A Global Company

Experience working with a global network of associates dedicated to providing outstanding customer service

Electrical Lead Engineer (ELE)

The ELE will work primarily with the application engineering team to understand customer product requirements and determine the optimum system architecture solution. The ELE will then create the system block diagrams. The ELE will take ownership of transforming the system block diagrams into detailed electrical schematics and creating the electrical BOM. These preliminary BOM’s will be used for electrical costing in order to respond to customer RFQ’s. In addition to RFQ activities you will interface with the global product development teams (EE, ME and SW) to assist in system bring up and interoperability troubleshooting efforts.

The Electrical Lead Engineer will mainly work from or office in Enschede. The ELE operates in a cross functional team and reports to the Sr. Staff Engineering Manager in the USA with daily tasks coming from the business team in Europe.

Main tasks & responsibilities

-  Based on the technical questions posed by customers, provide guidance and consultation to application engineers

-  Responsible for creation of system block diagrams based off product requirements

-  Translate system block diagrams into component level schematics in order to create a BOM

-  Interface with R&D teams to keep abreast of the continuous evolution of key features as capacitive touch, motion sensing, voice control and RF implementation

-  “Go to” person to lead product / system level bring-up troubleshooting

-  Create training materials and give presentations to the applications engineers so they can understand the technologies well enough to discuss with customers.

Role requirements

-  In depth understanding of microprocessor architecture, memory devices, display technologies (color LCD etc), interface technologies (USB, UART, SPI, I2C), switching power control circuitry, sensors (accelerometers and gyroscopes), IR (infra-red) and analog design.

-  Familiar with wireless design including ASK, FSK, Wi-Fi, RF4CE, ZigBee, iControl, and Bluetooth/BLE technologies.

Additional preferred requirements:

-  BSEE / MSEE / Ph. D. with multiple years of experience

-  Knowledge of products from the system architecture level through component level design

-  Broad background in product development from concept through development into high volume production

-  Working knowledge of common computer tools including MS Office, Excel, Power Point, and ECAD tools such as Schematic Capture, and PCB layout tools.

-  Familiarity with Linux operating system a plus

-  Excellent verbal and written communication skills, interpersonal skills, collaborative skills, cross-functional interface skills, analytical skills and problem solving capabilities are essential.

-  Ability to effectively present technical concepts, ideas and information in terms that both engineers and non-engineers can understand.
