We further believe you have a major interest in technology, just as we do, and are motivated by technical challenges and problem solving, which you will get a lot of here. You are a curious and communicative team-player that enjoys working both individually and in teams. It is important for you to always keep a holistic view but you can easily determine when it is needed to understand technical details.

We believe you have a Master of Science in Engineering; Technical Physics, Electrical Engineering, Software Engineering or equivalent. You have 10+ years of experience in working in high technology industry/industries, preferably as a systems engineer with RF or radar as your expertise.
