Job Summary

3D Systems, a leading global provider of 3D printing solutions is currently accepting candidates for an Electrical Design Engineer. This position will participate in multi-discipline teams supporting 3D printing development programs through the application of electrical engineering tools in the design, development, and production phases working on problems of moderate complexity.

Primary Job Functions

  • Participates as a team member with other Electrical Engineers and works with both internal and external resources to develop robust and reliable electronics of moderate complexity
  • Develops electronic designs utilizing established engineering principles which may include microprocessor hardware and or high speed memory systems
  • Involvement in circuit board development from concept requirements to manufacturing release which includes validation, test development, and subsystem qualification
  • Development would involve component level selection of parts, circuit design including timing analysis, loading, interface, power, thermal and EMC considerations
  • Work effectively with partners in Procurement, Manufacturing and Field Service to ensure design meets all NPI requirements
  • Collaborate with third party vendors and contract manufacturers in supply chain and NPI development
  • Develop electronic designs that interface to electro-mechanical systems, including motion control, thermal control, standard IO, analog and digital interfaces
  • Work with other electrical, software, process, and mechanical teams to develop hardware and firmware solutions to integrate into systems
  • Assist in the development of architecture, implementation strategies, algorithms and perform hardware interface level programming
  • Assist in the development of design specifications and firmware architecture documents pertaining to area of responsibility
  • Work with software engineers to ensure efficient interface between the software and hardware
  • Support testing and sustained maintenance of the current and new electrical and firmware systems based on the feedback from field and manufacturing

Education and Training
BS or MS in Electrical Engineering


  • 2-4 years' experience developing PCB circuit board assemblies (preferably microprocessor based) including: Block diagrams, circuit design, schematic entry, test planning, component placement and layout considerations

  • Experience in hardware design validation through empirical analysis, modeling or experimental test methods

  • ARM SOC, and or other multi-core processor based design or high speed memory design experience a plus

  • Experience developing FPGA designs an added plus

Knowledge, Skills & Abilities

  • Use of commercial electrical design tools (schematic, circuit development, etc) and application packages
  • Applied design work in the full development lifecycle, including requirements, scheduling, hardware design, test, verification and documentation to support a manufacturing ready design

  • Involvement in circuit board qualification: test development, signal integrity, thermal, power, stress and regulatory compliance testing
  • Design and development of at least one moderately complex circuit board that has been successfully released into production
  • Knowledge of microprocessor architecture, digital design, memory systems and basic analog design
  • Hands on use of electronic diagnostic tools i.e. oscilloscopes, DVM, and data acquisition to troubleshoot hardware and software as well as and develop bench or verification plans
  • Solid knowledge of electronic engineering, principles of electronics testing, electronic measurement techniques and equipment, firmware programming, basic design for manufacturability, testability, and cost
  • Must be a strong self-starter, have good communication, teamwork and organization skills, as well as the ability to work effectively with cross functional teams. Desire a creative and resourceful individual with strong attention to detail
