Open Position: Senior FPGA Design Engineer

BLT offers a dynamic, fast-paced, challenge to those that thrive on it. This isn’t an environment for designers who want to blend in. This is an opportunity for those who want to solve problems, push technology, design at a higher level, and see the results of their work in action. Our designs are in space, undersea, and everywhere in between. If you work with us, imagine what your designs could do.
