Role description

As Cockpit Electronics Engineer within the Silk-FAW Automotive electrical team you will lead the development activities for various cockpit components and systems on all future Silk-FAW hyper and super road cars.

The Cockpit Electronics team is responsible for the elements interfacing the car with its passengers, through the definition of a state-of-the-art HMI/UX supported by cutting-edge technologies inside the electronic components and systems, ensuring a breath-taking experience through the main human body senses: visual, audible and tactile.
The electronics include driver information, infotainment and passengers entertainment systems, displays, telematics and communication systems, emergency call systems, audio systems, cameras, head-up-display projections, smartphone mirroring, switches, as well as peripheral components like antennas, USB pods, and smartphone wireless chargers.
The responsibility over both HMI/UX and above-mentioned components stretches from concept definition, technical specification, development, validation and delivery into series production, covering both hardware and software worlds.

The individual tasks will include definition and development of various systems, creation of functional requirements, test cases and procedures, test executions both statically on test bench and dynamically in vehicles, proof of concept development, as well as supplier management and business reviews.
