Power Supply Design Engineer
Wanted: Experienced Power Electronics Engineers! Looking for an opportunity to flex your knowledge, learn new tricks, and go home feeling like you’ve made a difference? Arnold Magnetics Corporation (AMC) designs and builds ruggedized power supplies for the defense, aerospace, and energy sectors. That’s right: we power the equipment that keeps us all safe, gets you to grandma’s house, and lights up the room at night. We need YOUR help designing unique solutions, keeping existing product moving forward, and developing the talents of the team. (including yours!)
*** Note: you must be a US Citizen or Permanent Resident ***
Attributes: Positive attitude, desire to learn and teach, hard worker, able to think beyond the technical solution, exceptional English skills both verbal and written (if you also speak Spanish, that’s great!), interest in both new design and sustaining engineering
Location: On-site at our headquarters, 841 Avenida Acaso, Camarillo, CA 93012
What you’ll be doing:
You are a unique breed of engineer. The thrill of creating, the art of design, is in your blood yet you also get a thrill being part of converting a paper design into real, tangible product. You’ve been around the block a few times and have the battle scars to prove it. You know that just because CAD says so, doesn’t mean it is. You never cease being amazed at humans’ ability to thwart poka-yoke, but you keep trying and trying and find yourself with a small smile each time. You’re experienced enough to have a “gut feel” for what will likely work, and still optimistic and open-minded enough that you seek out opportunities to learn from interns and try new tools, techniques, and approaches. You have the confidence to say “I was wrong” and “Will you help me?”
As a Senior Electrical Engineer, you’ll be designing Mil-Spec power supplies to meet certain performance and test criteria. You’ll be supporting legacy product and trying to make sense of documentation from ages ago. You’ll be a “jack of all trades, master of some” engineer who is the go-to resource for tough technical challenges. You will write eloquent technical reports and review/edit those of your colleagues. Sometimes you’ll be in the lab with a soldering iron in one hand and an oscilloscope in the other. Sometimes you’ll be nose-to-your-computer screen drawing a schematic. Often you’ll be on a teleconference with customers or suppliers. You’ll need to be able to move around in tight spaces, gather information, walk up/down a flight of stairs several times daily, and occasionally lift/carry 25 lbs all without interrupting the flow of production.
The best part about this job is that you’ll be part of actually producing something. Not much is made in the USA anymore, so this is a unique opportunity. The best Sr Electrical Engineers are those who understand the product lifecycle from concept through EOL and can, if needed, skillfully and enthusiastically thrust themselves into any phase to contribute positively to the overall effort!
