RF Design Engineer at WS Audiology

Do you want to work with technology that improves the life quality for millions of hearing-impaired people worldwide? Do you want to be part of a dynamic team that works with the next generation of hearing aids? Do you like size and compatibility challenges that are far from textbook problems? Then you may be the RF design engineer, we are looking for.
WSAudiology is expanding our focus on Bluetooth enabled hearing aids. The Bluetooth functionality play a significant role in our customer’s daily interaction with their hearing aids and mobile phones. We are looking for a new colleague to strengthen our ability to integrate Bluetooth, magnetic radios etc..
About the job
As RF Design Engineer you will have the responsibility for the development of various radios including Bluetooth for the next generation hearing aids. You will also have the responsibility for limiting system-to-system interference within the hearing aid. You will be involved in the development of hearing aids from idea to product. You will be an important player during hearing aid concept development and when initiating new development projects.
Some of your daily tasks as an RF Design Engineer are:
  • Design of radio circuits for Bluetooth and NFMI
  • Measurement of hearing aid prototypes in the lab or in Widex’ anechoic chamber.
  • Debugging internal electromagnetic interference problems
  • Collaboration with other engineering disciplines and production to find the best possible solutions
  • Simulation of interference and key performance parameters in HFSS, CST etc.
  • Investigations of future technologies for hearing aids
  • Regulatory compliance testing

Since the size and efficiency are two essential parameters of the hearing aid development, it is important that you feel passionate about development of small, efficient radio solutions that deliver the required performance despite of the compact physical conditions in a hearing aid.
You will be working on projects in a dynamic environment, where contributions from many different stakeholders and professions need to be aligned to develop the best possible products for our customers. You will be working in a small team with other RF and Antenna designers and you will have weekly contact with other RF experts in sister teams in both Singapore and Germany.
You should expect 10 to 15 traveling days per year.
You hold a bachelor/master’s degree within electronic engineer or similar. You can be newly educated or have practical experience within some of the following areas:
  • Electromagnetism and interference
  • Simulation of electromagnetics
  • Measurement of antenna and radio performance
  • Documentation of design and test – preferably within compliance of medical device directive
  • Electrical hardware design in relation to RF
  • Compliance testing

Performance and personal competencies

  • Understand the need for trade-offs between electronics and mechanics and between quality, cost and schedule.
  • Innovative mindset and a good drive, and you like to show results.
  • Enjoy working independently when required, can stay organized and can make decisions.
