Embedded Applications Engineer

We have lots of projects
You have lots of engineering interests
Lets Talk!

We offer competitive salaries depending on your experience. We also have a bonus plan and all those competitive benefits you would expect. 

About Us

We design products for our customers. They are a diverse bunch and they really like us:

Think big fancy coffee machines at your local bean dealer, restaurant bread ovens and such

Things factories use – laser markers, robot controls, wireless gas and fluid detectors, pumps and other stuff you use while wearing gloves

Gizmos to help your doctor – removing clots, zapping nerves, feeding your baby, weighing your medicine

Helping advance the technology of our men and women in uniform like staying safe from toxins, and keeping the power on in the field

Qualities you bring to the position

  • Like working with top hardware engineers
  • Use the latest lab test equipment to troubleshoot your guitar amp
  • Like looking at electronic schematics (don’t be embarrased, we do too)
  • Know your way around datasheets (I mean, it’s more entertaining than watching the Rise of Skywalker).
  • Like to work with the latest technology
  • Love to bring products to life
