We’re a small (19 people), rapidly growing company that makes scientific instrumentation, primarily for the biomedical market. We’re developing new products at a breakneck pace and need to add an experienced, versatile engineer to our team. The attributes we need: Experience in electronic design (analog and digital), practical assembly/fabrication skills, firmware design skills for PIC microcontrollers, and C/C#/C++/VB/Labview (one or more) programming ability. A hands-on, can-do approach and the ability to work with a team are essential. If you have experience in a manufacturing environment, Solidworks skills or mechanical design skills, all the better. The job location is Las Vegas, which, contrary to what you might think, is a great place to live and work. If you’re interested, please send us a brief resume.
Each week we hear from people getting jobs or companies finding the perfect match, all from using the free Adafruit Job boards!
Adafruit publishes a wide range of writing and video content, including interviews and reporting on the maker market and the wider technology world. Our standards page is intended as a guide to best practices that Adafruit uses, as well as an outline of the ethical standards Adafruit aspires to. While Adafruit is not an independent journalistic institution, Adafruit strives to be a fair, informative, and positive voice within the community – check it out here: adafruit.com/editorialstandards
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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
