Systems Engineer for LV Power Delivery

Santa Clara Valley (Cupertino), California, United States


Role Number:200451145
Seeking an enthusiastic systems engineer to own and drive the development and functional integration of the low voltage power distribution and delivery systems for the Special Projects Group. This engineer will be responsible for taking a complex power delivery architecture for a safety-critical and driving the system integration from design through validation and will be in a position to heavily influence the broader system architecture. The LV Power team owns the design and integration of the low voltage (< 60V) power system, starting from the system architecture and carrying responsibilities through to system validation. This role places a strong emphasis on cross-functional leadership and an ability to drive team consensus on technical decisions that best serve the end goal. Strong communication skills and comfort with presenting technical content to a large group are a must. The ideal candidate is someone with a background in systems engineering, functional safety processes, and power systems, and who is eager to apply those skills to the unique challenge of building high reliability systems in an agile, fast-paced environment. Individuals who are self-motivated to develop unique tools to streamline existing processes are highly desired.
