Senior Power Electronics Engineer
Warwickshire, UK GBP40-55k + pension
This role is open to proven power electronics design engineers that have a natural interest in technology and are keen to take ownership of power electronic product development.
The position has been created within a small but growing company that designs and develops high speed electric motors for low carbon, hybrid and electric vehicle applications mostly for the automotive domain.
Power Electronics Engineer:
You will work within an established team of electronics engineers and will be involved with full product design and development. Typically this will involve:
• Design and development of power electronic circuits (including drive and control circuits) - schematic capture and PCB layout
• Assistance and involvement with build, assembly, prototyping, test and validation of electronics in the lab
• Involvement with fault investigation, FMEA and new product introduction
• Mentoring junior engineers and leading product development
The company is small hence the role will be varied and challenging and will require a flexible attitude. As a senior power electronics design engineer you will own power electronics projects taking new designs through to test, validation, type approval and into manufacture.
Skills / Knowledge: Power Electronics Engineer:
• Ideally a degree or higher in a relevant subject (e.g. electronics engineering, computer science, physics, etc)
• Extensive evidence of the design and development of power electronics, DC-DC converters, Inverter design or similar would be preferred
• A good background in analogue / digital electronics design (schematic capture and ideally PCB layout)
• Experience of working on high reliability or safety critical systems would be ideal
• Experience of relevant design and engineering standards (e.g. ISO18750, ISO26262, etc)
• Good communication skills, well organised, a flexible attitude and ability to manage your own projects
Others: (beneficial skills) Power Electronics Engineer:
• Experience of embedded software programming for control applications would be useful
• Experience of high speed motor control, industrial drives, robotics, mechatronics or similar may prove useful
• Matlab / Similunk for control systems modelling may prove useful
Electronics engineers with an interest in the automotive, electric vehicle, hybrid / low emissions or renewables markets would find this company very interesting.
