Sr. DSP Engineer (Radar)
Array Labs is building a distributed radar imaging constellation to power the first accurate, real-time 3D map of the world.
As a DSP Engineer on the Radar Imaging team, you will have the unique opportunity to shape the design of the first orbital MIMO radar imaging system. In this critical role, you will be collaborating with silicon, antenna, software, and other engineering teams to create cutting-edge hardware, rapidly advancing designs from clean sheets of paper to operational deployment in space.
- System-level design to support a novel satellite communication and radar imaging system
- Work closely with ASIC/FPGA, RF/antenna, and software engineers to design and validate high-performance radar imaging and digital communication systems
- Develop floating-point and fixed-point models and build simulations to analyze system level performance
- Generate bit-accurate and cycle-accurate vector models to support RTL design verification
- Create spacecraft hardware requirements, specifications, and test procedures
- Develop and implement test plans for hardware verification and validation
- Bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering, computer engineering, computer science, physics, or related field
- 6+ years of experience in system-level modeling and digital signal processing
- Excellent teamwork and communication skills
- Learns new concepts rapidly, completely, and in a self-directed manner
- High levels of self-motivation and personal accountability
- Ability to work in a fast-paced environment under significant time constraints
- Proficient in MATLAB, C/C++, and/or Python
