As an Electrical Integration Engineer, you will work within a multidisciplinary engineering team to build and test prototype robotic systems in accordance with industry standards, best practices, and requirements. We are seeking a motivated, curious, and passionate engineer for this leadership position. You will be responsible for executing early prototyping builds, automating testing and calibration of our compute systems. You will apply your expertise and knowledge in electrical engineering, robotics, automotive, and computer science to mature our designs.


You will work with product development and manufacturing engineers across the company to build next-generation compute hardware deployed in our vehicles. Directly impacting on our ability to deliver reliability improvements for our fleet. The candidate will be expected to prototype bring-up and debugging, including product characterization, and validation. Supporting the introduction of new hardware through the development of production test, inspection procedures, and supporting equipment.

In this role, the Electrical Integration Engineer will convert product performance specifications into a workable test solution. The candidate will participate in creating automated and manual test plans, perform hands-on device measurements, product characterization and optimization. The candidate will analyze and present data reviews which will serve as a basis for product release. You will contribute to root causing analysis of manufacturing yield issues and field failures to determine hardware test coverage; driving issues to closure and use lessons learned to implement preventive measures and to define manufacturing test strategy for new products.

Responsibilties

  • Development and negotiation of requirements to ensure product performance and reliability. 
  • Acceptance Testing: To provide every item shipped was checked for critical functions
  • Burn-In Testing: To weed out subsystem defects
  • Test Automation: To reduce test time and achieve repeatable results
  • Manufacturing Data Analysis: Identify trends over time and batch variations
  • Failure Analysis: Deep dive to figure out the root cause and feed it back to manufacturing or design
  • Perform failure analyses as needed, participate in continuous improvements in product manufacturability and characterization.
  • Provide product and process DFM (Design for Manufacturing) input to Product Development to enhance manufacturability and control product cost.

Qualifications

  • 5+ years' experience as a System Integration Engineer supporting early prototype development.
  • BS Degree in Electrical, Computer, or System Engineering.
  • Enthusiasm for getting "hands on" with product assembly in a low volume environment
  • Experience with design and implementation of manufacturing fixtures, Lab Equipment; and Metrology
  • Design and/or process verification, validation, and testing.
  • Experience justifying and implementing automated test processes in Python or C++

Bonus Qualifications

  • Hardware validation and debug Experience
  • Linux/ Unix /Ubuntu experience 
  • Automotive Experience
