Arduino Ace for HIGH PROFILE job in NYC at Crack – Adafruit Jobs Board

Arduino Ace for HIGH PROFILE job in NYC at Crack – Adafruit Jobs Board via .

Crack is

Looking for somebody with experience building circuits to step in to a project involving lots of different interactive elements ASAP. Of course, the most complicated one ran in to some problems and we need somebody to do some troubleshooting and/or rebuilding of a circuit borad. Work has already been done, but we need more resources.

Did I mention that it’s getting installed in one of the most visible retailers in Times Square on a looming deadline? No pressure :)
Respond via email with resume and/or rundown of some cool electronics stuff you’ve made happen.

More details:
What happens is when a momentary switch is flipped, a linear actuator retracts, an LED panel turns on, the actuator extends, and after a delay the LED panel fades out. It’s all coded and we had a circuit using a MOSFET to drive and dim the panel via PWM on the arduino. The board got shorted out and now we may need to replace resistors or the MOSFETS or the whole thing. Arduino controls the whole routine. If this sounds like no sweat to you, let’s talk. If you already have the circuit mapped out in your head by now, that’s exactly what we’re looking for.

We’re way motivated to get someone in to make this happen. Will pay well for the right person. Building is 24 hours access, and the sooner you can get here, the better, and for multiple reasons.

Potential for involvement with more straightforward elements of the install on Monday, just some hookup work.
