  • Driving choices and development in:

  • winding technology

  • magnet technology

  • steel stamping and lamination joining

  • electrical insulation systems

  • interconnections

  • thermal sensing

  • Identifying and qualifying suppliers of raw materials, components, and assemblies

  • Design validation and durability testing profile development and data analysis

  • Carry designs through to high-volume production; DFM, cost reductions, and second sourcing

  • Mentoring junior engineers and interns


The ideal candidate will have:

  • Evidence of exceptional ability

  • Taken motor designs from clean sheet to volume production

  • Experience with multiple coil winding and termination technologies

  • Experience with multiple magnet technologies

  • Worked with an international supply chain

  • Automotive design and validation experience

  • Asked "why" throughout his or her career
