Senior RFIC Design Engineer, Sophia Antipolis (France) or Reading (UK)


We are searching for a Senior level radio frequency integrated circuit (RFIC) design engineer to join a strong group of RFIC designers to help lead us in the development of RF transceivers to address the LTE 5G markets. Working within a dynamic design team you will participate in the development of next generation RFIC products for 5G wireless communication networks.


  • Specify, design and verify key circuits and sub-systems of integrated RF transceivers
  • Work closely with other teams to facilitate the design and production process,e.g. Software, Signal Processing, Product Integration, Sales & Marketing
  • 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

Required experience:

  • 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 project contributions on highly integrated RF transceivers, ideally related to broadband wireless communication systems, e.g. WiFi or LTE, on a nano-metre 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 baseband layout techniques

Required detailed knowledge at system level:

  • RFIC System and architecture design, ideally for OFDM applications
  • RFIC Sub-system and block level definition & specification
  • System simulation

    Additional useful experience may include:

    • 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
