Our client who launched earlier this year in Arlington, Virginia, was founded to help create next-generation wearable technology that will influence future sports science. By amplifying human ability with their technology, they will provide a fan experience like no other product in the world. They are working to develop for a wide array of technology platforms and frameworks including mobile, web, Internet of Things (IoT), wearables, and embedded devices. As an emerging technology platform, they are enabling universal consumption of innovative wearable technology, capturing unprecedented aspects and live stream via the Wearable Interactive Network: point of view content, eye biometrics, telemetry and related analytical data.

As the company is growing exponentially, they are needing an experienced Product Engineer for a technology leader who enjoys building interactive proof of concepts to help the team to evaluate ideas. There is a need for strong understanding of development and prototyping environments and if you thrive in a highly collaborative start-up culture of rapid iteration, this may be the role for you. As a technologist embedded within the design team, you'll be working on our most advanced prototypes.

What YOU get to DO as a Product Engineer at this emerging technology company

  • You'll get to explore a product from the concept phase to mass production.
  • Develop for a wide array of technology platforms and frameworks including mobile, web, Internet of Things (IoT), wearables, and embedded devices.
  • Rapidly translate design concepts into interactive experience prototypes.
  • Facilitate the design process by making, testing, and iterating.
  • Architect efficient and reusable augmented reality prototype systems.
  • Implement process and pipeline improvements.

What you NEED to SUCCEED in this challenging role

  • Engineering related Degree plus 10+ years of relevant professional experience.
  • Product Management expertise with hardware-based products and involvement with market testing/POC, architecture, design, prototyping, production/manufacturing, testing, regulatory approvals, and documentation.
  • Hardware Design knowledge of cameras for embedded systems, their interfaces, and the hardware and ASICs/SOCs used in processing video streams.  Strongly preferred understanding of lenses and sensors to achieve high-quality images edge to edge is strongly preferred.
  • General electrical engineering participation with things like power supplies, data bus, signals, and RF/EMI design.
  • Familiarity with Video Codecs like H264, H265  and education of  Streaming Protocols like RTMP, RTSP, WEBRTC, HLS.  Experience with video processing techniques (whether in hardware or software) like HRD/WDR, Image Stabilization, and Distortion Correction.
  • Knowledge of Embedded Software like Embedded Linux, driver development, IoT client implementation, IoT device architecture, IoT device security, and network/communication interfaces.
  • Understanding of Wireless signals like 5G, 4G LTE, CBRS, and Wi-Fi – both hardware implementation of modules, antenna selection, performance testing, and software/driver implementation. Experience with Regulatory/FCC aspects of module implementation is strongly preferred. 
  • Expertise with a physical environment, enclosures, board layout, thermodynamics, and safety of product design of embedded wearable devices is a plus!
  • Exposure to developing battery-powered devices, battery selection, custom battery shapes, and battery safety.
  • Integration of devices experience with a back-end cloud environment (IoT devices, etc.) Appreciation of security aspects of IoT devices operating on public networks and experience with video streaming to and/or from the cloud and/or platforms is preferred.

What is it for you?

  • Ground floor opportunity with an amazing breakthrough sports wearable product line.
  • Impact in the design of new technology and work with some of the coolest and most influential names in Sports.
  • Excellent salary range and comprehensive benefits package w/ 401K, competitive PTO, Health, dental, and vision insurance.
