Waterloo, ON, Canada
Posted on Friday, November 17, 2023

Position Summary

In this role you will lead electrical and mechanical projects relating to the eye tracking hardware developed by AdHawk. You may develop MEMS drive electronics and optical sensing circuits at the discrete level and collaborate on asics… and you’ll be able to submit MPW/shuttle runs to top-tier CMOS foundries for fabrication of test circuits and devices providing opportunities for circuit tapeout and validation. We have access to ample resources for assembly and test allowing our engineers to quickly iterate on designs. You’ll have the unique opportunity to work with a variety of hardware systems including flex, rigid-flex, HDI, VCSELs, and optics all under one roof.

You are a curious and driven person that loves to solve problems and develop new and innovative technology. You are capable of working independently, meeting tight deadlines with changing priorities, and managing multiple projects simultaneously.
