Your mission

As Performance & Validation Electrical Engineer you will be responsible for all electrical aspects of the performance of our products. You will:

  • Test and analyze the quality of motor control, including commutation, PWM generation and current control as well as the inverter hardware and current sensors related to that
  • Create the test methods, build up and improve the lab environment and tools
  • Come up with ideas for future product features and improvements and prototype/test them on the dynamometer.


Given all the excellence and passion that our engineers have designed into our products in their respective fields, we as team Product Performance care about “the whole thing”: Making hardware, software, motors, encoders, gears, loads, mechanics work together seamlessly as a system. We close the control loop as a whole, in terms of concepts, analysis, simulations and verification testing. All this is to provide our customers with the speed, torque, cycle times, precision and dynamic frequency responses they need in their most demanding applications.

In this highly interdisciplinary environment we are looking for a Performance & Validation Electrical Engineer with particular expertise in electrical machines, inverters and testing / validation.
