Juniper Networks is a leading provider of networking hardware and systems, headquartered in Sunnyvale, CA.
Juniper has an immediate need at its Sunnyvale, CA location for a Senior level Power Design Engineer. This position reports to the Manager of Power Systems Development, a subgroup of Juniper's System Technologies department. The main objective of this group is to apply principles of Electrical Engineering and related disciplines in developing practical Power solutions to the very demanding requirements for the full range of Juniper products, which includes both Front End and Board Mount Power technologies.
The selected candidate will be an Individual Contributor within the Power Systems Development team. Assignments will be at the direction of the Power Systems Development Manager.
Typical Board Mount Power activities will include definition of design requirements, selection of critical components, design/simulation/schematic capture of power circuit blocks and coordination with the Board Level and PCB Layout Engineers, and subsequent bring-up and characterization testing of the completed prototype design and introduction to Manufacturing. Similarly, the Front End Power System development process involves System Level Conceptualization, Power Supply Module Functional Specification, and the full cycle of engineering development with Juniper Supplier(s), including prototype testing, system integration, documentation and Manufacturing support. Both Board Mount and Front End Power development responsibilities include preparing and/or reviewing test plans and supervising tests as well as in leading the Technical Peer Review of ones work as well as participating in that of other team members. As a Senior Level Individual Contributor, this position will also include Leadership activities such as Mentoring less experienced members of the Power Engineering Team, developing new Technology initiatives within the group, and participating in the Juniper Patent application process.
Qualified candidates should have a minimum of 12 years related Power Design Engineering experience, with BSEE degree minimum and MSEE being a plus. Solid experience with schematic capture and simulation tools (including SPICE) is essential, and as well as practical background with PCB Layout tools and techniques; familiarity with power development CAD tools such as Cadence Sigrity PowerDC also important. Working knowledge of communication interfaces such as I2C/PMBus as well as firmware design experience are highly desirable.
Extensive experience with both basic and power related Electronic Lab Equipment and test methods is required.
Strong communication skills, both verbal and written, are an important requirement for this position. Juniper Power Design Team members work in a highly cross-functional, fast paced environment in partnership with other disciplines such as Mechanical, Thermal, Compliance and System Design Engineers, as well as Program Managers and a variety of external suppliers.
Juniper Networks offers competitive compensation commensurate with experience and capability, along with an excellent benefits package, to qualified Candidates.
