Our team is responsible for the mechanical design and development of a vehicle’s electrical ’nervous’ system, called wiring harnesses, particularly bumpers and tailgate harnesses.
A position is now available as a 1st Harness Design Engineer to help us define and develop our future galvanic electrical structure. The engineer’s responsibility is to design and develop the harnesses located within the bumpers and tailgate area.
The job entails mechanically routing or physically connecting electrical components with wiring bundles, fulfilling numerous requirements and guidelines from Electrical performance, EMC, and ensuring that the end product is of high quality, can be manufactured by suppliers, and assembled with ease vehicle assembly plants.
The work includes, but is by no means limited to, the design and development of virtual harness models, creating corresponding 2D/3D drawings for specification, coordinating with suppliers making sure that they deliver top quality harnesses manufactured based on the design, as well as, verification of harnesses to make sure that the solutions work robustly as intended.
Working in a highly effective team, you strive to continually develop yourself and the team; you contribute to developing new ways of working to be at the forefront of the industry.
Some of your main responsibilities:
• Initiate, lead and drive the design and development of wiring harness under the team’s responsibility
• Perform investigations and verification of harnesses to reach reliability, cost, and performance in the electrical system
• Be part of team efforts to develop solutions across platforms
Proven technical skills and experience within the area of Design of Mechanical installation, materials included in the electrical distribution system, and vehicle functions supported by these harnesses. including the manufacturing process and complexity of the wire harness.
