Summer Internship

Software EngineeringSan Francisco

Description

  • Internships at Astranis typically last for twelve weeks, and are hourly roles designed for students who are currently enrolled at a four-year university. 
  • As an Intern, you will have an amazing opportunity to work on hard problems — we pride ourselves on giving everyone at Astranis a chance to do meaningful work on challenging projects, no matter their seniority. Many past interns have designed and tested hardware/software that is heading to space on our first satellite, and many of them are now full-time employees at Astranis. 
  • If you have already graduated from a four-year university, please apply to be an Associate Engineer.

Requirements

  • A passion for working in a fast-paced environment and constantly learning
  • Strong fundamentals in "signals and systems" (basic transforms, filters, aliasing, analysis in both continuous and discrete domains, interpolation, decimation, etc)
  • Strong fundamentals in digital communications (modulation, coding, synchronization, fading, doppler, multiple access, channel capacity, etc)
  • Familiar with software development (some experience writing software for DSP, MCU, and/or FPGA, experience in one or more scripting languages)
  • Familiar with analog concepts (amplifiers, analog filters, gain and delay variation, reflections, compression, etc)
  • Experience working with signal generator, signal analyzer, network analyzer, oscilloscope, etc
  • US Citizenship or Green Card
  • 40 hours per week minimum
  • Must be onsite in San Francisco 3 days a week minimum
  • Don't meet them all? Not a problem. Please apply even if you do not meet all these criteria.
  • Bonus:
  • Experience with software defined radios
  • Experience with Python
  • Experience with GNU Radio
  • Experience with FPGA development (and/or embedded C)

Area of Responsibilities

Software Engineering

Responsibilities

  • Design signal processing for custom software defined radio hardware (ex. channelization, equalization, PA linearization, gain control, carrier synchronization, symbol mapping, framing, channel coding/FEC, etc)
  • Work closely with FPGA developers to implement and test the signal processing on radio hardware
  • Model the end-to-end radio system from earth to space, and back.
  • Drive radio architecture trade studies, run link budgets, optimize the radio system for maximum performance for dozens of markets and use cases around the world
