Applications engineer (EE)

Berkeley, CA. Electrical engineering.

Full time or Part time.


JITX makes it easier to invent electronics. 

Our future is one where inventors save lives with new medical devices, make roads safer with self driving cars, and perform dangerous or impossible tasks with robotics. That world remains beyond the horizon because invention is bottlenecked by circuit board design. We spend our time grinding out, reviewing, and revising low-level designs, because if we slip up and miss something, our hardware won’t work. Trivial mistakes halt development and kill companies. Design complexity is growing and we need to deliver on shorter schedules, but circuit board design isn’t keeping pace with the speed of our imagination and creativity.

Rather than manually drawing schematics and and reviewing layouts, JITX lets you write code to automatically generate and verify circuit board designs. 

Now we can bring all the power of software development to hardware design. Instead of a one-off schematic, or layout, or design review, we turn engineering knowledge into code that can be reused thousands of times without error, by anyone you choose to share it with. We can actually collaborate. Design reviews and checks are automated, so we always know if our design is going to work. We are freed from low-level details, so we can design faster, innovate on what matters, do our best work, and build things we didn’t dream were possible.

Located in Berkeley, CA, JITX is a profitable seed-stage startup, backed by Sequoia Capital and Y Combinator. We’re building the tool that engineers have wanted for a long time. Come help us do it!

The Role

We are looking for an electrical engineer to join our growing team. We build design tools for software defined electronics; our users generate circuit board designs programmatically instead of designing them by hand. As an electrical engineer, you would be using our tool to develop real designs, and advising the software development team on how to best improve the tool.

Day to day, you would be using our software to build cool and compelling designs. You would help our new users come up to speed quickly, and come up with applications that we can share with the world.

Here are some examples of things you would do with us:

  • Use our tools to design circuit boards that push the capabilities of our software
  • Invent new design patterns for automating electrical engineering using code
  • Implement generators that solve local EE problems like circuit protection, or DDR4 implementation
  • Advise our customers on how to solve their problems with our tool
  • Develop onboarding flows for new users

You would likely do well in this role if you:

  • Are excited about turning electrical engineering practice into reusable code
  • Have worked on teams shipping impressive hardware products
  • Like working as part of a team with diverse expertise. We’re looking for EEs who can talk to compiler engineers :)
