Applied Technology is a custom design center within Motorola Solutions. We create proof-of-concept and lower-volume specialty communications products for government and private industry using such technologies as GSM, UMTS, CDMA, LTE, and embedded systems. Our customer-centric, team based environment provides an excellent growth opportunity for engineers and developers in enterprise markets where innovation is the primary focus.
Applied Technology is seeking a highly talented and technically strong individual to fulfill a Technical Lead / Systems Engineering role.
In this technical position, the role will have unique and varied responsibilities. Candidates for this position are engineers with diverse knowledge and a wide variety of interests.
As a key resource across multiple product teams, the successful candidate will handle these and other tasks:
Hardware design including digital (memory, FPGA, microprocessors), analog (A/D & D/A converters, op-amps, LEDs, etc), power supplies & voltage regulators, interface logic, use of schematic capture tools (Cadence a plus), PCB routing, etc.
RF system link budget and tradeoff analysis
Architecture development - Drive product and feature requirements, architecture, design, and test strategy with customers and engineering teams
Requirements analysis - Lead product and feature development, primarily in the embedded communications space
Develop man-hour estimates for new feature work
Creation of test procedures, interface control documents and other documentation
Support full product development life-cycle: architecture, design, bring-up, integration of initial HW/SW, factory support, test & validation, and customer support
Seek out opinions & build trust/buy-in across all functional teams (hardware, RF, software, FPGA, mechanical, etc), as well as management and customers
Help motivate project staff, mentor junior engineers, and actively seek out ways to help team members
Develop technology and product roadmaps
