Electrical Engineer-Consumer Product
At Demiurge, your role will be designing low-cost PCBs to implement neural network algorithms for autonomous vehicle prototype platforms.
- Iterate the design of low-cost consumer electronics capable of multi-sensor and multi-actuator real-time interactions, conforming to marketing, engineering, and regulatory requirements, with sensitivity to cost and quality tradeoffs at 1M+ volumes.
- Maintain schematics, BOM, and layout in Altium Designer.
- Discover and resolve complex electrical problems and manufacturing issues (quality, cost, and yield, etc.), from early design stages to mass production.
- Ph.D or Masters in electrical engineering, or a related field; or advanced degree and equivalent industry experience.
- Proven state-of-the-art research and product experience in designing analog and digital circuits and building validation and verification infrastructure solving a variety of real-world sensing and actuation problems.
- Five or more years of experience in designing electronics towards taking a high volume consumer design to market.
- Three or more years of experience in mixed analog and digital design and layout experiences.
- Skilled in programming with Linux, C/C++ and scripting languages, real-time constraints, hardware interfaces (e.g. Ethernet, UART, SPI, I2C.) and RTOS (real-time operating systems).
- Capable of working independently and overcoming challenges without supervision while being a team player.
Desired skills and experience
- Experience with Mentor DX designer schematic capture tool, Verilog, C/C++, MathLab/Simulink, System Verilog languages; Synopsis Synplify, Synopsis VCS, NCSim, ChipScope tool sets desired.
