Burlington, VT, USA
Posted on Tuesday, November 21, 2023

Resonant Link is transforming the charging experience across industries and leading the movement to electrify work, logistics, transportation, and patient care. Our mission is to provide fast, safe, and reliable wireless power to help people, businesses, and the planet thrive, and more specifically, to:

  1. Power fleets while they work: enable material handling equipment like forklifts and robots to achieve 24/7 uptime. Resonant Link envisions a future where wireless chargers are integrated into the stops that already exist during fleet operation (think pick stations for robots or loading docks for forklifts), saving time, saving money, and protecting the planet through smaller batteries, smaller fleets, and more efficient power distribution and energy storage.
  2. Eliminate drivelines and risky battery replacement surgeries, forever: eliminate unnecessary surgeries, enable new therapies, and elevate existing treatments with the world’s smallest, fastest, patient friendly wireless chargers for implantable medical devices like neurostimulators, pumps, and pacemakers.

As a Regulatory Compliance Engineer, you will be responsible for creating Resonant Link’s regulatory compliance strategy to ensure our wireless charging products meet all applicable standards and guidelines. You will be solution focused, collaborating early and often with cross-functional teams, including product management, engineering, supply chain, and manufacturing operations, to ensure product safety and regulatory compliance are central to our products and our development processes. You will first support our Mobility vertical, specifically focusing on obtaining UL, EMC, and material compliance for our Lift Truck Charger to be sold in North American and the European Union. Later, you will partner with our product management and sales teams to implement our geographic sales strategy for this product family, with future opportunity to support other business verticals and product families.
