Electrical Engineer - High Speed

Los Gatos, CA 95030

Employment Type: Contract to Hire Category: Electrical Engineer Job Number: 10061 Pay Rate: $70/hr - $80/hr

Job Description


  • Bachelor’s degree or higher in Electronics/Telecommunication Engineering
  • 10+ years of experience in electronics hardware design including analysis, simulation, schematic capture, PCB layout, and testing (Altium preferred)
  • Proven experience in leading the design and development of complex communications systems
  • Design experience with complex microprocessor/DSP devices 
  • Design experience in the selection of components, taking into account not only the design specification, but also environmental, cost, EOL, lead time, etc.
  • Low level power supply design experience, using simulation (LTspice) and knowledge of power managers and monitoring devices.
  • Design experience of complex clocking and timing solutions including jitter, phase noise measurements
  • Design experience with on-board high speed data buses (e.g: PCIe, Serdes, JESD) – including analysis
  • Design experience with low/medium speed data buses (e.g: I2C, SPI, LVDS, PECL, RS422, LAN, CAN etc).
  • Hands-on attitude to problem-solving, using test equipment – Scopes, DSOs, DMMs, Soldering Iron, ENV chamber
  • Experience with thermal design techniques
  • Demonstrated success working in a dynamic environment
  • Design experience with on-board high speed data buses (e.g: PCIe, Serdes, JESD) – including analysis
  • VHDL/Verilog design experience – to create CPLD/FPGA designs, including test bench validation
  • Ability to write Python scripts (or similar lower-level scripting) to aid testing and investigation
  • Design experience with ASIC designs
  • RF knowledge
  • Experience with EMC (Immunity and Emissions), Environmental (temp, shock, vibration), Reliability (MTBF, MTTF), FMECA


  • Define next generation payload computer product requirements and conduct meticulous trade-offs
  • Design complex high-speed digital/analogue circuit boards from datasheet to completion for pre-production prototypes
  • Alongside the development teams, continue to contribute to problem solving with alternatives and feasibility studies
  • Procure and integrate evaluation modules and reference designs to complete a proof-of-concept operation of the platform
  • Design and build adaptation and break-out boards to create demonstration platforms as a stepping stone to full product development
  • Work with the software development teams to verify processing performance and memory bandwidth for the communications protocol stacks
  • Collaborate closely with international satellite development teams, including RF, Electrical, Mechanical, and Product teams
  • Conduct research in innovative communications systems architectures aligned with the evolving needs of the satellite network
