At Tanvas, our mission is to make your interactions with touchscreens more interesting, more natural, and more engaging.
We have developed a novel “haptic” touchscreen technology that not only tracks the fingertips, but controls what they feel:
textures, edges, collisions, and even the illusion of shape on a featureless glass panel. Tanvas is based in downtown Chicago's
easy-access west loop neighborhood. If you’re looking for a vibrant, growing company whose culture is one of open debate,
continual learning, independent work and peer-to-peer accountability, we are the right choice for your next career move.
We are seeking a full time Electrical Engineer to advance the state of the art of the TanvasTouch electronics architecture. He/She
will develop and test new electronics platforms and circuits which will expand TanvasTouch capability and enable TanvasTouch to
be introduced in new markets.
Design and delivery of electronic control boards that are tailored to new custom TanvasTouch panels.
Contribute to a team atmosphere that values open, spirited debate, accountability, and a focus on company goals.

Familiarity with high voltage challenges (100-300V) is a strong plus.
Instrumentation and measurement capability: oscilloscopes, spectrum analyzers, differential probing, and other high voltage or less common probing techniques.
