FCA Canada Inc.
The Calibration Launch Center Systems Development Engineer for a new electrified propulsion application will be responsible for leading the development and integration of new technology into the next generation of FCA vehicles. The scope of responsibility spans the development, application and optimization of hardware, calibration and control systems for hybrid, electric and conventional propulsion types. The system positions include, but are not limited to: Power Generation Thermal Management Power Distribution & Coordination Each role will work cross functionally to develop virtual strategies, then through the Technology Readiness process, demonstrate a system solution on engine, powertrain or chassis dynamometers. The Calibration Launch Center Systems Development Engineer will then integrate the solution into a new vehicle application, assuring vehicle level objectives are met thru launch. The successful candidate will make data based decisions to document all changes through rigorous development and test plans. The Calibration Launch Center Systems Development Engineer will present and justify changes to a lead calibrator, chief engineer, and senior management as appropriate. This individual will have also demonstrated the ability to work well with others. They must be a team player, supporting and promoting team accomplishments versus personal achievement. Job responsibilities include but not limited to: Support construction of virtual models to simulate system performance Provide expertise to correlate vehicle, dyno, and virtual datasets Work closely with controls team to ensure and define feature functionality Provide guidance for calibrators to assure system performance objectives Support trips and report activities for senior management Work with the CoE teams to ensure best practices are developed and followed Point contact for system issues in their functional area FCA Canada Inc. is committed to providing accommodation for people with accessibility needs due to disabilities in all aspects of the hiring process.
