WHAT TO EXPECT
As a Senior Power Electronic Design Engineer, you will be working within the Advanced Engineering team and be responsible for technically leading the power electronic research & development activities for high performance traction inverters.
Key Accountabilities and Responsibilities
As a Senior Power Electronic Design Engineer your key accountabilities and responsibilities will include the design, development and implementation of power electronics commodities and their key technologies such as power modules, semiconductors, gate drivers and DC link capacitors from concept to industrialisation. You will also support links with Suppliers, Universities, Research institutions and Technology Innovation Centres on power electronic technologies and applications.
WHAT YOU'LL NEED
The ideal candidate will be a proactive engineer seeking to develop full lifecycle experience in automotive power electronic products. Strong people skills and the ability to work individually and in a cross functional team. You will have an organised and committed approach to deliver complex work packages concurrently and be an effective communicator.
