About the Company
ALCAN is a fast-growing company working towards a future where every moving vehicle (cars, ships, trains, planes) has broadband connection by using ALCAN’s groundbreaking liquid crystal based smart antennas. ALCAN’s patented technology enables ultra-thin, lightweight flat panel antennas which can track satellites fully electronically without any moving parts.
We are looking for enthusiastic individuals who want to be a part of this exciting change and work towards developing these antennas to make a global impact by enabling communication easier for every human being.
We have an open full-time position for an RF/EM Test Engineer in Darmstadt, Germany.
ALCAN offers a generous relocation package to cover the moving costs if the employee is outside of the southern Frankfurt Rhein-Main area.
RF/EM Test Engineer will be involved with the entire RF team and will be performing various RF/EM test and measurement tasks for liquid crystals (LC) based phased array antennas and its related microwave components. Thus, the candidate needs to have solid technical understanding of RF/microwave circuits, a track record of measurements of RF hardware. The RF/EM Test Engineer should be familiar with vector network analyzer, RF signal generator, antennas, spectrum analyzer and oscilloscope. The RF/EM Test Engineer is also responsible for the maintenance and long-term quality check of laboratory equipment.
