Digital Power Electrical Engineer

Accelerating the mass adoption of electric vehicles.
GBatteries is pioneering technology which enables ultra-fast charging of Li-ion batteries without compromising battery life, and without changing the battery’s chemistry or manufacturing process.

Our mission is to accelerate the mass adoption of electric vehicles to reduce global greenhouse gas emissions. Since being established in 2014, and with the only demonstrated technology capable of charging off-the-shelf lithium-ion batteries as quickly as filling a tank of gas, we’ve grown rapidly and are working with some of the largest automotive manufacturers in the world.

About the role
We're looking for a Digital Power Electrical Engineer experienced in the design of digital control loops using FPGA or MCU platform to work on complex projects at the cutting-edge of battery charging technology. You will be working in an ambitious team of engineers and scientists to develop a reference design implementation solution for our adaptive battery management system. Tasks will include HDL or low-level firmware programming, part selection, PCB schematic and layout development, prototyping and fabrication.

Your responsibilities

  • HDL or low-level firmware digital power loop programming
  • Design and troubleshoot electronic circuits including component selection, schematics capture and printed circuit board layout
  • Generate required documentation for testing, manufacturing, product specification etc.
  • Take ownership in ensuring success of product from concept to production release
  • Assure product quality by developing and executing test plans to verify production equipment prior to release
  • Provide theoretical and hands on support to all departments
  • Provide guidance and training to individuals as requested by management

Preferred qualifications

  • Digital feedback control
  • Linear and Switching power supply design expertise
  • Experience interfacing with PMIC for Li-ion battery charging
  • Expert in analog and power electronics
  • Micro controller designing and programming experience (C, C++)
  • FPGA design and programming experience (Verilog, VHDL)
  • Test Automation and data processing (Python, Matlab)
  • Hands on soldering skills

Education and Experience

  • Bachelor's degree in engineering
  • 5+ years experience of analog and power electronics design
