PDS Tech is currently seeking an Electrical/Instrumentation Design Engineer - Systems Test for our client in Santa Cruz, CA
I am looking for an Electrical Engineer that is able to do detailed electrical design work, primarily ground based, for high voltage and low voltage systems.  Also, should have a strong understanding of systems engineering.

We are seeking a highly organized, passionate individual to join our system testing team. As part of this team, you will support the design and execution of structural, environmental, and functional tests of flight-critical components and subsystems for VTOL electric aircraft. You will also be directly involved in systems integration testing for the S4 aircraft. The data collected during these tests will inform the company’s hardware design efforts and pave the way to production-ready hardware. Our team is made up of extremely talented, hardworking, proactive, and hands-on individuals, operating in a very fast-paced and rewarding environment. We are looking to expand this team with like-minded individuals looking to make a mark in the transportation industry.

  • Perform test and electrical/instrumentation equipment requirements definition, test equipment selection, test equipment detailed design for the S4 systems integration test lab
  • Be responsible for the electrical design and instrumentation design portions of our system test venues, from conceptual design to detailed engineering and drawings
  • Use proprietary or open-source tools or frameworks to design Hardware In the Loop (HIL) tests for software, electrical, mechanical, and energy components of the aircraft system
  • Create test setups for aircraft hardware by working closely with the mechanical, electrical, energy systems, and software teams, to capture the nuances of aircraft components, subsystem architectures, and operating conditions, and turn them into representative tests that will allow for validation of component and system designs
  • Develop formal test procedures, instrumentation guidelines, test fixture assembly/installation and any other necessary tools to allow for repeatable testing of specimens as discussed
  • Act as a test engineer on the environmental, integrated system and functional test rigs to validate design and system response against established benchmarks
  • Analyze data collected during the aforementioned tests to generate reports to provide quantifiable feedback to the engineering teams that will allow them to optimize their designs
