Embedded Controls Engineer/Developer
The Challenge:

What if you could use your engineering skills to transform a DoD client? As an electrical engineer, you understand the power behind complex systems. That knowledge is key when it comes to developing the hardware and software required for controls. We're looking for an electrical engineer who can use their skills to design and develop operator interface modules, controls architecture, and other related electronic components.

Our team conducts research and development, test and evaluation, prototype development, and deployment sustainment support to client systems. That's why we need you, an electrical engineer with both hardware and software expertise, to help us design and develop innovate solutions and systems. You'll design, test, and analyze electronic equipment to establish operating controls. This is a chance to use your electrical or software development skills while gaining experience in a wide array of other disciplines, including pulsed power, electrical, mechanical, and systems engineering. Join us and take on exciting challenges in the DoD.

Analyze the design, development, and modification of complicated and difficult hardware devices and systems. Analyze the technical process or phases of projects and coordinate the efforts of technical support personnel, drafters, technical writers, and electronics technicians, as required. Develop and recommend design approaches for new or improved products and processes. Consolidate the results of hardware design elements for assigned projects. Conduct independent technical investigations involving the origination or modification of material, component, or process specifications and requirements. Evaluate vendor capabilities to provide required products or services. Provide work leadership to junior employees.

Empower change with us.
