Electrical Subsystems engineers architect, design, and develop game-changing control systems that implement the subsystems and hardware necessary to achieve customer and business value as defined by our products’ engine performance, fuel consumption, operability, noise, emissions, and time on wing; and provide unmatched customer support, all in an environmentally responsible manner.

Electrical Subsystems engineers work across all Control & Diagnostic Systems (CDS) subdisciplines to help achieve program objectives of the CDS Component Integrated Product Team (CIPT).

Electrical Subsystems engineers apply skills from across a wide range of PW Engineering disciplines such as Performance, Operability, Mechanical Disciplines, Aerothermal Management, to name a few, to develop, integrate and certify subsystems and hardware for Civil and Military customers. Electrical Subsystems engineering work the entire system life cycle from 1) control system technology development, 2) interpreting customer requirements, decomposing them to hardware and software, 3) technical and project oversight of hardware implementation, to 4) ensuring control system compliance across engine, flight and customer compliance testing, and finally, 5) leading system and hardware field issue triage and resolution.

Key Responsibilities:

  • Decompose control system requirements into electrical subsystem and component requirements
  • Derive requirements for control software
  • Ensure correct and complete traceability to Customer requirements and Engine-level requirements
  • Perform analysis for functional requirement decomposition and requirement validation
  • Perform technology trade studies
  • Drive component design solutions to optimize performance, cost, reliability and weight
  • Work with component suppliers to optimize design and ensure compliance
  • Support suppliers on component and subsystem qualification
  • Track requirement metrics (e.g. validation status, verification status, compliance, etc.)
  • Communicate project status and risks to the Engineering Leadership
  • Develop transient models of sensors, electronic and electrical parts

Basic Qualifications:

  • BS in Engineering
  • 5+ years of engineering experience, or 3+ years of engineering experience with an advance degree
  • US Citizenship required due to government contracts

Preferred Qualifications:

  • Typically requires a degree in Science, Technology, Engineering or Mathematics (STEM) and a minimum of 5 years of prior relevant experience unless prohibited by local laws/regulations.
  • Master of science in Electrical Engineering or Aerospace Systems engineering preferred
  • Control Systems background
  • Component modeling experience
  • Experience with Matlab/Simulink and Cameo
  • Security Clearance is preferred; willing to obtain and maintain

What is my role type?

In addition to transforming the future of flight, we are also transforming how and where we work. We’ve introduced role types to help you understand how you will operate in our blended work environment. This role is:

Onsite: Employees who are working in Onsite roles will work primarily onsite. This includes all production and maintenance workers, as they are essential to the development of our engines.

Candidates will learn more about role type and current site status throughout the recruiting process. For onsite and hybrid roles, commuting to and from the assigned site is the employee’s personal responsibility.
