Role description

As a Software Engineer you will be part of the Software development team in the Silk-FAW Software & Electronics unit.
The Software Engineer requires individuals to create, develop and maintain software life cycle, software architecture and tools to support the activities of the whole software development groups as well as those from other technical groups, facilitating the development of vehicle performance.
Moreover is involved in different topics of the Chassis, Powertrain and ADAS teams to develop and deliver advanced control systems matching or exceeding customer expectations, while considering the intrinsic embedded nature of the final solution.

  • Create innovative software solutions based on the requirements of other technical user groups
  • Define the control system software requirements, software specification and software structure for automotive applications
  • Implement the software architecture and strategies, requirements for closed loop control algorithms, and related software control logic
  • Further develop existing software control logics to achieve aims for more robust and efficient embedded implementation, and to assist planning a route for such development
  • Execution of the unit test, modules integration test, integration with the EE
    hardware, software verifications
  • Promote modern working practices in software engineering – CI/CD/DevOps, Model Based Design, test driven development, AUTOSAR architectures, etc.
  • Reviews progress of projects and provides frequent progress updates to direct manager
