AI generated summary

  • You have a Bachelor's in Engineering, experience with automotive components, including HVAC. Strong understanding of voltage, power, current, fluid pressure, flow. Enjoy hands-on lab work, building things, problem-solving. Familiar with sensors, modeling, and coding a plus.
  • You will assist with setting up and running component, module, and pack-level tests, work in the lab to wire sensors, build test setups, and analyze data. You will also own long-term projects and assist with data collection and analysis using LabVIEW and Python.

Summer Internship

EngineeringGarden Grove


  • As an intern working with Harbinger's Testing team, you will play an active role in characterizing and validating the vehicle battery and various vehicle components. You will support the testing team by running electrical and thermal performance tests on vehicle battery packs and vehicle components, and learn how to grade pack/component performance based on your test results. You will help support offsite pack safety testing and get a crash course on best practices to test for, and ultimately avoid, full-pack thermal runaway. You will learn how to design instrumentation and test fixture setups that produce the data you are looking for. We have many opportunities depending on your interests to advance your knowledge of EV batteries and components in this rapidly expanding field. This intern is for the summer period, with dates flexible depending on school calendars.


  • A student or recent graduate with a Bachelors' in Engineering.
  • Experience with automotive components, automotive HVAC experience is a plus. Good understanding of basic principles and relationships between voltage, power, and current as well as those between fluid pressure and flow.
  • The ideal candidate is looking forward to a hands-on, lab-work position that implements a learn-by-doing approach. Applicant that enjoys working with their hands, likes building things, and has an uncanny ability to make things work despite the obstacles will do best in this role.
  • Previous experience with sensors like thermistors, thermocouples, pressure transducers, and flowmeters.
  • Experience modeling with CATIA is a plus, but not required. Similarly, past history using LabVIEW, Python, or National Instruments cDAQ/cRIO including CAN would be useful.
