Job Description

Job description:

Staff level Electronic Design Engineer position to create designs for Advanced EV charging systems. You will have an enormous opportunity to make a large impact on the design, architecture, and implementation of cutting-edge robotic products. This is an early stage startup with a fast-paced, highly collaborative environment. To be successful you need to be able to own the problem at hand and be comfortable with a degree of ambiguity.


• Lead the electrical engineering efforts for implementing a multi-processor embedded platform for integrated control of charging robots and digital control of dc-dc converters. Work with consultants and other teams on power device selection, mechanical and thermal packaging. Lead the engineering efforts from concept to production, including design, prototyping, and manufacturing,

• Design coils and antenna to create and detect low frequency (LF) near-field EM patterns for 3D sensing,

• Design, analyze and bring circuit designs to the maturity. Create detailed schematics to hand off to PCB layout, manufacture and assembly house.

Required Skills:

• Expert in sensor-rich microprocessor designs that include ADCs, DACs, control interfaces to servo motors or optic, magnetic and temperature sensors, op-amp design,

• Able to design dc-dc and ac-dc converters with and without isolation,

• Basics of antenna design and near-field EM patterns and what affects them,

• Able to create SPICE simulations and analyze design,

• Knowledge of best practices for PCB layouts, especially with respect to EMI, ESD and signal integrity,

• Basic firmware experience – able to get a PCB design working reliably from the ground up using common electrical, software or microprocessor debug tools,

• Knowledge of communication protocols like I2C, SPI, and MIPI,

• Excellent written and oral communications skills.

Highly desired:

• Experience with high-speed designs and best practices,

• Fundamentals of programming (C/C++), Matlab, OrCAD schematic capture.


• BS-EE or MS-EE with 5+ years of relevant experience in digital and analog electronics design.
