Senior Electromagnetics Engineer

Resonant Link

Location:

Type: Full Time

Education: No Ed Requirements

Experience: 3 - 5 Years

Resonant Link accelerates electrification by Powering Fleets While They Work, integrating our fast wireless chargers into the stops that already exist during fleet operation (think pick stations for robots or loading docks for forklifts). Our world-class team has quadrupled in less than a year to power mission-critical applications for multiple Fortune 500 companies and government agencies.

You will join Resonant Link’s world-class electromagnetics team in the design and development of electromagnetic coils for our wireless chargers. We are looking for a motivated scientist or engineer to run technical projects and work with our team on the cutting edge of the field. Your primary responsibilities will be design, construction and validation of complex passive networks and the associated electromagnetic components. You will perform analysis and electromagnetic simulations to assess feasibility across applications and deliver optimized designs of Resonant Link’s best-in-class wireless charging coils.

On an average day, you’ll…

  • Make key architectural decisions for high-performance electromagnetic systems that underpin wireless chargers for the world’s most demanding applications.
  • Assess feasibility of wireless power systems for new applications.
  • Design, build and test ultra-low-loss resonant tanks, inductors and transformers for frequencies ranging from 100s of kHz into the MHz range.
  • Modeling (including analytical solutions, 2D, and 3D simulations) the performance of wireless power transfer systems and electromagnetic components for power converters.
  • Work closely with our power electronics and mechanical teams to converge on integration solutions for multiple subsystems.
  • Perform component and product-level testing on latest prototypes.
  • Source and collaborate with domestic and overseas suppliers.

The team you’ll be joining:

The electromagnetics team, staffed by engineers from the world’s foremost power electronics and magnetics laboratories, operates at the critical juncture in the development of wireless chargers. We are critically reliant on our team members’ ownership, creativity, technical rigor, and collaboration to deliver on our first-of-their-kind magnetics and power electronics. Our greater engineering team includes electrical, mechanical, embedded, and electromagnetics engineers with PhDs from Berkeley, Dartmouth, ETH Zurich, Michigan, and Stanford and experience at Tesla, Apple, iRobot, and Harvard Medical School. You will learn from world-class experts inside and outside the organization, with technical leaders and partners engaged and accessible every week at Resonant Link.

Requirements

  • Strong physics and/or electromagnetics background (MSc/PhD in Physics or EE).
  • Preferred relevant experience, i.e.:
    1. Electromagnetics simulation (2D, 3D, Maxwell, HFSS, etc.).
    2. Power magnetic design experience preferred (transformers, inductors, etc.)
    3. Solid understanding of power electronics systems.
  • Also consider experience in RF, microwave, antenna, and/or electric machine design.
  • Must have up-to-date vaccinations for COVID-19 and use a mask when working on-site or attending company-sponsored events (mask requirement subject to change as the COVID-19 pandemic evolves)

Who we’re looking for:

  • You have an appetite to continuously learn new things to overcome significant technical obstacles.
  • You are an independent problem solver excited to tackle challenges at the boundary between scientific innovation and productization.
  • You find the experience of converting ideas into reality rewarding.
  • You are motivated by the opportunity to work at a dynamic startup company where your contributions will have an outsized impact on our products, customers, and culture.
  • Role is remote and location is flexible – with preference for candidates located in or around the Burlington, VT region.
    • If candidate is fully remote, up to 20% travel OR at least once per quarter to our Burlington lab is required
  • You’re an empathetic, collaborative, respectful, and honest team member – you know together is always better!
