  • Demonstrated record of being a kind and trustworthy teammate with high standards
  • Experience in electronics engineering
  • Demonstrated skills developing embedded systems
  • BS degree or higher in Electrical Engineering or related field
  • 4+ years of relevant electrical engineering experience

We encourage the following qualifications:

  • Mastery over PCB schematics and board design for embedded systems
  • Designing, developing, testing, and verifying electrical, and electromechanical systems
  • Microcontrollers, digital sensors, and digital circuits design
  • Analog sensors and analog circuit design to interface with digital circuits
  • Batteries, power management, and safety
  • Experience with professional cable harness and cable management design
  • Ability to apply engineering principles and simulation (e.g., SPICE) to electrical system designs
  • Familiarity with microcontrollers programming using C
  • Familiarity with robotics sensors (e.g., IMUs, encoders, cameras, etc.)
  • Experience with electronics packaging for industrial applications

Please note: You do not need to match every single bullet point listed above to apply for this position. At ARIX, we believe that diverse perspectives are vital to nurturing the spirit of innovation and success. We are committed to building a dream team that encompasses a variety of backgrounds, experiences, and skills.
