Job Description

In the role of Electronics Engineer, you will participate in projects within a high performance team to develop world class powertrain and battery products.  You will apply your electronics design and development experience, analytical ability and leadership skill to deliver results that will drive value and benefit society.  Additionally, you should be comfortable with international travel and delivering technical presentations to internal and external customers. You will be challenged to develop highly innovative designs using leading edge tools with a fast paced team. We have some great ideas we think can drastically improve EV’s and we need you to support our fast growing team.


Fulfilling your role you will:

  • Form part of the Electronics team that is responsible for bringing world leading new products to market.
  • Working with a team to develop BMS, thermal system, and advanced high rate EV charging technologies
  • Lay out PCB’s, designing schematics, selecting components, prototyping boards
  • Design multi-layered RF/high-speed digital/mixed signal PCBs from engineering supplied schematics
  • Work closely with electrical, process and mechanical engineering to conceptualize and design the entire product electronic packaging
  • Collaborate with electrical engineers during parts placement and signal routing to ensure PCB design meets all requirements
  • Collaborate with mechanical design engineers to ensure mechanical integrity as well as thermal requirements are met
  • Interface with PCB vendors to resolve technical data issues or coordinate build deviations
  • Create and maintain component database, this includes creation of schematic symbol, PCB footprints, and 3D models for ongoing use in PCB designs
