Senior Electrical Engineer

At ChefSteps we’re frustrated by the lack of innovation in the kitchen. Even the most basic appliances haven't changed in any meaningful way in years, and great ideas are being overlooked. So we're jumping in to create appliances that enthusiastic cooks want.

You could play a key role in making that vision a reality. See this blog post for some of the areas we are working on.

We're looking for an experienced electrical engineer with a proven track record of designing and shipping high-volume consumer electronics products. In this role you will work to conceive, design, evaluate, and produce new types of kitchen tools. You’ll also be expected to have experience working with contract manufactures to produce prototype and production hardware. 


  • Demonstrated start-to-finish design skills with industry-standard CAD/EDA tools (Altium Designer experience strongly preferred), including schematic entry, PCB layout, component definition, and CAD library management
  • Hands-on electronics prototyping experience, including soldering and rework of fine-pitch SMT components
  • Strong lab skills, including the use of common test and measurement equipment (oscilloscopes, logic analyzers, etc.) to debug complex electronic circuits
  • Experience with embedded systems design and strong knowledge of common digital communication interfaces (USB, SPI, I2C)
  • Experience working directly on-site with contract manufacturers
  • Ability to think and work across disciplines
  • Knowledgable in C/C++ firmware development
  • A proven track record of designing and shipping high-volume consumer electronics products

Bonus Points

  • High speed video interfaces (HDMI, Display Port, LVDS, MIPI)
  • Regulatory compliance testing (e.g. FCC/CE/UL)
  • Experience working with various sensors
  • RF/wireless circuit design, including antenna design
  • Digital Signal Processing (DSP)
  • Experience working with BLDC motors
  • Working knowledge of ultrasonics
