Electrical engineers at our site design and modify digital and analog PC boards. You will work with real-time systems, FPGA programming and ion physics as it relates to vacuum systems. Examples would be a magnetic sector spectrometer and circuitry with femtoamp sensitivity and high voltage power supplies, or an SOC or microprocessor to control the spectrometer, solenoid valves, HMI and serial and LAN communications.

This is a perfect opportunity to join a fast paced, energetic R&D team, and become a key contributor to the future growth and success of the business.
