As an electrical engineer in Agilent’s Mass Spectrometry
Division, you will join a multidisciplinary R&D team developing
high-resolution mass spectrometers coupled to liquid- and
gas-chromatography systems (LC/MS and GC/MS instruments) with
applications ranging from food safety to biopharma research.
Your work will span the product development lifecycle, with a
primary focus on designing, building, and testing circuits based on
models and simulations. You’ll also work with scientists and
engineers to characterize prototype hardware and ensure that the
final designs meet thorough quality standards and pass regulatory
compliance testing. You’ll work with the Manufacturing team to ramp
up production and rapidly solve issues as they arise, and you’ll
support released products with continued improvements in
collaboration with Product Support and Field Service Engineers.
The ideal candidate will be adept with circuit design and
simulation tools and have experience with high voltage RF & DC
supplies. Knowledge of electron/ion optics including charged
particle detection is preferred, and familiarity with vacuum
systems is a plus. Good organizational and communication skills are
critical, as is a "can-do", collaborative attitude focused on team
success. You must also be capable of working independently, as well
as creating, tracking, and meeting schedules and development
Design analog, digital, and mixed signal printed circuit
assemblies (PCAs) including high voltage amplifiers or power
Perform circuit simulations, create schematics, and lay out
printed circuit boards (PCBs).
Work with an interdisciplinary engineering team to incorporate
your designs into complete instruments, while ensuring
compatibility with other modules, system control, and onboard
Perform verification testing on initial prototypes and complete
systems to demonstrate instrument performance and regulatory
compliance until the successful transition to manufacturing.
Troubleshoot and analyze technical issues in depth to understand
core problems and provide sound solutions.
Create documentation (e.g. block diagrams, theory of operations,
simulation and test results) at each phase of product
