GIRD Systems, Inc., specializes in advanced signal processing and communications architectures for military and commercial customers. GIRD does more than just design, build and deploy radios for our customers. We design the entire communication system, starting with the creation of a spectrum-efficient waveform, and then progressing through the software or firmware implementation of the communication system in a compact form factor, and finally supporting the integration of that system into a customer platform.

GIRD Systems prides itself on being technically innovative and on giving our employees a unique employment experience. We're not your typical military contractor! Our employee-centric, small business enables us to provide a challenging, yet comfortable work environment generally not available with larger organizations. We have company paid medical/dental/vision benefits, we have a very attractive 401(k) program, we have an optional 9/80 work schedule, and we encourage a casual work environment where we prioritize work-life balance. Because of the nature of the customers we serve, US citizenship is required. Want to try something refreshingly different? Apply today!

If you are a U.S. citizen interested in joining the team at GIRD Systems and qualified for one of the positions described below, please email our resume department using the link to the right.

GIRD Systems is looking for communication system development engineers. Our development engineers work alongside a team of waveform designers and software/VHDL engineers to target a radio hardware platform and transition a product from the design phase through to deployment. The role of the development engineer is to lead the integration of communication software/firmware into the radio platform and to see the radio product through to production. The development engineer needs to be well versed in either VHDL or embedded software, preferably both, and must have strong lab skills.

Other relevant skills of interest to us:

•    C and C++programming skills
•    VHDL/Verilog
•    Linux/embedded Linux
•    ARM and x86 hardware
•    Requirements verification
•    Multi-threading/Multi-cores
•    Subversion and Git

GIRD Systems is looking for an embedded software engineer with experience designing, implementing, and testing communication systems. The successful applicant will work closely with a waveform design engineer to develop software implementations of complex signal processing algorithms which will be tested on software defined radio hardware platforms. The embedded software engineer needs to be proficient and both writing code as well as validation of the design in field tests. The candidate will have proficiency with ARM processors and a working knowledge or real time operating systems (RTOS). Knowledge of LTE/5G system architectures is a plus. 

Other relevant skills of interest to us:

•    C and C++programming skills
•    Strong Linux/embedded Linux
•    ARM and x86 hardware
•    Multi-threading/Multi-cores
•    Subversion and Git

GIRD is looking for an electronics engineering technician. This individual will be responsible for the build and test of electronic assemblies that will be used for airborne and ground-based radios. This position requires knowledge of both manual and automated test equipment (oscilloscopes, spectrum analyzers, network analyzers, power supplies). The engineering technician will work closely with design engineers and must have the ability to read and understand electrical schematics and other engineering drawings.     This individual will need to have strong component-level troubleshooting skills and must also have basic assembly skills.  Additional desirable skills include the ability to write test plans and test procedures at both the subassembly and assembly level, as well as to perform the data collection for ATP. Candidates with RF backgrounds, including knowledge of signal modulation, error vector magnitude, and bit error rate measurements, are encouraged to apply.


•    Associates Degree from an accredited two-year technical school or Military School equivalent.
•    2 years of experience directly related in electronics assembly, test, and repair.
•    Prior experience in engineering and manufacturing environment.
•    Experience in the aerospace industry is highly encouraged, but not required.
•    Experience with fabrication of electronics.
•    Experience with test plans and test procedures.
•    Working knowledge of schematics and engineering drawings.
•    Understanding of basic circuit behavior.
•    Experience with soldering and soldering standards.

The team at GIRD Systems, Inc. is growing and we are looking to add RF Machine Learning Design Engineers. GIRD is looking for engineers who have an understanding of machine learning fundamentals and can apply it in new and creative ways to new problems involving cognitive radio development. In particular, our customers are seeking new ways of using ML to identify signal sources in the RF spectrum to enable cognitive radios to intelligently adapt their use of the spectrum real-time for interference avoidance. The successful candidate will apply ML techniques to many problems, including selection of optimal interference mitigation strategies from among a group of candidate solutions, as well as utilization of techniques such as GAN to refine the behavior of the designed system. 

Because of the nature of the customers we serve, US citizenship is required. Relevant skills of interest to us:
•    Understanding of AI/ML techniques and a fundamental understanding of how RF systems work (basics of spectrum management)
•    Knowledge of MATLAB/TensorFlow
