Hi, We're Seek Thermal.

Join us on our mission to make thermal imaging a part of everyday life!
At Seek, you'll get to work with the world-class engineers that pioneered the technology, and now they're building an organization that's built on that same pioneering spirit...but we can't do it alone. We want your ideas, your enthusiasm, and your passion to help us make thermal imaging a part of everyday life, for everyone.

We love where we work, and so can you.

What We're Looking For

We are looking for a Sr. Systems Engineer to conceptualize, design, develop, test, validate, and support system solutions for commercial thermal imaging products. As a system engineer, you will be responsible for leading the design and development of products that fulfill customer, manufacturing, market, and regulatory compliance requirements. You will work closely with sales, marketing product management, engineering development, and production teams throughout the product life cycle process. The Sr. Systems Engineer will report directly into the Director of Hardware Engineering.

What You'll Do

--- The Sr. Systems Engineer will define detailed product and component level specifications for thermal imaging products, decomposed into hardware, software, compliance, reliability, and manufacturability sub-requirements.

--- Evaluate alternative design concepts by performing analysis, modeling, and technical trade off studies.

--- Oversee all product design activities from system to sub-level components.

--- Develop test plans and methodologies to objectively verify performance against requirements.

--- Prepare product documentation to support new product introduction.

--- Provide sustaining support for existing product lines. Recommend, where appropriate, design changes.

--- Document project decisions and provide appropriate cross-functional team communication.

--- Research and develop new technologies for use in existing and future products.

--- Communicate with purchasing and vendors for new processes and capabilities required for new designs.

--- Serve as primary technical interface with 3rd party development partners.

--- In support of Seek's ISO Certification and QMS conformance, the Sr. Systems Engineer will ensure that process comply with the requirements of ISO, including ensuring process outputs meet intended objectives, while focusing on Customer requirements and satisfaction.

Skills Knowledge and Abilities

--- Strong knowledge of Electrical-Mechanical-Optical-Software systems design, requirements, analysis, and related design software packages required.

--- Knowledge of MATLAB, C, C++, C#, Python and/or related languages desired, familiarity required.

--- Knowledge in infrared systems, analysis, measurements, and testing desired.

--- Ability to make decisions, and effectively lead tasks and meet challenging deadlines.

--- Ability to build strong relationships and effectively partner with others.

--- Ability to multi-task in a rapid paced environment.

--- Ability to perform system tradeoff studies.

Our Story

--- The company was founded in 2012 by two industry pioneering scientists, Bill Parrish, PhD and Tim Fitzgibbons PhD , who spent 40 years advancing the state of military and professional-grade thermal imaging technology. Following their previous two companies, Amber Engineering, and Indigo Systems, each with successful acquisitions, Seek Thermal is their third venture with the mission to make thermal imaging a part of everyday life.

--- An unseen world of energy surrounds us. We only see some of it with our eyes, light from a source of energy reflected on objects around us. But even though we can't see it, all objects produce or retain heat. When viewed through a Seek Thermal camera, this world of heat can be converted to images, providing important information useful in solving everyday problems that are otherwise invisible to the naked eye. Seek thermal imaging lets you see the world of heat instead of the world of light.

--- Seek Thermal is partnered with Raytheon and NXP to design and deliver high-quality, affordable thermal imaging sensors and products across the globe at scale. As one of the few companies in the world capable of building sensors, Seek Thermal has shipped hundreds of thousands of thermal imaging products around the world as it continues to make thermal imaging an accessible, everyday tool, so people can do their jobs safer, faster, and smarter.


--- Bachelors of Science degree (BS) in Electrical or Mechanical Engineering, Physics, Math, or related field with at least 8 years professional engineering experience. In unique cases, extensive work experience can substitute for BS degree requirements.
