Job Description

At Alstom, we understand transport networks and what moves people. From high-speed trains, metros, monorails, and trams, to turnkey systems, services, infrastructure, signalling and digital mobility, we offer our diverse customers the broadest portfolio in the industry. Every day, more than 80 000 colleagues lead the way to greener and smarter mobility worldwide, connecting cities as we reduce carbon and replace cars.

Alstom India - Engineering - Bangalore

At the helm of companies committed to a greener future, Alstom creates smart innovations to develop mobility solutions that provide the sustainable foundations for the future of transport. We design and manufacture a complete range of transportation systems, from high-speed trains, metros, monorails to driverless trains, as well as infrastructure, signalling and digital mobility solutions.

Joining us means joining a caring, responsible and innovative company with global community of more than75000people solving real-world mobility challenges and paving the way for greener and smarter mobility with sustainable local impact.


As part of the development of innovative traction systems using energy storage systems, the Alstom Bangalore site is strengthening its Battery System department by recruiting new battery experts. We work across disciplines to transform improved hardware and software elements into a single, integrated design.

Join us, and you will help us innovate new battery technologies that continually outperform the previous iterations.

By collaborating with other product development groups across Alstom, you will craft creative battery solutions that deliver more energy in smaller spaces than ever before.

As a team, you will push the industry boundaries of what batteries can do and improve the product experience for our customers across the world!

In this role, you will be developing world-class green battery solutions that lead the industry in quality and performance, drive customer results, and make a difference in people's lives. Do you have a passion for invention and self-challenge

As part of our Battery Engineering group, his/her mission is to assure the introduction of new BMS technology for development of green battery systems for railway traction and auxiliary applications.The BMS Architecture Engineer is responsible for coordinating the research, evaluation and validation steps of new traction and auxiliary battery BMS solutions.

He/She must follow the state of the art, define and structure the validation steps of new BMS technologies.

He/She is responsible for the documentation of solutions, the follow-up of their application in the project and the growth of reliability.

Main Responsibilities

In this role, you will utilize your electronics design skills to design, develop and test battery monitoring system for next generation traction and auxiliary batteries. Responsibilities include:-

  • Review high-level battery requirements and translate them into BMS-level specifications.
  • Design BMS from concept to mass production focusing on detailed board level design, detailed design analysis, selection of electronic parts, circuit boards, integrated circuits & components to meet the performance targets.
  • Analyze the design with simulation tools and calculations to verify its conformance to the requirements. (e.g. PSPICE, ANSYS, Verilog or equivalent).
  • Develop schematics and BOMs to satisfy the design requirements. Specify custom parts and PCBs for use in BMS.
  • Develop lay-out guidelines for PCBs and guide Layout Engineers to meet all physical and electrical requirements of BMS.
  • Push the boundaries of technologies to maximise performance and minimise volume.
  • Work with suppliers to develop custom parts where needed and design test methodologies to verify the BMS design.
  • Collaborate with cross-functional teams (Product Design, System EE, Cell Engineering, Firmware, Algorithms, etc.) to ensure the product is developed on time and on budget
  • Create and manage tasks related to Verification and Validation (V&V), including the development of Design Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (DFMEA).
  • Provide support to Functional Safety and Cybersecurity teams, collaborating to ensure the safety and security of Battery Management Systems.
  • Conduct design reviews, incorporate team feedbacks and release the design documents for builds.
  • Specify production test methods and limits and work with industry partners to realize design.
  • Conduct design validation on prototypes to implement the design.
  • Conduct investigations and prepare reports for problems or issues.
  • Ensure Battery Monitoring System effectively monitors warranty-related data such as State of Health (SoH), State of Power (SoP), warnings and instances, and cyclic & calendar life counters.

Qualification, Knowledge & Experience

  • BTech/ MTech degree in electrical/ electronic / computer/ control engineering.
  • Strong EE Fundamentals in electronic circuit design/ development with microcontroller-based embedded systems.
  • More than 5 years relevant industry experience in Battery Management System (BMS) design, development, or testing, preferably in railway, aviation or automative industry.
  • Possess strong understanding of BMS functionalities, including hardware and software components, HV/LV topologies, and system architecture.
  • Experience in analog and/or power electronics design, Schematics capture and PCB lay-out design for mixed signal boards.
  • Good knowledge of inter-module communications protocols.
  • Knowledge of scripting for test automation and data analysis desired.
  • Strong documentation and communication skills.
  • Knowledge of Functional Safety and Cybersecurity principles is a plus.
  • Knowledge of Technical Project Management. Training/ certification is a plus.
  • Knowledge of industrial development cycles (V-cycle, quality reviews, ...).
  • Fluency in English(spoken and written) required for internal and external communications.

Additional Requirements

  • Passionate about engineering, result-oriented, and proactive.
  • Self-starter with excellent time management skills and curious spirit.
  • Proven ability to work independently under high pressure and comfortable working in a dynamic environment.
  • Problem-solving skills and the ability to apply methodologies to address technical challenges effectively.
  • Excellent communication skills and the ability to collaborate with cross-functional teams.
  • Understanding of the needs of customers, strength of proposal, responsiveness, autonomy, teamwork and ability to convince will all be qualities necessary for success on the job.
  • Willing for international travel required to support development activities.

You don't need to be a train enthusiast to thrive with us. We guarantee that when you step onto one of our trains with your friends or family, you'll be proud. If you're up for the challenge, we'd love to hear from you!
