What will you own?
- Organize the compliance aspect of programs by preparing schedules, compiling cost estimates, and identifying required resources including test laboratories and equipment.
- Research, identify, and understand applicable regulatory compliance standards and codes, with a particular focus on safety and EMC.
- Work closely with design engineers to communicate relevant compliance constraints, explore solution spaces, and identify and resolve uncertainties in interpretation of standards. Participate in design reviews.
- Qualify new components and secure relevant documentation and certificates from suppliers as needed.
- Coordinate with technical leads to assemble documentation and reports that are needed for compliance, such as critical component lists and risk/hazard assessments.
- Coordinate with test labs to request quotes, schedule testing, review test reports, and secure compliance certificates.
- Work with technicians at test lab facilities to help ensure that testing is performed promptly and correctly, and that the device under test is kept operational.
- Collaborate with engineers to debug, root cause, and resolve compliance issues as they arise. Recommend product and process changes, and initiate engineering change orders as needed.
- Track and understand emerging compliance engineering practices and standards. Participate in educational opportunities and professional organizations. Read professional publications and maintain personal networks.
Although we list out what we generally look for, we are very likely missing other attributes and skills that you have that could make you a great fit, but are not currently listed. Research has shown this especially applies to women and other marginalized groups, who tend to apply if they check 100% of every box, versus men who apply if they hit roughly 60%. The point were getting at, it doesnt hurt to take a chance and apply!
