The Role

Tesla is committed to having industry-leading uptime in our deployed fleet of grid storage batteries. We are using data collected from our connected systems to find problems before the customer does. The Tesla Energy Product team is looking to hire a power electronics product engineer to identify and root cause design, process, or firmware failures in our fleet of energy storage systems. We are striving to achieve product quality many multiples better than current industry standard for power electronics and person in this role would play a central role in achieving that.

This person will work with a cross-functional team of engineers to troubleshoot and diagnose malfunctioning power converters, digital control systems, heating and cooling systems inside Tesla’s energy storage products. They would then lead the effort to devise and deploy necessary corrective actions ranging from firmware changes, hardware design changes, manufacturing process or installation process changes, etc. to prevent failures from reoccurring.  

Responsibilities

  • Troubleshoot and root cause product field failures of in-house developed DCAC, DCDC power converters – including but not limited to physical inspection and testing of failed units, reviewing data logs and correlating with product specifications to compare against expected behavior, reviewing manufacturing and installation processes for cause of failure.
  • Develop and run data queries on fleet logs from thousands of units to correlate failures to physical environmental conditions, system state, install region and other relevant parameters
  • Work with the engineering and manufacturing teams to drive design and manufacturing changes to improve product quality in both existing and future products
  • Define data signatures that uniquely identify the failure and lead integration of this knowledge into algorithms to automatically identify similar other failures in the field
  • Provide support on escalated customer cases in order to minimize system downtime, through day to day coverage of internationally distributed service cases

Must have requirements

  • BS in electrical engineering with minimum 5 years or experience or MS degree with 3 years with specialization in power electronics, power converters, digital control systems, embedded systems or equivalent practical experience
  • Experience using Python or similar for data analysis
  • Strong engineering fundamentals and intuition, applied to firmware/software-enabled mechatronic systems
  • Excellent oral, written communication and collaborative skills
  • An ability to prioritize and execute many tasks in parallel.  An excellent attention to detail and an ability to produce clear and concise written documents and diagrams
Nice to have requirements

  • ·       Experience with battery, solar or inverter systems a plus but not required

Work travel is expected to be about 10% in this job. This would include traveling to customer sites, our manufacturing facilities, etc.
