Under the direction of the Instrument Plant Manager and/or Engineering Manager, the Senior Electrical Engineer provides technical support of the projects, functions, and strategic objectives of the Manufacturing Engineering Department, concentrating on: manufacturing engineering support for new product development, the mitigation of obsolete components through alternate sourcing, alternate components or re-design activities; and failure mode analysis and corrective action of electronic and electrical assemblies and instruments. Additional duties would typically include: engineering support for instrument and sub-assembly production and testing; design and development of test fixtures, creation and modification of test and assembly procedures, and execution of validation protocols.
1. Develop and execute solutions for obsolete components, including alternate sourcing, alternate components or PC board re-design and re-layout. Develop and execute substantiative testing and verification, and documentation activities.
2. Design, build, test, and document simple to moderately complex manufacturing assembly fixtures, test tooling, and test fixtures.
3. Analyze field and/or manufacturing failures of electronic and electrical components, sub-assemblies, and instruments, and provide corrective and preventative solutions and actions.
4. Participate as the Operations Electrical Engineering representative in departmental and external project teams. Provide engineering support to assembly and test personnel.
5. Follow design, quality, and safety guidelines based on GMP, FDA, and ISO guidelines and related BD Quality and Safety Standards and Practices.
6. Travel could be 5 to 10 %, depending on projects.
Required Knowledge / Skills:
Thorough knowledge of: electrical and electronic engineering principles, through hole and SMT PC board design and manufacturing methodology; electrical and mechanical measurement and analysis devices. Must possess basic technical writing skills. Familiar with linear and switching power supplies, motor drivers, data conversion techniques, and opto-electronic devices. Computer literate: familiar with the use of word processing, database and spreadsheet applications. Familiarity with engineering design and drafting tools, such as ORCAD, PADS, AutoCad, SolidWorks, or similar design and layout tools. Familiarity with PLD and FPGA devices and programming is a definite plus.
Typically requires five or more years overall experience as an engineer in a manufacturing engineering or design engineering environment engaged in the activities described above.
Must have a minimum of a Bachelor's degree preferably in electronic/electrical engineering or similar.
