Health Sensing HW - Sensor Architect

Santa Clara Valley (Cupertino), California, United States


Role Number:200290697
The Health Sensing Hardware team is looking for a highly-motivated engineer to work with research scientists and engineers on the next generation of health sensors. You will play a key role in conceiving, modeling, and prototyping new sensor solutions and bringing a new sensor to a successful product launch. This role requires engineering excellence, creativity, and the ability to lead cross-functional collaboration.

Key Qualifications

  • Deep understanding of EE, ME, and Physics fundamentals
  • Experience modeling, building, and testing complex systems
  • Demonstrated excellence designing sensors and/or EE systems in an industry/mass-production environment
  • Proficiency in Python, MATLAB, or equivalent simulation languages
  • Ability to work independently, to take leadership of engineering activities, and to align efforts across teams
  • Excellent communication, teamwork, and leadership skills
  • Experience with the following is a plus:
  • Health sensor design (e.g., optical, electrical, thermal, etc.)
  • FMEA analysis
  • System thermal characterization
  • Statistical analysis
  • User study development


You will play a key role defining the architecture of new health sensors. You will use analytical methods, computer modeling, and experimental data to define a design that achieves the design goals. In particular, you will develop comprehensive models to guarantee performance; identify figures of merit critical to user experience; assess and negotiate design tradeoffs; author requirements specifications; build proof of concept hardware; design user studies for performance assessment; analyze and reconcile study or production data with model predictions; perform failure analysis, identify root causes and propose corrective actions; and provide leadership and clear technical updates to the broader team and executives. You will collaborate with cross-functional teams on activities such as -Mechanical design and PCB design -FMEA modeling and verification -Algorithm development -Sensor calibration and reliability testing -Chipset design requirements -User study design and analysis

Education & Experience

MS or PhD in EE, Physics, Biomedical Engineering, or related field 7+ years of relevant hands-on experience 5+ years of industry experience preferred
