Description and Requirements

Motorola Mobility, A Lenovo Company, is one of the world’s fastest growing smartphone providers, creating groundbreaking, affordable, high-quality products designed and built with the global customer in mind. We’re a US$60 billion revenue Fortune Global 500 company serving customers in 180 markets around the world. And it’s our people who make this all happen.  We are thinkers, risk-takers and problem solvers, working together to constantly challenge the status quo.  If you share our commitment to ingenuity, creativity and innovation we want you to help us define our world of tomorrow. Motorola is at the forefront of designing and developing products supporting 5G technology. Explore the opportunities and apply today.

Motorola 312 Labs, a newly chartered internal innovation group within the Motorola product organization, comprising global research, design and engineering experts focused on first-of-its-kind product development. This group will explore the unknown through research, ideation, concepting, and prototyping to usher in radically different mobile solutions and technologies in both the near and distant future. Motorola has brought innovation to market such as shatterproof screens, moto mods and the foldable Razr. Motorola 312 Labs will continue to accelerate new technologies to market and assist the wider Lenovo Group. Looking ahead, 312 Labs is focused on a few key research areas including the connected ecosystem of the future, metaverse evolution, exploring new and unique mobile form factors and wearables, advancing displays, and AR/VR technologies. Antenna architecture team is responsible for designing the antenna architecture of 312 Lab products.  We validate antenna design concepts through extensive simulation and prototyping to ensure optimal antenna performance.  Working across global product design disciplines, from RF and Mechanical Engineering to Industrial Design, we architect and design antennas that meet regulatory and certification requirements for our 5G devices.
