Principal RF ATE Developer Engineer, UK – Reading, M4 Corridor


As part of the Hardware-Platform team you will be working on ATE development to support multiple HW RF project for our 4G/5G portfolio.
Using Python or similar programming tool is needed, ideally with RF and/or Hardware development experience.


  • To maintain, improve and fix backbone, to develop future evolution for R&D characterisation & System ATE, to optimise report tools post processing multiple run
  • To Provide broad technical expertise, analyse issues & isolate whether FW, tool, test equipment or HW regression
  • To Propose & Define future evolutions needs, advise prioritisation and implement changes
  • To manage GUI interface, documentation updates and be responsive to fix issues as they arise


  • Engineering degree/MSc in Computing, Maths or Engineering
  • 10 years’ work experience in Python or C++ programming (working on ATE tools in telecoms environment a plus)
  • Troubleshoot and solve ATE problems.
  • Demonstrate analytical expertise by providing the needed conclusions.
  • Knowledge of production ATE environment, sockets, timing constraints, statistical spread, RMA a plus
  • Understanding RF performance, noise, dynamic range, RF matching, filtering, conducted and radiated measurements
  • Understanding of LTE/NBIOT/5GRF testing a plus
  • Some travel may be required between company and customer sites

Required detailed knowledge at ATE level:

  • ATE coding experience using Python or similar programming tool
  • Familiarity with controlling lab equipment such as signal generators, spectrum analysers, vector signal analysers, multi meters, oven, power supplies is needed
  • Familiar with ATE communication protocols, speed, remote access

    Preferred detailed knowledge at RF level:

    • Analytical skill
    • Understanding TX and RX performance degradation causes and interconnections

    Additional useful experience may include:

    • RF Simulation
    • 3GPP standard awareness
