Job Description

Tritium is a Brisbane-based technology company whose mission is to offer energy freedom. We do this as a world-leading developer of electric vehicle charging infrastructure that enables the acceptance and growth of e-mobility. Tritium is a fast-growing global company with offices in Brisbane, Los Angeles and Amsterdam.
This position reports directly to the Lead Power Electronics Engineer at Tritium and is based at Murarrie.
As part of the engineering team and reporting into the Lead Power Electronics Engineer in this role you will be responsible for the design and simulation of power electronics and magnetic components and systems.
From an operational and delivery perspective, the Power Electronics & Magnetics Engineer will:

  • Lead specification, design, and development for power electronics and systems design for advanced high voltage, high power inverters and converters.
  • Design, prototype, and develop products via a combination of modelling, implementation, and testing.
  • The specification and selection of power semiconductors, magnetic devices, capacitors, and power drive circuits.
  • You will analyse technology research at the early stages of new product development and assess for factor, fit for purpose as well as DFM & DFA requirements.
  • Implement, integrate, test and debug complicated power electronics components and systems at power levels from 3kW to 500kW.

To be successful in this role you will have extensive experience in Power Electronics and Magnetics. You will have experience across the following:

  • Degree Electrical/Electronic Engineering or Mechatronics.
  • Electronic product design, development and analysis.
  • Deep knowledge of Power electronics, Power Circuit Topologies and Control systems (inverter, DC/DC, IGBTs, MOSFETs, vehicle communication networks including CANbus and associate protocols, signal conditioning and filter circuitry etc.).
  • Power Electronics experience – both at a circuit level and component level - Rectifier circuits, IGBT, MOSFET , Barrier diodes, power conversion devices – magnetics, inductors, rectifiers etc.
  • Product experience may cover – power conversion, independent power systems, high power/high current systems – KV/KW levels, BMS platforms etc.
  • Experience in design for EMC, DFM/DFT considerations as well as design for volume manufacture.
  • Experience using simulation tools for power / frequency / integrity / thermal assessments (MATLAB/Simulink, Simplorer, LTSpice, Maxwell, etc.).
  • Capable of working in a reactive and pressured environment.
  • Good communication, negotiation and project management skills.
  • Process and people focused.
  • Strong attention to detail and analytical problem solver.
  • Ability to work independently not just to find solutions to problems but to also plan, effectively document the analyze the effects on product function, cost, reliability and production.
  • Manage multiple tasks effectively and deliver to tight deadlines.

If you are excited by the prospect of the challenges related to growth, and are ready to roll up your selves in this position, we want to hear from you.
