The ideal candidate will be a team player with strong analytical skills as well as the ability to effectively communicate with colleagues and external vendors.


  • Setup, troubleshoot, and optimize long-range wireless networks at industrial facilities and construction sites: 900MHz mesh network, similar to long-range WiFi
  • Engage in systems analysis, engineering, and improvement of existing network technology
  • Conduct wireless site surveys, and provide guidance for deployment engineers and technicians
  • Resolve issues and minimize the impact for customers
  • Document network development and testing
  • Research and improve network monitoring and remote administration technology, network routing technology
  • Research and improve network security


  • Bachelor’s +3 years industry experience, or Master’s degree +1 year experience in a related field
  • Strong understanding of RF and wireless communication technologies, WAN, LAN
  • Hands-on experience in wireless network installation, configuration, and maintenance
  • Ability to troubleshoot and resolve network issues using diagnostic tools
  • Experience in conducting wireless site surveys
  • Excellent problem-solving and analytical skills
  • Ability to work independently and as part of a team
  • Willingness to travel occasionally for site surveys, deployment, and troubleshooting

Preferred but not required:

  • Any knowledge of network security monitoring is an advantage
  • Familiarity with relevant tools - Ekahau, Wireshark, SolarWinds, Splunk etc.
  • Familiarity with DevOps principles and practices for efficient network management
  • Proficiency in Linux-based operating systems
  • Experience with C++ or script languages
  • Wireless networking certification (CWNA, CWDP, etc)

We are a fast-paced, highly technical organization. Our teams are kept small and agile to limit layers of unnecessary processes. Autonomy is expected. Every engineer gets to see their work transition from ideas to high-value products. The work is challenging but highly rewarding.

We'll be very excited to learn more about you and welcome you to the Nextera Robotics team!
