Sr. Engineer, Power Management Systems Applications Position Overview:

You will be working closely with a world-class team, as part of a funded start-up, which is creating world’s fastest and most efficient power management IC solutions to disrupt the multi-billion-dollar industry.

This position will be responsible for the following tasks and activities:

  • Power management IC system design, analysis, test, verification, and validation.
  • Design and deployment of LabView-based (or equivalent) GUIs to automate the interaction, control, and test of the power management ICs.
  • Laboratory evaluation of the test chips using oscilloscope, power supply, signal/pulse generator, multimeter, etc.
  • Communication of status, problems, limitations, and risks along with disciplined issue reporting and bug tracking.
  • Verification of the proposed system architectures and solutions through behavioral simulations and system modeling and analysis.
  • IC package and PCB design and optimization (schematic and layout), e.g., system integrity, parasitics extraction, etc.
  • Generate, validate, and publish key reference designs and customer applications solutions.
  • Create datasheets, application notes, evaluation kit manuals, layout guidelines, and simulation models.


  • Minimum MS degree in Electrical Engineering (or equivalent) with more than 7 years of experience with power management IC systems.
  • Hands-on experience with laboratory equipment and best practices for IC bring-up, test, and characterization.
  • Excellent LabView programming skills for test automation.
  • Experience with MATLAB/Simulink for system modeling, design, and analysis.
  • Familiar with measurement techniques and ultra-high-frequency switching systems.
  • Experience with circuit simulation tools, e.g., Cadence Virtuoso and Simplis.
  • Experience with IC package and PCB design and simulation tools, e.g., Cadence Allegro and Sigrity (PowerSI).
  • Strong problem-solving skills.
  • Good command of written and spoken English.
  • Self-motivated team player able to thrive in a fast-moving engineering environment.


  • Knowledge of control theory as applied to power management systems.
