Open Positions –


Hardware (Electrical) Engineer

Based in Southern California, Renkus-Heinz is seeking a full-time Electrical Engineer to join our Engineering team. This position requires an experienced analog and digital hardware engineer with outstanding technical skills both in mixed signals as well as moderate high-speed design experience. The individual will be responsible for the design, simulation, and validation of a variety of electrical systems and components including items like switched mode power supplies, audio DSP processors, network interfaces, Class-D amplifiers, and other audio related components. The Hardware Engineer must contribute to collaborative projects where what matters most is our success in bringing products to market quickly with exceptional quality and reliability. This will be a full-time position; work-at-home opportunities will be limited due to the demands of lab work and in-house production support.

Key Responsibilities:

  • Direct development of subsystem architectures – PCB design, layout, testing, and validation
  • Participation and development in schematic design and capture, PCB floor planning, part evaluation and sourcing, cost evaluations
  • Circuit development including on-board switching power supply design, power regulation, Class-D audio circuit layout, AC circuits, networks, filters, high-speed circuits, and signals
  • Power and thermal design, optimization, development, and management
  • Design coordination across HW, Firmware, SW, Diagnostic and Mechanical engineering departments
  • CAD design of circuits and printed circuit board layouts, interfacing with the Mechanical Engineer to ensure proper fitment of system components and optimal heat transfer
  • Develop system and circuit characterization programs to qualify designs against specifications.
  • Perform board level debug and validation of new and existing designs
  • Assist in Safety and EM Certification of designs conforming to IEC, UL, and international standards
  • Performing or assisting with troubleshooting and root cause analysis of existing and new designs or system issues
  • Setting up test apparatus or devising test equipment and circuitry to conduct functional, operational, environmental, and life tests to evaluate performance and reliability of prototype or production models.
  • Design with manufacturing in mind from an electrical and mechanical perspective to improve manufacturing of products, assemblies, or components.
  • Analysis and evaluation of datasheets and component specifications for existing and new designs.
  • Produce related documentation such as block diagrams, netlists, Gerber documentation, schematic diagrams, and bills of materials

Basic Qualifications, Experience, Skills & Education Required

Education: Minimum BS in Electrical Engineering, MSEE Preferred from an accredited university.

Work Experience: B.S. or a M.S. in Electrical Engineering and at least 5 years of work experience in a manufacturing environment or similar relevant experience.
