2 plus relevant work experience is required.

  • As a CC01 ATI engineer, the majority of time will focus on tuning features and diagnostics following prescribed or emerging processes such as 3step MSP/MSI/MSF, E/D/L/P feature review, and deficiency removal etc. Day-to-day work will include tasks such as troubleshooting issues, generating test plans for data collection, analyzing data, and presenting conclusions to internal CMI stakeholders within EBU and/or CES. May also include transparency evaluation of calibration / software / calibration changes. Goal would be to provide calibrations and appropriate documentation to demonstrate compliance to applicable ESWs / technical profiles / related DVP&R tasks.

  • Work will span test cell systems to truck/machine and/or field test units, but note travel requirements are typically 10% or lower. As a CC01 ATI engineer, parameter ownership is a requirement, and the volume of parameters is dependent on skill level / work plans we develop.

  • Work plans will focus support to VPI and may be narrow in scope to only one or a few maximum specific product platforms or alternatively tailored to specific components with broader product application responsibility. At times collaboration with colleagues in CPS tuning responsibility may occur and expectations would be to support as needed.

  • This role may also include working as a liaison between PQC/CPS groups to identify and implement product fixes from one customer / application base and roll it out across the entire CMI applicable product base (as needed).

  • This role and the ATI group as a whole is expected to be very good at interfacing, communicating, and collaborating with a variety of internal CMI groups, including, but not limited to, R&T and CES ATI teams, EBU and CES controls teams, and EBU CPE.

  • Desired skill sets include a proficiency in Matlab, EBU/CES core software familiarity (i.e. Simulink), ability to run Calterm, and familiarity with running a test cell. Knowledge of CPE and or controls fundamentals are also a plus in that we spend a lot of time interfacing with these functions so it’s good to know their respective jobs.
