Overview

Come join one of the fastest growing firms in the US!

We are seeking a  Electrical Engineer with substantial experience in the design and development of highly-efficient power supply and LED driver designs.

In this exciting role, you will be a part of  the process from concept investigation and design analysis to successful production execution. 

Using analytical and problem solving skills the Electrical Engineer will help guide decision making in the organization. The ability to work effectively with cross-functional teams is extremely important.

Our company is not focused on irrelevant rules and wasteful processes.  Instead we value and reward specific behaviors aligned with our culture and company objectives.  We value the ability to collaborate, learn and provide the freedom necessary for each person to do their work, with the expectation that we will get high performance in return.

The Electrical Engineer will have strong and effective communications skills to coordinate with a cross-functional team to meet very aggressive performance, cost and schedule goals.  These communication skills will be critical when partnering with management of outside resources for design, prototyping, and testing of new power supplies/drivers.

The right candidate will adhere to robust design methodologies for successful project execution and possess good understanding of thermals, mechanical and packaging challenges. Candidate must also possess knowledge of high volume manufacturing technologies and production variance.

We want someone to come in and roll up their sleeves and troubleshoot, so a hands-on lab worker is a must along with deep knowledge of offline conversion topologies including Flyback, Buck, PFC, resonant converters, LLC and analog/digital controls loops.

Candidate must be intimately familiar with power supply safety and environmental certifications, offline controllers, components, magnetic design, power supply layout and state-of the art techniques for efficiency optimizations including no load/light load efficiency techniques.

The Electrical Engineer will help in architecture investigation with the power architect and help determine the best design option for power metric performance optimization including but not limited to efficiency, power density, cost and scalability.

Responsibilities

 

  • Design analysis, modeling, DFM, prototype development, qualification, safety/REL certifications
  • Design simulation, calculations and analytical models for prediction of design concept outcome
  • Design risk assessments, mitigation plans, development lessons learned and proof of concepts
  • Design Schematic and BOM; Work with layout team for LED driver layouts
  • Conduct design and layout reviews with cross-functional teams
  • Prototype tests and validation results, document multi-dimensional activities
  • Keep up-to-date on state-of-the art technologies   
  • Competitive bench marking for each project
  • Troubleshoot design and production issues

Qualifications

  • BS in Electrical Engineering or Computer Science
  • 2 years of professional experience with at least 2 years experience in power electronics
  • Proficiency with schematic editor and PCB layout, simulation tool ex: Spice
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills
  • Willingness to travel domestically and internationally (less than 20%)

 We are an equal opportunity employer that values diversity at all levels. All individuals, regardless of personal characteristics, are encouraged to apply.
