Senior Power Electronics Engineer

Company: Curtis Instruments, Inc.
Location: Livermore
Posted on: January 15, 2019

Job Description:

Curtis design engineers develop the next generation of motor controllers that lead the industry for material handling and golf carts. Our existing controller offerings have battery voltages ranging from 24V to 144V, and load currents from 50A to 1000A. Next we are exploring to increase the battery voltage levels up to 400V, which is why our team is growing.
For this position we are specifically looking for an engineer that has the relevant experience to design the 400V power converter. Mainly focusing on the power switches (likely using 600V IGBT modules), filter capacitors, liquid cooling, gate drives, etc.
As a member of the electrical design team you will own the circuit design of a new product. You will work closely with the project lead and the control, software and mechanical engineers from design kick-off until product release. If you get excited about researching and developing new things, aren't daunted by solving design challenges and enjoy directly impacting current and future products daily, then our team might be your next career step.
What you'll do:

  • Design and document the circuits needed to meet the specifications of a new motor controller product, reusing existing designs as much as possible. Apply current techniques and tools to improve cost, design time, reliability and manufacturability.
  • Use analysis, simulations and/or measurements to demonstrate how the requirements are met.
  • Own the schematic capture and BOM. Guide the PCB designers.
  • Author the HW verification test plan to cover all requirements.
  • Work with the verification engineers/technicians to ensure the design meets the specifications for each stage of development.
  • Spend up to 20% of your time researching new technologies.

    You should have:

    • BSEE or equivalent with five plus years of applicable design experience in a relevant technical discipline.
    • Demonstrated ability to develop designs to meet project specifications, costs and schedules.
    • Schematic capture and circuit simulation tool experience.
    • Ability to execute own work with minimal supervision.
    • Effective verbal and written communication skills.

      Preferred Qualifications

      • MSEE or Ph.D. and ten plus years of design experience in power electronics or related discipline.
      • 200V-600V design experience.

        Please do not apply if you have no industry experience. Research experience is great, but does not take the place of industry experience. Thank you.
