Job Responsibilities

With more than 45 years of antenna system expertise, Viasat in Atlanta specializes in antenna and ground station design, fabrication, test, installation, and maintenance. From our past work, we’ve developed a set of antenna system building blocks in reflectors, feeds, mounts, servo controls, converters, modems, monitor and control (M&C) software that enables us to quickly put together systems for any application.

Are you a Engineer who believes your role for the company is to accomplish activities involved in the creation and operation of the technical and economic processes that convert purchased components into end products? If so, then ViaSat has a role within our Antenna Systems division for you to sink your teeth into! Your expertise will serve you well in participating as an integral part of our team to assist with make/buy analysis, facilities planning, new product introductions, and project planning. You will interface with design engineering, quality, purchasing, planning, logistics, service, and production in coordinating the release of new products, sustaining existing product, and failure analysis of returned products.
