Principal System Architect, Engineering

California, United States · Engineering


uBeam is seeking a hands-on, eager, and experienced candidate with a proven track record, with a physics or EE background, to perform engineering tasks related to system design, system integration, and system-level specifications; to include end-to-end systems architecture. This will involve modeling full systems, including acoustic and electronic simulation, to trade-off and optimize design characteristics to achieve the overall system goal.

The Principal System Architect is the key person to set system-level technical strategy across the enterprise as well as for specific projects, define and create system level block diagrams. Works constructively with lead engineers in the acoustics and hardware/software teams to bridge the gap between the two groups and define the overall architecture. Understands and owns the interfaces, interconnections, and design attributes that cross functional blocks. Set guidelines to which systems must conform, with allowable variances to allow addition/changes to architecture. May not be the architect in any specific functional block, but will oversee all areas of interaction (includes software, firmware, hardware, signal routing, diagnostics, and testing).

This candidate will own the success of the overall system architecture in achieving the project goals. Works with project manager and collaborates with all team functions, to plan and execute all system integration milestones.

The Principal System Architect must have the ability to balance more than one project at a time, and/or project related activities. Must be highly experienced in project management, people management, and timelines; in relationship to overall company goals.

This candidate will report directly to the Senior Vice President of Engineering/CTO. We are looking for a candidate who not only has the technical skills to contribute to the development of uBeam’s technology but also has the leadership experience required to influence (without direct authority) an extremely talented and driven team.
