  • Senior Electrical Engineer

    Location: Portland OR

    We have an exciting opportunity available for a Senior Electrical Engineer!

    As the Senior Electrical Engineer you will be an expert in the electrical design of custom circuit boards. All facets of design will be required of this individual. If you are a senior/principle engineer and want to focus on pure electrical design of products, this is the job for you!

    PacStar is a leading supplier of small, rugged, and modular networking solutions primarily to the DoD. The PacStar 400 series product line has become a 'de-facto' standard for deployed IP communications in the US Army and USMC. A series of wins over the last 3 years has resulted in significant growth in this business. You will be the primary electrical designer for the next generation of 400 series modules, and as such, a key member of the team continuing to move new technologies to the edge of the network.

    Your Challenge:

    • Translate product level requirements into implementable circuits

    • Work with Mechanical Engineering, Systems Engineering, and Management in an interactive manner to develop electrical solutions to project requirements

    • Define potential electrical implementation solutions and discuss tradeoffs

    • Design electrical solutions for PacStar products implemented as BOMS and Schematics in Altium

    • Low power (2 -- 60W), low voltage (3, 5, 12, and 48 VDC) power circuits

    • LI-ION battery charging and monitoring circuits

    • PoE circuits

    • High Speed signal routing for Ethernet ports (100 Mbps to 10 Gbps)

    • Coordinate with purchasing and board build house for fabrication and assembly of engineering test units

    • Provide advance BOM's to Purchasing

    • Be proactive in the identification of long lead items. Acquire samples and small lots early in the design process to mitigate timing impact

    • Provide technical guidance as needed to board assembly house

    • Board turn-up/debug/test

    • Receive first run engineering circuit boards

    • Perform basic turn-up and debugging of boards

    • Develop and test any microprocessor-based functions on the board (usually simple board hotel functions)

    • Develop and execute Design Verification Testing

    • Support Mechanical Engineering during physical integration of electronics into modules

    • Experience with EMI/EMC and ESD testing and debugging is preferred

    • Transition designs to manufacturing

    • Provide complete design packages to enable production build. Board production quantities are in the high hundreds per year utilizing mostly on-shore suppliers.

    • Develop and provide simple functional test plans/systems to board assembly house

    • Support factory with problem resolution and test support when required

    • Support designs once they are in the field

    • Provide technical support to field issues should they occur

    • Modify designs, if required, in response to field problems

    • Provide technical support for existing designs. All are fully documented in Altium and have been in production for 1 to 3 years.

    • Coordinate/communicate with management regarding schedule, milestones, technical status, etc.

    • Performance requires physical attendance Your Expertise:

    • 10+ years direct design experience of circuit boards

    • BS in Electrical Engineer required

    • Deep experience in the design of circuit boards in Altium

    • The ability to layout boards in Altium is desired

    • Experience with MIL-STD-810G, MIL-STD-461, and MIL-STD-471 is desired

    • Familiarity with design of network devices (Switches, Routers) and servers is a plus

    • Strong work ethic and commitment to customer support

    • Strong written and verbal communication skills

    • Accuracy and attention to detail is a must

    • Must be able to self-organize workloads and manage all deadlines
