  1. Develop, refine, and simplify system level requirements and translate them into circuits (on- or off-PCB) that integrate with our system architecture.
  2. Lead multi-disciplinary root-causing efforts to identify design problems and roll out effective solutions.
  3. Deliver cost-optimized designs for battery storage systems and EV charging stations that are manufacturable by our in-house team or by our suppliers, including architectures, system wiring diagrams, and PCB schematics and layouts.
  4. Contribute to documentation and testing for regulatory certification, and create or revise designs that comply with safety and electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) requirements.
  5. Identify electronic part sources that reduce supply chain dependency and system cost.
  6. Specify and integrate commercial power and control components such as transformers, relays, and power supplies into purpose-built control systems.
  7. Create ISO 9001-compliant electronic manufacturing test systems.
  8. Collaborate with our site implementation team to enable efficient, compliant, and reliable charging stations.

Qualifications and Preferred Skills:
