What You’ll Do:

  • Maintain and expand the Linux-based internal test network, leveraging a thorough understanding of networking concepts particularly at layers 2, 3, and 4
  • Strike a balance between supporting hyper-specific, quickly changing requirements of individual test systems and efficient management of hundreds of such systems while maintaining best practices
  • Design, develop, and extend custom test frameworks and test beds
  • Write software that interfaces with Starry hardware, both as a complete system and in test harnesses
  • Develop software and services that improve efficiency for other validation engineers, in all roles described above


Requirements:

  • Strong interpersonal skills and a love of learning
  • Bachelor's degree in Software, Computer, or Electrical Engineering, equivalent experience, or a strong open-source portfolio

  • Understanding of the Linux networking stack
  • Experience in the natural sciences and experimental methodology
  • Knowledge of IEEE 802.11n/ac/ax, 3G/4G/5G wireless communications standards and protocols
  • Experience with Wi-Fi functional, performance or stability testing
  • Experience with RF systems concepts and related test equipment (e.g. spectrum analyzers)

 

We work hard, so we take care of each other and try to enjoy ourselves along the way. We have:

  • Premium medical, dental, and vision coverage with no employee contribution required
  • 12 weeks of paid parental leave
  • Catered meals on a weekly basis
  • Groups for skiing, biking, running, climbing, stretching, shuffleboard, darts, and more
