Our projects include the design and development of motors and generators for e-mobility applications such as electric cars and aircraft. Our next-generation axial flux machines are smaller, lighter and more efficient compared with today's traditional motor/generators. We are looking for an engineer with experience in machine design and simulation. As part of this challenge, you will enjoy an instructive position at the forefront of innovation.
• You are responsible for the future development of axial flux technology for electric vehicle applications. Based on your earlier experience you become an expert in the yokeless axial flux topology.
• You can quickly understand, use and optimize our axial flux design software, and perform finite-element and analytical electromagnetic calculations, to provide the engineering team with design specifications.
• You can incorporate technology developments into new designs, to optimize performance, fault tolerance and cost.
• You interpret and analyse customer specifications to create motor specifications and development requirements.
• You provide technical assistance to the engineers and assist prototype build and test activities.
• You have a passion for electric motor design, an M.S./PhD in Electrical Engineering or similar Degree, and experience with analysis software and electromagnetic field simulation.
• At least 3 years experience with electric motor design and development, preferably permanent magnet machines.
• Extensive experience with Ansys Maxwell (or similar software) and Matlab.
• You are fluent in English (verbal and written).
• You are not afraid of a startup environment where a mix of design- and hands-on activities are crucial.
• Preferably, you can work at our office in Belgium.
• A full-time position in an inspiring high-tech environment.
• Magnax is a fast growing company. This means that you'll have a lot of impact on the future of the company and your own career.
• You'll collaborate directly with the inventor of the machines and our research partners. This will be a huge opportunity in terms of learning experience.
• You'll have flexibility in terms of working hours and holidays.
• An attractive salary package with extralegal benefits (stock options, car,..).
