What to Expect

As a Senior Design for Reliability Engineer focusing on high voltage power electronics systems, you will play a key role in designing reliability into Tesla Energy's high voltage energy conversion systems. This role follows the reliability lifecycle of the product from concept to design, development testing/analysis, manufacturing, and field operation to design-in confirm and grow exceptional reliability at every stage. You will investigate failures through physical testing of residential and industrial energy systems (DCDC, DCAC power converters) to accurately predict the system's robustness and optimize product reliability while accelerating Tesla's next-gen products' time to market.

What You'll Do

  • Strong understanding of Design for Reliability
  • Experience with Physics of Failure
  • Perform reliability testing for Industrial & Residential energy power converters.
  • Determine component/system level test solutions that optimize for product reliability and durability, DFMEA-based risk mitigations, test team resources, and program schedules.
  • Execute independently Tesla energy product, subsystem, and component-level reliability power cycling tests of switching converters such as new semiconductor technologies, integrated circuits, capacitors, transformers, etc.
  • Conduct test data analysis, clearly communicate test results, and collaborate with design and reliability engineers to resolve issues detected in testing.
  • Design and implement next generation hardware test systems and setups to facilitate reliable design characterization and accelerated life testing.
  • Procure and develop required test equipment, instrumentation, and data acquisition systems to enhance creative component and product level reliability testing.
  • Facilitate failure analysis to understand the root cause and drive resolution for failures originating in testing.
  • Continuously drive design risk burndown to ensure product design is reliable and durable.
  • Ability to collaborate cross-functionally with design, reliability, and manufacturing engineers to suggest design and/or process improvements and address reliability & durability issues based on understanding of failure root causes.
  • Capability and willingness to train technicians/interns to operate and troubleshoot test systems to optimize the workload.
  • Comply with safety policies and regulations.
  • What You'll Bring

  • BS/MS degree in Electrical Engineering, or a related engineering discipline.
  • 3-10 years of hands-on experience in power electronics hardware design, design validation, hardware testing, mechanical system reliability, and durability testing.
  • Knowledge of programming in scripting languages for test automation and data analysis/post-processing.
  • Experience specifying sensors for test instrumentation and utilizing data acquisition systems.
  • Experience pro-actively owning and delivering test engineering projects within accelerated validation timelines.
  • Excellent written and verbal communication as well as organization and documentation skills.
  • Experience working safely with high voltage equipment.
  • Proven ability to develop reliability and durability test setups, including environmental, mechanical, and electrical stress testing, highly preferred.
  • Preferred to have experience of common automotive communication protocols (CAN, Ethernet)
  • From this employer
