You will collaborate with other designers (mechanical, electrical and thermal), software and firmware developers, hardware designers, and project management to generate detailed requirements, create concepts, evaluate different options, construct the electrical design, assist in the realization of a prototype and testing, and implement improvements. You also contribute to build on the “electrical design” competence within the company, by bringing in experience and knowledge from electrical engineering. You will report to the Project Manager.

Your activities and responsibilities will contain:

• Determine the detailed electrical system requirements, including safety regulations and certifications;
• Design electrical parts based on requirements;
• Construct electrical schematics and wiring diagrams;
• Simulate and test electrical designs;
