AnySignal is a startup whose mission is to usher in the next generation of RF products and services. For the most demanding space and defense missions, AnySignal provides a flexible platform with world-class performance that is easy to deploy, monitor, purchase, and upgrade.
Our team has a diverse range of backgrounds that cover cloud computing to artificial intelligence, communications and sensing, embedded systems, and much more.
We are seeking an experienced Engineering Manager to lead our dynamic teams of networking, embedded, DSP, FPGA, and hardware engineers in the design, development, and testing of critical software and hardware for our terrestrial and space-based communication systems. The ideal candidate will have an understanding of C++, C, VHDL programming languages, digital and mixed-signal circuit design, digital system simulation, high-speed digital circuits, and a background in Linux-based systems. Proven experience managing technical teams is required. This role requires someone who is equally comfortable overseeing project management and architecture, as well as providing technical mentorship to engineering teams.
- Lead a team of software engineers, DSP engineers, FPGA engineers, electrical engineers, and hardware technicians in the design and implementation of software, firmware, and hardware for flight computers, ground stations, and cloud environments.
- Oversee the development and implementation of networking protocols designed for space applications, packet multiplexing logic, high-reliability, high-capacity software systems, digital signal processing algorithms, and electronic hardware.
- Ensure the development of reliable software, firmware, and hardware deployment, testing, and data analysis in a continuous integration environment.
- Collaborate with other teams and stakeholders to ensure that software, firmware, and hardware systems meet organizational needs and align with the company's strategic goals.

- Extensive experience developing C++, C, and VHDL software for FPGA and Linux-based systems, including processors and microcontrollers (ARM, PowerPC, x86, etc.)
- Experience with digital and mixed-signal circuit schematic capture and board design.
Familiarity with high-speed digital circuits, standard interfaces such as Ethernet, CAN, I2C, SPI, PCIe, USB, etc., and electronic CAD tools.
- Knowledge of networking protocols (TCP, UDP, etc.), Linux kernel development, high-performance systems, and digital design principles.
- Experience with RF sensors or related systems, software-defined radios, and DSP implementation for embedded devices.
- Understanding of digital communication systems, including spread spectrum, forward error correction, and modulation types such as FSK, BPSK, QPSK, QAM, and PCM/FM.
- Proficiency in Python, MATLAB, and C/C++
- Familiarity with wireless communication standards, high-speed serial links such as GbE, PCI-E, and analysis related to RF sensing systems.
- Experience in an aerospace or similar high-tech industry is a plus.
