Colorado communication engineers polishing their resumes right now could have a hand in creating the next high speed mobile communications network.
“We are very involved in what’s called the 5G, next generation of cellular communication,” said Jay Moorman, president of Wireless Solutions LGS Innovations Group, based in Westminster.
The company is on hiring kick, looking to add 50 more engineers to work with the Westminster location, in the Westmoor Technology Center at 113th and Simms.
“We’ve hired 60 across the country, about half of them here,” Moorman said. “We’re a company of about 1,300 nationwide, and when you look at us adding 200 people in a year, that’s big thing for us.”
LGS Innovates is the successor to the old Bell Labs that was spun off in 1996 to become Lucent Technologies. Lucent combined with Alcatel in 2006, creating a LGS as contracting channel providing classified and unclassified projects for the federal government.
“That’s our legacy, applying it to some of the most difficult and challenging communication problems out there in the commercial and government space,” Moorman said.
That could mean everything from space based communication, signal processing and wireless and cellular data — like next generation mobile communications.
LGS operates out of three main campus, in New Jersey, Chicago and Westminster, and Moorman said the Westminster operation concentrates more on wireless.
“So we do mostly focused on communication products,” he said.”Based on our legacy, that means cellular communication capabilities. But because of the technical talent we have, we go all span the way from push-to-talk radio and high power cordless radios all the way up to milimeter wave, hundred-gigahertz plus communication systems.”
The company can create chips, write software and create protocols to take advantage of the the spectrum
“Our customers are coming back to us saying they want more,” Moorman said. “They say we give them something they can’t get in other companies. That’s why I say we need more people. We need technical superstars. That’s what I’m really looking for.”
Moorman said he wants a range of experience, from people fresh out of college to experienced engineers.
“We have a great range of diversity in that mix,” he said. “You get the young passion and eagerness mixed with a great sense of wisdom and knowledge and lessons learned.”
