With significant growth in the field of powertrain hybridization and electrification, AVL is looking for a driven and highly capable engineer who can quickly contribute to this field in one or a number of these areas: Energy Storage, Battery Management Systems, Power Electronics/E-Motors, Hybrid/Electrified Powertrain Controls, System Integration. This role will be part of a cross functional team working at all stages of hybrid and electrified powertrain development; from concept work, to initial demonstrator development, through to production solutions. Working experience is not required, however, experience through an extra curricular activity or internship is preferred.
Applicants must be currently authorized to work in the United States on a full-time basis. Employer will not sponsor an applicant for a work visa for this position.
The Electrification Team works to define project architectures, system and component requirements, develops EV and HEV components, and delivers functional integration of mechanical, electrical, thermodynamic, energy storage systems within hybrid and electric vehicle applications. The group is responsible for executing electrified powertrain development programs, including verification/validation of the identified electrified powertrain system/component requirements.
The specific roles of a Project Engineer I –Electrification, include:
Execute systems engineering principles to integrate electrification technologies within hybrid and electric vehicle powertrain system platforms.
To support the development and verification of the electronic control units for electrified/hybrid powertrain components (e.g. BMS, ICU, ECU, TCU, etc), experience in the use of Hardware in the Loop (HiL) test systems in advantageous.
Skills in both the development of these HiL systems, and utilization of the systems for development and verification
Definition and execution of: functional requirements, system boundaries, component & subsystem interface definition, functional safety, and performance tracking
Assists with FMEA activities
Supports Functional Safety / ISO26262 activities.
Executes engineering activities according to project requirements.
Works on specific phases or aspects of projects such as technical studies, preparation of specifications, development of electrified systems/components, technical plans, powertrain system and component testing, data analysis and validation.
Supports/ensures data quality and writes technical project reports.
Reviews project for compliance with engineering principles, company standards, and customer requirements, including opinions and interpretations.
Coordinates activities concerned with technical development, scheduling, and resolving engineering test issues.
Plans and executes electrification research and development activities.
Supports, organizes, and contributes to customer meetings.
Other duties as required to insure project success.
