Electrical System Engineer, Senior - Principal


  • Lead the design of hardware-in-the-loop simulator system for the oil well and of the down hole tools, so as to enable model-based development of downhole tools.
  • Own the architecture and define functional requirements of simulators.
  • Define specification for various analog and digital interfaces of the simulator and specifies the requirements for different modules for the commercially available hardware (from Speedgoat/dSpace/National Instruments etc.).
  • Develops requirements for sampling times, processing speeds for each signal, external/internal signal conditioning circuits and develop such circuits.
  • Owns the design of the electrical wiring diagram of the simulator system.
  • Primary contact point for integration, ensuring proper understanding of interface requirements between different subject-matter experts (hardware, firmware, software). Track and/or execute on tool-system verification plans and ensure documented results meet requirements.
  • Close collaboration with tool development team, Systems Engineering and/or Technical Service to propose system-level verification test cases, execute test plans, ensuring various tool operating cases are simulated, results meet requirements, review is carried, and information documented.
  • Track or execute on system-level verification testing and deliver on a verified system for commercialization
  • Develop understanding of various sensors used on down hole tools and their failure modes. Develop capabilities in the simulator system to simulate the sensor output in various operating and failure modes
  • Independently troubleshoot integration issues faced by a complex system for the tool system application, which is potentially multiple-disciplinary (Electrical, Mechanical, Software, Physics)
  • Develop regression test plans and plans for increasing the speed and thoroughness of the testing
  • Local champion of the model-based development approach to drive productivity in the tool controller development process.


  • The ideal candidate will possess an undergraduate/Master’s degree in Electrical Engineering, Electronics Engineering and/or Industrial/Systems Engineering, with at least 2 years of relevant experience
