About the role

JITX is a way to design circuit boards faster, better, and with fewer errors. Instead of manually drafting and reviewing one-off designs, write code to generate designs programmatically. Our AI-powered solvers handle the low-level details, and make your engineering work massively reusable. Our vision at JITX is to automate hardware design for the benefit of science and the welfare of humanity. JITX is a team that is building next generation software to help companies design better electronics. Dedicated to solving difficult problems with huge impact, our first step is to automate circuit board design.

The ideal candidate would be an Application Engineer eager to be part of a growing team, shaping the future of electronics. As an Application Engineer you would be using our tool to develop compelling designs featured in social media and marketing content, as well as advising the development team on how to best improve the tool. Your goal would be to bring new users up to speed in onboarding as quickly as possible, guiding them through the newest features, and ideas of how to leverage JITX in building their most useful design.
