Tomorrow.io’s Space & Sensors team is responsible for the development of unique RF-based sensing systems, such as radar and sonar, from architecture through implementation. The team is also responsible for the development of corresponding spacecraft and constellations in support of Tomorrow.io’s Operation Tomorrow Space, which will collect data to be integrated seamlessly into our existing forecasting and modeling systems, revolutionizing global weather intelligence.

We’re looking for a Radar System Engineer to support and lead instrument design, development, integration, and validation of remote sensing radars for space and airborne applications. As a Radar Systems Engineer of Tomorrow.io you’ll lead internal and external resources to complete instrument development and deployment. The individual must be able to work in a highly collaborative environment. Management of subcontracts and relationships with external vendors is often required. Experience with space and airborne systems development and qualification is desired.

What you’ll do:

  • Support the development of Tomorrow.io satellites from initial concept through initial on-orbit operations to meet technical and schedule requirements.
  • Completion of systems engineering development, artifacts, and analyses supporting the design
  • Verification planning and execution (test definition and processing, various analyses, etc)
  • Radar calibration campaigns. From power measurements to corner reflectors, spherical point targets, and known surfaces data analysis.
  • Modeling and characterization of RF subsystems, digital subsystems, antennas, and integrated radars.
  • Management of subcontractors
  • Mechanical Interfaces, work closely with mechanical engineers in the design of instruments that meet the radar objectives of the mission.

What you bring:

  • Experience with remote sensing (RADAR). This is NOT a general system engineering position.
  • Good understanding of RF Payloads, KA-band (Precipitation frequency band) experience is a plus.
  • Navigate software and/or hardware aspects of radar development.
  • Experience working in a collaborative environment, have strong communication skills and not be afraid to ask for help.
  • Desire to work in a fast-paced, startup environment.

This position requires access to technology that is controlled under U.S. export control laws and regulations. Accordingly, this position is restricted to U.S. citizens, permanent residents and protected individuals unless and until any required licenses are obtained.
