Altius Space Machines is a small “newspace” startup founded by the former propulsion and control system/software engineers at Masten Space Systems which won the Lunar Lander Challenge in 2009. We started a rapid prototyping company that will be building anything from sub-orbital rockets, UAVs, vertical landers, orbital launchers, to nanosatellites.
(Clarification: due to the aerospace nature of our work we can only hire US citizens or green card holders)
We are looking for an electronics hacker to take over all the electronics development and ideally also the hardware interface software. We are very small so this person must be a generalist that can work on any electronics project without supervision.
- Responsibilities: Design of electronics circuits, PCBs, component selection, assembling and testing circuits, interfacing with sensors and actuators, high power electronics for driving valves and motors, radio frequency circuit design.
- Qualifications: Hands-on experience on electronics design and development. Demonstrate the skills to take on all the responsibilities mentioned before.
- Desirable: C, microcontrollers, or real-time systems programming experience
You will work hard but you will have a good time.
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.
