CAREER OPPORTUNITIES

We’re looking for people who want to revolutionize RF monitoring and intelligence.
We’re an ambitious, diverse, closely knit team of RF experts who are driven to redefine how 5G wireless spectrum is monitored and managed. If you’re team focused, willing to work hard to change the game, and are compelled to innovate, we’ll put you in a position to make a difference.
We’re a Wesley Clover International Affiliate, a global investment management firm and holding company of the serial technology entrepreneur Sir Terry Matthews.

Benefits and Our Culture

We’re not fans of mediocrity. We ask a lot of our team members, and in return we provide excellent benefits and a healthy work environment.
OUR CALL TO ACTION

More and more, wireless spectrum is fundamental to our society. How do we best ensure this critical resource is always available and properly managed? The current approaches are cumbersome, expensive, and ineffective. We see the world differently. We are developing cutting edge solutions and deploying them with world class partners to deliver disruptive solutions that keep our world humming.  We aren’t interested in “more of the same”, we are all about better. We love challenges and delivering over and above what our customers expect.

Current Opportunities

thinkRF is an equal opportunity employer and we encourage applications from candidates of all backgrounds, origins, ages, orientations, genders, creeds and religions. thinkRF accommodates people with disabilities throughout the recruitment and selection process, and beyond.
