Principal Radar Systems Engineer


About Metawave:


Metawave is solving today’s real-world problems  in highly automated driving and in high-speed wireless communications by using advanced beam focusing and steering technologies. Our mission is to make driving safer and communications faster and more reliable. We develop our technology from ground up to highly scalable and modular platforms that cater to various radar sensing applications.  Leveraging artificial intelligence and highly integrated analog front-end modules, Metawave is advancing automotive radar to the next-level to meet customers’  metrics and enabling mobile carriers to rollout high-capacity networks  seamlessly , economically and more efficiently.

Metawave demonstrated the first beamsteering radar system capable of distinguishing objects in all-weather and difficult driving conditions, SPEKTRATM radar platform, making travel safer and smarter. Metawave technology will bring high-speed connectivity to billions of users though our high-speed state-of-the-art 5G platforms, TURBOTM active repeaters and KLONETM passive relays, enabling connection in bustling cities, busy office buildings, crowded concerts and sporting events, and under-serviced pockets all around the world.  

Metawave is conquering the millimeter wave world of sensing and communication .
