Global leading player in high-tech electrical engineering solutions
Challenging position in an international environment
About Our Client
Our client is a leading global player in the engineering and manufacturing of complex electrical engineering products and solutions used in heavy duty and mission critical industrial environments.
In this role you will be part of the R&D organisation, specifically on the team focusing on the development of new hardware components and modules and as well on the sustaining engineering / value engineering of existing products, at different stages of the lifecycle.
Our clients products and solutions have a long lifecycle; this means that some of the electronic components of the original design would be not available in the market anymore or have been improved by a better technology.
An important part of this sustaining engineering job is working on the lifecycle management of these products and create the technical specifications of the elements to be re-designed.
The core aspects of the job can be summarized as follows:
- New development and sustaining engineering of hardware components like Printed Circuit Boards (PCBs) and Power Conversion Modules, including testing and documentation.
- Creation of complex understandable hardware documentation, including requirements specifications, detailed concepts, validation plans, design specifications, verification reports, etc.
- Support Customer Service on critical Hardware/System issues (3rd level support) and work on the root cause analysis of the identified issues.
The Successful Applicant
We are looking for a candidate with an electrical engineering or equivalent educational background. This can be somebody with a university (ETH or equivalent) or applied science university (Fachhochschule) degree (MSc/BSc), but as well somebody with an electrical engineering / electronics apprenticeship and relevant professional experience.
The hired candidate will bring several years of experience in hardware design (analogue, digital) and a solid knowhow in power electronics.
EMC (Electromagnetical compatibility) knowledge would be an advantage.
The working language is English and a proficient level of English is a must for this position. Additional languages, particularly German, would be a plus.
In terms of personality and soft skills we are looking for somebody with strong analytical skills to translate requirements specifications into technical solutions. The hired candidate should be somebody well organized, with high quality standards and able to work under tight project deadlines in a matrix organization.
