Level 5, part of Woven Planet, is developing self-driving technology using a machine-learned approach to create safe mobility for everyone. Our goal is to build level 4 autonomous vehicles to improve personal transportation on a global scale. Woven Planet is a software-first subsidiary of Toyota whose vision is to create mobility of people, goods, and information that everyone can enjoy and trust.
As part of Woven Planet, Level 5 has the backing of one of the world’s largest automakers, the talent to deliver on our goal, and the opportunity for near-term product impact and revenue—a combination rarely seen in the AV industry.
Level 5 is looking for doers and creative problem solvers to join us in improving mobility for everyone with self-driving technology. We’ve built a diverse and talented group of software and hardware engineers, and each has the opportunity to make a meaningful impact on our self-driving stack.
Our team of more than 300 works in brand new garages and labs in Palo Alto, tests AVs at our dedicated test track in the Silicon Valley, and explores the AV industry’s most compelling research problems at our office in London. With support from more than 800 Woven Planet colleagues in Tokyo, Level 5’s work to improve the future of mobility spans the globe. And we’re moving fast — in Level 5’s first 18 months, we launched an employee pilot, and are now testing our fourth generation vehicle platform in San Francisco. Learn more at level-5.global.
Woven Planet North America offers a great opportunity to join the team of systems engineering and functional safety professionals to help us with the autonomous driving projects we’re working on now. We’re looking for an experienced functional safety engineer with a strong background in the automotive and/or the autonomous driving industry and a sound understanding of the fundamentals of functional safety and systems engineering; the person who knows what it means to do safety proactively and how to make it a key part of every product. We’re expecting you to understand the principles and rationales behind safety, quality and system engineering, related standards and regulations, acknowledging that safety compliance is more than a ticking-the-boxes exercise.
Being a part of the systems engineering team in a highly dynamic environment will give you an opportunity to bring in your vision of future-proof product safety, establish safety culture and participate in multidisciplinary research activities.
- Assisting engineering teams in ISO 26262 process implementation at the system, SW and HW levels.
- Participating in the item definition, ODD, hazardous scenarios identification and update.
- Conducting hazards identification, SOTIF analysis, risk assessment and FMEA sessions.
- Developing functional and technical safety concepts.
- Developing safety requirements and cascading them to lower level requirements with establishing cross-architecture mapping and bi-directional traceability.
- Participation in the validation of the safety goals as well as all the requirements at different levels.
- Participation in internal safety assessments for the products.
- Internal training sessions on ISO 26262, functional safety and SOTIF (ISO 21448).
- Promoting the safety culture across the company together with the team.
- Contributing to establish reliable development processes and quality management elements to maintain functional safety processes.
- Developing rigorous approaches and methods in safety research.
Key Skills Required
- At least 3 years hands-on experience on ISO 26262 (at least 2 years in the role of automotive functional safety engineer).
- Strong experience with safety-related systems (e.g. ECUs, BCMs, High-performance automotive compute systems)
- Experience with either safety case production or functional safety confirmation activities.
- Knowledge of requirements and task management tools (JAMA and JIRA desired).
- Understanding of model-based development within functional safety processes.
- Strong understanding of analysis techniques: FMEA, FTA, HAZOP, FMEDA.
- Basic understanding of reliability engineering required to support random failures metrics analysis for the functional safety (lambda-prediction, reliability testing approaches, EE HW architectural metrics calculation).
- Official functional safety or reliability certification: TUV FSEng, CFSP, ASQ Reliability Engineer or similar.
