Job Description: Sr. RF Engineer / Sr. Electrical Engineer

Location: Houston, Texas

Job Summary:

Quaise develops millimeter wave drilling systems for deep geothermal heat access. Our technology is the only approach in the world with the potential to build geothermal wells at unprecedented depths and temperatures. Quaise’s technology consists of a source of millimeter wave (MMW) such as a gyrotron operating in continuous wave mode and at high power, to vaporize subsurface rock.

Quaise Energy Gyrotron - RF Cafe

Our gyrotron-powered drilling platform vaporizes boreholes through rock and provides access to deep geothermal heat without complex downhole equipment. Based on breakthrough fusion research and well-established drilling practices, we are developing a radical new approach to ultra-deep drilling.

Quaise is seeking an accomplished electrical engineer or physicist with at least 5 years work experience. Specific discipline of study and/or work in radio frequency is required, preferably high power RF transmission over waveguide. Ideal candidate would have experience in both the RF and high voltage (20 kV+) field.

Duties and Responsibilities:

The primary responsibility of this role is to oversee development of waveguide, gyrotron, high voltage power supply and other MMW technologies for the Quaise MMW Drilling System.

Candidate would be at the forefront of technology development for geothermal application, which involves researching, collaborating, specifying, sourcing, integrating, implementing, performing DOE, analyzing results, and building on lessons learned. Ability to troubleshoot and recover is a must.

Qualifications and Experience Requirements:

Master’s degree in engineering (Electrical, Electronics, RF, power engineering) or Physics degree. Bachelor’s degree may be considered if coupled with several years’ experience in industry.

Minimum 5 years in industry, 10 years preferred. Experience gained in the specific fields listed below are a plus:

  • EM wave understanding (10-150 GHz), including basic principles, different mode, mode conversion, wave polarization, filtering.
  • Wave propagation and waveguide transmission line design. Understanding of propagation in rectangular and cylindrical waveguides.
  • Design and use of waveguide mirrors, miter bends, polarizer, tapers, bends, mode converters, and other transmission line architecture.
  • Wave attenuation, wave interaction with environment, noise, and other wave behaviors.
  • Handling reflected power, impedance matching, load and dummy load design. - Wave network analysis.
  • Vacuum tube, cavity resonators, and other high power EM wave generators such as a gyrotron.
  • Principles of electron beam tubes, particularly gyrotron.
  • Familiarity with electromagnetism, super conducting magnets, physics of magnetic fields.
  • Use of CAD or modelling software (HFSS, CST, MATLAB, COMSOL, etc.) used to simulate wave propagation and effects of environment on the wave.

Quaise Energy Millimeter Drilling - RF Cafe

Millimeter wave drilling will unlock the most abundant and powerful clean energy source on Earth by allowing us to drill down to 20 km and 500° C.

By 2024, Quaise Energy plans to have its first full-scale hybrid drilling rig combining conventional rotary drilling and millimeter wave drilling capabilities.

By 2026, Quaise Energy plans to have the first Super Hot Enhanced Geothermal System rated to 100 MW of thermal energy from a handful of wells.

By 2028, Quaise Energy plans to have its first fossil-fired power plant repowered with clean geothermal steam.


About Quaise Energy

Deep geothermal energy is at the core of an energy-independent world. Our mission is to bring this inexhaustible, renewable, clean energy source to future generations. This is the profound power of deep geothermal. We are unlocking energy for all.

About RF Cafe

    Kirt Blattenberger,


RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
