At TE, you will unleash your potential working with people from diverse backgrounds and industries to create a safer, sustainable and more connected world. 

Job Overview

TE Connectivity’s R&D/Product Development Engineering Teams conceive original ideas for new products, introduce them into practice. They are responsible for product development, and qualification from market definition through production and release; assist in the qualification of suppliers for new products to ensure suppliers deliver quality parts, materials, and services for new or improved manufacturing processes; conduct feasibility studies, testing on new and modified designs; direct and support detailed design, testing, prototype fabrication and manufacturing ramp. The R&D/Product Development Engineering Teams provide all required product documentation including, but not limited to, Solid Model, 2D/3D production drawings, product specifications, and testing requirements. They create and modify detailed drawings and drafting or conceptual models from layouts, rough sketches or notes and contribute to design modifications to facilitate manufacturing operation or quality of product. Typical fields of expertise include: materials, mechanics and systems, electrical, optics, chemistry, software, automation systems, packaging, testing and measurement, and manufacturing of electrical, mechanical and electronic components, products, and their integration into systems.


  • Provide technical support, failure analyses and problem-solving assistance on product issues related to design or function, manufacturing, quality, or application.  
  • Work closely with internal teams and customers on product change management and the design/development of product family extensions or customer driven initiatives for use in new applications.   Maintain engineering control of product related documentation via the engineering change management system.
  • Develop and execute product validation test plans in close consultation with the engineering team, customer, and central test lab personnel.
  • Communicate product performance requirements effectively through CAD data, production drawings, application, and performance specifications. 
  • Work closely with the new product launch teams and provide engineering support to ensure smooth launch and transition of products into the manufacturing plant. 
  • Identify and implement cost saving initiatives to provide design and/or manufacturing process advantage.  
  • Establish method to track ongoing product/process issues and document corrective actions taken to address these.   Communicate with and update development teams accordingly, to enable continuous improvement cycle in product design and manufacturing process. 
  • Provide engineering support for activities related to additional manufacturing capacity tooling, tool transfers or other changes that are required at the production facilities to maintain TE’s competitive advantage.

Candidate desired profile
