Senior Vice President (VP) Engineering - Satellite Antennas (UK
My client is an exciting start-up who have been acknowledged as one of the top ten 'hottest' companies to watch in the satellite antenna field! Currently closing a series A funding round, they're now primed to build the senior leadership team who will bring a unique product to market - one which is set to disrupt the sector.
The breakthrough they've made is designing a high performing Satellite Antenna with 75% less components, meaning lower manufacturing costs and footprint. It also offers high capacity bandwidth across multiple frequencies and is therefore hugely applicable to a broad range of markets including aeronautical, maritime, military, 5G, automotive (connected car) etc.
The Senior Vice President (SVP) of Engineering is required to build the technical team and ultimately deliver products that meet performance, cost and quality metrics. Reporting in to the CTO, this person will also co-develop the technical strategy and set up/oversee programmes and projects to ensure the targets are realised.
The successful candidate will need:
- A MSc in electrical/electronic engineering, or similar
- 10+ years in Systems Engineering, RF Engineering, or similar
- Exceptional knowledge in antennas/ satcomms
- A track record in product development (product management)
- Experience building and managing a technical team
- A strong background in project management; software and hardware design; and testing/troubleshooting
This role could be based in Reading (UK) or Maryland (US) and is a rare opportunity to be at the helm of a disruptive product launch, with extremely high potential to change the market.
