As the number of connected electronics products continue to grow for Allegion, the need to drive system architecture, reuse, and leadership in multidisciplinary integration of our software and electronics designs is increasing.

In early phases of new projects, you will work with marketing, product management, sales, and end customers to properly scope requirements to define initial design concepts with appropriate cross-functional team members. Later phases of programs focus on the integration, verification, and validation of the final product individually as well as within larger ecosystems. Throughout, the Lead Systems Engineer is responsible for coordinating technical execution to ensure the various aspects of the design are properly implemented for successful product launch.
