Senior Design for Reliability Engineer - Charging and Energy Systems

Company: Rivian Automotive
Location: Palo Alto
Posted on: January 8, 2022

Job Description:

Reliability is at the core of Electric Adventure Vehicles. We are looking for engineers who have experience in bringing products from the early concept stages to production by working closely with design , - validation -and - manufacturing teams -on -solving technical problems along the way to make - the most robust - products. If some of the first things that come to your mind when looking at a complex - design -is "what are the way this thing can fail and how can I make it better?" then, we are looking for you! - Responsibilities

  • As a Design-for-Reliability Engineer focusing on - Charging and Energy Systems , you will play a key role in designing reliability into the - Rivian's - charging and energy -products from concept to production phases. - -
  • You will get to work with a world-class team of design and validation engineers to come up with creative solutions to some of the most challenging engineering problems by thinking outside the box. -
  • Be the resident reliability development expert to the - charging -systems - teams. -
  • Set and communicate Reliability requirements and targets for components, subsystems, and assemblies. -
  • Analyze usage and environmental conditions - in order to -improve requirement setting and testing methods. -
  • Facilitate Design FMEA sessions - to -drive reliable design choices and improve validation test planning. -
  • Participate in design reviews and facilitate the reliability section of the design review. -
  • Develop reliability design guidelines and apply reliability lessons learned to enable continuous improvement. -
  • Devise accelerated test methods to explore design margins and grow reliability efficiently. -
  • Partner with the simulation teams to assess problem areas before physical parts are available for testing. -
  • Specify reliability validation plans for components and subsystems using a physics of failure approach. -
  • Provide guidance on sample size requirements and duration for reliability testing by utilizing reliability statistics. -
  • Facilitate failure analysis to understand root cause and drive resolution for failures originating in testing. -
  • Assess and clearly communicate risk at each phase of the reliability program. -
  • Research failure mechanisms of new technologies and applications. Create designed experiments (DOE) to explore alternative choices on materials, processes, and designs. -
  • Influence supplier selection for higher reliability and provide clear guidance on reliability requirements and demonstration to suppliers. -
  • Collaborate with the Sustaining Reliability Team to develop Ongoing Reliability Testing strategies. -
  • Be the gatekeeper of reliability risk throughout product development and drive activities to successfully burn-down risk before SOP. -
  • Partner with Field Reliability and Failure Analysis to assure reliability lessons learned are incorporated into future products. - Qualifications
    Minimum requirement is - a Bachelor of Science - in -an e ngineering -discipline or equivalent . - Preferably one or more years of industry experience in a reliability engineering role. Level of Role depends on experience and qualifications. In addition, a strong technical background and interest in reliability: - - Experience with facilitating FMEAs and leading cross functional teams. - - Working knowledge of a coding language, preferably Python. - Working knowledge of statistical software for reliability, such as JMP or the - ReliaSoft -suite. - A desire to contribute to a respectful, fun, inclusive and inspiring team culture. - Must have d omain - k nowledge:
    Familiarity with - stationary electrical equipment, preferably high voltage systems. - Physics of failure knowledge - for - high voltage electronics , - distribution systems, or dispensers. - Understanding of - how to assess reliability of a system via analysis and testing approaches . - Bonus: -
    Understanding of Highly Accelerated Testing methods and governing equations for different types of failure mechanisms. - Experience with deploying reliability testing guidelines and inventing new ways of testing. - Good understanding of reliability statistics including Weibull Analysis. - Expertise in -accelerated-life-test development methods for - high - voltage electronics. - Working knowledge of failure analysis techniques such as optical microscopy, SEM, CT, X-Ray, EDS. -
