Experience Level
Desired Skills
Printed Circuit Board (PCB) Design
  • Experience with electrical distribution, logic, and signal processing/manipulation, including CAN bus, differential signaling, and transmission line theory
  • Familiarity with electrical distribution, PCB assembly, modifications and repairs to SMT boards down to 0402 component sizes, high and low voltage wiring harnesses and circuit protection devices with the use of tools and processes such as oscilloscopes, micropencil, and PIDG Crimps (must be able to inspect crimps)
  • Strong fundamentals in mechanical engineering, including fabrication and design
  • Thorough understanding of DFM, DFA, DFT, and DFR principles for both mechanical and electrical systems
  • Candidates with unconventional experiences especially encouraged
  • Willingness to get hands-on and have lots of fun
  • Multiple years of experience in hardware design and assembly of both mechanical and electrical systems
  • High-performing power electronics experience including comfort developing for high-voltage (60-1500VDC and 30-1000VAC) as defined by ECE/324/Rev.2, servicing industrial batteries of varied chemistries, and implementing wide-ranging DC-DC and DC-AC converters
  • Metalworking with use of tools such CAD, MIG and MMA welding, and common machining methods
  • Background in safety-critical software/system development (preferably a ground robotics functional safety standard such as ISO 26262 or IEC 61508)
  • Prior experience developing and supporting all aspects of autonomy for a production ground-vehicle subsystem, or research prototype (end-to-end, full lifecycle development preferred)
  • Startup experience
  • Comprehensive profile of personal projects relating to mechatronics systems
  • Maintain and improve the reliability of current vehicle autonomy systems, including all electrical and mechanical aspects of our autonomous sensing and actuation platform, as well as the base vehicle itself
  • Define, lead, and own the hands-on creation of new vehicle platform integrations to expand the compatibility of our autonomy systems with a broad range of airport vehicles
  • Design, test, and track the safety-critical functionality of our autonomous vehicle through simulations and real-world test runs, including executing a multi-stage pilot project in contexts that include baggage halls, vehicle corridors and the airport apron
  • Work with the autonomy engineering team at large to support all aspects of ground vehicle autonomy, including calibration and integration of perception, planning, navigation, and control systems
  • Up to 50% travel may be required
