LTE System Integration & Test Lead
Engineering | Santa Clara, CA | Full Time
Kumu Networks is revolutionizing the way wireless systems are built, using an innovative full-duplex wireless design developed by its co-founders at Stanford University. Wireless full-duplex allows a radio to transmit and receive signals at the same time using a single frequency channel. Kumu's patent pending full-duplex technology changes the basic assumptions on which current wireless radios are built, allowing for improved performance and reduced complexity across a variety of wireless devices and markets. Come help us change the future of wireless!
The LTE System Integration & Test Lead is responsible for driving the test development and execution of a novel LTE product. They will work with the software team to define and implement tests using a variety of emulation hardware from providers like IXIA, Rohde & Shwarz, Anritsu, and/or Agilent. They will contribute to product platform decisions by determining test criteria and evaluating eNB and UE solutions from a variety of vendors. They will be proficient at defining test plans, implementing/automating the tests, and summarizing results. They will be the first member of our SI&T team, and will help drive future expansion of the team as needed.
