You will excel at motor control techniques and have had prior experience utilizing your skills in automotive environments. You will also heavily support detailed analysis of commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) products that may be integrated into an eAxle system for class 8 heavy duty trucks, provide support with testing and validation, and work on a talented team to create and/or evaluate new technologies and develop the most power dense, efficient, and reliable electric motor systems.

Additionally, you will:

  • Assist the team in first generation vehicle requirements tracking and validation

  • Perform complex design analysis and simulations

  • Develop engineering designs (including subsystems)

  • Implement engineering changes

  • Specify and balance system requirements

  • Plan and implement test and/or development programs

  • Generate technical solutions for current, new and major programs

  • Provide technical leadership for advanced technology development

  • Provide any additional technical support as necessary

You have:

  • M.S. in Electrical Engineering, plus 3+ years of experience, or

  • Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering, plus 1+ years of experience

  • Specialization in Control of Electrical Machines & Drives

  • 3-5 years in electrical machine controls & systems analysis

  • Extensive knowledge & experience required in electrical simulation tools, such as PLECS, Simulink, and relevant analytical models

  • An understanding of engineering theory and principles of design

  • Experience in designing, development, and testing of electric machines

  • Working knowledge of multi-objective optimization

  • Excellent oral and written communication skills.

  • Ability to troubleshoot and problem solve

  • High level of project management skills

  • Working knowledge of automotive systems

  • Working knowledge of electric motors, or hybrid systems

  • Working knowledge of electric motor and inverter controls

  • Strong interest and ability in integration and system understanding

  • High level of analytical ability where problems are unusual or difficult

  • Relatively comfortable in startup environments and with a high level of ambiguity and uncertainty

Candidates must have current U.S. work authorization or be TN eligible from Mexico or Canada. This position is not eligible for CPT or OPT.
