We are seeking a senior electrical engineer, with experience in power electronic circuits and systems development.
The candidate must be comfortable working with commercial off-the-shelf and custom hardware designs to achieve system requirements.
Responsibilities will require working within a team of engineers to develop proven designs based on modeling and simulations.
The candidate must have a proven track record of meeting schedule deadlines, and project budgets.
He or she should also
expect to work closely with other members of the development team in translating system performance and operational specifications into hardware functional requirements, and achieving those requirements in design, test, and verification.
This opportunity requires a combination of classic design techniques, modern power electronics knowledge, and hands on laboratory skills.
Applicant will work as part of a highly motivated team environment, and will be collaborating with cross-functional project teams making up a larger program or internal research and development efforts. Our engineers are assigned to a section manager of approximately 20 employees with similar skills. Each section manager is responsible for their members’ performance, career development, and assigning tasks that balance the employees’ interests with current needs of the project teams.
This position requires the following:
- Experience in the design and development of power system hardware including power converters, power conditioners, or power distribution systems.
- Experience modeling and simulating using Mentor Graphics System Vision, PSPICE, MATLAB/Simulink, or similar computer based tool.
- Experience using test equipment to test and verify the performance of power electronics and power system hardware.
- Experience writing detailed verification test plans and test reports.
- Experience working with procurement and manufacturing as well as external suppliers to ensure proper implementation of product designs.
It is desirable that the candidate have the following:
10 years minimum experience in power electronic circuit and system development
Hardware development experience in a DoD environment.
Excellent communication skills and the ability to function effectively as part of a larger team.
BS in EE (Advanced degree
This position can be Salary Grade E03 (Senior Electrical Engineer) or Salary Grade E04 (Senior Electrical Engineer II) based upon the applicant’s qualifications as they relate to the skills, experience and responsibility requirements of the position.
