Boosted is looking for a motivated and talented senior electrical engineer to join our rapidly growing team. You will be a key member of the team, where you will be defining, analyzing, designing, validating and testing all aspects of electrical designs for new products. You will be working in a small, tightly knit team, rapidly hacking your way through creating some of the world’s most advanced lightweight electric vehicles.

The Role

  • You will be working in a fast-paced startup environment, a key member of a small team working on big ideas.

  • You will own the  electrical design from end-to-end for new innovative light electric vehicles: from concept through architecture and design, simulation and analysis, to production and test.

  • You will be responsible for both helping to define product performance requirements and writing test plans to validate those requirements are met both in development and volume production.

  • You will work closely with internal and external teams to manage risks and keep projects on schedule.

  • You will be a key liaison with Boosted’s manufacturing partners.

The Requirements

  • BS or higher degree in Electrical Engineering or Physics (MS preferred).

  • 5+ years of relevant coursework or work experience.

  • Experienced in the selection and use of DSPs, microcontrollers, and programmable logic devices and their peripheral circuitry (signal conditioning, voltage level translators, etc.).

  • Comfortable designing and testing board-level power supplies.

  • Familiar with 100W-1kW+ power switching circuits, high power semiconductor devices, gate drivers, and protection circuitry. Familiar with basic control theory and digital implementation of controls.

  • Experienced doing or supervising PCB layout, defining PCB stack-up requirements, and optimizing component placements and routing in high power switching circuits for minimal EMC.

  • Experienced in development of digital and analog interfaces for PC-based test systems, especially (Labview, Matlab, Python).

  • Proficient with standard EE tools (scopes, network analyzers, etc.)

  • Excited to join a team of skilled, dedicated engineers working on the next generation of light electric vehicles!

Preferred Qualifications

  • Experienced with embedded programming of DSPs and FPGAs in real-time control applications.

  • Familiar with automotive networking (e.g. CAN) standards.

  • Experienced in obtaining product safety certification through an NRTL (e.g. UL, CE, CSA, CCC, etc.)
