Introduction:

EMTensor is looking for a candidate for the position of Senior Test Engineer, with experience in tomographer and medical device/capital equipment deployment in pursuit of FDA/CE mark marketing approval. Test experience with Tx/DAC and Rx/ADC in the microwave region of the spectrum (1-10 GHz or wider), RF power and phase measurement (S parameters) and switching resource management in pursuit of relative permittivity mapping image reconstruction of the internals of humans (e.g. brain) is desired. The qualified candidate will be a highly collaborative, strongly technical leader, with the proven ability to influence the development of real-time RF tomography, signal/spatial/electrical characteristics reconstruction, interference detection and mitigation, relative permittivity volume measurement, digital cellular and IP network related communications systems, and overall medical device (type II) technology to benefit our customers.

Responsibilities and Duties:

  • RF systems and software specification testing (embedded, UX and Cloud GPU clusters with 100s nodes) and costing of materials, labor and time required for each test project
  • Automated regression testing, image quality and UX for all aspects of our systems
  • Performing requirements flow-down/decomposition to subsystem/system requirements and acceptance test plans in a requirements management system, e.g. DOORS and reviewing operational analysis and test procedures to assure integrated performance meets specification.
  • Identifying EMI/EMC issues at the overall system level as well as down to module, PCB and component level, to include RFIC SOC implementations
  • Partnering with customers, business development partners, and the executive management team on questions about our systems capabilities
  • Winning customer confidence through integrity, technical communication, problem solving, and capability demonstrations.
  • Writing internal and external facing documents about EMTensor systems technology
  • Facilitating collaboration with the reconstruction, hardware and software teams and other (contract) engineering functions on systems test issues
  • Team leadership, growth and development

Qualifications:

  • Medical imaging system test experience, including DICOM format and workflow under RIS/PACS, especially in refinement of man machine interface (physical & software, covering the patient and clinician experience)
  • Ability to learn/innovate through curiosity in the field of systems for software defined radio (SDR) links
  • Digital signal processing algorithm test (constant false alarm rate, detection probability maximization) using C++/Python and FPGA firmware technology knowledge
  • Ability to test RF link budget analyses, cascade analyses, functional decomposition, studies/trade-offs in support of subsystem specification and hardware, firmware and software design recommendations
  • Comfort working closely with senior engineers and mentoring junior technical contributors on simultaneous top-down/bottom-up test and configuration for RF/microwave communication/monitoring systems
  • Experience in designing testing systems/fixtures in a multi-disciplinary environment including developing and writing software for test and integration
  • Experience developing system test plans, participating in system level testing and fault diagnostics
  • RF/Microwave electronics/measurements experience and use of RF Test and Measurement Equipment such as Spectrum Analyzers, Network Analyzers, signal generators, Logic Analyzers, and ideally signal/channel generator/analyzers for narrow and wide bandwidths of operation
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills on test matters in support of business development

Preferences:

  • Experience in antenna testing for different RF communications/Tomography and data delivery methods, as well as transmission through highly lossy materials.
  • Experience in the testing AI for insight from ideally medical image applications.
  • Experience with C/C++/C#, SystemC, bash, PERL, LabView/Windows, .NET, PERL, Python testing.
  • Knowledge of database design and configuration such as PostGres, Microsoft SQL testing.
  • Experience with automating, and scripting test deployments in virtualized environments (VMware and KVM), cloud (AWS, Openstack, Azure, Google), and physical servers
  • Familiar with Windows and LINUX operating systems
  • Experience of Matlab/Simulink (DSP-Builder/equivalent) for development of Embedded C++/FPGA modules
  • Ability to synthesize waveforms in HW – Arbitrary Waveform and channel model creation in VSG
  • Knowledge of digital, RF, mechanical and software test disciplines
  • Familiarity with test for Networking, TCP/IP, UDP, SIP/RTP, DNS, DHCP, cloud technologies
  • Knowledge of network diagnostics tools such as Wireshark and tcpdump
  • Experience with validation and verification methodologies and coverage tools
  • Experience with JTAG, digital/analog functional and RF parametric test development
  • Experience in developing test structures using System Verilog/Universal Verification Methodology (UVM)
  • Ability to work closely with commercial/government customers/users during design and testing phases
  • Familiar with test for configuration management tools (ansible, puppet, etc.)
  • Experience in an Agile/Scrum environment

Education and/or Experience: Bachelor’s degree (BA/BS) in electrical engineering, computer science, systems engineering, or closely related field (must be from accredited college or university); MSCS/MSEE would be a decided plus; minimum 5 years related experience.

Language Skills: Ability to read/analyze/interpret business periodicals/professional journals/technical procedures/(government) regulations. Ability to write test specifications/test reports/business correspondence/procedures/manuals.

Interpersonal Skills: The ability to actively pursue technical solutions by consensus between different technical groups. The ability to run productive meetings on technical topics is also required.

Presentation Skills: Demonstrated ability to effectively present information and respond to questions from groups of developers, managers, clients, customers, and the general public.

Reasoning Ability: Ability to solve practical problems and deal with a variety of variables in situations where only limited standardization exists. Ability to interpret instructions furnished in written/oral/diagram/schedule form.
