This is what you'll do:

  • The Electrical Distribution Systems (EDS) Design Release Engineer (DRE) for Advanced Packaging and Provisional Components (APPC) will be responsible and accountable for ensuring all assigned provisional components are readied for release to support mass production in accordance with Rivian engineering best design practices, considering DFM/DFA, and APQP/PPAP supplier quality standards. The APPC Design Release Engineer will act as a technical program manager for their assigned components and ensure supporting Systems and Application Engineers have completed all necessary design deliverables to support Gateway objectives from initial, product plan feature requirements, mid-cycle actions, through end of vehicle life.

This is what you'll be responsible for:

  • Accountable for development and release of bespoke, provisional sub-components (e.g. grommets, channels/carriers, stamped or plastic-injection molded brackets, unique connectors, stamped GND terminals, etc.)

  • Collaborate with EDS DRE(s) to align 3D routing path interfaces for provisional components in the vehicle environment using CATIA v6 software

  • Develop and/or adopt test standards and gateway sub-components and materials into an approved component list (e.g. material properties, conformance requirements, cyclic corrosion, ergonomics, etc.)

  • Continuously improve Rivian best practices for harness provisional routing guidelines

  • Support pre-sourcing with developing concept studies for provisional components, supporting 2D/3D librarians for information gathering from Tier1 / Tier2 suppliers

  • Author RFI / RFQs, definition of SoW(s) and/or SoR(s), support supplier technical reviews and support definition of the most practical supplier for each program providing input for cost, quality, and responsiveness

  • Prepare PLM release process in Enovia (eBOM), by creating component PN(s), including tech and packaging variants, utilizing Risk Assessment Tooling (RAT) to establish safety critical and homologation aspects of each releasable component

  • Construct component complexity matrices, defining manufacturing sales codes strings by PN, including the fabrication of specific sales codes not defined in the product plan to support harness complexity, such as assembly and packaging variants

  • Ensure the definition of piece-price, prototype/production tooling costs, mass, and all other administrative specifications are defined prior to release in Enovia (eBOM)

  • Evaluate the state of the design in accordance with program mass, piece-price, and prototype/production tooling targets and harmonize them through an RoR Matrix

  • Author and illustrate performance test requirements to ensure component DVP&R, and that all vehicle level tests are completed prior to part warrant (e.g. humidity/accelerated aging/thermal shock, submersion, etc.)

  • Lead internal and supplier design reviews of all assigned provisional components ensuring closure of ALL issues, identifying design failure modes, supporting functional safety requirements, and ensuring completion of all related component and vehicle level DVP&R items

  • Support Rivian Vehicle Assembly and Tier1 builds, including on-site support for rapid design and rework for prototype / pre-production mule, electrical/mechanical static buck(s), and verification phases

  • Lead future program studies and develop concept models for early authoring of commercial documents

This is what you'll need:

  • Patience, kindness, self-control, confidently centered around a positive mental attitude

  • Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering, Material Science, or related engineering disciplines

  • 5+ years of automotive or aerospace harness assembly design and release experience

  • A current, industry standard knowledge of design verification testing required for provisional components

  • Experience with harness sub-components, metal stamping, plastic-injection molding, rapid prototype tooling and molds

  • Effective ability to select appropriate coverings for protection against abrasion / serrations / BSR/NVH / EMI, that also accommodate harness geometries for packaging, understanding cost / design differentials

  • Effective ability to package provisional components in 3D virtual environment, understanding non-compliant ergonomics, tach-times, and vehicle assembly sequencing

  • 3D CAD experience with CATIA v5/v6, NX, SolidWorks, or etc.

  • 2D CAD experience with AutoCAD, MentorGraphics, Arcadia, or etc.

  • Willingness to develop new technologies for future programs

  • Fluent in English (speaking, reading, writing, and listening)

  • Self-driven, displaying initiative with minimal supervision

  • Proficient in Microsoft Office Word, Excel, Visio, and Power Point

This is where you'll work:

Department: Low-Voltage Electrical (LVE)

Location: Plymouth
