Senior Electronics Engineer

Yujin Robot's Innovation Team is looking for an experienced and passionate senior electronics engineer with product development experience in robotics, embedded devices, mobile phones, the automotive industry or a similar technology field. You will provide input to the overall design of Yujin Robot's future prototypes and products, be responsible for the technical design and specification of the robot's electronic system and develop individual electronic components.

The recently formed Innovation Team is a small, highly motivated and multinational group with a focus on turning the promise of the future into Yujin Robot's products of tomorrow. Since robots are complex electronic systems, in which various sensors, actuators, computers, network devices and power supplies need to work together, the engineer we seek does not need to be an expert in each related field, but needs to understand enough to build a reliable system. Hence, we are looking for a generalist, rather than a specialist. Since we aim to turn our prototypes into products, experience in product development is crucial. You will be the bridge to our electronics suppliers and development partners and also work closely with Yujin Robot's other electronic engineers to solve day-to-day challenges. Driving the electronics development for our prototypes and products will require you to be comfortable with defining the technical design and specification for the overall electronic system as well as individual components. The latter also includes logic and circuit design. Electronic component development will also require you being experienced with outsourcing design work.

You will be free to do things your own way, however this will require you to be highly self-organised while still being able to ride with the team. We offer flexible working hours, good payment and enough off-time to recharge in a highly creative and dynamic workplace.

Key Roles & Responsibilities
- Design and technical specification of the robot's electronics system
- Logic and circuit design of electronic components
- Management of outsourcing jobs
- Collaboration with Yujin Robot's electronics team, external suppliers and development partners

- Minimum 5 years experience in product development
- Minimum bachelor's degree or equivalent
- Expert/mother tongue Korean and professional English
- Experience in outsourcing design work
- Experience with ORCAD or similar tools
- Highly self-organised and natural team worker
- Energetic and passionate

- Experience in power supply design
- C/C++ firmware programming
- Experience in the robotics field

If you feel ready to join our team, write to, tell us why you are right for the job (cover letter, max. 1 page) and don't forget to attach your CV (max. 2 pages). All application material needs to be submitted as a PDF. We are looking forward to hearing from you!
