The role of this position will reporting into an Obeya Room Project Manager, this professional will
design and analyze electrical components and subsystems of new products related to x-ray
measurement devices. The individual will provide a critical role in developing engineering
specifications from customer and regulatory requirements. The professional will apply knowledge of
electrical engineering principles and techniques to model, design, specify, and/or verify circuits and
subsystems that reliably achieve functional requirements and quantitative specifications. In addition,
this individual will also provide skilled support to technicians and scientists in manufacturing and in
R&D groups.

 Participate in developing specifications of new products through communications with
product managers.
 Design, modifies, develops, and implements platforms, products, and test utilities for
customer or internal use.
 Understand and document customer, regulatory and safety requirements for new products
