We are hiring a Senior Power Electronics Engineer

< Back to overview

The future is wireless – IPT sets the standard. Inductive Power Transfer (IPT) is the technology for a seamless and efficient power transfer, no matter what industrial or e-mobility application!

We are looking for a senior power electronics engineer to work within our engineering department on the electrical and electronic power development of wireless power supply systems. This work includes calculating and simulation software for the principal design of the power supply system. You’ll be responsible for designing the power electronics concept and the individual circuit boards, including the successful implementation of the electrical requirements into the final design, making sure that all customer requirements are met by design. By aligning in an early stage of the development process with magnetic design engineering, you ensure that the final product performs reliably and efficiently.

To be successful in this role, you should be experienced in power electronic circuits and principle medium frequency design principles. Together with the supply management, you will be liaising with the component suppliers on the best design for external parts and communicating clearly towards your peers and managing the final design. As a senior, you are also coaching and supporting your team of power electronics engineers and the technical staff. We also expect you to organize your development milestones, write reports, and document the design and mechanical components.

Ultimately, you’ll make sure we use innovative technologies that maximize our productivity and help our company grow.
