Taqtful Toys in Southern California is looking for a hardware engineer that can design a circuit board with components for mass production at a low cost. The engineer will need to advise on reliable/inexpensive components during the design process. Communication access to the factory in China is available if necessary.
Candidates must be available to work on a quick turn around. Opportunities for additional contract work are available. 5+ years experience designing circuit boards and programming them for mass production is preferred.
The design will be used in a computer peripheral toy device. The technology already exists, but needs to be adapted to new circuit board designed for mass production.
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.
