assigned engineering activities required to determine customer needs and requirements
relative to products manufactured by the company with an emphasis on electronic
controls, embedded systems, and PCB design. Develop and train less senior
engineers by mentoring them and reviewing their tasks and projects.


  • Act as project manager for assigned projects.
  • Create designs of custom embedded
    systems including schematic capture and bill of material creation which will
    require the selection of appropriate electronic components
    (passive/active), integrated circuits, and microcontrollers.
  • Focus on new components, processes, and
    techniques to provide direction to the engineering team for future new
    product development.
  • Package designs into printed circuit
    board (PCB) layouts and off-the-shelf or custom enclosures that may be
    developed in coordination with mechanical engineering.
  • Plan, outline and write embedded
    microcontroller code, primarily in ANSI C, and PC code in Visual Studio
    and/or LabVIEW.
  • Create functional and design validation
    test plans and processes.
  • Assist and supervise internal and external
    test labs with all validation test requirements and use expertise to
    mitigate any impact of testing obstacles to overall design timeline for
    your projects and those of other engineers.
  • Conduct, develop, and participate in
    design planning and design review including DFMEAs for your projects and
    those of other engineers.
  • Assist manufacturing with creating or
    approving necessary documentation for a smooth production launch including
    process reviews, control plans, PFMEAs, test processes/procedure creation,
    and ERP database requirements such as production routing instructions and
    multilevel BOMs.
  • Support manufacturing and other
    engineers throughout product life cycle as required due to issues with
    part obsolescence/availability or fixture maintenance/calibration.
  • Assist customers with technical issues
    observed in the field or during integration of products.
  • Provide feedback and work to develop
    less senior engineer's skillset and abilities.
