Embedded Systems Engineer

Primary Responsibilities:

As a member of our engineering team, the Embedded Systems Engineer will design, prototype, and construct small volume production runs of electronic systems for the next generation of tensegrity robots. 

You will take charge of the HW / FW Stack for electronic hardware that operates in harsh, austere environments (e.g., disaster sites, chemical leaks, forest fires, etc.).  Specific systems to be designed involve actuators, gas sensors, wireless transmission, engineering sensors, battery management systems, etc.  You will be working in collaboration with our engineering team – including mechanical, controls, and full stack software engineers to deliver a full product.

The goal is to make rapid iterative progress on the designs, and fabricate small (< 10) production runs of key PCB assemblies for customers.

Education/Experience:

  • Master’s or Bachelor’s degree in Electrical or Mechatronic Engineering with 3+ years of relevant experience.
  • Realtime firmware development in C/C++ on microcontrollers.
  • Prior experience with Single Board Computers.
  • Some electrical prototyping experience.
  • Experience with controlling peripheral devices such as: encoders, electric actuators, motors (BDC, BLDC, stepper), sensors (capacitive, IR, etc.).
  • Some electrical prototyping experience.
  • Experience with controlling peripheral devices such as: encoders, electric actuators, motors (BDC, BLDC, stepper), sensors (capacitive, IR, etc.).

Preferred Experience:

  • Experience in printed circuit board PCB) design and manufacturing (Eagle, Altium, or similar software), preferably including use of Surface Mount Devices (SMD ) components.
  • New board bring-up.
  • Wireless communications (Bluetooth LE, 3G/4G LTE, WiFi, LoRa, etc.)
  • Prior use of hardware cameras (NTSC/PAL, MIPI / SCI).
  • Low-power circuit design.
  • Have experience implementing Agile software development and testing to promote release management.
