Job Description

Lumotive’s optical semiconductors are enabling Lidar 2.0 for consumer, mobility, and industrial markets. The company’s Light Control Metasurface (LCM™) optical semiconductors utilize revolutionary beam-steering technology to deliver an unprecedented combination of best-in-class performance, cost, reliability, and size. Lumotive’s LCMs enable the industry’s first software-defined lidar with advanced perception capabilities.

The Principal Electrical Engineer plays a key role in a small cross functional team designing the next generation of lidar solutions for automotive, industrial and consumer applications. You will collaboratively define system level requirements and functional specs, then translate those requirements to the hardware design. You will be responsible for analog and mixed signal circuit design, schematic capture, board layout, component selection, design validation, and prototype bring-up. The candidate must have excellent interpersonal skills with the ability to communicate effectively across functional units and be comfortable taking hands-on approaches to rapidly build and validate new designs.


  • Own all aspects of electrical system designs to achieve performance and quality for low-cost, high-volume 3D sensing applications

  • Own electrical test and prototyping infrastructure and equipment
  • Own full testing and qualification of PCBs to meet industry standards
  • Own selection and direction of domestic and overseas contractors and suppliers


  • Have a valid work permit to work in Canada
  • Located in Vancouver or have a plan to be in Vancouver in next 30 days
  • Bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering.
  • A Masters or PhD preferred
  • Minimum 10 years industry experience or 5 years with advanced degree
  • Design proficiency in Altium Designer (experience with Altium 365 a plus)
  • DC/DC switching power supply design (low noise, isolation from sensitive circuits)
  • Experience designing high speed, mixed-signal PCBA
  • Experience with high-speed differential interfaces: MIPI CSI 2, LVDS, LVPECL; Serial data interfaces: SPI, I2C, UART; High speed data interfaces: Gigabit Ethernet, PCIe
  • RF experience or experience in related technologies (radar, lidar, etc.) desired
