Hybrid: This position does not require an employee to be on-site full-time to perform most effectively. The employee’s role enables them to work at a GM facility or off-site as frequently as needed or desired. This position requires an employee to be onsite 1-3 times per week

The High Voltage Battery and Electrical System CAE Engineer will be responsible for building and implementing one dimensional electrical sub-system and component models for high voltage components like Batteries, fuses, cables, and connectors. They will be responsible for creating models for semiconductor power devices like IGBT, MOSFET and Diode.

They will interpret and present results to decision makers at key program gates for GM Global Vehicle Development Program. This person will be required to interact closely with team members and work cross functionally to deliver standard work, root cause analysis, compare analytical results to tests, develop new analysis capabilities, and identify analytical gaps.


  • Develop high voltage battery and electrical systems models using tools like Saber, Matlab and Simulink
  • Perform high voltage electrical analysis to deliver design solutions which are robust and reliable, applying optimization and statistical methods when appropriate
  • Work collaboratively with Propulsion/ Battery System integration engineers, Electrical Architects, and component hardware design teams to ensure system requirements are met, design concepts are evaluated, and development and validation plans are successful
  • Collaborate with other CAE teams to integrate higher fidelity models like battery cell electrochemistry and thermal/CFD into electrical system simulations
  • Ensure on time delivery of high-quality results

Additional Description


  • BS, MS or PhD in Electrical Engineering, Computer Science or Mechanical Engineering required
