Working at Lightyear is a unique experience. You get the opportunity to work for a company with a pure and meaningful mission. A mission that will make a positive and lasting impact on future generations.
What will you do as a Sr. Power Electronics Engineer?
At Lightyear we have several domains which are basically teams within a particular field of expertise. While being part of the Power Electronics domain you'll be allocated to particular (sub-)systems of our current and future projects.
As a Sr. Power Electronics engineer you’ll be working on several multidisciplinary (sub-)systems in order to design & integrate cutting-edge Power Electronics components. For instance, you could work on an aircooled 40kW SiC motor inverter to drive the in-wheel motors (which we build from scratch!) or you’ll conceptually work on modelling resonant power converters for MPPT’s.
Within this scope, you will be involved in the whole design process. Starting off with research on the right topology and ending up with full integration into Lightyear One. Obviously, you’ll be part of all the steps in between, such as deciding on architecture, design of the electronics, setting up the technical product documentation and working on prototypes by executing tests in our Electronics Lab (where we have our own motor-test-bench set-up). A lot of tests and verification processes can be done in-house.
All and all, as a Sr. Power Electronics Engineer at Lightyear you’re able to truly work on cutting-edge Power Electronics components as part of a complex and highly efficient system. Within that context, you’ll do whatever it takes.
What do we expect from a Sr. Power Electronics Engineer at Lightyear?
In order to succeed in the dynamic world of Lightyear pro-activity, professionalism, communication and adaptability are crucial. In addition, we are looking for people with an ambitious attitude who learn from the past (tried and tested) and who strive to set new standards when needed. Therefore, you bring along:
On a personal level you are someone who is accurate, influential, communicative, logical, perfectionistic, positive and systematic.
What can you expect from Lightyear?
In addition to a challenging role we also offer:
At Lightyear we are building an electric car that charges itself. From our experience at Solar Team Eindhoven we know this is only possible starting from scratch. At Lightyear we bring together a multidisciplinary team of highly motivated engineers, designers and visionaries to challenge the status quo. You can join us!
