Electronics Project Engineer - Resident Engineer

Sweden (Gothenburg/Stockholm)

Rate: Open

Contract duration: Maximum 3 years

This is an exciting contract opportunity for an experienced customer facing engineer to help lead the development and integration of electronic systems for a Swedish automotive OEM.

NOTE: Applicants must be based in Sweden (ideally Gothenburg or Stockholm) and have experience of working in a commercial/industrial environment in Sweden

You will be working as a Resident Engineer onsite with clients in Sweden and will interface regularly with the UK product development team.

Having a background as an Applications engineer, Resident engineer, Lead engineer or Project engineer within an electronics product development environment would be most suitable but automotive experience is a must.

The role is a technical engineering position and part of the engineering team. It is not a project managing role.

The role would certainly suit a well-rounded resident engineer/project engineer that understands electronics engineering well and perhaps has some mechanical engineering knowledge. Good customer facing, problem-solving and conflict resolution skills are a must.

The contract may go on up to 3 years as you see the systems through concept, design, integration and into manufacture.

Skills/Knowledge Required:

  • A degree or equivalent in a relevant subject (eg electronics engineering, automotive electronics)
  • Experience gained within an automotive product development environment
  • Experience of working in Sweden ideally within automotive, commercial vehicles or similar.
  • Excellent organisation skills coupled with customer facing and project engineering experience
  • A good appreciation of systems level product engineering (systems incorporating electronics, mechanical and software)
  • Understanding and ideally first-hand experience of product integration, verification and validation (perhaps use of CANalyzer or other diagnostic tools)
  • Good problem-solving skills
  • Able to support the customer with product integration and test plans
  • Ideally previous experience as a Resident Engineer or Customer Applications Engineer within an automotive engineering environment

This Resident Engineer/Project Engineer opening is on a Contract basis only. It is likely that you will spend time between customers in Stockholm and Gothenburg. Some time may also be spent with the engineering team in the UK on occasions.

Automotive experience is a must, as is a good understanding of electronics (systems or detailed level)
