  • Develop magnetic components, typically for power or comms electronics (filters, chokes, transformers, etc)
  • Write the magnetic sections of customer proposals and take ownership of all compliance matrix responses of magnetic aspects of the final product
  • Develop magnetic solutions for products by studying customer requirements, liaising closely with internal and external customers to agree magnetic performance
  • Model magnetic solutions concepts; create representative models and simulations.
  • Create 2D drawings for use in quoting and production; work with the configuration management team, providing support and compliance guidance
  • Support all magnetic aspects of product design reviews
  • Confirm product integrity and performance by developing test plans and procedures for design assurance testing and qualification testing
  • Develop high level manufacturing test plans that can be used by Test Engineers at the manufacturing sites.
  • Provide magnetic design support for product failures, involving collecting, analyzing, and summarizing information and trends in products and then reporting findings to key stakeholders
  • Continued personal, professional and technical development to ensure you remain up-to-date with development in the field.
  • Identify opportunities to improve our products and processes and actively engage in creation and management of the technology roadmap for magnetics
  • Operate effectively and responsively as a team player, providing engineering information to key stakeholders, freely sharing expertise
  • Provide supportive advice, coaching and mentoring technicians and junior engineers
  • Protect product and company reputation by complying with all relevant regulations and standards.
  • Comply with all HSE requirements related to the role and work towards a zero-harm culture
