Benchmark provides comprehensive solutions across the entire product lifecycle; leading through its innovative technology and engineering design services, leveraging its optimized global supply chain, and delivering world-class manufacturing services. The industries we serve include: commercial aerospace, defense, advanced computing, next generation telecommunications, complex industrials, medical, and semiconductor capital equipment.

Benchmark is hiring an RF Design Engineer for our RF and High-Speed Design Center of Excellence in Phoenix, AZ. This design center focuses on radio and high-speed solutions across multiple markets and is equipped with VHDI PCB fabrication manufacturing and well as Micro-E and SMT lines. It is designed as a one-stop shop for customer design and manufacturing requirements.

This role will work with cutting edge EW, Radar, and radio technologies for A&D, Medical, Industrial, and Telco applications. They’ll be responsible for radio subsystem level analysis, modeling, and testing, coordinating design at the block or component level and ensuring compliance to subsystem level specifications.
Working with peers in the RF and High-Speed Design team, this person will:
•Be the voice of the customer: interpret customer specifications and perform the necessary analysis and simulations to guarantee full compliance.
•Identify emerging solutions that can be integrated into project designs early in the design cycle to enhance performance.
•Lead design reviews and oversee the project development while continuously optimizing for maximum specification margin through the entire design cycle.
Focus will be on linear and non-linear block level design or component selection, how each piece, along with the control and biasing circuitry, fit into the RF subsystem and interact with one another, all the while trying to push the edge of SWaP-C.
