We are looking for an Electrical Engineer with experience in analog circuits and power to join our Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) team in Menlo Park, CA. In this role, you would work closely with researchers as part of a multi-disciplinary engineering team (e.g. mechanical, electrical, optical, and software) to design, build, test, and maintain novel wearable neural interface technologies. Our research is focused on developing functional brain-computer interface (BCI) technologies for use in consumer electronic products. Our team collaborates extensively with small companies and academic institutions, and publishes in peer-reviewed journals.

Required Skills:

  1. Design and integrate electrical systems, including architecture, component selection, PCB schematic and layout, bring-up, characterization, and integration

  2. Integrate electronics with optical, mechanical, and software components, as part of a multi-disciplinary team

  3. Characterize, debug, and test systems using bench-top laboratory equipment and scripting

  4. Drive electrical engineering activities to completion, leveraging the internal team and external vendors

  5. Work closely with researchers to understand their goals and elicit electrical system requirements

  6. Take prototypes to increasing levels of fidelity, ranging from proof-of-concept demonstrations to integrated systems

Minimum Qualifications:

  1. Bachelors in Electrical or Computer Engineering or equivalent experience

  2. 3+ years of industry experience in consumer product system design

  3. Schematic and board layout experience using Altium, Cadence, or equivalent

  4. Lab and debugging experience for board and system bring-up and characterization using bench-top laboratory equipment

  5. Knowledge of PCB layout principles, including signal integrity, power layout, desense, DFM, etc.

  6. Experience integrating electrical systems that include components such as communication interfaces (e.g., MIPI, USB, I2C, SPI, PCIe, etc.), optoelectronics, cameras, sensors, FPGAs, microcontrollers, microprocessors, amplifiers, wireless, ADCs, DACs, DC-DC converters, and power sequencing

Preferred Qualifications:

  1. Exposure to a start-up environment or a research environment

  2. RTL coding skills using Verilog or VHDL

  3. Programming skills (e.g., scripting, low-level software, DSP programming)

  4. Exposure to medical imaging or scientific instrumentation system development

  5. Experience collaborating with JDM/CM/ODM
