Software Engineering
Arlington, TX, USA
Posted on Tuesday, June 4, 2024
Ready to make connectivity from space universally accessible, secure and actionable? Then you’ve come to the right place!
E-Space is bridging Earth and space to enable hyper-scaled deployments of Internet of Things (IoT) solutions and services. We are building a highly-advanced low Earth orbit (LEO) space system that will fundamentally change the design, economics, manufacturing and service delivery associated with traditional satellite and terrestrial IoT systems.
We’re intentional, we’re unapologetically curious and we’re 100% committed to innovate space-based communications and deliver actionable intelligence that will expand global economies, protect space and our planet and enhance our overall quality of life.

What you will do

  • Lead the fabrication of antenna prototypes
  • Actively communicate what successful fabrication looks like
  • Lead in-test equipment set-up, including set-up of antenna chambers
  • Partner with key vendors to successfully implement critical test set-ups and ongoing maintenance initiatives
  • Characterize the prototypes of antennas and feedings for matching and impedance testing
  • Produce documentation and clearly communicate antenna performance, including matching and OTA performance and progress
  • Document results

What you bring to this role

  • MSc/PhD degree in Electrical Engineering specializing in Antenna, Electromagnetics and/or RF
  • Experience in electromagnetic simulation tools (e.g., CST, HFSS), or circuit simulation

Bonus points for the following

  • 1+ year of experience using at least one wireless communication system, preferably GNSS
  • 1+ year of experience in designing antenna system solutions for consumer electronics, especially devices or mobile electronics
  • Experience with antenna measurement techniques using common RF test equipment (e.g., spectrum analyzers, network analyzers) and antenna chambers
  • Familiarity with global regulatory requirements
  • Experience with basic RF concepts such as impedance matching and smith chart
  • Hands on experience with antenna prototyping tools and techniques
  • Strong interest to work in a fast paced startup atmosphere
  • Excellent communication skills—both written and verbal
We are redefining how satellites are designed, manufactured and used—so we’re looking for candidates with passion, deep knowledge and direct experience on LEO satellite component development, design and in-orbit activities. If that’s your experience – then we’ll be immediately wow-ed.
