Rockwell Automation is doing things never before possible. We connect the imaginations of people with the potential of technology to make the world more intelligent, more connected and more productive.
We help the world work better and people work smarter and are looking for bright minds to make that happen. The makers, the forward thinkers, the problem solvers. That's where you come in.
As an Electromagnetic Simulation Project Engineer, you will be part of a central team focused on new product development. This includes Electromagnetic Compliance, Signal Integrity and Power Integrity requirements, having a direct impact on product quality and reliability. You will partner with global Rockwell Automation system architects, electronic designers and PCB designers. You will provide recommendations and consulting services to SIC engineers on all aspects of EMC/SI/PI design and troubleshooting. Opportunities will exist to educate others, grow your own skills and advance simulation.
