We create smart innovations to meet the mobility challenges of today and tomorrow. We design and manufacture a complete range of transportation systems, from high-speed trains to electric buses and driverless trains, as well as infrastructure, signalling and digital mobility solutions. Joining us means joining a truly global community of more than 75 000 people dedicated to solving real-world mobility challenges and achieving international projects with sustainable local impact.  

If you’re ambitious, driven and team-spirited, this is your opportunity to build a career as Electrical Subsystems Engineer TCMS based at Milton, Brisbane.


Purpose of the Role:


Design, analyse, develop, test and demonstrate engineering rollingstock solutions that solve the requirements. Provide cost and schedule estimates on engineering programs. Provide technical expertise in support of other departments.


The Subsystems Engineer applies the principles of system engineering to the sub system architecture, interfaces, integration and design and to the selection of major components, nominally Train Control and Management Systems (TCMS), event recorders, CCTV, Passenger information Systems, propulsion and axillary systems.


He/She performs design assignments requiring initiative, resourcefulness and design experience and provides advice and guidance to other engineers or designers.


Key Responsibilities:


1. Systems Engineer:

Manages the functional and technical interface between Vehicle Engineering and TCMS Engineering according to the vehicle engineering process and provides a single point of contact in expertise for all functional and technical topics of a subsystem, working in the multidisciplinary project team. Designs engineering interfaces, gathers and analyses technical data, solves design problems, performs trade-off and coordination studies, develops reliability, safety and maintainability approaches, and decides on optimum design approach.


2. Manages Technical Delivery:

Develops and reviews technical specifications, estimates costs and schedules, plans his/her own work and participates on an engineering design team and manages the technical delivery and compliance of sub-systems suppliers’ deliveries.

6. Integrator:

Assemble software and/or hardware items through all levels up to form a complete subsystem (e.g. TCMS Platform Architecture or TCMS user application software), according to the architectural and design specifications.


7. Validator / Software Validator:

Examine and judge whether an item fits the user needs, especially in regards of safety, quality, and operating environment. The validator ensures that the developed solution meets the requirements and can operate in the environment needed. Tests, demonstrates and documents engineering designs, develops system test procedures, assembles, and commissions test lab validation facilities and participates in design reviews internally and with customers.
