Job Description

You are:

A problem solver: You relish the opportunity to debug new or unfamiliar problems. You balance equal parts rigor and creativity. You know when to trust your intuition and when to start from first principles.
A quick learner: You look for opportunities to pick up new technical skills and soak them up like a sponge. You have knowledge gaps (we all do!), but you know when to rely on your peers, textbooks, or StackOverflow in order to fill them.
Self-driven: You set ambitious goals and meet them consistently. You deliver on your promises to others and yourself. You might have a corner of your garage full of completed personal projects.
Cross disciplinary: You have experience writing embedded software, bringing up microcontrollers, laying out PCBs, and interfacing with common sensors & actuators. You have the communication skills to collaborate effectively with mechanical, electrical, and software engineers.

You will:

Work across teams: Design and build electronics that validate new hardware with the electrical and embedded software teams. Work with mechanical engineers and fabricators to design and build robust mechanical test fixtures.
Take projects from start to finish: Prototype, design, and execute validation test plans for electronic and mechatronic hardware.
Design & build PCBs: Use industry standard EDA software to do schematic capture & PCB layout, from prototypes to final designs.
Write prototype software: Use and contribute to the software that helps us test and prototype faster. Write scripts and programs to automate the process of validating new electronics.
