What You Will Do:
Your primary responsibility will be the development and implementation of methodologies and techniques to evaluate and enhance component or product reliability.
Identify and validate product risks, including but not limited to electrical system, mechanical system, RF system, acoustic system, and work with design teams to mitigate them
Define test methodology and test coverage to assure product reliability, such as IC reliability, board reliability, IC package types, board design and layout, electrical debug, cross sectioning, dye and pry and microscopy
Provide hands-on experimental design and execution such as electrical stress testing, ESD testing, environmental stress testing, fatigue testing, vibration, and shock testing
Perform reliability prediction of failure mechanisms on products under development and products in the field
Perform hands on numerical simulations involving mechanism analysis, structural mechanics, thermomechanical problems, and statistical/Monte Carlo simulations using off the shelf tools (Abaqus/Ansys; JMP etc.)
Develop and execute reliability qualification plans based on product lifecycle requirements while interfacing with design and manufacturing partners and external suppliers.
Develop, with other functional disciplines, customer usage models and translate understanding of the customer into practical reliability test specifications.
What You Need:
Bachelor's , Master's, or Doctoral degree in Reliability Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Materials Science, Aeronautical Engineering, Structural Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Physics, or other engineering disciplines
4+ years industry experience relevant to the capabilities and responsibilities described above, for example:
Computational analysis and numerical simulations.
Static and dynamic mechanical simulations including nonlinear material models.
Mechanical testing of materials and materials selection process.
Use of accelerated life tests, fatigue mechanisms to evaluate product reliability.
Experience with electronics and PCBA design or processe
Experience in medical device, or other regulated industry.
Understanding of principles of Mechanics of Materials including complex material models and fatigue behaviors, thermomechanical and vibration problems in electronics.
Familiarity with application of simulation tools like Finite Element Analysis, etc. to evaluate product performance (mechanical, electrical, and thermal). Good understanding of fundamental properties and characteristics of materials used in cutting-edge electronics products.
Understanding of Design for Reliability principles and Physics-of-Failure concepts to develop and implement accelerated tests to identify and mitigate risks and qualify engineering designs during product development.
Ability to use knowledge of product design and manufacturing processes to conduct Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA).
Knowledge of statistical techniques to analyze test data and create estimates for field failure rates.
