  • You have experience in developing and bringing to market highly complex, consumer electronics products (e.g. battery powered connected mobile devices).

  • You have experience with electronics CAD tools (preferably Altium Design).

  • You have experience shipping high-volume consumer products in a design role.

  • You have hands-on experience and know-how on every step of the process required to bring electronic products to production.

  • Production and test engineering knowledge

What you’ll get:
