They have 225 scientists, engineers and analysts on staff, 260+ issued, licensed and pending patents. They have more than 125 PhD’s on staff, 40+ collaborations with universities, research organizations and vendors. Additionally they have 100+ on-going customer-funded research and technology programs.
This is great opportunity for a hands-on Electrical Engineer to use their knowledge and skills to support the development of a complex Hardware-in-the-Loop (HITL) test bed. This is a very flexible position where you will have a great opportunity to broaden your skill set, while tackling very unique and challenging engineering problems. Very rarely will you have two months, or even weeks, in a row that are the same.
In this position, you will design, build and test prototype electrical interfaces (e.g. data acquisition, power distribution, electronic filters, control boxes, etc.) to integrate hardware into the laboratory test bed. You will read through electrical schematics, interface control documents, product manuals, etc. in order to understand system operation and to perform hardware integration tasks.
You will participate in test planning, system integration, and test activities as well as troubleshoot and debug the test bed hardware and software.
Ideal Candidate Skillset
The most important qualities for a candidate are an ability to quickly and eagerly learn new subjects, a willingness to work as part of a small team, and the discipline to complete work with minimal supervision. Some ability for self-direction of work is expected. The ideal candidate will also satisfy as many as possible of the following desires:
” Profiency with Xilinx FPGAs, and Vivado
” Profiecincy writing VHDL or Verilog code
” Experience with embedded system development
