Job Description

Role: Senior Power Electronics engineer

A growing company based in Warwick are looking to hire a senior power electronics engineer.
My client is happy to conduct interviews via skype and even make an offer so once COVID-19 lockdown is over you can start work.

My client is fortunate to have excellent facilities and the latest test equipment for you to do the role to the best of your ability.

Your role is designing, building and testing power electronics systems from concept to prototype and into production. You will have hands-on involvement all the way.

Responsibilities include:

*Specification writing and interpretation.
*Circuit design and simulation of DC-DC, AC-DC converters using hard, soft and resonant switching techniques.
*PCB design from schematics.
*Power electronics circuit layout.
*Design interface, gate drive and control PCBs.
*Prototyping and product development on the bench.
*Product / Project documentation (e.g. design notes, bills of materials, user manuals)
*Writing embedded control software as required.
*Day-to-day project management and reporting.
*Liaison with customers and suppliers, occasionally working on customer sites with their engineers.
*You must be degree qualified in Electronics Engineering or equivalent and possess experience of working in a similar field of Power Electronics. You will have a keen eye for detail, creative problem-solving skills and the ability to work individually and as part of a team.

Key skills required:

To apply for this role, you must have power electronics (as distinct from just electronics) experience.

So you should have experience with 'traction motor inverters', 'dc-dc convertors', 'BMS (battery management systems)' all for vehicle, charging infrastructure (such as BP Chargemaster) or large plant applications.

Other skills required:

*Knowledge of CAN bus communications.
*Practical soldering skills (using a microscope) required for PCB assembly.
*Knowledge of the use and limitations of lab test equipment and instrumentation.
*Experience of Matlab / Simulink / LabVIEW / MISRA C an advantage.
*Familiar with product delivery process from requirements capture to design validation, preferably for power electronics or electric vehicle electronics.
*Knowledge of designing for high voltages and high currents an advantage.
*Proven delivery of goals while working to tight timescales.
*Experience of DFMEA an advantage.
