    Wanted: Transistor Nerd / Sr IC Analog Design Engineer

    We seek an experienced, somewhat foolhardy IC designer for Analog and Digital devices. Someone who has shipped designs and enjoys strange and interesting widgets. Experience with optics and graphics is a plus, as is good taste in music.

     

    Successful candidates will have an MS or BS in EE or related fields, and will have several years of experience across the design and production of real parts. Candidates should be ready to try crazy new ideas, and also ready to thrive in the company of hard working lunatics, whilst working on impossible tasks.

     

    This is a position of responsibility on a team trying something very new, whose every member needs to deliver. Hawaiian wear required for Friday lunches.
