Powertrain Power Electronics Engineer

Job ID: 2159251

City: Mesa, AZ


You've seen opportunities like this before: “Join a startup that's changing the world.” Sounds like a dream job, right? Well, this one is. Here's why: You'll join the high-horsepower team developing a 100% battery-electric full-size pickup truck (the Atlis XT) that will revolutionize the way work is done. The XT Pickup is everything you expect in a truck: it’s rugged, it’s durable, it can perform in the most extreme conditions. Just like our team.

Atlis Motor Vehicles was born in founder Mark’s garage, ignited by curiosity and personal motivation. Mark’s goal: take his energy-guzzling diesel pickup and convert it into an electric truck. Early on, it was just Mark, his truck and long hours spent in the solitude of his garage. He leveraged his engineering background and brought in colleagues who are experts in various fields—power tech, batteries, automotive dynamics, etc.—to design a solution that solves the biggest pain points in the electric vehicle market today. Together, they sought to disrupt the status quo, and to discover just how far they can take it. The result: the XT Pickup. It’s not just a better electric vehicle; it’s not just a better pickup truck; it’s the foundation for an entirely new approach to electric vehicles.

Our mission is a big one: we will change the world with a better alternative. We will build something that matters, not just something to play the game. We will solve problems that are key to our customers' success. We will not be afraid of big challenges. There is a lot of work to do, and we're looking for optimistic problem-solvers to help us get there.

You’ll be part of the team responsible for bringing the ATLIS powertrain system from concept to production launch. Your team will create and implement all ALIS traction motors, control systems, and gear drive systems. You will be responsible for technical requirements, researching and developing solutions, selecting components and system level design – from requirements to design and development of the power stage and control of the drivetrain inverter.

Ultimately, you and your team will ensure we hit key milestones and bring massive value to the electric vehicle market.

Key Responsibilities:

  • Coming up with the requirements of the AMV drivetrain converter

  • Topology selection, component selection, simulation of the selected topology, efficiency calculation, schematics and layout design, prototype testing

  • Heavily involved in the motor controls development

  • Assume ownership of projects and execute with minimal oversight

  • Launch key technical milestones on-time and in-budget

  • Lead the development of the ATLIS powertrain system

  • Use Mechanical and Electrical skills to take electric motors, gearboxes, and drive systems from development to production

Ideally, you have experience with:

  • Creating 3 phase inverters

  • Designing DC to AC converters

  • High voltage greater than 300 volts DC

  • Able to design EMC circuits for converter mitigate issues such as common mode and normal mode noise.

  • Component selection in terms of inductor, capacitor, switching devices for 3 phase inverter topologies.

  • Simulation software such as Plecs or PSim

  • Schematic and PCB layout (high voltage power electronics layout)

  • Altium

  • Soldering surface mount and through hole

  • Microcontrollers

  • FOC

  • Leading high functioning teams
