About Gabriel Calderon:

My academic background as an engineer, as well as my PhD studies, have allowed me to become a professional in the area of electronic engineering; I have focused my efforts on topics related to power electronics, automatic control, modeling and simulation of systems and renewable energies. My work experience as a hardware engineer, as well as in the educational sector as a professor, has allowed me to acquire a large number of valuable skills; I am able to identify problems and propose solutions in a methodical way, having as main tools an extensive theoretical-practical knowledge, which I combine with the values of discipline, perseverance, constancy and teamwork.


Senior Project Engineer. - Space AI. 11/2021 - 09/2022

- Coordinate with project managers to successfully deliver projects using Trello App and different Communication Technologies, having as a result 2 successful suborbital Cubesat test flights in less than a month, interacting with external work teams to achieve the objective.

- Supervise staff in carrying out plans and programs using Trello App, cloud storage platforms and video conference Apps, delivering 5 functional Electronic Circuit Boards designs created under the Cubesat standard, including the Firmware and operating system.

-  Contact and coordinate as necessary to suppliers and Supply Chain management, validating availability of BOM and stock quantity, achieving complete hardware manufacturing of 100 Nanosatellites for ground applications.

- Provide senior-level technical expertise to 4 clients on project aspects within the discipline, creating and providing technical datasheets using Microsoft Office as a text editor and SolidWorks to create edited figures; technical support was also given to the client by video conference.

- Manage the coordination and overall integration of technical activities in engineering projects, organizing and storing on Drive cloud storage all the compendium of information (datasheets, pcb layout, BOM, schematics, firmware, software) related to Ground and Space Projects and more than 6 Electronic Circuit Boards developments.


Hardware Development Engineer. - Space AI. 05/2020 - 10/2021

Meeting with design and engineering teams interacting with more than 20 different workers from 3 different work teams determining hardware requirements, getting at least 2 versions of the proposed designs, taking into account technical specifications, costs and stock availability.

- Designing, supervising and developing printed circuit boards (PCB) using Altium, counting more than 6

functional designs for Ground and Space applications (farming, smart cities, oil and gas pipeline monitoring, Cubesat satellites, distributed networks, e.g.)

Collaboration with software engineers sharing information and technical advice (hardware specifications, PCB design, BOM, schematics), ensuring software compatibility and integration with hardware components avoiding delays in the process of production due to eventual design omissions.

Supervision of the manufacturing process and assembly of 12-layer PCB designs; generating Gerber

files using Altium and ensuring the design is within the manufacturer's capabilities; generating curves

of cost vs. quantity related to manufacturing and electronic parts, thus reducing production costs by up to 85%.

- Test supervision to electronic circuit boards; the most representative PCBs designs were compute, OrchestratorData processing, wired and wireless communications and RF communications.

- Implementing modifications to existing components according to Stock availability, price and technical specifications.


Professor in the Division of Bachelor's Degree. - UPEMOR. 07/2018 - 04/2021

- Professor in the areas of Electronics and Telecommunications EngineeringComputer and Industrial Engineering.

- Teaching classes to more than 300 students during courses such as Direct Current Electrical Circuits, AC Electrical Circuits Analysis, Renewable Energies, Electrical Maintenance, electrical instrumentation, Selected Topics of Electronics among others.

Thesis work advisor at the engineering level.

- Participation as a jury in grade examination committees, both at the Engineering and Postgraduate Levels.

- Propose working lines to be developed by the electronic engineering team.

- Coordinate, organize and supervise the electronic engineering teamwork.


Hardware Development Engineer. - Space AI. 03/2017 - 06/2018

- Development of hardware and PCB design using Altium.

- Coordinate, organize, and supervise PCB manufacturing.

- Coordinate purchasing and supply chain for electronic parts and components.

- Teamwork with the software department.
