Pozyx https://www.pozyx.io
BE 9000 Vrijdagmarkt 10 /201

Through our research, we try to keep on top of new innovations for use in our future products. As an R&D engineer at Pozyx, you will manage several research projects within the company. You will not only manage these projects but also work on them together with the rest of the engineering team. Your main goal will be to set up demonstrators or proof of concepts for novel hardware components, protocols or algorithms. Through a series of tests and measurements you will characterize the behavior and the performance of these innovations and provide this input to the product team when defining the next generation of products and features.


For this position, we are looking for a hands-on experienced engineer to define a wide variety of tests (both indoor and outdoor) of the Pozyx positioning system, or parts of that system. The various test setups will comprise several electronic measurement systems, actuators or robots which need to be automated to perform reliable, repeatable and efficient tests. Tests include measuring the positioning accuracy, radio range, antenna pattern, device power consumption, wireless signal packet loss and more. For this you will work in the different Pozyx test labs such as the anechoic chamber and use the prototype lab to 3D-print objects or build fixtures for your tests.
