Job Description

Senior Circuit Breaker Engineer

Salary: $85k-$100k
Location: Sarasota, FL
Industry: Aerospace/Defense

Summary: In charge of electric component design conducting a combination of electrical and mechanical engineering. The electric components designed in our distribution business line consists of circuit breakers, contactors, switches, and auxiliary contacts for a range of current from 0.1 Amp to 600 Amp and for a range of voltage from 5V to 1200 V. While our components are designed for aerospace industry they are used in a wide range of applications such as, but not limited to, military vehicles, oil and gas mining, heavy duty construction equipment, farm equipment and both military and commercial aerospace applications.

  • BS Degree in Engineering
  • 5 years of experience in a design office or research center designing electric component.
  • Knowledge of electric contact material and electric contact design
  • Knowledge of bi-metal design
  • Knowledge of coil and solenoid design

  • The primary responsibilities of an Electromechanical engineer include designing, developing, and maintaining electric components by focusing on safety, cost, reliability, sustainability, and quality.
  • Implicated in a project from the conceptual idea and detail of the design to testing, qualification and industrialization for full rate production.
  • Conduct specifications and requirements-based design activities.
  • Produce analysis and justification in order to develop and justify conformity of design to requirements. These analyses include:
    • Mechanical stress analysis
    • Heat dissipation and heat transfer analysis
    • Modeling of parts deformation due to thermal effect
    • Voltage drops analysis.
    • Modeling of latch/unlatch mechanism.
    • Modeling of opening/closing time and dynamic of motion.
    • Magnetic field modeling
    • Mechanical stack-up analysis
    • Material selection
    • Selection of coating and plating for metallic parts.
    • Wear allowance analysis
    • Modeling of friction and tribology between parts
    • Produce experimental technology validation, component verification, & endurance test plans
  • Research appropriate solutions with purchasing and industrialization team to fit with target costs and time scale.
  • The Electromechanical Engineer prime activity is to conduct analysis, calculation, and design activities to develop electric components.
  • Work in an integrated program team with representative of quality, supply chain, industrialization, production, sales & marketing, program, and other engineering representative (draftsman, experts, electronic engineer) to develop or enhance products within a predefine timeline, cost targets and technical requirements.
  • Team up with other engineers and technical experts to ensure conformity of product against all requirements and to identify technical risk and mitigation plan early in the development phase.
  • Work with the test group to define test plans, follow execution of tests and analyze test results.
  • Coordinate with the engineering team from other Safran sites (in the US and abroad) to conduct concurrent engineering and dispatch work to centers of excellence.
  • Interface with customers to discuss technical specification, justify design and potential deviation, review qualification results and analyze customer change request.
  • Interface with configuration control team to ensure proper records of drawings, specifications, and justification notes.
  • Regular, predictable attendance is required.
  • Must be willing to work overtime as necessary.
