Today’s featured job – Engineering Manager at Parallax Inc. – Adafruit Jobs Board

Pt 10464

Engineering Manager at Parallax Inc. @ The Adafruit Jobs Board

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).
