About Us

We are leading a revolution in measurement devices for chemical and biochemical analysis. 908 Devices has developed an innovative suite of purpose-built handheld and desktop mass spec devices for the point-of-need. Leveraging our proprietary platform technology, we make the extraordinary analytical power of mass spec available in devices that are significantly smaller and more accessible than conventional laboratory instruments. Our devices are used at the point-of-need to interrogate unknown and invisible materials and provide quick, actionable answers to directly address some of the most critical problems in life sciences research, bioprocessing, industrial biotech, forensics and adjacent markets.  We are reimagining where mass spec technology can be used if it is sufficiently small in size, low in cost, and simple to operate.

908 Devices is headquartered in the Boston Seaport, with satellite facilities in the Bay Area and in North Carolina.

Position Summary:

Join our premier engineering team and help us conceive and build remarkable products.  908 Devices embraces bold and inventive thinking so bring your creativity, energy, and imagination.  We think big and enable our staff with contemporary tools, flexibility, and an enthusiastic workplace.

Each of 908 Devices’ products are ambitious in capability. These require state-of-the-art electronics, typically custom designed at 908.  Technologies range from very low-noise analog to complex FPGAs.  The successful candidate will be responsible for the design, test, and integration of sophisticated electronic assemblies employed in 908 Devices’ products, test systems, and research platforms.  You’ll take designs from concept to production and work closely with 908’s production staff, engineers, and scientists.

Key Responsibilities:

·       Systems design and requirements specification.

·       Schematic capture and PCB design.

·       Co-design with software and mechanical engineering staff.

·       NPI-to-Production transition.

·       Regulatory agency testing.

·       Production documentation.

Required Skills:

·       Comprehensive understanding of contemporary electronic technologies.

·       Schematic capture and PCB design (preferably Altium).  

·       Low-noise and low-power analog circuit design.

·       Analog simulation, signal integrity, and noise analysis.

·       Safety and EMC regulatory standards and agency testing.

·       Fluency in English (written and verbal).

·       US citizen or permanent resident.

Additional Skills (preferred but not required)  

·       CPLD/FPGA design (preferably Altera and Verilog).

·       High-performance CPUs, high-speed data interfaces.

·       Digital signal processing, closed loop control systems.

·       High-voltage, wireless, and/or RF design.

·       C/C++/Python coding experience (e.g. device driver and diagnostic code).

Education and Experience:

·       BSEE / MS / PhD in Electrical Engineering.

·       15+ years of relevant experience.
