The Engineering Manager provides leadership, inspiration, direction, coordination, scheduling, work approval and hands-on engineering contribution for a present staff of three engineers. Central to all efforts will be a customer focus on commercial users who design products using the Propeller. Parallax business is evolving to increase design-in support of our commercial customers. This position will work closely with customers who design products using our Propeller chips. As the department and business increases, additional staff will be added to assume the same roles and the Engineering Manager will provide less hands-on engineering and increased direction and coordination to the engineering staff.
The main type of products that will be designed in our Engineering Department include Propeller-based products that also serve as open-source reference designs (i.e., PropScope, Propeller Web Server, etc.). Other less frequent designs (accessories for any microcontroller) include sensors, motor controllers, Ethernet/internet/WiFi compatible devices, and small signal analog interfaces. Some of these designs also have mechanical dependencies such as enclosures, mounting brackets or robotic assemblies. This requires an understanding of design dependencies (a thorough understanding of SolidWorks is not necessary).

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
