Design engineers use their technical knowledge and design expertise to research, design, test, and modify products across all types of industries. Besides focusing on making the product look good, design engineers also have to make it safe, easy, and cost-effective to use.
Great design engineers have deep competence with CAD/CAE software, meticulous subject knowledge, a thorough understanding of FEA analysis, and a persistent practice of creativity.

Test technicians perform standard testing processes on a variety of equipment and analyze results. They support technical teams with recommendations to resolve testing issues, roadblocks or malfunctions that impact the product performance. Test technicians also assemble, calibrate, and improve maintenance on equipment, machinery, and electronics.
Search for test technicians with knowledge of industry specific tests and testing equipment, soldering experience, and the ability to troubleshoot products well.

Layout engineers research, plan, and oversee circuit layout and production. They apply their expertise of electronic and mechanical systems to convert schematics into full custom layouts of analog, digital, and mixed-signal designs.
If you’re on the hunt for qualified layout engineers, look for candidates who have CAD software knowledge, a strong understanding of physical verification flows (i.e. DRC and LVS), and a proven track record of great PCB design and management.

Verification and validation engineers
Verification engineers develop the processes to determine if the software meets the specifications. They ask, “Did I build what I need?” Before launch, verification engineers build testing models, pilot the product in simulations, debug any flaws, and analyze the results.
Validation engineers create a process to test if the software captures the customer’s needs. They ask, “Did I build what I said I would?” Validation engineers validate and qualify all use cases of the design.
If you’re in the search for top engineers in these fields, look for candidates who have solid knowledge of design under test (DUT), debugging skills, and programming languages (i.e. SystemVerilog and UVM).
