Tesla’s actuator team designs and builds actuators for humanoid
bi-pedal robots (Tesla Bot). The team joins mechanical, electrical, and
electromagnetic engineering disciplines in a highly collaborative environment.
This position is critical to the development of the
high-performance electromechanical rotary and linear actuator systems for
humanoid bi-pedal robots (Tesla Bot). Tesla actuators need to deliver high performance, efficiency,
and torque (force) density. You will join the team of electromagnetic motor
design engineers to develop the most torque and force dense rotary and linear actuator
systems in the world.
part of the design team, you will be responsible for mechanical design and
integration of the actuator components. You will also support industrialization
and production activities.
What You’ll Do
design and integration of rotary and linear electromechanical actuators.
with electromagnetic motor design engineers to develop the most torque dense
and efficient electromechanical actuator systems in the world.
and integration of rotary and linear speed reduction systems for high
performance motion control actuator applications.
with supply chain, vendor, and manufacturing engineers.
evaluate new technologies and design improvements to develop the most power
dense, efficient, low cost, and reliable electric motors and actuators.
and build motor and actuator prototypes for the validation of mechanical
and electromechanical performance.
fabrication, machining, wiring, general electronics, debugging, and parts
skills in CAD (CATIA, NX, Inventor, Solid Works, etc.).
skills in Matlab/Simulink are preferred.
What You’ll Bring
- BS in
Mechanical, Mechatronic, or Aerospace Engineering, or equivalent.
- 3+ years
experience with design of rotary and linear electromechanical actuators
for motion control applications.
successful experience in mechanical engineering in a product design and
experience with design and integration of high-performance electromechanical
actuators (thermal, gear and speed reduction, bearing, structural design).
with thermal analysis and design for passive (natural convection) and active
cooling (forced air and liquid).
- Hands-on experience,
previous internship and/or project experience is preferred.
