You are a creative and passionate engineer that enjoys the challenge of building safe systems. You enjoy working with regulatory and safety consulting bodies (such as TÜV), and are experienced in leading a team to bring certified products to market. You understand that innovation must be interdisciplinary, and you enjoy the challenge of building something that hasn’t been done before. You are perhaps a bit nit-picky, which helps establish foresight for the details.
You deeply understand the requirements in IEC 61800-5-2 for our industry. You are familiar with the standard norms, including ISO 13849 and IEC 61508, and have been trained in at least one relevant functional safety standard. You have no problem executing an FMEA, FMEDA, and conducting reliability calculations.
Knowledge of FSoE or ProfiSAFE (or any safe fieldbus protocol) is a plus. Maybe you’ve dabbled a bit in IEC 61800-5-3; that’d be helpful too.
We are especially interested in selecting a candidate that excels in clear and effective communication, both verbally and in writing. Excellently written specifications communicate your clever solutions to the rest of the world. Meetings you lead are informative, and everyone leaves with a common goal. You are excited to work on a team to build something bigger than you could do by yourself.
