We are seeking candidates for a newly-created Wireless Systems Engineering role. Based in Antrim, the successful candidate will be involved in research and design of new applications which are enabled by wireless technology. This role is required to support Sensata’s new opportunities in wireless-related system developments across multiple end markets.

In this role, you will:

  • Interact with customers on a technical level to elicit their requirements and demonstrate our capabilities
  • Specify all aspects of the wireless systems, including architecture, protocols etc.
