Come join our team!


The Instrumentation Systems Engineer position is a high-visibility role inside Teradyne’s Semiconductor Test Division. Systems Engineers work with marketing, applications, sales, and engineering teams to define the future of automated test equipment (ATE) that best addresses our customers’ upcoming needs.  In this role you will be a member of an interdisciplinary systems engineering team responsible for the development of next-generation, high-power, precision instrumentation. DC instruments at Teradyne like Device Power Supplies and VIs are generally very dense (>100 channels per instrument), and each optimizes the channel circuitry to meet the given end market needs.  Device Power Supplies (DPS) are usually low voltage, high current designs that typically optimize load transient response, voltage accuracy, and power efficiency.  VIs can be high voltage (>100V), range from low to high current (>10A), and incorporate many possible enhancements depending on the market need: galvanic isolation, precision measure and force, time measurement, ultra-low leakage, etc. 

Basic Qualifications & Skills

Our ideal candidate will have a broad set of interests, experience, and skills, with an enthusiasm for learning and problem solving. You should have as many of the following as possible:
•    10 years of engineering experience with at least 5 years leading product definition in a system engineering or technical leadership role.
•    Understanding of state-of-the-art technology and best-practices for designing

o    Analog, precision, and power circuits
o    Mixed-signal systems
o    Digital signal processing and control algorithms

•    Experience designing very high voltage and high current electronic systems a plus.
•    Experience in the semiconductor industry and test engineering is a plus.
•    Strong presentation and communication skills
•    Ability to travel domestically and internationally up to 10-15% of the time 


  •     Bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering (BSEE) or equivalent field of study OR equivalent work experience.
