R&D Hardware development consists of requirement management, hardware design, design reviews, prototype build and functional verification. Besides meeting the functional requirements non-functional requirements such as cost, quality and time target shall be met. Work processes and associated tools are provided and the expectation is that processes are followed and provided tools are used unless other agreements are made.
Independently perform various engineering duties requiring the exercise of judgment and application of standard engineering principles and practices, towards set goals. Plan, conduct or coordinate a range of complex engineering activities encompassing one or more engineering disciplines. Conduct or coordinate complex analyses, advanced technical studies and develop recommendations based on sound engineering practices and business considerations as well as potentially legal and other agency requirements.
Minimum requirements of education and experience:

• Another technical degree with more than 15 years of work experience within relevant field.
• Working command of the English language.
• To analyze product requirements, break them down and specify them to meet customers' expectations of high quality and safety.
• To capture these requirements in specifications while leaving freedom for optimization to our hardware suppliers.
• Develop new HW modules together with partners (ODMs): technical requirement, HW design, design review (FMEA, DFT, EMC, etc.), testing, verification, validation, and documentation.
• Lead or contribute to HW systems integration, EMC, electrical safety and type test, and NPI (New Product Introduction) activities.
• Maintain existing HW modules (Cost Cuts, EOL, Production Support).
• Lead or contribute to HW development projects within an international matrix organization (Hardware, Firmware, Software, Test, Supply Chain, EMS, Quality, and Production teams).
• Contribute to continuous improvement of our ways of working.
• University degree (Bachelor or Master) in Electrical/Electronics Engineering or equivalent.
• At least 6 years of experience in HW Development, preferably with agile and lean methodologies.
