Job Type

Imagine, develop and deliver advanced communications technologies that will enable the next generation of non-terrestrial networks.

TTP is a collaborative consultancy driven by a passion for cutting-edge product development. Joining our Satellite & Space market team, you will leverage your existing RF skillset to create new blue-sky systems and technologies as well as to develop existing ones. Shape your role the way you want, with collaborative opportunities in business development, project management and the opportunity to focus on a particular technical challenge at system or device level. At every step you’ll have creative space and the support of a multidisciplinary team. Our facilities are varied with a dedicated Satellite & Space RF laboratory including anechoic chamber as well as an on-site micro-fabrication facility and general physics and materials laboratories.

Within Satellite & Space, you will be working on diverse projects ranging from designing systems for reliable and ubiquitous connectivity (for example, to enable drones delivering blood samples between hospitals) to designing systems for satellite connectivity that enable constellations for earth observation and monitoring to track and decelerate climate change. Opportunities also exist for working outside of the Satellite & Space group offering specialist RF support to other TTP market teams whose operations include market-focused industrial and medical applications.

About you

As we enter the “new space” era with the realm of space opening up to commercialisation, the Satellite & Space team at TTP appreciates that core skillsets from a diverse range of backgrounds are likely to be transferable to our exciting projects in the satellite and space sector. These roles are therefore open to experienced engineers and recent graduates and post-docs. TTP values ambition, leadership, technical excellence, collaboration and great communication.

Your application will stand out if you have:

  • A 1st or Upper 2nd Bachelor/Master’s degree, or equivalent in Electronics, Electrical Engineering or a related subject
  • Strong fundamentals of RF/microwave with hands-on experience designing RF circuits and systems
  • Knowledge of electronic hardware design
  • Knowledge of test and measurement equipment aiding in RF design
  • Ability to communicate technical concepts clearly
  • Creativity and a hands-on attitude
  • Good interpersonal skills and ability to support and work with an interdisciplinary team
  • Initiative to seek out and explore new opportunities
  • Knowledge of antenna and phased array design is desirable, but not essential

Our working culture encourages entrepreneurship, shared ideas and technical collaboration, while providing you with the freedom to do your best work. We value our collaborative culture and the benefit in-person interaction brings to our colleagues and to the business.
