Zoox's Advanced Hardware Engineering team is looking for a senior electrical test engineer to work closely with our circuit design engineers on the development of in-house electronics for our robots. Responsibilities of this role will range from defining test plans, designing and running board-level signal and power integrity tests for validating the electric design and its margins to feeding the learnings and improvements back into the design. You will use internal and external standards to define and track appropriate test thresholds as well as drive test coverage. You will also be involved in root causing board failures, sometimes leading you deep into the vehicle architecture.
Strong electrical engineering fundamentals in analog/digital design, communications, sensors, power supplies, and embedded systems
6+ years of professional work experience
A genuine passion for uncovering latent issues and bugs by diagnosing hardware, software, and process issues
Experience with SI and PI measurement techniques
Experience with Gbps or faster serial buses such as GMSL or FPDlink
Experience running ESD and EMI tests at external test labs
Familiarity with lab equipment including VNA, TDR, oscilloscope, spectrum analyzer, etc.
Familiarity with OS tools, shell scripting, and file system manipulation in both Linux and Windows
Experience automating testing in heat chambers
Experience programming in Python and/or C/C++
Experience with Altium or equivalent PCB CAD package
Experience with SI and PI simulation
Specific experience simulating and validating DDR memory layouts
