  • Bring up, debug, and rework prototypes
  • Develop test plans and fixtures
  • Travel to Asia to oversee builds and solve technical problems (20%)

What you’ll need:

  • Minimum 5 years of industry experience designing circuit boards
  • High proficiency in schematic design and board layout (Altium/Protel preferred)
  • Deep understanding of mixed-signal, low-power, and battery-powered designs; MCUs; audio; and signal integrity. 
  • BS or MS in Electrical Engineering or Computer Engineering (or related).

Our ideal candidate also has familiarity with:

  • Consumer electronics design
  • Antenna design
  • Audio circuits, both analog and DSP
  • Flexible circuit design
  • HDL (Verilog/VHDL)
