Electrical Engineer

Job description

Electrical Engineer 

 

SeaLandAire is a fast-paced research and development company with the objective of helping customers collect information from difficult environments, focusing on small unmanned vehicles and sensor systems. SeaLandAire is a “full-stack” hardware development company, with capabilities in high-level software development, mechanical CAD design/prototyping, PCB design, and embedded firmware development. We are looking for electrical engineers to join our team in Jackson, MI.

 

An electrical engineer at SeaLandAire performs a wide range of duties, taking concepts to hardware and firmware prototypes in a rapid development cycle. Each engineer is part of a project team through the entire development cycle, from conception to field testing of prototypes. The electrical engineer is a core part of the design feedback loop, taking lessons learned from prototyping, assembly, and field testing and applying them to the future design iterations.

 

Electrical engineers work in concert with project teams to drive down design complexity while focusing development on core customer requirements. Electrical engineers quickly field and implement changes from customer feedback, which is critical to project success.

 

Essential Functions

  • Work in project teams to solve technical problems with hardware/firmware design solutions
  • Take hardware solutions from concept to schematic
  • Create PCB layouts from schematics
  • Write function-oriented, embedded C code, with a focus on code clarity
  • Control and document development with a version control system (Mercurial)
  • Work within existing design constructs when updating/optimizing existing codebases
  • Test and verify hardware/firmware through simulation, bench testing and field testing



Requirements

Competencies

  • Schematic Capture and PCB layout experience (Cadsoft EAGLE / Altium Designer)
  • Microcontroller development with ARM, STM32 (TI/Atmel/Microchip/SiLabs is a plus)
  • Experience with a version control system (Mercurial, Git)
  • Exceptional organization skills with a willingness to follow a style guide
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills
  • Time management
  • Dedication to work through problems outside of your engineering discipline

 

Other Interests

  • Scripting languages (Python)
  • RF design / Amateur Radio
  • Battery safety / design
  • Motor control
  • CAN Bus

Since a majority of SeaLandAire's business is funded by the US Department of Defense, applicants must be a "US Person" (US Citizen or Legal Permanent Resident).
