  • Work closely with other teams to define interfaces
  • Contact suppliers to research and validate new technologies to be incorporated into aircraft systems. Contribute to design, execution and analysis of acceptance testing at vendors and at Final Assembly
  • Develop test equipment and mock-ups of aircraft low-voltage systems 
  • Minimum Qualifications we are seeking (your Knowledge, Experience, and Abilities):

  • Bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering or similar
  • 3 years of experience in electrical engineering, preferably for aircraft systems
  • Experience with certification of aircraft energy storage (battery) systems, electrical wiring and interconnection systems (EWIS), eVTOL, powered-lift, or other special class aircraft. Experience designing electronics for 14 CFR Part 25 or Part 23 aircraft. Familiarity with some or all of the following: ARP4754, DO-178C, DO-254, IPC221A/B, IEC 60664-1
  • Safety activity experience: FMEA, FHA, PSSA, CMA, SSA
  • Experience with circuit simulation software, especially related to power electronics stability, line/load regulation, control system responses, etc.
  • Strong communication skills, be a proactive team player, comfortable defining own tasks and
