Job Description for Senior Electronics Design Engineer

The Internet has opened the way for new innovation in the realm of electronic device design, which has led to a number of innovations in the infrastructure that allows all of these devices work and communicate with each other. Senior electronics design engineers help design the many devices consumers use. They generally coordinate and manage teams of multidisciplinary electronics design engineers, guiding and helping them in design and development work. Though they operate mostly in a supervisory role, the senior electronics design engineer often engages in many of the same duties as a regular engineer while working with other engineers to produce a final operating prototype or to modify and refine existing designs; they also aid in testing final designs for operational fidelity.
