Job Description

Great time to join an expanding company developing some of the very latest technology used to support electric vehicles. Senior Electronics Engineers are the key detailed designers for the electronic projects in the in-wheel motor range, and you will be responsible for designing and executing the test and validation programs for your designs, including management of external test bodies.

This position would suit an Engineer who has knowledge and experience of ISO 26262 and considerable industry experience, seeing a product from concept into production.

This role reports to the Electronics Design Manager and is based in the UK with an occasional requirement for national and international travel, primarily to China/Europe.

Key Responsibilities

 Full life cycle design from initial concept through to productionisation

 Embedded control and digital systems design

 Sensor selection and analogue interfacing

 Simulation, calculation and circuit design

 Writing design specifications and reports

 Driving validation and verification activities

 Presentation in design reviews

 Supporting manufacturing activities in UK and China

Relevant Knowledge & Experience


 Good degree in Electronic Engineering or similar

 Strong experience in design and analysis of embedded microprocessors

 Test and evaluation of electronics systems

 Electrical and thermal modelling and simulation

 Multiple journeys through complete development lifecycles

 Design for EMC and analysing and rectifying compliance issues

 Design for Manufacture

 Design for Functional Safety to ISO26262 (ideally ASIL D)



 Familiarity with Texas Instruments or Infineon safety micro processors

 Experience in an automotive OEM or Tier 1 supplier

 Familiarity with relevant automotive legislation, standards and guidelines

 Calculation of component stress and de-rating and reliability estimation

 Experience of VHDL on FPGA

 Some familiarity with C programming

 Familiarity with Mentor Graphics PADS and DxDesigner (Altium also desirable)

 Experience of using and applying DFMEA

Although experience with PCB layout will be viewed favourably, this is a desirable skill and not inherent to the role.

There is a preference to find an Engineer with automotive experience, although other regulated industries such as Aerospace, Industrial Control, Medical will be considered.
