Job Description:

We are breaking the bond between the diesel engine and diesel fuel. Altering a traditional engine to burn plant-based, low-carbon liquid fuels-Our engines maintain the same rugged performance of a diesel engine at a much lower cost, while providing a 45% reduction in carbon emissions. -

Position Summary
We are looking for a reliability engineer with experience in the heavy-duty engine space to improve the robustness of the test fleet vehicles engines as applied to their target applications.
This individual will carry out activities needed to proactively identify, detect, and prevent failures and improve the reliability of our fleet trucks.
The right individual will have strong analytical foundations and extensive mechanical engineering experience in product design and development.
This individual will manage critical reliability activities with our engines to meet business reliability expectations.

Essential Duties and Responsibilities
--- Main responsibility will be to build test and validation plans and process to evaluate product reliability based on physics-of-failure (PoF) from simulations and provide feedback to meet reliability goals.
--- Stress-test product offerings to identify potential failure modes in advance of customer testing.
--- Investigate product failures, understand mechanisms, recommend appropriate action, owns problem resolution and documents results (e.g., Failure Reporting, Analysis, and Corrective Action System FRACAS)
--- Engage with engineering and other stake holders and make recommendations based on run to failure testing and stress vs strength analysis.
--- Apply problem-solving and analytical skills to conduct failure analysis
--- Design, analyze, and report results of product safety, performance, and reliability tests to key staff members
--- Design and implement a reliable probabilistic method for analyzing fatigue failures
--- Design Experiments to understand reliability analysis.
