Location: 

Auburn Hills, MI, US

Division:  US-Corporate (COR)
Req ID:  48860

Overview

We are looking for a highly self-motivated individual who is ready to take on a technology development and innovation role. The candidate should possess good attention to detail, good mentorship ability, be creative, and possess good time management skills. This position is for the advanced systems and software engineering organization and involves modeling, simulation, analysis and verification, of motion control systems, and enforcing the technology development process for various technical projects from research through to production implementation. This position allows the candidate to assist in advancing the motor control technology roadmap that both supports the existing Nexteer product line and also enables expansion for the next generation products. The candidate will also be responsible for coordinating cross-functional projects with multiple technical groups within the organization, support the organization for all areas of motor control development and develop new motion control system algorithms individually. 

 

Description

  • Responsible for analysis, modeling and design of control systems involved in motion control products.
  • Design and optimize simultaneous system performance goals through requirements flow down. Understand and create system and subsystem specifications.
  • Coordinating technical projects pertaining to electric drive systems (motor control and power electronics) with cross-organizational teams.
  • Enforcing the technology development process for technical projects from research through to production implementation.
  • Calibration, testing and validation of motion control system requirements as well as diagnosing and correcting deficiencies in designs and prototypes.
  • Effectively integrates all aspects of a design through the use of multi-disciplinary engineering.
  • Stays abreast of new technology and recent developments and trends in the research and academic arena related to motion control technologies, including servomechanisms, electric motor drives and power converter control systems.
  • Provides technical leadership for projects incorporating complex electromechanical (mechatronic) systems.
  • Assists in maintaining cost controls through development of cost optimal system designs and architectures.

 

Job Requirements
