Electrical Engineer, Implant Systems

Fremont /
Engineering /
Full-time
Neuralink is developing ultra-high bandwidth brain-machine interfaces to connect humans and computers. We are building a team of multidisciplinary experts passionate about making a world-changing impact.

About the role:

Join the implant systems team and be part of an elite team of engineers working on high-performance, safety-critical embedded systems for the next-generation brain-machine interfaces. We are looking for an experienced, hands-on electrical engineer for implant electronics board design, integration with our custom chips, testing, and quality control. You will own advanced projects, not only working on incremental changes, and be an integral member of a small, fast-moving team. You will be working on all phases of board design (part selection, schematic design, layout, and bring-up) as well as work closely with chip designers, robotics, mechanical engineers, and microfabrication experts for system integration.

About you:

    • You find large challenges exciting and enjoy discovering and defining problems as much as solving them.
    • You deliver. You may enjoy thoughtful conversations about problems and perfecting designs, but in the end, you know that what matters is delivering a manufacturable solution that works every time.
    • 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:

    • 5+ years of experience designing PCBs for highly power and size constrained applications.
    • Extensive experience with all phases of PCB design (part selection, schematic, constraints, library management, board layout)
    • Fluency with PCB CAD tools (Altium, Eagle, KiCad, Allegro).
    • Experience with sensors, power management, and signal/power integrity.
    • Experience with wireless systems (BLE, WIFI, Zigbee).
    • Experience building and bringing-up hardware with MCU or FPGA.
    • Comfortable with common communication protocols (SPI, UART, I2C, etc.).
    • Strong EE fundamentals and HW/SW debugging skills with lab equipment.

Preferred qualifications:

    • Experience with firmware development for embedded systems (C/C++).
    • Proficiency with ME CAD tools (Solidworks, AutoCAD)
    • Experience with FEM/FDTD simulation tools and antenna designs/testing.
    • Prior work or experience pushing hardware systems through FCC/FDA approval process.

What we offer:

    • An opportunity to change the world and work with some of the smartest and the most talented experts from different fields.
    • Growth potential. We rapidly advance team members who have an outsized impact.
    • Flexible vacation policy.
    • Excellent medical, dental and vision insurance through a PPO plan.
    • Meals provided.
    • Stock options.
