3D Printer Company Needs an Electrical Engineer! at Formlabs @ Adafruit Jobs Board.

Formlabs is a funded MIT spinoff developing a high quality, low cost 3D printer that works out of the box, enabling designers and makers to create 3D forms by simply hitting the print button. Our product will fuse a novel additive manufacturing technology with a unique design-centric approach to achieve an incredible user experience yet to be seen in personal fabrication.
We’re looking for a talented and passionate full-time Electrical Engineer to harness mastery over digital, analog, and electromechanical devices and lead the development of the hardware brains of our product. Equity compensation for your early-stage involvement in our company from the ground floor will be provided.

Own the development of electrical systems, from prototyping to volume PCB production.
Design and implement embedded system architecture, and work closely with our software engineers to integrate firmware and software drivers
Work closely with our mechanical engineers and industrial designers to develop product grade hardware integration
Manage PCB fabrication at scale, unit assembly, and QA

3+ years of experience in the design and troubleshooting of embedded systems, analog/digital feedback control systems, and motor control electronics
Ability to design, build, and debug robust and tightly integrated PCBs
Good knowledge of common embedded peripherals and communication protocols
Strong embedded C programming skills

What we really really want:
A skilled electromancer who can wield their powers to cause many intricate subsystems to sing together in perfect harmony
An individual who finds true joy in creating precise designs as well as nasty hacks (when necessary)
Someone who is passionate about and/or has experience in the field of rapid prototyping
Experience designing and shipping electronic products in volume

We are located in Industry Labs at 288 Norfolk St., Suite #4, Cambridge, MA 02139.
