Are you an experienced Electronics Engineer who has worked in a safety critical environment? Do you want to be involved in the latest cutting-edge technology within the Autonomous Vehicle Industry? This is a permanent opportunity where you will have great hands on exposure to component level design, safety critical systems and FMEA. You will need to be commutable or happy to move closer to Nuneaton to be considered.

SALARY: Up to GBP50,000 dependent on your relevant practical work experience and qualifications

BENEFITS: Pension, Healthcare, Life Assurance and Flexitime are on offer

LOCATION: Nuneaton, Warwickshire

COMMUTABLE LOCATIONS: Nuneaton, Leicester, Tamworth, Birmingham, Coventry, Rugby, Burton-On-Trent, Litchfield, Sutton Coldfield

JOB SPECIFICATION: Electronics Engineer - Automotive Braking, Suspension and Electronic Braking Systems

Working within an expanding R&D team, this Electronics Engineer role will be site-based in the Nuneaton area, working on the design, development and testing of the latest vehicle braking products and air suspension systems. This could be developing new products or working on new cutting-edge technology.

This permanent role has come about through the need to replace an Interim Electronics Engineer.

The core areas of this role will be the specification, electrical / electronic design, evaluation and development down to component level.

Electronics Engineer - duties and responsibilities will include:
?? Creation of product performance specifications
?? Proposal and evaluation of electronics hardware designs - including the selection of electrical parts and components
?? Component level design, prepare circuit schematics, technical specifications and a Bill of Material (BOM) of electronic components
?? Assist with the procurement and evaluation of design prototypes as per internal or external client briefs
?? The creation of technical product documentation to aid in the installation / commissioning and the compilation of service manuals

REQUIREMENTS: Electronics Engineer - Automotive Braking, Suspension and Electronic Braking Systems

?? Electrical or Electronic Engineering qualification. Ideally you will be degree educated to at least a B.Eng or an M.Eng in Electronic Engineering or similar
?? You will have practical experience of designing to PCB's component level, specifying and validating electronic hardware from within a product development environment
?? This experience could have come from a variety of safety critical sectors (such as Aerospace, Automotive, Motor-sport, autonomous vehicles, driver-less cars etc)
?? You will have worked on projects - particularly with the design & development of electronic circuits from concept through to final manufacturing and product test validation
?? You must be able to describe any risk assessment (DFMEA) or EMC development experience. We really see these as being key pointers to developing high quality systems

Any additional exposure to LabVIEW or EMC design techniques would be advantageous, as would any electronics systems work under-taken in a safety critical environment.

I will be looking for applicants to demonstrate a practical understanding (beyond the theoretical / academic) of the real-world applications of these products
