Telecom Systems Architect

With our groundbreaking satellite 5G constellation, OQ Technology is a global leader in the domain of IoT communication connectivity and associated services. We are a venture capital-backed company with a successful track record of satellite launches and the first company in the world to disrupt the telecommunication industry by merging cellular 5G with satellites.

Our technology will have massive implications for the Oil & Gas, Maritime, Industry 4.0, and Transport segments, particularly for the management and tracking of assets in remote and rural areas and for extending 5G coverage through non-terrestrial networks.

As our wireless technologies are constantly evolving and winning multiple awards, with funding for next phase secured, and commercial traction demonstrated, we are now looking to onboard a talented Telecom Systems Architect.

You will be the Principal System Architect for the wireless telecommunication modem working on system architecture aspects of the Physical layer and MAC layer and will be responsible for all the technical development activities of OQ Technology’s payload and user terminals. You will also work closely with external partners. We are working on building cutting-edge end-to-end prototype & trial systems for satellite and ground networks. These will be used not only to prove new technology ideas and features but also to provide a platform for early demonstrations with top-tier infrastructure vendors and operators around the world. We are looking for a self-starter and motivated individual who wants to take his/her technical experience to the next level. Someone who likes to combine practical hands-on work with new algorithmic approaches and fast development. You will be contributing to the latest ideas and developments in wireless technology and working with world-leading experts to shape the future of wireless communication.
