Software Defined Radio ( SDR ), GNU centric – Job Order 3112

Red Bank, NJ,Basking Ridge, NJ, or Silver Spring, MD
Clearance preferred but not required
Wireless experience needs to be more than cellular
Compensation DOE

They are more than a research lab; they are an innovation hub. They have an entreprenurial spirit molding technology of the future. They are involved in cybersecurity, data analytics, advanced networking, wireless and mobility, display technologies, optical and quantum, power grid and IoT security, and electronic warfare. The industries they work in include smart cities and smart phones, intelligent battlefields and autonomous systems, telecommunications, energy, finance, government, life sciences and defense. They have 225 scientists, engineers and analysts on staff, 260+ issued, licensed and pending patents. They have more than 125 PhD’s on staff, 40+ collaborations with universities, research organizations and vendors. Additionally they have 100+ on-going customer-funded research and technology programs.


The candidate will be responsible for designing and developing major enhancements to Software Defined Radio (SDR) frameworks. A core understanding of real-time signal processing implementation methodologies and currently available open source SDR frameworks such as GNU Radio is desirable.

Familiarity with wireless standards and their implementation in SDR frameworks is desirable. You will work in teams to research concepts and develop cutting edge solutions to complex problems. You will also be required to communicate the results of research through open source community presentations and publications. Must work well collaboratively and individually. In this position, candidates will be developing radio solutions to help solve complex problems. Main responsibilities include:

Creating, enhancing, and maintaining the software components of SDR frameworks
Implementing and integrating hardware accelerated (GPU/FPGA) signal processing blocks to interface into SDR frameworks
Writing design documents, benchmarking reports, and system documentation.

Note from the hiring manager:
I’m more interested in folks that will be programming existing SDRs rather than designing them. So I’d steer further away from radio design engineers and more towards software developers (C/C++/Python) whom have RF experience, preferably with programming SDRs such at Ettus USRPs, Epiq Solutions devices, etc.


Requires 3 to 5 years with BS/BA or 1 to 2 years with MS/MA

In addition:
Experience in developing SDR solutions
Knowledge of GPU programming (OpenCL or CUDA)
Knowledge of embedded software development
Familiarity of open source development practices
BS/BA, MS/MA, Ph.D. or equivalent experience in Computer Science, or Electrical and Computer Engineering
Strong written and spoken communications/presentation skills
U.S. Citizen required with ability to obtain clearance
