What Makes You Stand Out

Other areas of experience or interest that will help us place you on the right team include:

  • Technical experience relating to the design and development electric drive systems.
  • Work experience in component development of electric machines, power electronics, connectors and conductors.
  • Knowledge of EPDP sub-process areas broader than product design. Examples include safety and compliance, manufacturing, customer support, supply management, and marketing.
  • Experience mentoring engineers, interns, EDPs .
  • Knowledge of vehicle systems interfacing with electric drives. Examples include diesel engines, gearboxes, vehicle controllers, hydraulic lubrication, and water-glycol cooling.
  • Advanced technical degree in electric drive field.
  • Experience with vehicle platform engineering (examples include tractors, combines, crop care).

Education (or equivalent work experience)

  • Ideally you will have a Bachelor’s degree in electrical or mechanicalengineering and/or related discipline(s).  Master’s degree in electrical or mechanical strongly desired.
