Commonwealth Fusion Systems (CFS) has the fastest, lowest cost path to commercial fusion energy.
CFS collaborates with MIT to leverage decades of research combined with groundbreaking new high-temperature superconducting (HTS) magnet technology. HTS magnets will enable compact fusion power plants that can be constructed faster and at lower cost. Our mission is to deploy these power plants to meet global decarbonization goals as fast as possible. To that end, CFS has assembled a team of leaders in tough tech, fusion science, and manufacturing with a track record of rapid execution. Supported by the world’s leading investors, CFS is uniquely positioned to deliver limitless, clean, fusion power to combat climate change. To implement this plan, we are looking to add dedicated people to the team who treat people well, improve our work by adding multifaceted perspectives and new ways of solving problems, have achieved outstanding results through a range of pursuits, and have skills and experience related to this role.
This position will be the first full-time electrical CAD hire dedicated to Altium support, playing a critical role in supporting PCB design activities throughout the company. This position will play a pivotal role in shaping best practices and design standards. The PCB Librarian will be responsible for the Altium 365 server, licensing, and all shared content (libraries, drawing templates, etc). The ideal candidate is someone with a strong understanding of industry standards for PCB design, a good sense of how to effectively structure data, and a desire to help others elevate the quality of their work.

  • Maintain shared templates for components, drawings, projects, etc.
  • Manage Altium licenses
  • Integrate Altium with SSO and PLM tools (Okta, TeamCenter)
  • Establish and document CAD standards, best practices, and internal workflows
  • Onboard and train new users

The ideal candidate will have most, if not all, of these requirements:

  • Bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering
  • 5+ years management of ECAD library
  • Altium 365 administration
  • IPC standards for PCB design (IPC-2610 series, IPC-6010 series, 7351, etc.)
  • PCB layout experience

Additional experience and/or qualifications:

  • PLM administration
  • ERP administration
  • Electrical engineering fundamentals
  • Electrical simulation experience
  • Perform activities such as typing or sitting for extended periods of time
  • Dedication to safety to mitigate industrial hazards that may include heat, cold, noise, fumes, strong magnets, lead (Pb), high voltage, and cryogenics
  • #LI-Hybrid
