About us :

At Myant, we are creating the world’s first textile computing platform, integrating technology directly into the only thing we’ve been wearing our entire life †clothing.

SKIIN is our first consumer facing brand, and SKIIN’s vision is to enhance human ability through connected clothing - think Ironman’s suit, but comfortable.

The sensors and actuators embedded within our apparel create your Digital Identity, which will be consumed by those who matter to you - your family members, doctors, coaches, other IoT devices - without you consciously having to think about it.

Imagine a world where you walk into your house and the temperature automatically adjusts to your optimal body temperature, the lights adjust to your mood, or your doctor is aware of the onset of a disease before you even visit.

The line between the digital and physical world is becoming increasingly blurry, and we believe textile is the next medium to bridge that gap.

We’re looking for people who believe in our mission to make wearable technology truly ubiquitous and convenient, so that everyone can benefit from it.

We are a cross-functional team solving big challenges at the intersection of fashion, electronics, software, and data science.

Position Summary :

We are seeking a highly motivated and versatile Electrical Engineer to join our R&D team. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to contribute in ideation, high-level design, and then design of electroincs / firmware of medical device prototypes based on e-textiles.

To be successful, the candidate must have a strong background in designing analog / mixed-signal IC electronics and development of efficient firmware for ARM-based micro-controllers.

Experience with bio-signals and / or low-power wearable systems would be an important asset. Applicants should have a keen eye for solving problems that currently do not have well defined solutions and be able to rapidly design / prototype these ideas.

The successful candidate will join a multidisciplinary team of scientists, engineers, textile experts, fashion designers and entrepreneurs to actively participate in the creation and optimization of new products, and should be able to effectively work in multi-disciplinary teams.

Responsibilities :

  • Research, design and develop analog / mixed-signal IC electronics for the next generation of smart textiles including firmware
  • Rapid prototyping and validation of electrical designs
  • Optimizing designs for power, miniaturization and cost
  • Bring-up PCBs, document bugs, iterate on designs
  • Understanding of RTOS and ability to write application drivers
  • Work closely with a variety of people / teams with different disciplines (mechanical, firmware, data science, software, industrial design, textile)
  • Aid in the assembly of prototypes and debug issues on the fly
  • Requirements :

  • MASc or PhD (preferred), in Electrical / Biomedical engineering or related fields
  • 5-10 years of experience with electrical circuit design and firmware development
  • Proficient with software such as Altium, Eagle, etc for circuit analysis / debugging and PCB design
  • Experience working on embedded systems
  • Previous experience with embedded communication protocols such as UART, I2C, USB, SPI, etc.
  • Strong analytical, problem solving, and leadership capabilities
  • Ability to contribute and work effectively in a fast-paced, multidisciplinary environment
  • Understanding of biosignals and signal processing techniques would be an important asset
