Freefly Systems, the company that redefined camera movement with the
introduction of the Mōvi (a compact, lightweight, 3 axis camera stabilizer)
is forming an elite team within the Engineering department to raise the bar
even higher. We are on the lookout for a uniquely talented architecture
Engineer to get in on the fun.
As a member of the Drone Program team, you'll join us on our mission to
develop the next generation of innovative unmanned aerial vehicles in a fast
paced, multidisciplinary, startup environment.
The ideal candidate is a jack of all trades with a diverse portfolio of built
work spanning multiple disciplines and demonstrates a thorough understanding
of complex electromechanical systems. Experience in multiple software
packages, entrepreneurship/consulting, aerospace and/or consumer electronics
are a plus. Most importantly, you must have a positive “can do” attitude, play
well with others, embrace a challenge, and realize that every failure is a
critical step toward creating innovative products.
Lead electrical systems design engineering efforts for entire products or
subsystems, from concept through production. Manage the product lifecycle
and identify continuous improvement opportunities.
Establish requirements and test plans for integrating required peripherals
and IO into a product.
Create wiring diagrams and plan the high-level architecture of a product
containing multiple circuit boards and wiring harnesses
Design, develop, and test electrical subsystems at both the board and
Perform simulation, testing, and analysis to ensure products that live up
to Freefly name
Multi task across a range of products in varying levels of completion
while meeting schedules and hitting milestones.
Provide cross-functional support to internal and external teams
Mentor and teach whenever possible
5+ years of experience designing, building, and deploying the electrical
architecture for complex electrical systems containing multiple circuit
boards and wiring harnesses
Experience doing schematic and board design in PCB layout software.
Preferred to have experience with Altium
Experience with designing power distribution architectures, ranging from
high power (>100A) to low power (uA-level)
Experience with RF applications, including integration, troubleshooting
and testing of radios and GPS receivers
Knowledgeable of EMI/EMC, including design principles to minimize
emissions and improve robustness in high EMI/EMC environments
Ability to be self-guided in taking a non-functioning electrical system
prototype and diagnose the problem, perform design updates, and document
solutions and validation tests
Experience defining wiring harnesses, drawing wiring diagrams, and
selecting wire and connectors for both in-product and customer facing
Serial digital communication knowledge (UART, I2C, CAN, SPI)
High speed communication knowledge (USB, Ethernet, HDMI, MIPI)
Experience writing, reviewing, and carrying out test plans at both the
board level and product level of a complex electrical system
Hands on experience with measurement and test equipment (oscilloscopes,
logic analyzers, etc)
Comfortable taking a product from concept to shipping in the 3-6 month
Excellent communication skills, verbally and written
Experience working with multidisciplinary groups driving schedule and
Passion for learning, iterating, and first principles
Must possess great ‘feel'. We need to move fast and good hunches save time
Experience developing high-reliability and/or safety-critical electrical
systems with fault-tolerant design redundancy
Experience with radio communications systems such as serial and ethernet
modems, wifi, etc.
ARM Cortex M3/M4/M7 software development or debugging experience
Knowledge of real-time digital control loop tuning
Experience diagnosing and/or designing DC-DC converters and 3-phase motor
Experience with imaging sensors & processing is a plus
Experience with git or other version control systems
