Electrical Engineer - Design for Manufacturing

Pittsburgh, United States

The Uber Advanced Technology Center is the Pittsburgh division of the elite Uber Engineering Team; a high-performance culture marked by fearlessness and hyper-productivity. We focus on the development of key long-term technologies that advance Uber’s mission of bringing safe, reliable transportation to everyone, everywhere. Our research is primarily in the areas of mapping, vehicle safety, and autonomy. Our team is comprised of world-renowned researchers with decades of experience and we’re looking for superstar engineers who can work harder, faster, and smarter without sacrificing technical excellence.

As an Uber ATC team member, you'll have a direct impact on the innovation of cutting edge technologies. The work you will do will be tested and deployed on real systems, in real-world conditions. The experience you will gain will be unique and unmatched.  Do you dream about changing the world using your passion for science and engineering? Then you should apply to join our team. We are ambitious, engaged and excited about disrupting the transportation industry across the world. We are moving real assets and real people. Our research will make this process safer and more efficient now and in the decades to come.

 

WHAT YOU'LL DO:

  • Focus on implementing physical electrical systems with an emphasis on design for manufacturing (DFM)
  • Design wire and cable harnesses in prototype vehicles using ECAD tools
  • Research and prototype automotive connection systems
  • Support testing team with your designs to make sure they pass the grade in an automotive environment
  • Author specifications and implement industry standards for automotive wiring integration
  • Develop and foster relationship with Tier 1 harness and value add suppliers 
  • Ensure your electrical designs have top notch documentation 
  • Engage other design engineers as needed to implement changes
  • Work as a part of the integration team to support your designs

 

WHAT WE'RE LOOKING FOR:

  • Minimum 2 years of experience at a Tier 1, or automotive OEM
  • Minimum BS in electrical engineering or a related field, or equivalent work experience
  • Strong technical depth in automotive electrical systems
  • Experience in ECAD development tools for logical schematics and harness layout
  • Demonstrated ability to work in a complex technical project under timing constraints
  • Results oriented, with experience delivering/launching technical projects to production
  • Demonstrated ability to work with outside companies to deliver joint projects
  • Effective oral and written communication skills
  • Affinity for working in a dynamic, global, and technology-focused environment
  • Self-starter with ability to multi-task and deal with time pressure in an unstructured environment

 

Here are the kinds of skills we're looking for:

  • Fast learner. We’re looking for team members who thrive on applying their knowledge, learning new technologies and don’t believe in one-size-fits-all solutions. You should be able to adapt easily to meet the rapid pace of a rapidly evolving research, development, and testing environment.
  • Fearlessness. You think a working proof-of-concept is the best way to make a point. You strive on proving that speed and quality are not conflicting; that you can achieve both at the same time.
  • Versatility. In addition to having an intimate knowledge of core engineering fields, you understand how all the pieces fit together into integrated systems, and how they impact performance.
  • Passion. You feel ownership over everything you ship; you'd never call code or design "released" until you’re confident it’s correct. You pride yourself on efficient monitoring, strong documentation, and proper test coverage.
  • A team player. You believe that you can achieve more on a team — that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. You rely on others' candid feedback for continuous improvement.
  • Design and business acumen. You understand requirements beyond the written word and how your technical contributions will influence the viability of future products. Whether you’re working on a software library used by other developers, a sensor to be retrofitted on a test vehicle, or a printed circuit to be mass produced, the other members of the team can depend on the quality of your work to rapidly advance our goals.

PERKS:

  • Employees are given Uber credits every month.
  • The rare opportunity to change the world such that everyone around you is using the product you built. We’re not just another social web app, we’re moving real people and assets and reinventing transportation and logistics globally.
  • Sharp, motivated co-workers in a fun office environment.

BENEFITS (U.S.)

  • 401(k) plan, gym reimbursement, paid company holidays and Uber credits.
  • Full medical/dental/vision package to fit your needs.
  • Unlimited vacation policy; work hard and take time when you need it.

 

We're bringing Uber to every major city in the world. We need brains and passion to make it happen and to make it happen in style.
