With our North American headquarters located in Michigan, DENSO employs more than 24,000 people at 28 consolidated subsidiaries and 4 affiliates across the North American region. Worldwide, the company has more than 200 subsidiaries and affiliates in 38 countries and regions and employs more than 170,000 people. Consolidated global sales for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2018, totaled US$48.1 billion.

The selected individual will be involved in DENSO electronic module development with such responsibilities as:

  • Design electronic module casing, per design constrains and requirements. List multiple design options and propose best one;
  • Design achieved through the use of various types of mechanical analysis, design for manufacturability, 3D CAD modeling and 2D CAD drawings.
  • Responsible for thermal modeling of selected electronic module, considering thermal radiation, and design tolerance;
  • Responsible for prototype sample making, simulations and evaluations, environmental/durability testing and investigation;
  • For mass production, creates and/or directs the creation and verification of product drawings. Reviews drawings and engineering changes and implement changes as necessary;
  • Establishes critical check items. Checks drawings according to DENSO standard, customer standards and past experience. Creates and checks product dimensioning and Geometric Dimensioning & Tolerance (GD&T).
