Menlo Micro has reinvented one of the most fundamental building blocks of electronic systems – the electronic switch. Menlo Micro’s technology creates a new switch category that eliminates compromises and tradeoffs by combining the benefits of electromechanical and solid-state switches into the best of both worlds with its “Ideal Switch.”
Are you interested in playing a critical, impactful role and work with top electronic systems talent at an exciting startup backed by industry leaders? Do you want to help create truly disruptive and unique products that have the ability to change markets? If you answered yes to both, this may be your opportunity to have a significant impact at a cutting-edge startup with industry-leading technology that will drive electronic systems innovation across a diverse range of industries.
You will be an integral member of the New Technology Introduction (NTI) team and have responsibilities for building a new class of power electronic technology (the Ideal Switch) and drive its technology development for device performance, device reliability and integrated electronic system architecture. This is a unique role that will be responsible for taking MEMS ohmic switches into the power switching space and transition the technology from Watts to Kilowatts.
The core aspect of this role is to establish the core device electrical characterization infrastructure for performance, accelerated life and reliability characterization and drive device level and state of art power switching system architectural improvements through root cause failure analysis. This role will combine power device expertise with power electronic system architectures to develop and deliver a new class of relays and power switching systems combining the benefits of both solid state and mechanical relay technology. You will report to the Chief Technology Officer and work within a fast paced and energetic Technology team as well as work cross functionally with the Operations, Product Development, Quality and Applications/Marketing teams.
This position is responsible for providing the technical and strategic execution to bring a new class of power electronic technology (the Ideal Switch) into the Power IoT markets. This includes the technical ownership to drive improvements in the device electrical performance and reliability through electrical test and failure mode analysis, the technical ownership of the power switching system architecture as well as the establishment and ownership of key external partnerships. Also critical to this role is the ownership and the execution of Menlo’s Power Switch technology roadmap that will both incubate and keep Menlo’s Power technologies at the leading edge.
