Good luck to whoever gets the job. Shame I don't live out there. Would totally apply.

For a qualified candidate with audio experience we would consider some support for relocation.

Oh gosh this is my dream (I mean look at my profile picture after all). However I have 0 post-secondary. Just lots of retail/sales, and just super nerdy at home. 3D printer and all. Made my Open Alphas (Slowly getting more advanced with Fusion360). That...... and I'm Canadian heh.

I understand electronics, and love Dan Clark (Aeon 2 Closed here with a B.S in Physics - EE concentration). No direct design experience, but I’ve worked in mechanical stress testing of metals. This sounds like a really cool opportunity!
