Volta Labs is developing fluidic solution to enable complex workflows in genomics and synthetic biology. Founded in 2018 by students from the MIT Media Lab, Volta Labs develops mixed signal fluidic circuits by borrowing semiconductor manufacturing methods. Our solution will enable gaining new insights about markers for diseases and mutations in genes. Ultimately our goal is to bring the precision of digital electronics to develop new therapeutics and drugs faster.

ELECTRICAL/SYSTEMS ENGINEER

Cambridge, MA. R&D Full-time.

Volta Labs is looking for an electrical engineer willing to work in a fast-paced startup environment. The ability to work in a cross-disciplinary team with analog/digital designers, mechanical engineers, material scientists, chemists and biologists is pivotal to turn Volta's vision to a market ready product.

The Job:

  • Design and build analog/digital circuits, power conversion, front end for sensors and capacitive sensing, micro-controllers
  • Schematic entry and PCB layout design (preferably with Altium Designer)
  • PCB layout to create low noise, highly reliable boards
  • Test and bring up of new PCBs
  • Troubleshooting with oscilloscopes, logic analyzers and other test equipment
  • Develop firmware for micro-controllers

You (must have):

  • 2-5 years hardware development experience
  • Experience designing production quality electronics or systems level engineering experience 
  • Well rounded knowledge of mixed signal design with the ability to specify components and sub-assemblies
  • Experience designing power conversion circuits and low noise systems
  • Familiarity with EMI/EMC designs
  • Proficiency with Altium Designer or similar CAD/CAE tools
  • Are hands-on and willing to cross discipline boundaries to solve a problem

You (nice to have):

  • BSEE/MSEE degree or equivalent
  • Deep understanding of various PCB fabrication methods is a plus 
  • Understanding of electromagnetism theory
