Job Description:


The Electrical Test Engineer III will work on multiple highly complex major projects requiring innovative, original solutions and is expected to plan multiple projects concurrently. The Engineer will lead a group of engineers and will be responsible for budget and manpower estimates. The Engineer will be involved on multiple systems and subsystems of the vehicle with a detailed understanding of how these systems interact. The test engineer will work with a multi-disciplinary group of engineers while learning how to leverage hardware, firmware, and software solutions to validate products to rigorous internal and automotive-industry standards.



  • Engineering responsibility throughout all stages: concept, requirements definition (iterative), prototype, architecture development, vendor selection (support to Supply Chain), design validation and optimization, volume tooling and processes for start of production and production ramp-up. Life-cycle improvements and cost reductions as needed
  • Vehicle Electrical architecture analyze, decide and design: location of any centralized controllers, decisions between centralized and distributed control, functional safety concept development and guiding team members in implementation of the functional safety concept
  • Design, build, instrument, and automate test equipment for mechanical, thermal, and electrical systems.
  • Work together with Design Engineers, Reliability, Regulatory, Quality, and Service to identify failure modes and generate design validation test plans.
  • Collaborate with test technicians to perform component, system, and vehicle validation by simulating realistic and/or accelerated dynamic usage and environmental conditions.
  • Investigate device failures to drive product development and test improvement.
  • Identify and execute DOEs targeting new technologies or critical failures.
  • Interface and simulate complex vehicular systems to validate firmware/hardware interactions.
  • Work closely with suppliers and test labs to plan and track the test progress
