Hardware Engineer

As a Hardware Engineer at Bridge12, you will work on multidisciplinary projects that involve the development of control systems for microwave and terahertz generators, particle accelerators and other scientific instrumentation involving real-time and embedded software, firmware and hardware. The candidate shall have a solid knowledge of FPGA design and be capable of RTL design, simulation, physical implementation and verification of complex FPGA modules comprising a mix of custom RTL with hard and soft vendor IP cores within a larger architecture. The candidate should be experienced in circuit design, schematic capture and board bring up. The candidate shall be responsible for selecting components and determining hardware test specification based on required parameter, performance and cost criteria. The candidate will interface with cross functional teams for firmware design/development team and mechanical engineering team. This position requires creativity and alternative thinking to develop new ideas for efficient hardware implementation. There will be occasional travel associated with installation and testing at customer site.
