As an open-minded and self-motivated individual, you bring independent critical thinking to your work. Your experience includes over 10 years in automotive BMS development after a master's degree or a doctoral-level research background in BMS, coupled with at least 5 years of industrial experience in BMS development for automotive or consumer electronic applications.

Main Role and Responsibilities:

  • Lead the design of BMS platform with flexible and modular architecture (definition of technical requirements and physical system structure including interfaces and integration between various system elements from top to bottom) considering stakeholder requirements, high-level targets, legal requirements, and standards for a wide range of vehicle as well as stationary applications.
  • Lead the optimization of BMS platform considering various configuration of battery cell-stacks, battery form factors, packaging constraints, electric propulsion system architectures, vehicle interfaces, and operating conditions.
  • Contribute to concept development of BMS functionality (battery control hardware and software) and design trade-off studies between various functions considering high-level ESS attribute requirements like performance (energy and power availability), lifetime, safety etc.
  • Contribute to battery electrical system architecture and control system strategies including specification of various components to meet high-level targets.
  • Contribute to cross-functional concept studies for battery platform development and architectural evolution of electric propulsion system.
  • Contribute to SFMEA, DFMEAs, and FuSa analysis.
  • Collaborate closely with Chief Engineers, multi-disciplinary development teams, and stakeholders to optimize overall BMS solution for improved performance, lifetime, and safety as well as to seamlessly integrate the BMS into a wide range of vehicle and non-vehicle applications.
  • Contribute to BMS technology roadmap including definition of advanced engineering and research activities.
  • Share knowledge, coach, and mentor team members.


  • MSc. (PhD preferred) in control systems, mechatronics, electronics, electrical engineering, or engineering physics,
  • Extensive knowledge of various state-of-art BMS architectures, hardware and software components, with proven BMS development experience for automotive applications,
  • High competence in BMS system engineering and architectural trade-off analysis.
  • Strong understanding of overall battery system design and architecture, particularly battery E&E and thermal hardware characteristics.
  • Deep insights into battery cell electro-thermal-ageing dynamics and modeling, with sufficient proficiency in battery state estimation and control design.
  • Strong abstract thinking, model-based system engineering, mathematical modeling, and system theoretic analysis.
  • Hands-on experience in electronics and software development for embedded control applications, including safety-critical control functions.
  • Familiarity with electric vehicle architectures and control interactions between various subsystems.
  • Good knowledge of various battery regulations and standards.
  • High proficiency in MATLAB and Simulink based modelling and analysis.
  • Fluent in written and spoken English, with excellent communication and presentation skills.
