Division A - Engineering - Steering
ZF is a global leader in driveline and chassis technology as well as active and passive safety technology. ZF has a global workforce of approximately 138,300 at 230 locations in 40 countries. Working at ZF is more than just a job; it’s an opportunity to imagine and create global mobility for tomorrow – and beyond.
Are you up for the challenge?
Are you interested in systems engineering? How about systems engineering for autonomous driving? Join us to develop one of autonomous driving’s key actuators, the Electric Power Steering system. As part of ZF’s EPS Core Mechatronics organization, you will use your creativity and experience to drive the design of the EPS’s mechatronics – ECU, motor, sensors and software – to deliver best-in-class autonomous safety, reliability and performance. This is a leading role in the organization requiring strong communication and influencing skills, self-reliance and global travel.
Lead the analysis of new customer requirements sets against ZF’s ‘core’ system requirements, develop compliance statements and present ZF’s compliance to the customer. Our customers are globally distributed so you should be willing to travel within the US and abroad for up to two weeks duration, perhaps twice a year.
Support the development of ZF’s core system architecture to meet emerging system requirements, or tailor the core for a customer-specific program, flowing-down requirements to sub-system design teams.
Work with electronic, motor, sensor and software sub-system design teams to understand their constraints.
Support the integration and test of prototype EPS systems, investigating performance and reliability issues from a requirements perspective.
Shape systems engineering practice within ZF – with model-based design and multi-level HIL test capability, we are aiming to match the state-of-the-art.
Essential Skills and Experience:
Bachelor’s degree in a relevant field; Master’s degree or better preferred.
