Radar Engineer

As a Radar Engineer at Numerica, you will develop state of-the-art radar systems that bring revolutionary technology to our DoD customers.  We are seeking engineers that excel at developing integrated hardware and software systems for RF sensing. Working in small innovative teams, our engineers build solutions that make a difference. Our research endeavors don’t end with papers and reports – we are building mission-critical operational systems that will make our customers within government and industry successful. As science fiction writer Arthur Clarke wrote, “Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.” Numerica is seeking talented “magicians” to join in our common struggle and expand the boundaries of what’s possible.

What You Will Do:

  • Create new radar technology that will expand our customer’s ideas of what's possible;
  • Contribute to the direction of a talented small team with your expertise and ideas;
  • Design, develop, and implement advanced radar DSP algorithms for real-time application;
  • Design and develop custom hardware solutions for RF sensing systems;
  • Integrate custom and off-the-shelf hardware components for testing and deployment;
  • Create alignment across algorithms, software, and hardware in our radar products;
  • Engage with customers, to ensure successful outcomes for their mission-critical needs;
  • Help your colleagues and customers understand what you’re doing and why.


  • A Radar Engineer at Numerica should possess an M.S. or Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering or a related field.
  • A Radar Engineer should have a record of academic excellence and demonstrated experience in one or more of the following areas:
    • Radar Signal Processing: pulse compression, mono-pulse processing, digital beam forming, waveform design, CFAR, radar imaging and micro-doppler.
    • Radar Analog and Digital Hardware: RF receiver design and implementation, software defined radios, software management and control of RF hardware, phased array antennas, RF conversion, channel synchronization, clock distribution.
    • Embedded Systems: FPGA programming, HDL coding (VHDL, Verilog, etc.), embedded software development, high-throughput/low-latency data management, algorithm and software optimization, design and HDL implementation of DSP algorithms.
  • A Radar Engineer should have effective written and verbal communication skills, with the demonstrated ability to convey salient details about advanced technology in a compelling manner to both experts and non-experts alike.​


Due to the nature of the work performed at Numerica, all applicants must be capable of obtaining a U.S. Security Clearance. At a minimum, this requires that a candidate be a U.S. citizen with a personal history indicating trustworthiness, reliability, and sound judgment (e.g., clean criminal record, no use of illegal drugs, etc.).
