We are seeking a Product Engineering (PE) team leader to support Server products within Lenovo’s Infrastructure Solutions Group (ISG) product portfolio. Lenovo's ISG is innovating the future-defined data center, today. From the simplest to the most complex IT environments for all types of workloads, our servers, storage, networking and solutions help maximize the potential of data centers. The Server PE provides Level 3 technical support to the field, interfacing with Level 1 / 2 to resolve the more complex and/or urgent customer escalations. The Server PE works directly with development, quality and/or manufacturing engineers to isolate and help perform root cause analysis of defect issues. The Server PE also provides field communications such as Service Tips and fix releases, drives field action plans to address design and/or quality issues, manages the technical resolution plan for pervasive field issues, and drives lessons learned through a closed loop continuous improvement process. Product Engineering support begins just prior to product introduction by participating in the Ship Support sign-off and continues through the product life cycle until end-of-life.

  • Setup systems with customer configuration in the lab to replicate reported field failures. 
  • Instrument lab debug equipment (e.g. oscilloscope, analyzers) to isolate and debug complex failures. 
  • Develop field action plans to address design/quality issues which have affected customers including: Stop ships, field communications (Service Tips and Notable issues), Engineering Change (EC) generation, and rolling Field Replaceable Unit (FRU) stock when necessary 
  • Travel to provide on-site assistance to resolve critical situations (when required). 
  • Participate in pre-product release activities; take technical positions for defect deferrals and HW design changes and approve product readiness for ship support. 
  • Maintain key data for products assigned (specifications, publications, Tech Tips, defects, engineering changes and history, product roadmaps, and lifecycle management).
  • Conduct lessons learned reviews in a quality closed loop process as part of driving continuous improvement of products and processes. 

Basic Qualifications: 

  • 5+ years of hands-on experience with Intel x86 or AMD servers 
  • 5+ years of experience in a technical engineering role doing hardware problem determination and troubleshooting 

Preferred Qualifications: 

  • Bachelor’s Degree in Engineering (e.g. Electrical or Computer or Mechanical) or Computer Science
