Description

You will develop and maintain comprehensive, multi-functional sensor system models to inform decisions. You will work with your peers on system integration challenges such as sensor and module design as well as co-existence analysis and mitigations. You will work on a cross-disciplinary team for feature definition, block-level simulation, and spec authorship of sensor modules. You will propose and negotiate cross-functional requirements to guarantee module performance. Develop of detailed module architecture specifications based on first principles analysis and complex engineering trade-offs. Lead efforts for future sensor technologies. Analyze engineering and production datasets in order to reconcile system models with real-world measurements. Work with test teams to ensure sensors are tested and calibrated to specification. Collaborate with firmware and algorithm teams to develop advanced algorithms to ensure module performance meets user experience requirements. Work closely with the mechanical engineering team in optimizing material and mechanical design trade-offs. Help mentor and lead junior engineers as they grow into leaders of their own. Author regular technical communication for executive and cross-functional briefings. • Knowledge of electrical, thermal, and mechanical systems is preferred • Experience with high volume mass production is a plus up to 10% travel required (this % may vary by team)

Education & Experience

M.S. + 10 or PhD + 3 in Electrical Engineering, Physics or industry experience equivalent Analog circuit design experience required Experience with scripting languages (MATLAB, Python etc.) required
