Other essential functions include:



  • Design test boards and circuit modifications to test design improvements


  • Find technical root cause and suggest corrective action for given problems using sound problem solving techniques


  • Source and analyze appropriate components to meet electrical engineering design needs


  • Work with the factory team to understand design impacts on manufacturability


  • Collaborate and add value through participation in design reviews, providing comments and suggestions on electrical engineering design aspects


  • Provide reliable solutions to a variety of problems using sound problem solving techniques


  • Estimate level of effort, evaluate new options of similar technology, offer suggestions to improve processes, and provide comments on some electrical design aspects


  • Serve as a mentor to less experienced design engineers (Design Engineer 1)
