What you’ll be doing

As an Embedded Software Engineer you will support the development and integration activities for electronic control systems within our Inverter and Control Platforms team.  The team is responsible for all aspects of the design and development of bespoke On Car ECUs for both powertrain and body. The development activities will be varied and cover software both at hardware abstraction and application level and for single and multi-processor target platforms.

A typical work week would include:

Development and configuration of C-embedded software running on AUTOSAR platform, meeting exacting functional and safety requirements through all prototype and production phases of development. The wide range of design tasks and the bespoke target platforms provide a challenging environment suited to an engineer who can work either closely with other members of a multidisciplinary team or independently as required by the demands of the task.
Working with Power Architecture™, Infineon or ARM. The majority of the hardware abstraction software is C, with ETPU microcode where required for time critical areas. The application software is developed within a graphical environment.
Exposure to real time control software.

We’d love to hear from you if you have:

A first-class degree or upper 2nd in a related engineering subject or equivalent experience.
Ability to integrate software components and an understanding of the target hardware environment.
Ability to engage with a broad range of stakeholders and work in a multidisciplinary environment.
A thorough understanding of the Embedded Software development process from System Requirements to design, implementation, verification and test, ideally within a ISO26262, IEC61508 or following processes based on ASPICE or similar.
Understand and can resolve problems at both system and code level.
Solid experience of developing and integrating industry standard components for embedded systems e.g. AUTOSAR Basic Software (BSW).
Register level configuration of devices including MMU, CAN, ADC, SPI.
Operate to MISRA ‘C’ or equivalent standard.
Experience using in circuit development tools, logic analysers, scopes and general lab-based test equipment.

What else you could bring:

Automotive, Aerospace or similar safety critical development environment desirable.
AUTOSAR configuration tools, for example DaVinci, Tresos or Isolaro.
Diagnostic Tools such as CANape, INCA, CANoe.
OBD Diagnostics J1979.
SysML or UML.
Matlab / Simulink / Embedded Coder.
Automotive applications.
ISO26262, safety related requirement capture and testing.
Software and Hardware in the Loop test tools (Polyspace, QAC or LDRA).
Multi core processors.
