System Engineer / Concept Engineer for power electronics (f/m)

In our concept team we are working on innovative architectures for power converter with the latest wide band gap switch technologies, like Silicon Carbide. The combination of advanced power switches and modern mixed signal technologies we are enabling new topologies for highest energy efficiency at lowest system cost for the industrial market. With pre-development projects we are evaluating applications like servo drives for robotics, drives for industrial or home appliances as well as for energy harvesting technologies like solar, to find new solutions to their specific problems e.g. EMI performance.

Job description
We are seeking for an experienced Designer of power electronics or a mixed signal gate driver designer with good understanding of power converters. You will be responsible for defining and evaluating new concepts and methods for leading edge architectures of power stages and converters in close cooperation with the marketing, application engineers and the R&D teams. With your good understanding of the application needs, you will support the R&D team in better understanding the requirements and implementing those during the product development phase.

The core of power converter electronics consists of a gate driver IC, the power switch, like IGBT and SiC Mosfets. Together with many auxiliary services such as temperature / voltage / current / SOA monitoring an optimization in terms of performance and cost on system level needs to be achieved.

Main tasks and responsibilities in your new role:

  • Drive innovation for new features and methods in power electronic
  • Support the R&D teams in the definition phase of new products
  • Co-work with the product concept and application engineering team to anticipate future customer needs
  • Actively communicate and support marketing and management during the roadmap discussion
  • Building up a network with experts in and outside the company (e.g. Universities, research institutes…)

Your profile
As a team player in an internationally distributed team, you communicate openly, clearly, coherently and are able to quickly establish a successful cooperation. You demonstrate high quality standards for yourself and other people and enjoy working on innovative topics making things better, faster, and more efficient.

You are best equipped for this task if you have:

  • University degree in the field of electronic engineering or comparable
  • Fluent English required, with German skills as a plus
  • 5+ years of experience in power electronic applications or mixed-signal design for Driver IC
  • Experience in product specification, ideally in concept engineering
  • Strong knowledge about switching converters (AC-DC, DC-AC and/or DC-DC)
  • Strong knowledge about analog and mixed-signal design flows and development tools as Cadence ADE, Spectre or other SPICE like simulators etc.
  • Strong knowledge of IC mixed signal and power switch technologies
  • Experience with Matlab/Simulink and RTL Languages would be an advantage

This position is subject to the collective agreement for workers and employees in the electrical and electronics industry, employment group H ( The monthly salary is paid 14 times p.a. A higher payment is negotiable depending on your expertise and skills. Furthermore, Infineon offers additional employee benefits.

Part of your life. Part of tomorrow.

We make life easier, safer and greener - with technology that achieves more, consumes less and is accessible to everyone. Microelectronics from Infineon is the key to a better future. Efficient use of energy, environmentally-friendly mobility and security in a connected world - we solve some of the most critical challenges that our society faces while taking a conscientious approach to the use of natural resources.

The Industrial Power Control segment (IPC) designs, develops, manufactures and markets semiconductors and system solutions primarily for the use in industrial electronic applications. IPC offers semiconductor products for various power transmission stages, i.e. from the generation via the transmission, and finally the conversion of electric power. IPC's product portfolio comprises discrete IGBT devices, IGBT modules and IGBT stacks, as well as IGBT driver ICs and driver boards for controlling IGBT modules and covers practically the entire power range from a few hundred watts to several megawatts. IPC's target applications include industrial drives (motors, pumps, fans, compressors), home appliances, renewable energy generation, and traction.

Does this sound like just the right challenge for you? If so, we look forward to getting to know you!
