What we are looking for

A senior member of our electrical team, that will work in multi-disciplinary project teams to architect and develop systems for a wide variety of markets including consumer products, medical devices, space systems, unmanned aerial vehicles, and industrial controls. You will support the sales team as we bid and quote on incoming work and leverage. You’ll have the opportunity to showcase the many hats that you can wear as you integrate yourself into our project teams, working closely with the systems engineering and project management functions. On these teams you may be responsible for the outcomes of the electrical and electronics function, sometimes including firmware. You may influence our design guidelines as we consistently strive to be better. You may mentor less experienced engineers and work with others to assist them in taking on more responsibility.

 

Ideally, you’re an individual who has the experience that comes from successfully delivering multiple projects and can speak to the lessons you learned from your failures along the way. You’re comfortable being the point person responsible for getting the job done. You’ve been part of these projects from their inception to their delivery, so you’re keenly aware of the different hurdles at each stage of the process. You’ve worked with a variety of technologies so you can bring your breadth of experience to bear and tailor a right-sized solution to individual project needs. You have outstanding attention to detail, which makes you invaluable when reviewing the work of others. You don’t believe in a one-size fits all approach and you are skilled at adapting to changing circumstances.

 

Above all, people refer to you as an outstanding team member that they enjoy working with.

Because of the variable nature of our work, this is only an aspirational guide to how you will spend your time and is subject to change depending upon the ongoing status of our business.

 

  • Design Work:

You’ll design hardware architectures, power budgets, electrical block diagrams, schematics, and PCBs. You’ll get your hands dirty and own your designs from start to finish, involving other team members as appropriate to ensure that our designs are successful. You’ll review the work of other engineers on a regular basis.

 

  • Mentoring:

Occasionally, you’ll work with the more junior staff members, developing their technical skills and helping them advance in their careers. This requires effective delegation, where you allow them to own their work but you stay closely involved to ensure that they are successful.

 

  • Sales Support:

Occasionally, you’ll work with the director, our account managers, and project managers to bid and scope projects with our customers, and may visit customer sites to discuss our capabilities.

 

  • Overhead:

Whether it’s training, developing and refining our processes, managing portions of our Quality Management System, or tracking your time, you’ll also have to deal with a lot of the extraneous responsibilities of a staff member.
