologies WP201We are looking for a Senior Level RF Design Engineer. The ideal candidate will have experience designing and developing data radios from concept through production-ready on multiple products using a mix of discrete RF components and integrated circuits. The ideal candidate will also have a strong understanding of radio system design and have a deep understanding of the tradeoffs at both the design and system level to achieve a product that meets specifications. Candidate will have proven design experience in: receivers, transmitters, synthesizers, VCO's, lumped element filters, and power conditioning circuits – and have a deep understanding of the tradeoffs within each subsystem with respect to overall radio system performance, power efficiency, cost, and schedule. Next, the ideal candidate must have experience designing with manufacturability in mind, and have experience ramping products in production at the end of the R&D cycle.

We are looking for a high-performance design leader who values information-sharing between peers and enjoys teaching and mentoring others in a positive/respectful environment.

Work should be performed at the FreeWave Technologies location in Boulder, CO unless otherwise specified by functional management
