At WHOOP, we're on a mission to unlock human performance. WHOOP empowers members to perform at a higher level through a deeper understanding of their bodies and daily lives.

As an Electrical Engineer at WHOOP, you will work with the Electrical, Mechanical, Firmware, Manufacturing, and Supply Chain teams on developing and supporting cutting edge wearable technologies. You will support the design, mass production, and continuous improvement of cutting edge wearables, perform technical root cause analysis of field returns, identify corrective actions and design changes, and support ATE (automated test equipment) development. You will interface directly with suppliers and contract manufacturers (CMs) to identify and execute on opportunities to improve yield, decrease field returns, and reduce cost. You are deeply familiar with electrical concepts and best practices and have the vocabulary to work with mechanical engineers, firmware engineers, and technicians.
