Test Engineer in Tesla’s Drive Systems Engineering Team is responsible for design, fabrication, and validation of test platforms used for sub-system testing of the drive unit. You will be part of the team that develops and executes world-class drive units for performance, cost, and manufacturability. Components requiring test platforms include gears, bearings, couplers, differentials, rotor, stators, and lubrication systems and integration of these components.
Design mechanical and electrical hardware and write software required to test the different electromechanic systems of the drive unit
Selection of test and automation systems, sensors, data acquisition and I/O devices (force and torque transducers, temperature controllers, current and power meters, PLCs, etc)
Coordinate with facilities to permit and install equipment and utilities
Develop test profiles for equivalent damage using cumulative damage models such as Rain-flow algorithm, Miner’s rule, Archard’s law, Creep, and thermal degradation
Coordinate test plans with design engineers and run equipment
Document operation of test equipment and train technicians to run equipment
Experience designing electrical hardware and software, with an emphasis on safety for the operator and the product
Experience working with CAN, LIN, Serial communication. XNET experience desired.
Experience with software tools Python, Matlab, NI LabView and Veristand / Test Stand. Experience with SQL/MySQL desired
Familiarity with electronic circuits. Experience with high voltage environments is desired but not required
Committed to Tesla’s mission to accelerate the world's transition to sustainable energy
