Senior Electronics Design Engineer – Tesla Energy

Tesla

Responsibilities

The Industrial Energy team designs the eyes, ears, and brains of Tesla’s Energy Storage (Megapack) and Supercharging products. The type of boards designed control the central processing, communications, thermal systems, high voltage safety, and system level components including breakers, contactors, and pyrofuses. The Supercharger and Megapack teams are advancing our designs and need support to help shape the future of vehicle charging and renewable energy integration.

The Industrial Energy team is looking for a skilled and motivated individual to design and develop electronics for use in our Supercharger and Megapack high-power energy storage systems. This individual will collaborate with a cross-functional team of engineers to deliver best-in-class electrical architectures and products.
