Job Description

Eaton’s Power Reliability division is currently seeking a Design Engineer to join our team. This position is based at our South Milwaukee, WI facility.
 
The Design Engineer is responsible for supporting our Switchgear or L.I.P.E (Line Installation Protection Equipment) products.  In this role, you will design, develop, and sustain support of power distribution and protection equipment.  In this role, creativity and innovation are focused on developing electrical and electro-mechanical product solutions for application on electrical power systems. Assignments range in scope from high level system concepts to detailed sub-system development and analysis.  This role is a key contributor to cross functional project teams that push concepts through a formal project process.
 
Making what matters work at Eaton takes the passion of every employee around the world. We create an environment where creativity, invention and discovery become reality, each and every day. It’s where bold, bright professionals like you can reach your full potential—and where you can help us reach ours.
  • You will develop product design and product definition data (bills of materials, drawings, specifications) related to power distribution and protection products to meet schedule, cost and quality targets.  Coordinate and execute component and assembly level design reviews.
  • You will creatively and efficiently solve design challenges by understanding the elements within a design that are critical for success, while eliminating the non-value added elements. Develop work processes and durations for completing assigned project tasks with the ability to identify critical dependencies and risks.
  • You will apply robust prototyping methodology with detailed analysis testing to refine and finalize design concepts.
  • You will develop component and assembly functional and reliability test plans, and coordinates the execution of the tests using both internal and external lab resources.
  • You will perform engineering analysis and digital simulation leveraging advanced tools (CAD, FEA, statistical analysis, software applications, electrical analysis tools, etc…).
  • You will collaborate with global suppliers and Supplier Quality Engineers to define and conduct supplier assessments, capability analysis, and part approvals.
  • You will collaborate with cross function resources to analyze, document, and resolve product reliability issues (Quality Engineers, Application Engineers, Services Technicians).
When we embrace the different ideas, perspectives and backgrounds that make each of us unique, we — as individuals and as a company — are stronger.
