Job Description:

The Company:

Faraday Future (FF) is a California-based mobility company, leveraging the latest technologies and world's best talent to realize exciting new possibilities in mobility. We're producing user-centric, technology-first vehicles to establish new paradigms in human-vehicle interaction. We're not just seeking to change how our cars work - we're seeking to change the way we drive. At FF, we're creating something new, something connected, and something with a true global impact.

Your Role:

The Design and Release engineer of Body Systems will be responsible for leading the design, development and engineering activities for Body System Components including, Charge Port doors, Door Handles, Latches, Hinges, Wiper system, and other mechanisms that are in development.

The engineer will ensure compliance of the designs with all vehicle attributes, regulations, technical, functional and structural requirements, quality objectives, program milestones, deliverables and specific targets (performance, cost, weight, safety, timing, etc.).

You will develop unique and advanced engineering concepts and designs, leading innovation and advanced technologies for the Body Systems. Recent concepts, designs and production parts have moved body systems ahead as part of the initial customer experience.

The role will initiate and coordinate studies and drive decisions regarding designing new body systems components versus using or modifying existing, off-the-shelf, mechanisms from high end suppliers.
