Sr. Electrical Engineer – Power Electronics (m/w/d) – Gigafactory Berlin-Brandenburg

Tesla

Responsibilities

Tesla is accelerating the world’s transition to sustainable energy. Revolutionary strategies and products were developed within a few years and successfully launched on a large scale. This is only possible through extraordinary speed, innovation and efficiency. 
The Role
Tesla’s Power Electronics group is looking for a skilled and motivated electrical engineer to design and develop hardware intended to be used in our automotive and energy storage products. 

Requirements

Required
Skills

  • Bachelor or higher degree in Electrical Engineering. 
  • Understanding of power
    electronics topologies (AC/DC, DC/DC & DC/AC).
  • Good understanding of switching
    waveforms, semi-conductor loss mechanisms and experience with loss modeling.
  • Solid
    understanding of the theory and application of magnetics in inductors and
    transformers for high frequency power conversion.
  • Familiar with schematic capture
    and power converter circuit simulation tools.

Preferred Skills

  • Awareness of UL and CE electrical
    safety requirements and EMC requirements relevant to the design of power
    converters.
  • Knowledge in environmental,
    reliability, and safety requirements for Automotive, Industrial &
    Residential applications.
  • Knowledge of basic control
    theory and experience with embedded programming.
  • Relevant hands-on hardware experience in power converter (AC/DC, DC/DC & DC/AC) design.
  • Experience with high voltage power semiconductor selection (IGBTs, Si/SiC/GaN MOSFET’s, and Diodes), design of gate drive and analog/digital sensing circuits.
  • Experience in supervision of PCB layout for minimal stray inductance and capacitance, placement strategies for better manufacturability, power/signal plane definition and EMC optimization.
  • Proficiency with basic EE tools (Oscilloscopes, Network analyzers, Signal Generators etc.).
