Manage end user support for ECAD applications including EDA kits and ECAD libraries; solve complex technical issues that arise.
Independently plan, coordinate and implement ECAD software installations, version upgrades and creation of templates which includes determining where software has been deployed, how it is utilized, and make recommendations regarding which ones get upgraded. Typical ECAD applications include OrCAD, Mentor Graphics, Cadence, AutoCAD, ANSYS Maxwell, MatLab, Xilinx Vivado, LabView and open source tools.
Deploy and maintain various servers in a virtualized infrastructure.
Provide innovative solutions to common problems that arise with managing a large IT footprint, including software and firmware version control. Typical operational systems and compilers are Windows, Linux, Python, C and C++.
Determine methods, make recommendations and help implement software functionality improvements to increase efficiency, accuracy and consistency in work output.
Work with other members of the Engineering Division CAD group to streamline and customize our engineer's PLM experience.
Determine and develop mechanisms for storing data and integrating third party applications within our PLM systems. Engineering Division has adopted PTC Windchill as the main PLM platform and an in-house design for the Document Control Center (DCC).
Contribute to standards and quality assurance documentation.
Implement and document design standards, parameterize documents, create drawing templates for uniform project drawings and documentation, develop user guides and procedures to support uniform schematics, drawings and documentation.
Plan and coordinate efforts in automating as much of our engineering workflow as possible through PLM and DCC.
Onboard and train staff in the usage of Engineering's computing infrastructure and workflow of Electronics CAD tools.
Requires a minimum of 8 years of related experience with a Bachelor's degree; or 6 years and a Master's degree; or equivalent experience.
Demonstrated general knowledge and support of ECAD applications (could include: OrCAD, Mentor Graphics, Cadence, AutoCAD, ANSYS Maxwell, MatLab, Xilinx Vivado, LabView and open source tools).
Provide end user technical support for ECAD applications, including licenses and version upgrades
Demonstrated experience managing and interfacing electronics engineering documents in PLM
Working knowledge of Unix/Linux and Windows operating systems
Experience working with servers and services to maximize up time and minimize configuration complexities
Demonstrated experience performing in a team atmosphere involving multi-disciplinary personnel
Experience maintaining EDA kits and libraries
Development and maintenance of PLM part libraries
EDA electronics design automation or CAD experience
Ability to lift 10-20 pounds
Additional Desired Qualifications:
Experience with low level Unix/Linux server services
Ability to understand and develop in one or more programming or scripting languages
Familiarity with remote access tools and technologies like VNC, SSH, etc.
Working knowledge of GIT or SVN version control system
The posting shall remain open until the position is filled.
This is a 2-year term appointment with the possibility of extension or conversion to Career appointment based upon satisfactory job performance, continuing availability of funds and ongoing operational needs
Full-time, M-F, exempt (monthly paid) from overtime pay.
Salary is commensurate with experience.
This position may be subject to a background check. Any convictions will be evaluated to determine if they directly relate to the responsibilities and requirements of the position. Having a conviction history will not automatically disqualify an applicant from being considered for employment.

About Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory
In the world of science, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) is synonymous with excellence. Thirteen scientists associated with Berkeley Lab have won the Nobel Prize. Fifty-seven Lab scientists are members of the National Academy of Sciences (NAS), one of the highest honors for a scientist in the United States. Thirteen of our scientists have won the National Medal of Science, our nation's highest award for lifetime achievement in fields of scientific research. Eighteen of our engineers have been elected to the National Academy of Engineering, and three of our scientists have been elected into the Institute of Medicine. In addition, Berkeley Lab has trained thousands of university science and engineering students who are advancing technological innovations across the nation and around the world. Berkeley Lab is a member of the national laboratory system supported by the U.S. Department of Energy through its Office of Science. It is managed by the University of California (UC) and is charged with conducting unclassified research across a wide range of scientific disciplines. Located on a 200-acre site in the hills above the UC Berkeley campus that offers spectacular... views of the San Francisco Bay, Berkeley Lab employs approximately 4,200 scientists, engineers, support staff and students. Its budget for 2011 is $735 million, with an additional $101 million in funding from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, for a total of $836 million. A recent study estimates the Laboratory's overall economic impact through direct, indirect and induced spending on the nine counties that make up the San Francisco Bay Area to be nearly $700 million annually. The Lab was also responsible for creating 5,600 jobs locally and 12,000 nationally. The overall economic impact on the national economy is estimated at $1.6 billion a year. Technologies developed at Berkeley Lab have generated billions of dollars in revenues, and thousands of jobs. Savings as a result of Berkeley Lab developments in lighting and windows, and other energy-efficient technologies, have also been in the billions of dollars. Berkeley Lab was founded in 1931 by Ernest Orlando Lawrence, a UC Berkeley physicist who won the 1939 Nobel Prize in physics for his invention of the cyclotron, a circular particle accelerator that opened the door to high-energy physics. It was Lawrence's belief that scientific research is best done through teams of individuals with different fields of expertise, working together. His teamwork concept is a Berkeley Lab legacy that continues today.
