Job description

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 Electrical Engineer to get in on the fun.

As a member of the team, you'll join us on our mission to develop the next generation of innovative industrial and cinematic products 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 learn from failure as a critical step toward creating innovative products.


  • Electrical systems design for subsystems or entire products, from concept through production.
  • 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 product level.
  • Perform simulation, testing, and analysis to ensure products that live up to Freefly name
  • Multitask 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
  • Required Qualifications:

  • Experience doing schematic and board design in PCB layout software.
  • Experience designing, building, and deploying the electrical architecture for systems containing multiple circuit boards and wiring harnesses
  • 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
  • Serial digital communication knowledge (UART, I2C, SPI)
  • Experience with designing power distribution architectures, ranging from high power (100+A) to low power (uA-level)
  • Hands-on experience with measurement and test equipment (oscilloscopes, logic analyzers, etc)
  • Experience writing, reviewing, and carrying out test plans at both the board level and system level
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills
  • Experience working with multidisciplinary teams
  • Passion for learning and problem solving from first principles
  • Preferred Qualifications:

  • Experience with Altium PCB design software.
  • Knowledge of design principles to minimize electromagnetic emissions and improve immunity to electromagnetic interference.
  • High speed communication knowledge (USB, Ethernet, HDMI, MIPI)
  • High noise-immunity serial busses (RS485, CAN)
  • 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, GPS receivers, 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 controllers
  • Experience defining wiring harnesses, drawing wiring diagrams, and selecting wire and connectors for both in-product and customer facing wires
  • Experience with imaging sensors & processing is a plus
  • Experience with git or other version control systems
  • Openings are available for both experienced candidates and exceptional new graduates.
