This is an exciting opportunity in Mississauga, Ontario for a Fuel Cell System Mechanical Engineer.

 

 

The successful candidate:

* Is responsible for design and development of novel mechanical, electro-mechanical, and thermal subsystems for rail-based fuel cell applications.

* Specifies, selects, and validates key system-level components for integration into product platforms.

* Creates, maintains, and updates technical information, internal specifications, and manages engineering changes.

* Identifies systems design improvements, including cost reduction opportunities, and system optimization approaches.

* Participates in applications-specific fuel cell systems integration design review meetings, and provides valuable input relating to systems architecture.

* Participates (and in some instances leads) fuel cell system and sub-system prototype builds, and experimental test setups in order to validate designs.

* Utilizes ‘hands-on’ approach to all projects.

* Participates as a member in a multi-disciplinary team providing valuable input to others.

 

 

Your impact will happen in these and other ways:

* Obtains input from stakeholders such as technical managers, project leaders, other product and manufacturing engineers and supplier partners to deliver information and recommendations that lead to quality product decisions.

* Applies academic knowledge and existing experience to take action and make decisions that progress projects forward without sacrificing project quality expectations.

* Examples of these decisions include day to day project details, analysis or test work instruction details, coordination across discipline areas, etc. that are necessary to make quality progress.

* Applies and improves processes such as ESW, iDFMEA, FIRG and tools such as 7-step problem solving, design review checklist and other specialized tools required to support the processes and enable high quality decision making.

* Provides independent leadership of smaller business impact projects or ownership of complex components, products, systems or services with greater elements of ambiguity over the senior or lead engineer level and with full accountability to the project team.

* Delivers independent execution of established and emerging work processes and systems, while still developing technology or product knowledge.

* Leads the development and improvement of work processes and systems across a functional discipline area within a business unit site.

Coordinates and directs work amongst technicians and temporary student employees, assists in the transfer of knowledge to lesser experienced engineers through either indirect (scope of influence) or direct management of a small, local group of engineers.

* Provides support and guidance to influence technical direction within a project team and continues to develop proficiency in the competency areas critical to success in the role.

Skills

 

 

Systems Thinking – Defines the system of interest by drawing the boundaries, identifying its context within its environment, its interfaces, and that it has a lifecycle to aid in planning the problem statement, scope and deliverables ; analyzes linkages and interactions between elements that comprise the system of interest by using appropriate methods, models and integration of outcomes to understand the system, predict its behavior and devise modifications to it in order to produce the desired effects.

 

System Requirements Engineering  – Uses appropriate methods and tools to translate stakeholder needs into verifiable requirements to which designs are developed; establishes acceptance criteria for the system of interest through analysis, allocation and negotiation; tracks the status of requirements throughout the system lifecycle; assesses the impact of changes to system requirements on project scope, schedule, and resources; creates and maintains information linkages to related artifacts.

 

System Capability Engineering – Identifies system capability and risks through analysis or experimental testing of the system, sub-system, or super system in the context of its environment; negotiates and verifies requirements against capability to guide project scope and system development accordingly; assesses legacy system versus proposed new system solution capabilities and makes decisions as to how best to achieve system capability with consideration of stakeholder trade-offs.

 

Product Interface Management and Integration – Identifies and analyzes the interfaces and interactions across system boundaries by specifying the requirements and limits to ensure that the product meets requirements; controls the interactions across the system element boundaries by making sure that they remain within specified limits; integrates system elements by creating an integration plan, including identification of method and timing for each activity to make it easier to find, isolate, diagnose, and correct.

 

Product Problem Solving – Solves product problems using a process that protects the customer; determines the assignable cause; implements robust, data-based solutions; and identifies the systemic root causes and recommended actions to prevent problem reoccurrence.

 

Product Failure Mode Avoidance – Mitigates potential product failure modes, by identifying interfaces, functions, functional requirements, interactions, control factors, noise factors, and prioritized potential failure modes and potential failure causes for the system of interest to effectively and efficiently improve the reliability of Cummins’ products.

 

Decision quality – Making good and timely decisions that keep the organization moving forward.

 

Drives results – Consistently achieving results, even under tough circumstances.

 

Communicates effectively – Developing and delivering multi-mode communications that convey a clear understanding of the unique needs of different audiences.

 

Builds networks – Effectively building formal and informal relationship networks inside and outside the organization.

 

Resourcefulness – Securing and deploying resources effectively and efficiently.

 

Manages complexity – Making sense of complex, high quantity, and sometimes contradictory information to effectively solve problems.

 

Experience

* Prior Senior or Lead Engineer equivalent work experience in a relevant discipline area is required with a demonstrated track record of technical problem solving and quality.

 

Required Education, Licenses or Certifications

 

Bachelor of Science (or equivalent degree) in Engineering required.

Compensation and Benefits

 

Base salary rate commensurate with experience. Additional benefits vary between locations and include options such as our Retirement Savings Plan, Pension Plan, Medical/Dental/Life Insurance, Health Savings Account, and a full complement of personal and professional benefits.
