If you are looking to solve one of today’s most complex engineering challenges, see the results of your work in hundreds of self-driving cars, and make a positive impact in the world starting in our cities, join us.

About the role: 

The VHM & Diagnostics team is looking for an experienced systems engineer who can lead the requirements specification and architectural design of diagnostics for the autonomous driving system. This position will be a great opportunity for someone with experience in existing diagnostic concepts in automotive or other safety-critical applications to apply their knowledge to the autonomous vehicle space.

Day-to-day responsibilities include:
  • Drive discussions with SW, embedded, and HW engineering teams to develop the overall diagnostic architecture.
  • Generate requirements for the health management system including detection and mitigation mechanisms needed to ensure the functional safety of the vehicle.
  • Develop diagnostic strategies at all layers of implementation from autonomous SW applications (mapping, planning, perception, etc.) down to HW components (CPU/GPU, memory, I/O buses, etc.). 
  • Develop Concept of Operations for new projects describing the use-cases for diagnostics during the entire lifecycle of the autonomous driving system from manufacturing to decommissioning.
  • Perform analysis or simulation to determine timing and other performance metrics for the diagnostic functions in order to meet vehicle-level hazard metrics.

You should apply for this role if you have the following qualifications:

  • 5-7 years experience minimum in Systems, Integration, or SW/HW engineering working on safety and time-critical products (automotive, aerospace, industrial, robotics, etc.) 
  • Specific knowledge of and experience with developing diagnostic and safety systems for these products
  • Experience writing requirements, developing rationale for requirements, and drawing architecture diagrams
  • Knowledge of systems engineering principles including requirements analysis, decomposition/allocation and traceability, ConOps development, and top down thinking. 
  • Strong communicator who can proactively bring cross-functional teams together to get alignment.
  • Experience working with embedded SW and HW components including knowledge of common architectures for both.
  • Automotive domain knowledge a plus including ECUs, CAN, LIN, UDS, DTCs, DoIP, DoCAN, etc. but not required.
