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.

    • Background in aerospace engineering, robotics, lidar perception, radar signal processing, machine vision, and/or audio processing
    • One or more years of experiences with deep reinforcement learning. 
    • Comfortable with both a logic analyzer and a wrench.
    • Exceptional ability and track record of developing original and unconventional ideas/theories/models/inventions based on rethinking/reinventing the first principles of single or multiple fields.
    • Experience in a regulated, safety critical, or quality managed environment.
    • Extensive experience as a contributor to large open-source frameworks.

Desired personal qualities

    • First-principles-based thinking
    • Extraordinary composure and integrity in face of dire condition
    • Ruthless rationality and candor in the pursuit of knowledge
    • Profound empathy and charitableness in the matter of people
    • Resilience and fearlessness working outside your comfort zone
