Test Engineer (Co-op)
Genesis Robotics & Motion Technologies - Test Engineer (Co-op)
At Genesis, there is no such thing as a dull moment. The path we are on is full of excitement, energy and exploring new frontiers. Picture having your own front row seat to the robotics revolution and the future of motion technologies. This is the journey Genesis has traveled since the company’s inception. The best part? We are just getting started.
We are looking for a Test Engineer to plan, coordinate, execute and compute the data from a test. You will interface regularly with members of a highly diverse team. Successful candidates will have excellent communication, enjoy getting things done, and will excel at developing professional relationships with the team.
What You Will Do In Your Role
- Act as a champion of the Genesis Robotics brand, vision and guiding principles.
- Test planning and design: you will interact regularly with other members of the engineering team across various functions to understand testing objectives and convert these objectives into a structured test plan. You will develop test plans and protocols for verification testing, performance testing and development testing where required. Accelerated stress tests will be an important component of the role as well.
- Test Execution: understand all aspects of a test plan and execute this plan with efficiency. Anticipate roadblocks during the execution phase and work to mitigate these before they come up. Be willing to evolve test strategies in response to new information acquired through the life of the test.
- Post-test data processing and analysis: compile test data from different sources over varying periods of time and be able to tell a practical story using the test data as a table of contents. You will evaluate and interpret data to draw conclusions as well as inform other members of the engineering team on test results. Make recommendations to engineering team and manufacturing team based on test results. Perform failure investigations using test data as a tool.
The Experience You Will Bring
- Ability to think critically, creatively, and outside of the box when approaching test challenges.
- Adaptable to rapid changes in test objectives or in the overall testing environment.
- Keen attention to detail.
- Experience working with and implementing LabVIEW code.
- Ability to maintain a safe and compliant working environment at all times.
- Ability to thrive in a dynamic and fast-paced R&D environment.
- Exceptional communication skills and fluent in both oral and written English.
What Will Put You Ahead
- Experience with design and implementation of electronic circuits.
- Knowledge of mechatronics systems - in particular electric motors
- Experience with testing electromechanical devices on the shop floor
- Experience with data analysis and problem solving.
