Sr. Embedded System Controls Engineer
Ref No.: 19-09000
Location: Menlo Park, California
The Senior Controls Engineer has significant influence over our architecture while being part of a dynamic team responsible for hardware, electronics, controls, performance, and software. The engineer will identify system dynamics, design and simulate control algorithms, and implement and test the designs on hardware. This is an exciting opportunity for an automation and controls generalist with a passion for application, implementation, and integration.
Implement algorithms and continuous-integration (MIL, SIL, PIL) tests in C++17.
Debug sensors, actuators, and subsystems for noise and disturbances and assist calibration, verification, and validation
Design and simulate automation, controllers, diagnostics, and fail-safes for a Client integrate platform
Support reliability and manufacturing testing of systems under control
Communicate algorithms with block-diagrams, pseudo-code, code, etc.
