Job Description:

Description:The Senior Electrical System Engineer (SESE) will work as a member of the research and development team in the design, development, testing and integration of electro-mechanical, thermal and optical sub-systems into new, innovative diagnostic products. The SESE will apply best practice development strategy and advanced technical concepts to solve complex problems, distilling them down to effective product offerings which strike the balance of functionality and usability. The SESE will be guided by a thorough stage gate development process and be expected to resolve complex technical challenges that arise during product development. The SESE will work with a global team within the Veterinary Medicine Research and Development (VMRD) organization, in close collaboration with cross functional teams, including Product Engineers, Quality Representatives, Manufacturing, Purchasing, and Suppliers, under the direction of VMRD leadership. The person in this position will often coordinate/influence the design efforts of other engineers and developers during a project, although no specific supervisory responsibilities are attached to the job.A SESE owns primary design responsibility from concept to the completion of the launch phase. The SESE will assist the Product Engineering team ensuring product user requirement specification and performance is met while scaling the product for launch. This will ensure that the operations team is successful in manufacturing readiness, managing supplier readiness for supplied parts, initial install/implementation oversight in customer facilities, and product support (issue resolution) after launch.The Senior Electrical System Engineer (SESE) has a wide variety of responsibilities, including: Responsible for the system level conceptual design & development process through completion of the functional prototype phase milestone of the stage gate process. Also participates in ensuring that designs can be implemented into a producible/viable product, in a support role, starting at the final development phase. Grow and maintain technical knowledge with advancing technology related to technology and product development of in-vitro diagnostic devices. Design components, including system level electro-mechanical solutions and system level electrical requirements. Work with Global Manufacturing Services to consider high volume assembly process in design concepts (ie. Design for Manufacturability). This role would have primary responsibility of the hardware teams interface to the software team; requiring coordination of hardware/software partitioning architecture, design discussions, and oversight/coordination of integration for complete functionality of the system. A working knowledge of scripting (eg. Python) to perform testing and debugging. Design and development of all electro-mechanical and thermodynamic control sequences required by product requirements, while understanding the interface to electrical control systems and underlying biological process needs. Creation of algorithms to control the functional performance of systems. Prepare documentation for stage gate development activities and efforts. Develop and implement mechanical, electrical, and system concept design, perform sensitivity analysis, timing analysis, or other design analysis. Assessment of system level risks, and proposing, evaluating and implementing mitigations. Ensure designs meet and exceed product specifications, regulatory requirements, and international standards. Proficient in communicating complex technical situations in an understandable way. Work cross functionally in a global organization, deploy engineering best practices in the context of a stage-gate development process, and navigate satisfying product technical specifications as prescribed by customer and market requirements. This position would be responsible/co-own the hardware/software integration and bring-up activities. Participate in system engineering for complex electromechanical/thermodynamic/optical systems to define product specifications and controls interactions of each system. Coordinate problem solving of design issues. Extensive interaction with suppliers in design, analysis and other technical liaison requirements. As required, produce detailed drawings, BOMs and release documents for the above design activities. Seek opportunities to build new product offerings across the portfolio, consistent with our strategy to drive a continuum of care (predict, prevent, detect, and treat) in addressing unmet customer needs.
