Oxide is seeking PCB designers to join us in building the next generation of rack-scale, fully-integrated machines.

As a PCB designer working at Oxide, you will:

  • Work alongside hardware engineers throughout every step of the design process from prototypes through mass production
  • Determine board stackups, layout components, and perform routing of complex mixed-signal designs
  • Maintain our component library, including symbol and footprint generation, based on datasheets
  • Collaborate with PCB suppliers to improve  design rules, constraints, testability, and manufacturability
  • Stay up to date on PCB design tools and strategies

These responsibilities are just a starting place! We’re a small company, we don’t have rigid roles, and we have a lot to do – we can help you grow wherever your interests take you.

You will thrive in this role if you:

  • Have experience routing everything from high speed busses to power supplies to dense BGAs
  • Are proficient in the Allegro PCB software suite
  • Believe in fully documenting your ideas
  • Enjoy reading the documentation produced by others
  • Get excited about things and dig really deep into them
  • Believe in scripting and automating as much as possible
  • Don’t mind coworkers getting really excited about decades-old computer front panels

If you don’t meet 100% of these qualifications you should still seriously consider applying! We all come from different backgrounds with different skills.

Life at Oxide

We are very explicit about our values, and they can be seen in daily life at Oxide, for example:

  • Our rigor means we enjoy and take pride in the craft of engineering.
  • Our urgency means that we are not above the judicious short-cut.
  • Our versatility is reflected in our greatest strength: the breadth of our team.
  • Our transparency can be seen in our consensus-driven RFD process.
  • Our responsibility means that we both lead and follow: we have our own domains, but we also help others on their parts.
  • Our curiosity shows in our insatiable desire to learn – and our empathy in our love of teaching others.
  • Our humor is a big part of our daily lives: we are inveterate wise-crackers whose video meetings spill into simultaneous text chat.

Our values also manifest themselves in our benefits:

  • Everyone makes $180,250, regardless of location.
  • We offer the best health insurance we could find: medical PPO plan, dental, and vision that are 100% covered for both employees and dependents.
  • We are very supportive of remote work. More than half of our team is outside of the San Francisco Bay Area; our only requirement is working hours with a significant overlap with Pacific Time.
  • Our families and lives outside of our jobs are very important to us; our schedules are flexible to reflect and support that.
