Job Description

Executive Summary:  Senior Hardware Engineer 

The Internet of Things starts with Things. The transformational benefits promised by IoT and technologies like artificial intelligence, machine learning, and deep analytics will not be realized unless and until Things themselves are made more intelligent and better connected. In support of our growth as a leading IoT Solutions Accelerator, Mesh Systems seeks to hire a Senior Hardware Engineer to join our team. In this role, you will be a member of our cohesive IoT solutions team working in a modern agile environment. You and your colleagues will design, develop, assemble, test, troubleshoot, and deliver next-generation hardware components as a critical part of end-to-end IoT Solutions, from NTI to NPD to Sustaining.  Join us for this opportunity to combine your creativity, passion, and skills for building high-quality embedded systems while working alongside acknowledged experts in the field and some of the best-known and respected brands in the world!

This is a hybrid position with both work from home/in-office, and work will be based out of our Things Lab & HQ in Indianapolis, IN (specifically Carmel, IN) or Innovation Center in Appleton, WI, reporting director to Director of Things Engineering.
