Some of your primary focus points will be:  

  • Centered around electronics including programming.
  • Implementing PCBA and module test for our new generations of products. You will use your technical and personal skills to analyze, define, implement, test and release new versions of test solutions based on NI TestStand and NI LabVIEW.

What do we expect from you?

We image that your educational background is within engineering (mechanics, mechatronics, electronics, SW). No matter whether you have recently graduated or already have some years of experience, we welcome your application.
