The Electrical Design Engineer in this position will be responsible for the design and development of electronics for Genie products. This highly visible role will involve close collaboration with the rest of the new product development team to produce new garage door operators and accessories. The candidate must be able to design and analyze control circuitry at the PCB level.
Role and Responsibilities
Component selection, circuit design at the PCB level, schematic capture, and analysis.
Guidance of PCB layout.
Hands-on bring-up, debugging, and functional verification of prototypes.
Development of verification plans and contribution to validation plans.
Collaboration with printed circuit board layout, firmware development, mechanical engineering, compliance engineering, validation testing, and manufacturing.
5+ year's experience in a product development environment designing commercial products for volume manufacture is required. Experience in high-volume electronic for consumer products is preferred.
Must have great electrical engineering and general engineering fundamentals as well as demonstrated problem solving ability.
Circuit design skills at the PCB assembly level are required.
Familiarity with PCB design, assembly and surface mount processes is required.
Strong understanding of electronic components is required.
Experience with microcontroller-based embedded design is required.
Experience with DC/DC power conversion on motor drives is desirable.
Familiarity with RF circuitry is a plus, but this is not an RF engineering position.
Must have hands-on background in prototype bring-up and functional verification.
Experience with design for compliance (UL or regulatory) is required; experience with safety-critical systems is preferred.
