Communications System Engineer

AMERGINT Technologies is seeking to hire an entry-level Communications Systems Engineer. This position entails the design and implementation of modems and related algorithms, in a software radio environment. In this role, the engineer will participate in distilling waveform descriptions into working transmitters and receivers. This position will be located in Colorado Springs, CO.

***** Relocation assistance may be available

What You Will Get to Do

  • You will be expected to participate with senior staff engineers in the design of modulators and demodulators for the following waveforms: BPSK, QPSK, M-PSK, M-QAM, M-ary FSK, and variations on continuous phase modulation (CPM) including CPFSK, SOQPSK, MSK, and GMSK.
  • Design modulators and demodulators
  • You will implement communications and algorithms
  • Design and implement next generation software modems
  • Work with senior staff and customers to identify new technology trends and value added product features

What Qualifications You Will Bring

  • Master’s degree in Electrical Engineering (or equivalent), with an emphasis is Communications Systems and DSP (Digital Signal Processing)
  • 2+ years of work experience post Master’s degree.
  • Familiar with scripting languages (e.g. Python) with a willingness to become proficient if hired.
  • Experience with C/C++ programming and MATLAB
  • Familiar with modern communication systems, including digital communications, source and channel coding, detection, equalization, timing and carrier recovery, and common forms of feedforward estimation.
  • Familiar with modern forms of channel coding, including block codes, LDPC, Turbo coding, convolutional codes, and related decoding (e.g. Viterbi Algorithm).
  • Familiar with digital signal processing (DSP) for things such as filter design and link-level simulation.

These Qualifications are Nice to Have

  • Familiarity with Python, including the MATLAB-like features of Python is a plus
  • Fresh-out Ph.D. graduates would also be considered
  • Experience with spread-spectrum waveforms and systems is a plus
