About our group
The Test Platform Design group resides within the Recording Head Technology organization and is charged with specifying, staging, co-developing and qualifying next-generation test systems for recording head and hard disk drive development. Devices and systems under test include magnetic read/write heads and media, the tribology of the head/disk interface, and the adjacent parts of the recording subsystem including preamplifiers and read/write communications channels. Job responsibilities include interfacing with design and process owners to understand test system design requirements and partnering with equipment developers to specify, develop and qualify quasi-static and dynamic test system solutions.
About the role – you will:
Design, develop, integrate, and qualify new test platforms
Design, develop, integrate, and qualify new test capabilities
Develop bench capabilities and perform bench FA
Analyze, summarize, present and communicate results and conclusions
Bachelor’s Degree required, Master’s degree preferred in Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering or Mechanical Engineering with 0-2 years of experience.
The ideal candidate will have a knowledge base and skillset that blends the following: analog and digital circuit design, RF circuit board layout design, digital communications channels and signal processing, physical (magnetic, optical, electrical, and mechanical) properties of thin film materials and fabricated nano-devices, industrial automation and control systems, and measurement systems analysis.
