Tue, October 22, 2019


InMusic Brands, the parent company to such brands as M-Audio, Akai Professional, and Denon DJ, is looking for a talented Embedded Systems Engineer to join our engineering team. The ideal candidate is as comfortable designing electrical schematics as they are writing lines of firmware.

Engineers at InMusic get the rare opportunity to do new product design daily. With short (9-12mo) design cycles and a constant stream of new products, we spend all day doing what we love to do best - designing electronics. We do the hands-on development work some engineers never get to do in their entire career.

  • System Architecture Design
  • Electrical Schematic Design
  • Firmware Design
  • PCB Layout (2-6 layer)
  • Hardware Bring-Up, Debug, and Performance Evaluation

  • Strong grasp of electrical engineering fundamentals (Yes - the stuff you learned in your undergrad)
  • Embedded systems design with MCUs
  • Ability to write and debug embedded firmware in C
  • Practical mixed-signal design knowledge
  • Familiarity with common embedded serial protocols - I2C, SPI, USB
  • Schematic design and PCB layout
  • Proficiency with common lab tools - oscilloscopes, power supplies, DVMs, etc…
  • Ability to deal with dynamic priorities / fluid product requirements
  • Excellent written communication skills to interface with overseas contract manufacturers
  • Exceptional troubleshooting skills
  • Occasional international travel (1-2 trips per year possible, but rare)
  • Bachelors of Science in Electrical Engineering (BSEE)
  • 3 to 10 years relevant experience


  • Practical embedded DSP knowledge
  • FPGA design in Verilog or VHDL
  • PC based software design in C++
