Job Description

  • Provide technical leadership role within the Engineering department to lead engineering teams through all phases of the product life cycle from requirements, conceptual development and detail design, verification through qualification, manufacturing transition and production support.
  • Develop clearly written requirements and design specifications from a marketing or customer requirement document.
  • Perform original and innovative analog and digital hardware design and distill large scale designs into architectural elements. Generate design reports and present findings to the team - e.g., at design reviews. Facilitate the design of products by coordinating engineering teams of varied technical disciplines through clearly documented design documents. Co-ordinate technical meetings and reviews with other groups.
  • Develop creative approaches that favorably optimize complex design tradeoffs for various elements of a design such as product cost, performance, feature set, time to market, and technical risk.
  • Conceive methods for achieving product requirements and specifications using appropriate circuit design, process, manufacturing and mechanical techniques. Anticipate possible difficulties and develop alternate methods.
  • Perform thermal analysis, electrical stress analysis, worst case analysis, FMEA analysis, tolerance analysis, aging analysis, EMI analysis, simulations, and design verification to ensure that the designs meet the requirements of harsh environments for the applications.
  • Develop plans, budgets, schedules, and identify resources required to develop products from market requirement through product release. Identify risk areas and develop contingency plans to eliminate or mitigate risk that could result in schedule delays or failure to meet specification or design plan requirements.
  • Mentor, coach, and train engineers to facilitate their ability to progress to higher levels of technical and professional achievement.
  • Contribute technical input to proposals, as well as material and labor cost estimates in support of winning tactical business opportunities and proposals.
  • Provide support for new and legacy products by investigating and resolving issues using tools such as Oscilloscope, Analyzers, DMM, etc.
  • Work with other departments as appropriate to lead vendor or engineering outsource selection decisions based on uniform technical performance, risk and cost tradeoffs.
  • Take the initiative to research, develop, propose, evaluate and/or implement new methods, processes, techniques, tools, components, or technology that improve quality, timeliness and/or performance of products or the efficiency or cost effectiveness of engineering work.
  • Conduct in-depth technical interviews and make assessments and recommendations that support the hiring of capable and talented technical staff in Engineering
