With customers at its core, Stack AV is focused on revolutionizing the way businesses transport goods, designing solutions to alleviate long-standing issues that have plagued the trucking industry including driver shortages, lagging efficiency in uptime per vehicle, overarching safety concerns, high operating costs, and elevated emission levels. By building safe and efficient autonomous trucking solutions, Stack AV is creating better and smarter supply chains for its partners, improving business outcomes for its customers, delivering goods to end-users faster, and ultimately moving the trucking industry forward.
What We're Looking for:
We are looking for people who are passionate about delivering self-driving (L4) products that make the way we move safer, faster, and more efficient. We seek mission-driven, highly skilled people with deep experience in fast-paced, rapidly growing, tech development environments.
Specifically, we are looking for safety engineers to help develop safe, reliable, and performant self-driving systems for autonomous trucks that will perform long-distance transportation of goods. As a safety engineer, we need your expertise to analyze proposed designs from a hazard analysis perspective and work with hardware and software teams to identify technical approaches, designs, and test strategies. As an early-stage startup, in addition to developing the product, we must also design and implement our engineering processes that will be used to develop our product with the supporting safety pedigree.
We are mission-driven to develop, test, and field a product quickly that solves our customers’ needs, while also conducting that development to the high degree of engineering rigor necessary for autonomous vehicles operating on public roadways. Particularly in safety engineering roles, we are looking for candidates who can work in a highly cross-functional environment and think holistically about a complex system of systems. For self-driving, this role requires proven skills with traditional safety engineering approaches, but also the ability to develop new practical approaches for Safety Of The Intended Function (SOTIF) and how to validate real-world AI systems.
What Success Looks Like:
- Analyze software designs, from a holistic system design, hazard analysis, and safety standpoint.
- Analyze hardware designs, with a strong focus on electrical considerations, from a holistic system design, hazard analysis, and system safety standpoint. Hardware designs range across sensors, computing, actuators, and vehicle equipment.
- Analyze system, hardware, and software designs to identify fault conditions and identify strategies to: mitigate faults; detect and annunciate faults; and execute minimum risk maneuvers.
- Develop detailed safety requirements.
- Contribute to development of the safety case for the complete system and help ensure it is comprehensive and complete.
- Provide guidance, subject matter expertise, and mentorship to the broader product development organization on safety engineering topics.
- Apply subject matter expertise of standards such as ISO-26262, ISO 21448 (SOTIF), and UL 4600 in the development of on-road autonomous vehicles.
- SOTIF FocusDevelop robust, scalable, practical approaches to rigorously validate that the system makes safe decisions given the context in non-fault scenarios Build and maintain SOTIF scenario ontologiesIdentify and implement methodologies for discovery of new/unique scenarios from on-road test dataDevelop and guide simulation scenario generation and test plans for evaluating system performance against SOTIF scenario ontologies.
We are proud to be an equal-opportunity workplace. We believe that diverse teams produce the best ideas and outcomes. We are committed to building a culture of inclusion, entrepreneurship, and innovation across gender, race, age, sexual orientation, religion, disability, and identity.
