Job Summary

Skyworks is searching for an intelligent, creative, highly motivated individual to join our acoustic filter design team in Greensboro, NC.  The candidate will be responsible for the design, development, and integration of SAW and BAW filters for mobile handset applications, working closely with domestic and international teams of RF design engineers.  The work will require multidisciplinary expertise, including the design of RF acoustic filters; electromagnetic modeling and integration into multi-chip modules; interfacing with active devices such as switches, LNAs, and PAs; thermomechanical modeling for high-power applications; and nonlinear analysis of RF communications systems.  The candidate must be able to create and present design reviews to demonstrate performance and compliance to specifications using simulated and measured results.  Detailed performance requirements for the filter design will be created by the systems, module, and component engineering groups along with input from the filter design team.  The candidate will interface with the above teams, reporting their design progress, including the identification, tracking, and resolution of any performance issues.



- Master's degree in Electrical Engineering (MSEE) a minimum, Ph.D. preferred

- Prior internship experience for MSEE candidates

- Candidates must have a background in SAW and/or BAW filter design or related RF technologies.  An understanding of device physics, the ability to develop and use advanced modeling techniques to design filters, and the fluency to translate among the model, simulation, physical implementation, and measured performance of a device are all requirements for this position. 

- Expert in simulation and CAD tools (such as ADS or AWR, HFSS, Cadence, etc.), RF device characterization techniques, and associated test equipment. 

- Excellent communicator and must be able to break down complex problems, set priorities, report progress, and execute to a schedule. 


PREFERRED:  Candidates with 10+ years of acoustic filter and/or RF module design experience are preferred, but individuals with less experience will be considered if they can demonstrate that they’re creative, highly motivated, able to learn quickly, and good at solving problems.  Experience in related mobile handset technologies, such as PA design, SOI switch design, LNA design, module development, and large-signal analog circuit design would be valuable.
