  • Provide broad technical expertise and mentor junior engineers within the team


  • Highly motivated, pro-active self-starter
  • Strong sense of ownership and responsibility
  • Creative thinker with strong problem-solving skills
  • Team oriented attitude
  • Ability to thrive in a multicultural environment
  • Ability to communicate well with cross-functional teams
  • Excellent written and oral communications skills


  • Engineering degree in a relevant discipline. BSc, MSc or equivalent
  • 5 to 10 years’ experience of relevant IC development
  • Fluent English speaker
  • Recent successful RFIC / analogue project contributions on highly integrated RF transceivers, ideally related to broadband wireless communication systems, e.g. WiFi or LTE, on a nanometre scale RF-CMOS technology
  • Understanding of low power / low noise design techniques for analogue and RF
  • Knowledge of Design for Manufacture considerations on cutting edge processes
  • Full appreciation of RF and analogue layout techniques


  • Proficiency in Cadence and/or Mentor frontend and backend tools are absolutely required
  • Familiarity with RF lab equipment such as signal generators, spectrum analyzers, and vector signal analyzers is required


  • Wideband IF circuits for broadband transceivers (including high-speed operational amplifiers and filters)
  • Multi-band RF circuit design in the 700MHz to 7GHz range
  • Design experience with circuits such as amplifiers, low power oscillators, low drop out regulators, data converters, high precision biasing techniques, etc.
  • RFIC system and architecture design, ideally for OFDM applications
  • RFIC sub-system and block level definition & specification


  • System simulation
  • Integrated single chip RF + digital baseband projects
  • Top level chip simulation and functional verification
  • Analogue behavioral language modeling (e.g. Verilog-AMS)
  • Mixed-mode simulation environments (e.g. mixed Verilog and device level)
  • Direct conversion Rx and Tx architectures and associated considerations
  • DFT and BIST for analogue and RF circuits
  • Silicon test and de-bugging
