We need your creativity and passion to help design and develop the most efficient, flexible servo controller on the market. You will be contributing to all phases of product development, from design to manufacturing. Built on our history of physics-hacking algorithms, you will work closely with our control performance and customer applications teams to improve the behavior of our control strategies and squeeze every last drop of processing power out of our unique multicore SoC.
