Position Summary
Our team is looking for an Electrical Engineer who wants to get down and dirty with science, move fast and break things in a quest to transform medical diagnostics. Our future teammate is a hands-on, motivated person ready to tackle the challenges of point-of-care diagnostics, cutting-edge microfluidics, and assay engineering in both research and clinical settings.

Roles and Responsibilities:
Their duties include, but are not limited to:

  • Work under minimal supervision to design, layout, construct, and evaluate a variety of prototype Printed Circuit Boards (PCBs), fixtures, and tools.
  • Experience with rigid flex, and metalcore PCBs is a plus.
  • Develop electronic systems for prototype and eventually production. This includes (but is not limited to):
  • Electro-optical (lasers, LEDs, photo sensors, etc.)
  • Electromechanical (motors, encoders, actuators, etc.)
  • Thermodynamic systems (Peltier, joule heating, etc.)
  • Assemble said systems (including programming); this includes getting your hands dirty.
  • Work well with interdisciplinary teams to both provide support and to receive support.
  • Troubleshoot electronics and provide feedback for upgrades.
  • Full life cycle development from layout to manufacturing.
  • Follow good documentation practices. This includes following proper design control procedures, including maintaining lab notebooks.


  • A minimum of a B.S. in an Electrical Engineering or relevant discipline.
  • 5+ years' experience in an electrical engineering position.
  • Electrical circuit design starting from schematic capture to final board layout.
  • Electrical circuit analysis using fist order hand calculations and simulations.
  • Electronic Printed Circuit Board CAD tool design experience such as Altium (preferred).
  • Create and manage PCB documentation including fabrication and assembly packages, such as Gerber, ODB, BOM, fabrication and assembly drawings.
  • Electronics assembly skills in an ESD environment. This includes hand soldering and assembling prototype electronics.
  • Be able to perform testing and troubleshoot designs with knowledge of tools such as multimeters, oscilloscopes, and logic analyzers.
  • Experience with programming in languages such as C/C++ and Python.
  • Experience working with SPI, I2C, UART and other interface protocols.
  • Some Bonus qualifications (nice to have but not required):
  • Familiarity working in a Medical Device company.
  • Regulatory testing such as IEC 60601 and 61010.
  • Experience with Pick-and-Place machines.

Desired Skills and Traits

  • Enjoy taking on new challenges and finding creative ways to solve a problem.
  • Pay attention to detail and take pride in your work. Your motto: If you're going to do something, do it right the first time!
  • Are a collaborative team player who will do what needs to be done for the good of the team-no egos here.
  • Recognize that science is becoming more and more interdisciplinary-you are not afraid to learn new tools from engineering, mathematics, statistics, and biochemistry to solve problems - moving out of your discipline excites more than it scares (a little scare is ok)
  • Have a strong passion for the scientific method and subscribe to the philosophy that "data is beautiful"-seeing improperly presented data makes you break out in hives and immediately move to rectify the situation.
  • Communicate effectively. You write well. You speak eloquently.
  • Demonstrate a strong creative thinking and problem-solving toolbox
  • Are hands on, equally as comfortable in front of the computer as you are holding a soldering iron.
  • Want to take an idea from whiteboard to breadboard to Printed Circuit Board and not get bored when it repeats all over again.
