Sr. Electrical Engineer/Research Engineer - Torrance, CA

Seeking a Sr. Electrical Engineer with significant expertise in electronics engineering design and development, Mixed Signal Analog and Digital Electronic Design, Firmware development in C /C++, Assembly, and Machine Language for our Automation, Robotics, and Sensor Systems Department.  U.S. citizenship is required to obtain security clearance.

Responsibilities:

The Sr. EE will develop embedded electronics hardware for military wearable electronics and sensor systems.  We are looking for an energetic and motivated candidate with the ability to address multiple projects and requirements in our rapidly growing business. The candidate will have a proven track-record of decomposing a complex overall effort into easily manageable subroutines / sections. They will work with the team to create and implement designs from concept to prototype to qualified product. This is a hands-on technical position for someone looking for a key contributor on a growing team. 

  • Design and develop electronic systems from requirements definition, through schematic capture, board layout, prototyping, troubleshooting, design optimization and design for manufacture.

  • Design and develop embedded firmware including top level executive, real time scheduler, hardware specific subroutines, interrupt service routines, device drivers, power management modules and communications functions.

  • Perform design validation and verification testing of embedded hardware and firmware systems, identifying and correcting problem areas and design deficiencies while maintaining engineering documentation of the development and optimization process.

  • Develop and review technical data package documentation.

  • Interface with internal multidisciplinary engineering team and management as well as external stakeholders including customers, design engineering representatives, and contractors to ensure hardware design quality and customer satisfaction

Requirements:

  • B.S. Degree in Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering and 6+ years of experience in embedded systems hardware & firmware development. (Masters with 4+ years of experience)

  • 5+ years of experience in the design of electronics and firmware for high reliability or mission critical systems.

  • Hands on experience designing and troubleshooting complex microcontroller based systems – hardware and firmware – to the component level.

  • History of developing hard real time, deterministic firmware to control, monitor, and supervise embedded electronics hardware in mission critical military and industrial systems.

  • Extensive experience with CAD/CAE systems including Schematic Capture, PCB Layout (Altium Designer preferred), Logic Simulators, Digital Logic, Communications, Avionics, and Data Conversion.

  • Experience with standard communication interfaces: I2C, SPI, RS-232, RS-422, RS-485, USB 2.0 / 3.0, Ethernet, Gigabit-Ethernet. CAN BUS, MIL-STD-1553, ARINC-429, and ARINC-708, a plus

  • Familiarity with systems engineering practice in allocating and developing board level requirements to ensure the overall objectives are addressed.

  • Effective communication skills (oral and written) including generating engineering documents such as ICD, ATP, QTP, ESS and presenting design progress at major project milestones (e.g., SRR, PDR, CDR) is a plus.

  • Participate in internal hardware design reviews and perform code reviews for firmware.

  • Experienced in developing interface control documents and board level test procedures a plus.

  • Perform hands-on requirements verification testing in the lab to produce and finalize documentation.

  • A proven track record as a contributor in a team environment is essential.

  • U.S. citizenship required to obtain security clearance.
