Embedded Hardware Design Engineer

About the Position

The successful engineer at DE Design Works enjoys working in a casual collaborative team environment with other engineers and
customers on a variety of product development projects which typically include custom hardware and software, wired and wireless
communications technologies, control systems, and user interfaces. The team member is comfortable working independently and
collaboratively on multiple projects, balancing priorities, designing complex analog, power, and high‐speed digital circuits, and
strives for continuous learning. The embedded hardware designer will define architecture, generate schematics, layout complicated
printed circuit board assemblies and be skilled at troubleshooting. This is a great opportunity to work with the latest technology and
a world class team bringing products to life. This position offers a unique experience of work‐life flexibility and balance though
virtual collaboration and residence at our Chesterfield, MO offices R&D design lab in St. Louis.
