Challenge - Design next generation space and RF hardware
Come join a team that has the audacious goal to build a communication system that changes the world. Hiber delivers connectivity to sensor systems (IoT) with a global satellite footprint. It is low power and low cost so we enable use cases that would not be possible otherwise, because of connectivity issues. This enables global climate monitoring, precision farming, marine life protection and many other ways to improve life on earth.
As an electronic engineer you will design the heart of our system. You design, prototype, bring up and test electronics hardware for both ground and space segments. Your daily work focusses on designing next iterations of our user terminals, satellite subsystems and supporting hardware. The user terminal is a high volume modem that is both low cost and low power. Your day to day responsibility is to design next iterations of this device for production in the 100.000's and eventually millions.
The space segment consists of RF (Analog and software defined radio), processing and power supply boards that need to work in the harsh space environment and have challenging power and processing requirements. Also making them smaller and lighter saves a lot on launch costs. Your daily work is to drive the design to be more efficient on a few competing vectors (a.o. volume, power, processing and thermal).
What we have for you
You might have one or more of
To land this gig you will need to be comfortable designing big parts of our core system with a very small team. As such it helps (though not required!) if you can show that you have worked on one or more other subjects like software engineering, 3D modelling, mechanical engineering, thermal issues, space grade hardware etc. Internships, side projects and university teams all count. Just make sure that if you've done it, that we can pick up on some of that stuff in your cover letter (video works too) or resume.
Hiber is an eclectic team of like-minded, big-hearted and seriously motivated guys and girls who want to change the world, for good. Pushing the boundaries is what drives us. We love tech. More importantly, we love what we know it can do to make everyone’s life better. And it is that human touch, that desire to improve everything, that sets us all apart and gives us a real buzz. We think of ourselves as 21st century tech pioneers. Exploring new possibilities every day. Doing what no one ever dared to do before. And succeeding. For us, tech isn’t a new app, game or social media fad. It’s a chance to make a real difference, long-term. Not a quick buck short-term.
To date, we hang out in offices in Amsterdam and Delft (home of a big tech university) in the Netherlands. But with more and more, open-minded thinkers and doers wanting to join us, who knows where’s next. For the space junkies amongst you, we launch our satellites with PSLV in India and SpaceX from Cape Canaveral.
