Systems Engineer

  • Location: UK Engineering Center

 

If you enjoy working with a great team of engineers who design products that enhance the drive-ability of electric vehicles, we may have the job for you!

Curtis Instruments UK, Ltd is currently recruiting for a Hardware Development Engineer for its UK Engineering Center (UKEC), located in the North East of England.

As the Systems Engineer, you will own the technical architecture of EV systems.  This role entails gathering requirements, creating design specifications, reviewing design, and participation in the verification process. The ideal person will enjoy managing many stakeholders as they pay close attention to market needs, safety regulations, system behavior, and development lifecycle.

In addition your responsibilities will include:

  •  Working with the customer to agree a set of customer requirements for a project. These customer requirements must then be captured as a set of internal systems requirements.
  •  Ensuring the correct product is designed, one that meets but does not exceed customer expectations and needs.

  •  Working closely with the design teams, hardware, software and mechanical, to ensure they are clear about the product they are designing and how they ensure compliance of their design to the requirements of that design.

  • Working closely with project management to ensure projects follow an agreed product development cycle, one that allows traceability and validation of compliance. This traceability must be robust to the scrutiny of both customers and external bodies if the likes of ISO26262 are applicable.

  •  Working closely with the validation engineers, not just at the validation stage, but also at the requirements definition stage to ensure they are prepared for and capable of testing and validating the functional and system requirements of the design. 

    You will also be involved in:

  • Customer interface to agree customer requirements and capture system requirements.
  • Setup projects within a requirements capture framework.
  • Manage customer, and/or external bodies audits that demonstrate project compliance to initial requirements.
  • Work with design teams to agree and capture technical requirements that the design needs to meet.
  • Support FMEA process and develop DFMEA for recording potential failure modes and planned corrective actions.
  • Ensure suitable test methods are captured and traceability is maintained between requirements, test methods and test results.
  • Work with validation engineers at beginning of v-cycle to ensure agreed requirements are testable.
  • Apply solid technical understanding, critical reasoning and a structured approach to solving problems in familiar and unfamiliar domains.
  • Ensure that projects are captured, maintained and managed within the requirements capture environment.
  • Lead problem resolution, tracking and provide feedback on status to tracked problems.

We are interested in hearing from you if you possess the following: 

  • Degree or equivalent in an engineering discipline, and 7 plus years’ experience in systems engineering.

  • A well-established understanding of the current trends in systems engineering and product development cycles, especially when applied to electric vehicles, on or off-road.

  • Experience of designing complex system requirements, ideally as it relates to motor/vehicle control, automotive applications, timing techniques, control algorithm design and simulation.

  • A proven record of capturing customer requirements, and translating these into system level requirements.

  • A proven record of dissemination of system level requirements into a set of functional and technical requirements.

  • Excellent product knowledge with EV market and a proven record of driving product development through a ‘v-cycle’ development environment.

  • Experience of working with validation engineers to ensure initial requirements are achievable and testable.

  • Experience of using requirements capture tools, and ensuring traceability of requirements, test methods and test results.

  • Understanding of power electronics for electric vehicles.

  • Some understanding of on-road functional safety and ISO26262

  • Awareness of good engineering practice and methodology.
