Systems Engineer, Advanced EVS

Electrical Engineering | San Jose, CA | Full Time

Job Description

About Us:

Tula’s core philosophy is built on the idea that every engine or motor, whether gas, diesel or electric, has a so-called “sweet spot” of efficient operation. Tula’s DSF and DMD control strategies are designed to have engines (both gasoline and diesel) and motors operate a greater percentage of time at (or near) their natural sweet spots, and in the process, fuel/energy is saved and emissions are reduced. Tula’s DSF technology has been recognized by the International Council of Clean Transportation (ICCT) as being one of the technologies that are essential for helping global automakers meet fuel efficiency mandates. We have over 150 issued patents and over 150 more pending.
