What we can offer you?
In addition to a competitive Salary we have a comprehensive health plan with all premiums covered for you and your dependents. We provide life insurance including income protection and critical illness cover alongside an unlimited paid holiday plan so that you can make the most of your time away from work
We promise to do our best to make being part of the team the ultimate benefit with cutting edge technologies to work on and an environment centered on transparency, trust, action, curiosity, independence and design.
This environment is fostered with various ancillary benefits such as a reimbursement for pre-approved team activities, our annual team retreat, snacks & drinks, daily lunch, summer barbecues and other events.
As a controls engineer, you will develop core algorithms for our“digital ride” control system. You will be participating in solving challenging problems in a complex intelligent control system that includes hydraulics, electronics, and mechanical components for high-end customer applications. The control system also incorporates cloud-based, vision-based, and artificial intelligence technologies.
This role is more geared towards research and development. Although there are some clear objectives, this role will require an individual who is passionate, and capable of being semi-autonomous in getting work done.
Build and use models to simulate and test control algorithms, evaluating and verifying all aspects of dynamic behavior at both component and system level.
Conceive test scenarios and coordinate with other teams to conduct extensive system + vehicle level testing on high-end prototype vehicles(mules)
Support root-cause investigations, data processing and analysis of results from simulations and actuator/vehicle testing.
Contribute to architecture/strategy/algorithm design reviews with team members.
Work within the Matlab/Simulink development environment, with occasional work in python.
Collaborate and work w/ embedded software team to transfer and optimize control algorithms in an embedded environment.
Team player, ability to multi-task, and ability to operate in a fast-paced, changing environment.
Essential Qualification and Experience
Strong background + intuition w/ robust + optimal control(including Model Predictive Control), feed-forward + feedback systems, system identification, signal conditioning + filtering, state estimation(kalman filters), reinforcement learning, etc.
Proof of previous research experience / examples of solving non-trivial problems either on a team or independently.
Strong experience with Matlab/Simulink and Python.
BS in Mechanical Engineering, Systems Engineering, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Mechatronics and/or relevant working experience.
2+ years experience in controls development and/or system testing.
Preferable Qualifications and Experience
Experience w/ active chassis control systems(i.e active/semi-active suspension systems, steering(EPS, rear steering), brake systems(ABS/ESC), etc).
Machine learning experience –(specifically w/ LSTMs, RNNs, CNNs). Big plus for previous time series analysis work.
Familiarity w/ mapping + localization(i.e SLAM, Inertial Navigation), and general intuition/knowledge on how autonomous cars work + common problems.
Experience with CAN communication, general understanding of sensors(GPS, accelerometers, wheel encoder sensors, IMUs/gyros, etc) + fault detection.
Creation + evaluation of full-vehicle simulations using industry-standard tools such as CarSim, SimPack, etc.(we’re innovating in this space as well!)
