RF Jobs

RF and Microwave Engineering is a niche industry sector that has lots of subsets within it. We have experience recruiting engineers doing everything from working on entire RF systems to engineers working on specific RF elements such as antennas, receivers, transceivers and synthesisers.

As an electronics recruitment agency, we specialise in niche roles within this sector such as RF engineers. We’ve got the industry knowledge and experience to know exactly what is required for these kinds of opportunities and offer an unmatched quality of service for both candidates and clients.

Skills and Responsibilities

  • 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?

    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 several 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.

    We 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.

    We have also 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.

    Our skill knowledge within RF coupled with our experience recruiting RF skills for a wide range of industry sectors ensures that we understand our candidates’ and clients’ needs, ensuring every opportunity is well matched.
