About Danger Devices
DangerDevices Inc. is a growing, fabless semiconductor start-up headquartered in Menlo Park, California. We aim to deliver best-in-class products to our customers with industry-leading design cycle times. We do that with our revolutionary, modernized approach focusing on software to increase productivity in all areas from integrated circuit design all the way to testing and data analysis.
Contribute to our industry leading team of circuit experts and software specialists. We are actively looking for Analog Integrated Circuit/Software Engineers to strengthen our team.
What you'll do:
- Analyze trade-offs between existing solutions and a custom design, including cost, performance, and other factors, to ensure all design goals are met.
- Design and implement complex RF and digital system designs for test and measurement (e.g. RF power detector module, RF synthesizer module) involving components such as ADCs, DACs, MCUs, RF switches, DSAs, VCOs, EEPROM, and more
- Select and troubleshoot the above components and designs
- Optimization of existing designs for RF performance and speed of acquisition, as well as scaling up for higher throughput
- Help perform high-level and component-level design and PCB layout where required.
- Help develop and test system firmware and software.
- Maintenance of MCU firmware and calibration software.
- Automation of PCB panelization and other PCB layout efficiencies.
- Perform integration testing of prototype systems.
- Provide field support of installed systems as required.
- Other duties as deemed necessary by leadership.
The skillset you'll bring:
A core value of the company is innovation - and we firmly believe that innovation can only occur when we're all willing to learn. You are an avid and curious learner with:
- A BS/MS in Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, or related discipline from an accredited college or university.
- Excellent asynchronous communication and collaboration skills.
- At least 1-2 years of firmware development experience using C, C++, Rust, or any other suitable language.
- At least 2 years of electronics design experience.
- Knowledge of common protocols such as SPI and I2C.
- Experience designing both digital and analog systems. RF experience a big plus.
- Experience using Altium Designer a plus.
