A master’s degree in Electrical or Electronics Engineering or a relevant field; or equivalent experience and/or achievements that demonstrate the knowledge, skills and ability as determined by the hiring manager
At least (5) years of experience designing and/or delivering electrical circuits – for example analog design, FPGA- or microcontroller-based digital design, printed circuit board design, and/or power/high-voltage design
Applicants chosen for an interview will be asked to provide an overview briefing of an example that illustrates their design experience
The ability to acquire and maintain a DOE Q-level security clearance
Qualifications We Desire:
Technical project management, technical leadership experience, or experience as a principal investigator of research & development efforts
Experience with high voltage electronics or experience with digital systems
Experience with design, development, production or surveillance in nuclear deterrence or department of defense mission spaces
Experience with testing and troubleshooting of electrical designs

About Our Team:
The Firing & Embedded Systems group 07620 is a recognized leader in realizing safe, secure, and reliable products. We research, design, develop, and deliver highly reliable, trusted systems and high consequence hardware and software products to serve our National Security customers today, tomorrow, and always. Our technical backgrounds are diverse. Some of us have spent years focusing on the fine details of particular technologies and are recognized as nation-level experts. Some of us are generalists and support multiple projects, keeping things connected and developing new skills. Our teams are comprised of specialists and generalists working together, and it is easy to shift between projects and technical roles over time. If this environment sounds appealing, we'd like to meet you.
This posting will be open for application submissions for a minimum of seven (7) calendar days, including the ‘posting date’. Sandia reserves the right to extend the posting date at any time.
Sandia is required by DOE to conduct a pre-employment drug test and background review that includes checks of personal references, credit, law enforcement records, and employment/education verifications. Applicants for employment need to be able to obtain and maintain a DOE Q-level security clearance, which requires U.S. citizenship. If you hold more than one citizenship (i.e., of the U.S. and another country), your ability to obtain a security clearance may be impacted.
Applicants offered employment with Sandia are subject to a federal background investigation to meet the requirements for access to classified information or matter if the duties of the position require a DOE security clearance. Substance abuse or illegal drug use, falsification of information, criminal activity, serious misconduct or other indicators of untrustworthiness can cause a clearance to be denied or terminated by DOE, resulting in the inability to perform the duties assigned and subsequent termination of employment.
All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, age, disability, or veteran status and any other protected class under state or federal law.
NNSA Requirements for MedPEDs:
If you have a Medical Portable Electronic Device (MedPED), such as a pacemaker, defibrillator, drug-releasing pump, hearing aids, or diagnostic equipment and other equipment for measuring, monitoring, and recording body functions such as heartbeat and brain waves, if employed by Sandia National Laboratories you may be required to comply with NNSA security requirements for MedPEDs.
If you have a MedPED and you are selected for an on-site interview at Sandia National Laboratories, there may be additional steps necessary to ensure compliance with NNSA security requirements prior to the interview date.
