What you will be a part of

Saab’s strategy for growth includes building local business in selected markets, with focus on key customer countries. The United Arab Emirates (UAE) is one of these key customer countries where Saab now increases its presence by starting development and production with an initial focus on an AESA based radar system. You will become part of the engineering and project management department for this brand new Saab company, which will operate in Tawazun Industrial Park, northeast of the Abu Dhabi city center.

Your role

We are now increasing the team and are looking for several radar-engineering capabilities. Depending on the level of experience and expertise, approximately 10-15 engineers will be hired. Below listed positions/areas are to be filled.

  • System engineering
  • Integration & verification
  • Microwave and antenna
  • Mechanical design
  • Digital design
  • Analogue design
  • Sensor design
  • Signal processing
  • ILS
  • SW architect
  • Firmware developer
  • Data processing

Each contract is either a time-limited assignment expected to last 24-36 months or setup as a local contract, depending on position and preferences. You will be living in Abu Dhabi.

Your skills and experience

It is advantageous if you have radar experience but it is equally important that you have a desire to be a part of building up a brand new entity and operation in the UAE. This is a unique and exciting opportunity!

As a person, you are outgoing and inspired by new challenges. A well-developed understanding and willingness to learn about different cultures is crucial in this multi-cultural environment. It will require a lot of teamwork and a broad approach from the complete team to be successful.
