Skills and Responsibilities of RF Engineers

  • The typical RF engineering candidate we recruit has skills and experience in RF design, RF systems, knowledge of antenna design and optimisation, and knowledge of EM simulators and using RF test equipment such as network analysers and spectrum analysers
  • Aside from having the relevant RF development experience, our opportunities usually require knowledge of working with other wireless communications protocols such as Bluetooth, BLE, 3G, 4G, Thread, Zigbee and WiFi.
  • We work with RF engineers who have experience in architectural design, systems design, component-level testing and a good understanding of EMC.
  • Our previous RF engineer candidates have been placed in roles working throughout the whole product development lifecycle, but candidates may benefit from having experience working at multiple different stages
  • Why KO2?

    RF and microwave engineering is a niche industry sector that has lots of subsets within it. KO2 has experience recruiting engineers doing everything from working on entire RF systems to engineers working on specific Radio Frequency elements such as antennas, receivers, transceivers and synthesisers.

    We have 25 years of experience recruiting RF engineers for a range of different electronics and embedded systems businesses. During this time, we have recruited for many different roles within RF development, including RF Systems Engineers, Junior RF Design Engineers, Senior RF Design Engineers, Principal RF Design Engineers, RF Architects and RF Test Engineers.

    KO2 also have experience placing RF engineers throughout the RF development lifecycle. This means working from developing the antenna, the RF system, RF component selection, working with transmitters and synthesising knowledge of sub-GHz/Bluetooth/WiFi/ZigBee front-end design and optimisation, right the way through to reverse engineering an RF system.

    Our recrtuiment work has provided RF engineering skills to businesses in a wide range of industry sectors. This has included Agricultural, Audio, Automotive, Cellular Networks, Consumer, Defence, Home Automation, IoT, Instrumentation, Medical, Military, Rail, Satellite Communication, Smart Metering, Scientific, Wearables and Wireless devices.

    We’ve got the skill knowledge within RF coupled with our experience recruiting RF skills to know exactly what is required for these kinds of opportunities and offer an unmatched quality of service for both candidates and clients.
