Job CategoryMA - Systems Engineering and/or Architecture
Clearance LevelTop Secret
LocationMassachusetts, Lexington
Req Code17:BC-D7-020
Job Description
Solidus is searching for a Systems Engineer to develop advanced analog and power systems electronics.

The successful candidate will will work with analog and power circuit design for control applications in all physical environments including undersea, ground, and space. Specific circuit applications include motor drivers, laser pump diode current drivers, grounding, shielding, EMI/EMC, discrete power electronics such as buck/boost converters, DC/DC power converters, filters, power conversion, control and conditioning for high-power lasers and various other electromagnetic loads, battery conditioning and charging, current regulators, high current circuits, low noise charge integrators, and trans-impedance amplifiers.

Responsibilities involve working closely with a small team to define the system architecture, grounding scheme, and requirements based on high-level system requirements and the overall design, perform system trades on possible implementations, perform the electronics design and implementation with documentation, and test of the system running in and controlling the hardware.

Responsibilities also include detailed electronic circuit design and parts selection, simulation with tools such as PSpice, printed circuit board schematic capture such as Mentor Graphics, board layout oversight, board-level test and debugging, power distribution, documentation, subassembly electrical design, prototype module construction oversight, and test and integration with the overall prototype system.

- PhD with 5+ years, or MS with 8+ years, or BS with 11+ years of experience
- Must have current Active Top Secret Clearance
- Relevant experience = Electrical Engineering designing and implementing advanced analog and power electronics for demanding physical environments and high-reliability applications such as a space-based, space flight, underwater, or aerospace systems
Hands-on real-world experience with the following is required:
- Architecting, design, implementation, and test experience for analog and power electronic circuits including motor drivers, power conversion, high current amplifiers, trans-impedance amplifiers, laser pump diode current drivers and regulators, battery conditioning and charging, and various other electromagnetic loads.
- Experience with circuit & system-level grounding, shielding, EMI/EMC, discrete power electronics.
- Familiarity with various types of laboratory instrumentation, including oscilloscopes, waveform function generators, and meters.
- Experience with design and analysis tools: PSpice, Mentor Graphics schematic capture.
- Hands-on experience and a strong desire to work on all aspects of electronic system prototype development including architecting, design, analysis, implementation, integration, and test in a laboratory setting of all of the above.
Must have excellent interpersonal and communication skills and be able to work in a team-oriented environment with minimal supervision.
Additionally Desired but not strictly required:
- Digital electronics design, firmware programing using VHDL or Verilog, or micro-controller programming experience
- Experience with specifying electronic cables for signal integrity

Also somewhat desirable but NOT the primary focus of the requirement is:
- GUI, distributed applications and mobile applications on iOS and Android
- Embedded real-time software development including C/C++, Python, or ROS
- Familiarity with additional types of laboratory instrumentation, including logic analyzers, and frequency counters
