Job Description

The candidate must have a proven track record of designing, simulating, and laying out complex analog and digital circuits, preferably for sensor signal conditioning applications, in a fast-paced environment. A solid understanding of basic sensor principles is imperative to development of the interfacing electronic hardware. The candidate must be well-versed in other aspects of engineering disciplines to facilitate the electronic packaging, integration, and testing necessary to complete the product development in a timely manner paying close attention to cost, quality and performance.

  • Handle all aspects of new and sustaining electrical design work, including concept circuit design, schematic capture, simulation, and PCB layout of integrated electronics within aerospace sensor transducers.
  • Lead and manage project(s) for development and delivery of high-performance sensors through phase gated review process with support from cross-functional team.
  • Develop analytical models of sensor systems during the concept and early development phase to validate initial design methodology. Design electronic hardware to match analytical performance.
  • Incorporate commercially available integrated circuits, OpAmps, ASICs, and other passive and active components together to meet system accuracy, temperature compensation, power input and EMI protection requirements, supported by strong analog and digital simulation activities.
  • Layout of all printed circuit boards for engineering test and production using OrCAD design tools.
  • Develop front end electronics to meet rigorous aerospace EMI standards (DO-160, MIL-STD-810).
  • Develop and own the electrical system bill of materials with a focus on cost and obsolescence management.
  • Hands-on testing and debugging of fabricated circuitry required with minimal supervision.
  • Support the delivery of high-quality product to the production team via the Production Readiness process with a cross-functional, collaborative mindset.
  • Collaborate with the supply chain team to ensure the timely procurement of materials and properly timed execution of work orders to maintain on-time-delivery of products throughout the NPD phase.
  • Contributes to the expansion of Intellectual Property portfolio by providing innovative solutions to technical challenges within the aerospace industry.
  • Able to travel domestic and international up to 15%.
  • To conform with US export regulations and ITAR 120.15 and EAR Part 772, incumbents for this role must be eligible for any required authorizations from the US government.
