Sr. Electronics Engineer

Montreal, Québec, Canada – Full Time

Immersion’s haptic technology brings the power of touch to billions of devices around the world. With touch, we make people’s digital lives more personal, vivid, and meaningful. Headquartered in San Jose, we work with leading mobile, gaming, wearable, AR/VR, and automotive companies to enhance and revolutionize how users interact with their devices and machine interfaces.

More than ever before, haptics is at the forefront of emerging technologies poised to transform the world. Over 3 billion devices have shipped with our software and IP and we’ve only just begun to tap into the possibilities offered by touch.

We’re a small team and in the early stages of achieving our vision. Come help us lead the haptics revolution.

What we’re looking for:

Immersion is seeking a Senior Electronics Engineer who is excited to incorporate the sense of touch into human-computer interfaces. The successful candidate will be involved in the ideation, design, development, and implementation of electronic elements in our haptic interfaces in ground-breaking areas like virtual/augmented reality, mobile devices, tactile internet, and automotive. The Senior Electronics Engineer will report to the VP of R&D, who oversees and supervises all development and innovation efforts in the company.

The successful candidate must have proven experience in hands-on design of embedded systems electronics for medium and high-volume consumer products.  The candidate must have direct experience with digital electronics including 8, 16, and 32bit microcontrollers; experience designing power electronics is also highly desirable.  The ideal candidate will have a strong documented record of taking electronic designs with small- to mid-size volumes from concept to production.  Familiarity with the unique challenges designing for larger volume, low-cost applications, including tolerance analysis, failure analysis, and critical component identification is highly desirable.  This position requires both the ability to work independently and to make collaborative, creative contributions within a project group. It also requires interaction with several other teams beyond the advanced development team, including user experience (UX) and Research groups.

  • Work closely with electromechanical and firmware engineers
  • Support research activities as needed
  • Develop significant specialized knowledge in several areas of haptics
  • Develop intellectual property of all kinds, including contributing to patent applications
  • Create reference designs related to haptic interfaces
  • Travel abroad as needed to present your work

Candidate Expectations:

  • BSEE or equivalent, MS preferred
