Position Description:
Gatan, an AMETEK business, that was acquired in 2019 for $925M, is a high technology company and a recognized world leader in the design and manufacture of state-of-the-art electron microscopy equipment.

There is always more to see. And when you’re working with electron microscopy, the closer you can get to your sample, the more of its secrets it will reveal. That’s why at Gatan we have spent the last 50 years working with our customers to push the boundaries of what can be done with electron microscopy. Together, we have invented new approaches to problems that deliver fresh understanding.

With state of the art cameras, imaging energy filters, specimen preparation equipment and other EM products and solutions, we take the most powerful microscopy on earth and make it work even harder for you.

We are currently seeking an experienced Senior Analog – Mixed Signal Engineer for our current and next generation cameras, imaging energy filters, specimen preparation equipment and other EM products. This individual will be responsible for working closely with the System, Software and Hardware groups to provide the electrical designs.  This position will be based out of our Pleasanton, CA office.
