    • You are a cross-disciplinary team member. You are excited to work with and learn from software, mechanical, electrical, materials, biological engineers, and neuroscientists. You are comfortable communicating across teams.
    • Resourceful, flexible and adaptable; no task is too big or too small.

Key qualifications:

    • 3+ years of experience (personal, school, or professional) designing and building electronics.
    • Mastery of at least 1 schematic capture and layout tool (Cadence, Allegro, Altium, Eagle, KiCad, etc.)
