Job Description

High Power Electronics Engineer
KDC are now recruiting for one of the largest clients in the urban air mobility sector. This is an exciting opportunity for an experienced High Power Electronics Engineer to join their company in Germany.
Our Client
Our client is an industry leader in the development of electrical air taxis that take off and land vertically (eVTOL). They plan to offer an air taxi service that can save people time by flying them directly to their destination. Our client is looking for a candidate that is passionate about eVTOL technology that will fit in with the brilliant working culture they are developing.
You will be working on a broad set of electrical system components designing them mechanically and electrically and will challenge the status quo. With your knowledge and experience, you will be involved in the next generation propulsion power electronics and communication electronics.
Your Responsibilities will include:
  • Support and design drive electronics HW and SW development ranging from small adapter boards to highly intelligent hi-power motor drives
  • Design and work on battery management systems
  • Support and design high power electric propulsion for a new type of aircraft
  • Model, simulate and design the drive system from Battery towards ESC with its components
  • Allocate, derive and define technical requirements for electrical propulsion system and subsystem
  • Define, set up and manage necessary test benches in close work with the system engineers
  • Work closely together with the mechanical, aeromechanical and flight control system engineering
  • Challenge old designs, create new ones, from whiteboard drawing to production
  • Support in any test activities conducted by you and the team from lab tests to aircraft flight testing
  • Support the mechanical integration into the vehicle and work hands-on
Required Skills
  • BA, Master's Degree, or PhD in electrical engineering
  • A minimum of 3 years of professional experience in electrical system development (e.g., aerospace, car, and race industry)
  • The idea of working on multiple different projects at the same time, while constantly interacting with mechanics and the software department does not scare you
  • Good knowledge of STM32 microcontrollers and digital electronics in general
  • Experience with (SMD) soldering is crucial
  • E-CAD (ideally Altium designer)
  • In-depth knowledge in prototyping including hands-on mindset
  • Solid knowledge in electrical motor, power electronics, battery and network layout and design
  • Strong experience in the aerospace and/or drone industry
  • Advanced knowledge in test bench setup
  • Strong knowledge in PCB layout, design, and manufacturing
  • Hands-on and creative attitude on electrical aircraft and its systems
 This role includes a full relocation package as well as competitive salary and benefits.
If you want to be part of the exciting journey our client is taking in pioneering the air taxi industry and feel you have the right qualities to aid them in this ambitious undertaking, please do not hesitate to apply.
