RF Hardware Test Technician
Engineering | Sunnyvale, CA | Full Time
Kumu Networks is revolutionizing the way wireless systems are built using an innovative full-duplex wireless design that its co-founders developed at Stanford. 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!
