Senior Antenna Engineer
We are looking for a senior antenna engineer to our growing R&D organization!
Acconeer is a scale-up company where you get the opportunity to be at the frontline of miniaturized technology, integrating a complete 60GHz radar system in a package as small as 5x5mm! The Acconeer Hardware Integration (HWI) team operates in a versatile work environment where you get to work both on R&D projects as well as with customer support. We are currently looking for an engineer/PhD with a couple of years’ work experience within antenna and/or waveguide design.
Within the Acconeer HWI team we develop state-of-the-art mmWave antenna-in-package designs, customized mechanical designs for radar beam shaping and Printed Circuit Boards with integrated high-frequency antennas. The tools we use are mainly CST Design Studio and Altium, so good knowledge of these or similar tools for Electromagnetic modelling and PCB Layout is needed. The position includes both theoretical and practical work such as design simulation, prototype design and manufacturing. Measurements of the finished design using spectrum analyzer and vector network analyzer is also part of the daily work and we assume you are well familiar with using such equipment. Scripts for controlling measurement instruments and analyzing measurement data are written in Python and thus basic knowledge of Python is valuable.
The HWI team is slim (6 people currently), and we are always busy inventing tomorrow’s technology, so the position is a great opportunity for a responsible autonomous person with problem-solver attitude, a good ability to plan and break down work and excellent communication skills, looking to shape his/her profile based on areas of interest and the need of the team. If this sounds like you and you can back it up with a Master of Science in Electrical Engineering or Physics, or a PhD within a relevant field with antenna design and electromagnetic field theory as a specialty, come join us and contribute to the positive and friendly atmosphere of the Acconeer HWI team.
Acconeer is a young and innovative company developing the world´s smallest 60 GHz radar. The Acconeer radar sensor combines extremely low power consumption with sub-mm distance estimation accuracy. It enables distance measurements, micro-motion detection, material classification and much more, all within a sensor sized 5×5 mm including antennas. Acconeer is located in Västra Hamnen, Malmö, Sweden. We are currently a group of around 50 people with high R&D focus, working closely together over the R&D disciplines – hardware, software, and algorithm research. We have a large and growing international customer base in the IoT, consumer electronics, industrial and automotive segments which means our sensors are integrated in everything from robotic lawn mowers and touchless buttons to industrial tank-level gauges and parking sensors for smart cities.
Working at Acconeer
We love working in a scaleup where we have real possibilities to influence both the product and how we work. As we are a small company with open–minded employees it is always easy to discuss with people outside your team to satisfy your appetite for knowledge. We get to work with cutting edge technology in close collaboration with our colleagues. We believe that people are most efficient when we are allowed to plan our work life in a way that suits our individual needs and circumstances. So even though we all have our personal desk in our lovely office, working from home is a natural part of our way of working at Acconeer. If you feel the same way about teamwork and amazing technology, we’d love to meet you! For questions, contact recruiting manager Josefin Strahl at +46 (0)10 218 92 00.
