Electronic Systems Engineer
£Competitive + 27 Days + Bonus + Pension
Working closely with the product design manager and multi-disciplinary teams of hardware and software design engineers to take a project through from design concept to production
Coordinating between the engineering disciplines within electronics to define the electronics system architecture solution and how it translates into design specifications for the individual hardware and software development teams. The role will require you to take ownership of Systems Engineering activities for the electronics sub-system throughout the project lifecycle.
- Requirements capture & management: capture internal customer & end user needs and distil into functional and non-functional requirements. Working closely with the ‘New Product Innovations Team’ to analyse and translate the embryonic product needs into Electronics System requirements.
- System Architecture definition: from the agreed system requirements support the definition of candidate system architectures. Participate in trade-off studies and decision analysis to arrive at an agreed functional & physical architecture solution.
- Manage the derivation & flow-down to lower-level subsystem and module level component requirements.
- Use a model based systems engineering (MBSE) approach to capture the product use cases, requirements, system architecture, behaviours and interfaces.
Support the hardware and software engineering teams in the integration of modules, subsystems and functions to form the final working product.
Support wireless connectivity aspects of the product related to Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. Work closely with the User Interface team and the internet connectivity teams to identify and specify control and data interactions with the Cloud and mobile app.
Work closely with safety and reliability teams to ensure the product meets all applicable standards.
