As a hardware design engineer, you’d be working closely with our firmware, software and mechanical design groups as a multidisciplinary team focusing on robotics and battery powered systems.

A typical day on the electrical team at Intero can involve working with Altium and SPICE, designing new robotics systems with your colleagues, assembling the prototype of your new design, running tests in the laboratory or engineering shop, driving a 20-foot long and 1500lbs robot, researching new technologies, creating documents to help others understand what you’ve done, and/or writing some code. If any of those things sound interesting to you: read on!


  • Analog & Digital Circuit design, schematic capture, and PCB layout using Altium Designer
  • Circuit simulation, prototyping and testing using typical lab tools and analysis software
  • Documentation of electrical designs, testing and assembly procedures
  • Troubleshooting and root-cause analysis of issues in electrical systems
  • Electrical hardware assembly design and manufacturing
  • Design for manufacture and testing; DFX
  • Peripheral Responsibilities
  • Depending on available skills a candidate would also have opportunities to work on the following more specific aspects of a project:
  • Python/Matlab scripting for simulation and scripted testing of robot modules
  • Assembly, C/C++ embedded programming targeting Atmel & ARM devices

  • Digital and Analog design, various hardware communication protocols (I2C, TWI, SPI, CAN, Ethernet, PCIe, etc.)
  • Battery powered systems (Li-ion, Li-polymer)
  • Brushless DC Motor systems
  • Prototyping & troubleshooting skills, e.g., laboratory tools, soldering, etc.
  • Strong communication and technical writing skills
  • Solid self-discipline and the ability to work both independently and within a team
  • An inquisitive mentality: the desire to tinker and learn through experience

Considered Assets

  • Experience with Python, Matlab, or other scripting languages
  • Embedded C or Assembly programming experience
