Primary focus will be on power electronics, dc-dc converter, analog circuit, and switching power supply design and simulation. Previous experience with this type of power electronics design and simulation is required. The engineer will be responsible for the following: 1) Working with system engineers and management to define requirements. 2) Performing preliminary circuit design, parts selection, design analysis, schematic generation and layout & assembly coordination. 3) Testing assembled designs, supporting system integration, conducting design reviews, and supporting transition to production activities. 4) Leading the technical activities in support of Supplier Management for make/buy recommendations and other technical services. 5) Coordinating engineering support throughout the lifecycle of the product. 6) Planning research projects to develop concepts for future product designs to meet projected requirements.
Recent experience developing and integrating power converter or electric motor control circuitry is required. Experience with Mentor Graphics DXDesigner or equivalent schematic capture tool, Spice or equivalent simulation tool is required. Experience with controls systems and modeling electromechanical systems in MatLab/Simulink or equivalent tool is desired. Design experience of 3-phase motor drive bridge circuits is desired. Other motor control theory education and design experience is also desired but not required. Ability to working with minimal direction is required. Proficiency with standard Microsoft Office applications (Word, Excel, PowerPoint) is required.
## Competencies
General
+ Adaptability
Understands changes in own and others' work and situations; may be asked to explain the logic or basis for change to less experienced employees; actively seeks information about changes affecting own and fellow employees' jobs. Treats changes and new situations as opportunities for learning or growth; focuses on the beneficial aspects of change; speaks positively about the change to fellow interorganizational employees and occasionally to external customers. Quickly modifies behavior to deal effectively with changes in the work environment; readily tries new approaches appropriate for new or changed situations; does not persist with ineffective behaviors.
+ Collaboration
Works effectively and cooperatively with fellow employees, peers from other teams and/or parts of the organization and occasionally external customers; establishes and maintains good working relationships by actively involving others and helping them feel valued, appreciated, and included in discussions. Places higher priority on team and/or organization goals than on own goals. Offers to provide help and/or leadership to other teams and/or employees and occasionally external customers when they need assistance.
+ Communication
Clarifies purpose and importance; stresses major points; follows a logical sequence. Keeps the audience engaged through use of techniques such as analogies, illustrations, humor, an appealing style, body language, and voice inflection. Frames the message in line with audience experience, background, and expectations; uses terms, examples, and analogies that are meaningful to the audience. Seeks input from audience; checks understanding; presents message in different ways to enhance understanding. Uses syntax, pace, volume, diction, and mechanics appropriate to the media being used. Accurately interprets messages from others and responds appropriately.
+ Innovation
Consistently identifies implicit assumptions in the way problems or situations are defined or presented. Sees alternative ways to view or define problems; is not constrained by the thoughts or approaches of work group members, interorganizational employees or external customers. Draws upon multiple and diverse sources (individuals, disciplines, bodies of knowledge) for ideas and inspiration. Combines complex ideas in unique ways or makes connections between disparate ideas; explores different lines of thought. Views situations from multiple perspectives; brainstorms multiple approaches/solutions; examines numerous potential solutions and evaluates each before accepting any. Targets important areas for innovation and develops solutions that address meaningful issues in own work areas and thought the organization.
+ Managing Work
Identifies critical and less critical activities and tasks within own and other work groups; adjusts priorities when appropriate. Ensures that required equipment and/or materials are in appropriate locations so that own and others' work can be done effectively. Allocates own time to complete work; coordinates own and others' schedules to avoid conflicts. Takes advantage of available resources (individuals, processes, departments, and tools) to complete work efficiently. Uses time effectively and rarely allows irrelevant issues or distractions from interfering with work completion.
Technical
+ Electrical Test
Basic - Complete knowledge of electrical test methodology (e.g., stand alone bench, automated, integration laboratory, simulation, functional test), planning, procedures, equipment (e.g., multimeter, oscilloscope, bus analyzer, automated test systems) and result validation criteria (e.g., pass/fail, control limits, tolerances).

Don't Be Fooled

The fraudster will send a check to the victim who has accepted a job. The check can be for multiple reasons such as signing bonus, supplies, etc. The victim will be instructed to deposit the check and use the money for any of these reasons and then instructed to send the remaining funds to the fraudster. The check will bounce and the victim is left responsible.
