This is great opportunity for a hands-on Electrical Engineer to use their knowledge and skills to support the development of a complex Hardware-in-the-Loop (HITL) test bed. This is a very flexible position where you will have a great opportunity to broaden your skill set, while tackling very unique and challenging engineering problems. Very rarely will you have two months, or even weeks, in a row that are the same.

This position gives a unique opportunity to perform some reverse engineering analysis of hardware in order to properly integrate it into a test bed. In this position, you will design, build and test prototype electrical interfaces (e.g. power distribution, electronic filters, control boxes, etc.) to integrate hardware into the laboratory test bed. You will read through electrical schematics, interface control documents, product manuals, etc. in order to understand system operation and to perform hardware integration tasks.

You will participate in test planning, system integration, and test activities as well as troubleshoot and debug the test bed hardware and software.
