908 Devices Inc. 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 significantly smaller and more accessible devices 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 Boston, MA, near the Seaport and has a satellite office in North Carolina and a growing population of remote staff worldwide. 

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 and test of electronic assemblies employed in 908 Devices’ products, test systems, and research platforms.  You’ll work closely with 908’s production staff, engineers, and scientists.
