Electronic Circuit Design and Computer Architecture Consultant

The Challenge:

What if you could use your engineering skills to transform our nation's global defense capabilities? We’re looking for skilled microelectronics engineers to help drive advancements in microelectronics research for the DoD. As an early- to mid-career hardware design engineer, you understand the challenges of innovation beyond Moore’s Law. That knowledge is key when it comes to supporting high-risk, high-reward projects that seek revolutionary change beyond the state-of-the-art.

As a micro-electronics engineer on our team, you will get the chance to serve as a strategic technical consultant for advanced government-funded research and development programs in microelectronics, including advanced microprocessor design and complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor (CMOS) technologies. Work with world-class scientists and engineers for a DoD client to impact national security investments through the development of cutting-edge technologies. Leverage technical expertise to provide strategic assessments of new technologies to support senior DoD decision makers. Maintain responsibility for producing and presenting findings and recommendations to a team of colleagues and clients on the feasibility and potential impact of future research programs, assisting with the management of current programs, and facilitating the transition of program deliverables to DoD stakeholders. Join us and take on exciting challenges.
