Over 60 years ago, Hitachi Energy introduced a new way of transmitting electricity across long distances with minimum losses – High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC). We can now deliver up to 12 gigawatts of power at voltage levels of up to 1100 kV, covering distances of more than 3,000 kilometers. Also, HVDC is key enabler for integrating renewable sources like offshore wind farms in continental power grid. Our R&D engineers and scientists develop breakthrough technologies that change the way the world works, and industries do business. Now we are looking for enthusiasts who would like to strengthen our growing team in Hitachi Energy Technology Center in Krakow, contributing to the heart of HVDC station: Modular Advanced Control for HVDC (MACH™).

That control system is designed to run 24/7 for thirty years or more, handling for all control and protection functions. Development in Krakow covers High-Speed digital control boards, I/O Measurements systems and Power Electronics control & protection circuits. As a part of global R&D organization you will cooperate on daily bases with colleagues from MACH™ teams in Sweden and India, all working under same Agile framework (SAFe), developing End-to-End solutions integrating electronic hardware, FPGA, and embedded software.

  • At least Master/bachelor’s degree in Electronics/Electrical Engineering or relate field
  • At least 2 years’ hardware design professional experience of analogue and digital circuits
  • Practical knowledge of hardware design process and tools (e.g. SPICE, Altium, PADS, CADSTAR…)
  • Experience with laboratory equipment and circuit boards testing and measurements
  • Awareness of PCB/PCBA manufacturing, DFM, and test technology
  • A high level of self-motivation, curiosity and desire to learn about new technologies
  • A collaborative, solutions-oriented approach and strong communication skills
  • English language – at least Intermediate / B1 / Technical communication
  • Strong commitment to safe work practices and dedication to following all relevant workplace safety guidelines

It would be advantage:

  • Understanding of component and device reliability, DFMA
  • Experience with fiber optics and copper media communication interfaces
  • Experience with Test and Measuring automation tools (VISA, Python, LabView)
  • Experience in product certification, EMC, signal and power integrity
  • Basic principles of C/C++ or VHDL language
  • Understanding mechanical documentation
