THE PURPOSE: Thermal Management engineer is responsible for providing the system that collects and rejects all thermal energy from the heat-producing components on electric vehicle. This system consists of the primary heat rejection devices as well as the coolant distribution.

THE ROLE:

  • Lead the design, testing, and procurement thermal management system
  • Collaborate with all subsystems on their heat generation and cooling needs; including the motor and power electronics on electric vehicle
  • Best practices to deliver the thermal management system and its test bench
  • Own the coolant network design and implementation, including routing, valves, heat exchangers, and primary heat rejection and storage devices.
  • Design, procure, and test various technology development on test bench

THE CANDIDATE:

  • Strong intuition and knowledge within thermal system designs, from first principles concepts through design of production hardware
  • Ability to thrive in a technically uncertain environment
  • Willingness to work in a fast-paced engineering environment, make decisions, and effectively lead tasks and meet challenging deadlines

REQUIREMENTS:

  • B.S. or M.S. in Mechanical, Aerospace, or related engineering field
  • Familiarity with thermal system modelling software (Simulink or Kuli)
  • Strong experience designing, testing, and building a thermal management component or system

PREFERRED REQUIRED EXPERIENCE:

  • Flow network hardware and control experience within an automotive, or electric vehicle application
  • Familiarity with thermal system modelling software (Simulink, SimScape, GT-Suite, or similar)
  • Experience with validation and verification of thermal systems using laboratory and in-field testing
  • Experience with high-voltage battery cooling for electric vehicle or energy storage applications
  • Experience with the design and implementation of a production-level multi-component thermal management system and associated thermal limitations
  • Familiarity or experience with multi-phase thermal management technologies (heat pipes, pumped two-phase, vapor compression heat pumps, phase change materials)
  • Experience designing and building test rigs and initial product builds, including pumps, flow control devices, and heat exchangers
  • Experience with thermal energy storage or industrial refrigeration equipment
