Position: Sr. Electrical Design Engineer

Location: Buffalo, NY

Position Overview

You will plan and conduct efforts requiring judgment in the independent evaluation, selection, and substantial adaptation and modification of standard engineering techniques, procedures, and criteria. Typically, the Design Engineer devises new approaches for the problems encountered.

The Sr. Electrical Design Engineer is a key contributor to the analysis, conceptual design, development, and testing of complex control hardware used on Military and Commercial aircraft and associated test equipment. The products of company generally are unique for each customer. Therefore, most new applications require a special, tailored design, even though adaptation of existing designs always should be considered where appropriate.

In the early stages of a new program, the project team will consult with the customer, establish the problem statement, conceive of potential hardware solutions to the problem, often through extensive trade studies, and then create a successful technical proposal. This phase is critical in that it establishes the basis for future design, and for contract negotiations. Under the technical direction of the Engineering Manager, Section Head or the team’s lead engineer, the Sr. Electrical Design Engineer will then guide the evolution of the conceptual design, technical project planning, detail design, and development testing. This requires some travel and the participation in presentations to customers.
