* Contribute to the preparation of technical documentation related to customers' offers
* Design and develop components as required for lift truck vehicles
* Design and develop assemblies as required for lift truck vehicles and order prototype parts
* Evaluate component design and assembly, build prototype vehicles, design and evaluate systems and plan and execute prototype test activities
* Provide design specification documentation as required to manufacture the product such as detail drawings, engineering list structure and ECN writing
* Provide product/process specification documents, detailed drawings/software development, test engineering reports, sales and product information data and test plans
* Develop product around the most efficient and cost effective manufacturing processes, and provide on-site Engineering support during critical Manufacturing activities such as Pilot and 1st Production; integrate Manufacturing/Purchasing input basic design
* Participate in the development of project concepts which meet the requirements of HYG's Product Line Strategy Groups and satisfies the customers' needs, such as design input to project proposals, conduct competitive truck reviews and participate in marketing/field input activities
* Devise plans for component strategy creation that take advantage of unapparent opportunities given technology advances aligned with corporate vision 
* Develop, design, release, test and follow up development activities to ensure that the engineering outputs meet the quality, reliability, performance, and cost expectations of the customer.
* Collaborate and provide support to the Manufacturing, Sourcing, Marketing, and Aftermarket groups engaged in the project.
* Develop system and component level requirements from truck level requirements
* Support development testing to ensure design robustness to requirements.
* Develop and execute test plans (DVP&R, validation, etc.) for complete vehicle, system, and components
* Analyze data and communicate test results both verbally and through written reports
* Provide product/process specification documents, detailed drawings, test engineering reports, sales and product information data and test plans
  
The Electrical Engineer Will Meet the Following Minimum Qualifications:
* B.S. Electrical Engineering
* Minimum 3 - 5 years experience in electrical (at system and component level design), using schematic capture and wiring diagram tools
* Specialized knowledge/skill in C Programming language, strongly preferred

* Innovative thinking, troubleshooting and problem solving.
* Attention to Quality: Follow established procedures and be attentive to details to ensure accuracy in design and documentation.
* Decision Making: Exhibit good judgment and a realistic understanding of issues; demonstrate ability to take decisive actions to develop product.
* Systematic Problem solving: Demonstrate ability to apply basic principles and methods to resolve product issues.
* Travel may be required (less than 25% total time)
* Manage the engineering concept, design, release, and follow up development activities to ensure that the engineering outputs meet the quality, reliability, performance, and cost expectations of the customer
* Develop and manage the engineering plan / schedule for the project
* Manage the engineering activities required to support the Manufacturing, Sourcing, Marketing, and Aftermarket groups engaged in the project.
* Take a leadership role in identifying and implementing improved processes for product innovation, reliability and cost, development efficiency, customer responsiveness, and overall quality of work
* Work with partner companies and suppliers to deliver total truck performance
