A typical day in the hangar:

  • Start with an engineering scrum meeting
  • Be involved with some of the design process to create a motor-driven test stand, including discussion on the intended function as well as the components that may be used in the build
  • Research parts for the test stand that are commercially available
  • Create wiring harnesses, which may involve crimping of connectors and/or soldering
  • Investigation of a motor driver board that is not communicating. Use of the oscilloscope and associated schematics/architecture documentation for troubleshooting.

At Horizon, we believe that a culture of respect and inclusion is the road to creativity, innovation, understanding and success. The machines we build don’t discriminate; nor do we.

Please submit a cover letter and resumé, outlining why you are the right fit for us, and we will contact you for an interview. We look forward to hearing from you.
