G-TECH Services, Inc. Transmission Controls Engineer - Intermediate - PJH47 in Auburn Hills, Michigan

The Transmission Controls Engineer - Intermediate will be responsible for following agile development methods to support the design, development, implementation and testing of various drive strategy controls specifically related to shift scheduling, tcc release/lock-up, but may also include line pressure control, shift-by-wire, signal integrity and management, shift lever analysis and implementation. This role also has the possibility to support product reviews on current/advanced transmission products to ensure controls are implemented to meet controllability, robustness, and durability requirements as well as propose/design algorithm changes as needed.

Responsibilities include but not limited to:

· Design and develop transmission control algorithms and validate these changes for production implementation.

· Create requirements for implementing these algorithms into transmission software.

· Perform verification and validation of these algorithms using SIL/HIL and in vehicle.

· Establish and execute design verification plans for control logic development.

· Conduct design failure mode effects analysis for control logic changes.

· Support transmission hardware improvements, cost reduction efforts through control logic development and other quality initiatives.

· Support transmission calibration efforts by contributing to calibration guide and base calibration development.

· Support calibration verification and release transmission calibrations for production.


· Bachelor of Science in Computer, Electrical, or Mechanical Engineering.

· Minimum 3-5 year of engineering experience, however, an advanced degree and/or academic research in a related field may count towards experience requirement.

· Basic understanding of powertrain functions (transmission, engines, driveline).

· Good overall knowledge of transmission control systems related to drive strategy, shift scheduling, shift-by-wire, signal filtering, oil budgeting, and shift lever analysis.

· Experience in standard development tools, modeling/simulation/development/testing/validation.

· Experience in standard productivity tools (MS Office Suite).

· Outstanding interpersonal and problem solving skills.

· Self-starter who is able to work cross-functionally with other organizations.

· Highly motivated individual.

· Basic knowledge in micro-controller hardware and embedded software.

· Must be able to work with multiple disciplines (mechanical, electrical and controls)

Preferred Requirements :

· Advanced/Master degree in Engineering.

· Deep understanding of powertrain functions and Controls Algorithms focused on conventional combustion engines interfaces with transmissions.

· Minimum of 5-10 years of powertrain development experience.

· Subject matter expertise in transmission controls or specialist in one or more of the following areas:

o Line Pressure control• Transmission Oil Budget Analysis.

o Transmission Oil Usage modelling.

o Shift Scheduling.

o Shift-By-Wire.

o Signal Filtering/Conditioning.

o Shift Lever analysis and implementation.

· Knowledge of "C" programming language utilized in embedded code as well as MATLAB/SimuLink, Amesim, Borland/MSDN, Lauterbach.

· Working experience with automotive development/calibration tools (ETAS, INCA, CDA, Vector, DOORS)
