Electronics Hardware Engineer - FPGA

Job Description

We are Siemens Mobility - We’re a leading global provider of short-distance, regional, and long-distance rolling stock, as well as product and system solutions for passenger and freight transport. We ensure that passengers are transported in a safe and comfortable environment while also meeting economic and environmental requirements. Our products are future-oriented and efficient operations while reducing environmental impact and conserving resources.

We seek to hire an Electronics Hardware FPGA Engineer for the R&D team in embedded systems for rail signaling and onboard equipment. This role is responsible for crafting and developing new products and troubleshooting and enhancing existing products. The ideal candidate possesses a proven understanding of electrical engineering, digital and analog design practices, background knowledge in network communications, and has experience implementing signal processing and communications algorithms (e.g., RS-232, Echelon, ethernet) in FPGA environments, and can translate functional requirements into efficient working designs.

This role requires a good communicator who can work independently and collaboratively in a multidisciplinary team environment. A successful candidate must apply technical theories and concepts in developmental settings and have a broad knowledge of printed circuit board design and limitations, system engineering, and digital/analog circuit design. You must be comfortable working in an environment with strict milestone deadlines and balancing multiple priorities to ensure projects finish on time.

We are looking for someone who can utilize high-level critical thinking to bring high-impact, sophisticated, cross-functional problems to a successful resolution. We develop innovative solutions to realize cost savings, improve reliability, and increase customer value. Due to the nature of this role, employees would need to physically be located in either our Pittsburgh, PA or Louisville, KY facilities and cannot work remotely.
