Sensata Technologies, Inc. New College Grad: Product Design Engineer (Electrical) in Attleboro, Massachusetts

At this moment, it is likely that you own twenty or more Sensata products. Our devices are hard at work helping to keep your home and vehicle safe, energy efficient, and environmentally sound. Sensata serves numerous industries; from automotive to aircraft to appliances to telecommunications. We are one of the world’s leading suppliers of sensors, electrical protection, and power management solutions.

Our work is "inside the black-box" at the intersection of electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, and business disciplines. We design and manufacture products that convert physical phenomena (e.g., pressure, temperature, acceleration, position, speed, current, humidity, etc.) into electrical signals using a wide variety of transducer technologies. The electrical signals are then filtered, amplified, digitized, and transmitted to our customers' systems (in digital or analog form) using signal conditioning circuitry implemented in microprocessors or application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs) custom-designed in-house.

Sensata specializes in products that are “mission critical” to control essential systems (e.g., related to automotive brake performance, engine emissions, solar panel safety, and refrigeration efficiency). Our products must function properly (often in harsh conditions); design for robust electromagnetic compatibility (EMC), and ESD withstand are crucial.

Reporting to a design engineering manager, the Product Design Engineer is responsible for the full product life cycle [initial customer contact, technology selection, conceptual design, supplier and process inputs, detail design, cost optimization, prototyping, development testing, qualification testing, production launch, tear-down analysis, customer technical support, and continuous improvements]. Sensata engineers take on a great deal of responsibility very quickly, and they succeed with the mentoring and guidance of more experienced colleagues. Sensata’s culture is collaborative; global, cross-functional teaming is the norm.

Successful candidates will be able to:

  • apply fundamental engineering concepts (esp. circuit design, analog-to-digital conversion, signal processing, and statistics) to solve complex, unfamiliar, and novel problems

  • clearly and concisely communicate complex information to peers, managers, and customers

  • take initiative and think creatively

  • overcome obstacles and tenaciously drive to achieve goals

  • achieve results with teams, as a colleague and as a leader

  • have innate curiosity and desire to understand, to improve, and to push boundaries is important


  • B.S., M.Eng., or M.S. in electrical engineering (from an accredited program, completed prior to start date).

  • 3.0/4.0 grade point average minimum.

  • 0-3 years of industry experience.

  • U.S. citizen or U.S. permanent resident is required for this position unless you have an M.Eng/M.S or above

Our employees are the reason we have been successful in the past and the reason we will be successful in the future. Employees’ skills, talents and work ethic have defined the business and will shape our collective future.

Our Vision is to be:

  • A world leader and early innovator in mission-critical sensors and electrical protection

  • Satisfying the world’s growing need for safety, energy efficiency and a clean environment

  • A partner, employer, and neighbor of choice
