Chicago, IL, USA
Posted on Wednesday, May 29, 2024

Overview


Based in the former warehouse district of Fulton Market, Chicago’s lively West Loop area, which is now a hip corporate and entertainment area known for creative global and modern American restaurants, we have easy access to public transport, great restaurants, and an awesome office roof deck. You will join a highly effective, caring team in an office full of natural light, bikes, and donuts! Meet your teammates for a lakefront ride, yoga on the rooftop, or lunch on the balcony in between all the fun. Not all SRAM engineers are cyclists, but we all have a passion for creating our world class products. Enjoy a work environment focused on peer collaboration, continuous improvement, and hands-on creation of high-quality, robust bike components. In this role, you will contribute to the electrical hardware and software engineering on new electronic product development across a variety of SRAM brands and product categories.

Responsibilities


  • Build, deploy, and maintain software / firmware over full product lifecycle. Contribute to device-side embedded C running on ARM microprocessors. Develop device driver and application library code for use across SRAM AXS designs.
  • Collaborate with peers across multiple project teams to coordinate and optimize code for various use cases with broad reuse.
  • Design, layout, and verifiy mixed signal hardware designs, including microprocessors, serial communications, sensors, electromechanical systems, motor drivers, RF transceivers, and antenna systems. Optimize architectures for low-power battery operation.
  • Design, build, and test prototype printed circuit boards. Work closely with vendors on PCB stackup design and PCBA design for manufacturability.
  • Author design documentation. Write well designed, testable code. Conduct and contribute to hardware design and code reviews.
  • Support projects from inception through launch within a global team setting. Work closely with team leaders and product managers to understand and refine product concepts. Collaborate with mechanical, embedded software, test, and manufacturing engineers to develop jointly optimized designs.
  • Own, estimate, and track progress for tasks through all stages of a project to meet desired performance, cost, and time-to-market goals.

Qualifications


  • Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering, Computer Science or Computer Engineering.
  • 2+ years embedded system design, including deployment of a released-to-market product.
  • Demonstrated hardware debugging skill using oscilloscopes, logic/communication analyzers.
  • Embedded C software development. Skill with debuggers, version control, bug tracking, and automated test.
  • Excellent verbal and written English communication skills. Strong interpersonal and team skills are required.
  • Experience with the selection, design, and driver development for low power microprocessors, sensors, wireless SoCs, motor controllers, or digital communication (UART, SPI, I2C, JTAG, CAN bus)
  • Wireless embedded systems development. Design, verification, and EMC compliance approval for products including 2.4 GHz unlicensed radio transceivers. Use of RF network and spectrum analyzers to verify designs. Communication protocol development using Bluetooth / BLE / Bluetooth Smart, 802.15.4 / Zigbee, or ANT personal network protocols.
  • Development within established agile development methodologies and automated continuous integration.
  • Working within a quality-driven culture, where brand reputation is made or lost based on the reliability of released products.
  • Designing for high-reliability systems. Six sigma design-for-manufacturability, failure mode and effects analysis (FMEA), design of experiments (DoE), statistical analysis, and electrical assembly yield improvement.
  • Complementary hardware experience could include designing with ADCs, DACs, low-noise data acquisition, high-speed memory, LCDs, sensor ICs, or strain gauges.
  • Complementary software skills could include IoT systems development, microprocessor peripheral configuration, embedded driver development, Linux/gcc/make development environments, or Python scripting for test automation.
