About Framework
At Framework, we believe the time has come for products that are designed to last. Founded in San Francisco in 2019, our mission is to remake Consumer Electronics to respect people and the planet.

Our first product is the Framework Laptop, a thin, light, high-performance notebook that can be upgraded, customized, and repaired in ways that no other notebook can. Alongside this, we've launched the Framework Marketplace to enable an ecosystem of parts and modules. We've seen a fantastic reception to our first product from customers and reviewers from outlets like Linus Tech Tips, Ars Technica, and Wirecutter, along with landing on the cover of TIME's Best Inventions of 2021. As a company, we made #35 on Fast Company's Most Innovative Companies of 2022.

We come from successful consumer electronics startups including the founding team of Oculus, and we recently closed an $18M Series A fundraising round to fuel our roadmap. Even better (and maybe unusually for an early stage startup), we're in a financially healthy position going forward off of our product revenue. We care deeply about building a diverse and inclusive team, and we hope you do too!

The Position
We are looking for an Electrical Engineering Manager based in Taiwan to drive key Framework products and lead a small but dynamic team of EEs. Our philosophy in Framework is that every manager is both a mentor for the team they support and an individual contributor taking ownership of significant development work on a product.  Because of the modularity of our products, the electrical design work required is a unique challenge that is extremely important for fulfilling the company mission.  You’ll need to guide the team through solutions for delivering upgradeability, repairability, compatibility, and great product performance simultaneously.  As one of the early engineering managers in Framework, you'll also have a high level of influence on our product roadmaps and architectural philosophy going forward.

This is a full time position working remotely in Taiwan, and we also have an office in XinYi Dist that you can work from if you prefer. #LI-Remote
