We engineer our farms to operate as advanced manufacturing lines. As a Senior Electrical Engineer, you will be responsible for the electronics, controls, and embedded software in our industrial machinery. The machines you create will autonomously handle millions of pounds of produce. Your work will enable our robots to communicate with each other and work as a team to grow, process, and package fresh produce.

Day in the Life

You will develop circuitry and embedded software to control high-powered actuators that move our machines (e.g. BLDCs) with sensor feedback (e.g. encoders, cameras, proximity switches). With these control systems, you will then enable machines to perform actions based on guidance from our cloud-based farm operating system via web sockets and APIs. You will work at our flagship farm with on-site labs and fabrication facilities to rapidly prototype your designs.

On a typical day, you will:

  • Work in a small team with mechanical and software engineers to rapidly prototype machines
  • Build electronics to drive motors, move pallets, spin blades, sort produce, and more
  • Collaborate in component selection and integration (servos, sensors, controllers, etc)
  • Design and develop SDKs and components to enable rapid deployment of new automation machinery
  • Engineer, prototype, and oversee the assembly of control systems (PCBs, DIN rail components, and enclosures)
  • Collaborate with internal teams to integrate new systems into the production facility
  • Troubleshoot and repair production systems

Qualifications

  • B.S. degree in Electrical Engineering, or related field
  • 5+ years of full-time work experience with embedded systems
  • Demonstrated experience using schematic capture and PCB layout software
  • Proficient in C/C++ firmware development
  • Working understanding of command-line Linux or similar operating system
  • Experience working with remote APIs (HTTP REST, web sockets, etc.)
  • Experience working with sensors, motors, and other electro-mechanical systems
