This work includes throttle, braking, steering, a variety of operator controls, integration of supplier systems, coordination and control of all driving sub-systems, and low level vehicle controls. You will work closely with vehicle engineers, systems engineers, controls engineers, and suppliers to ensure the Zoox vehicle can drive safely and reliably. We are looking for people who are passionate about working with hardware and developing production quality-code for complex dynamic systems.
Design, develop, and test embedded software for controlling the Zoox vehicle
Integrate supplier sub-systems into the Zoox software stack, including defining requirements and interfaces, leading software technical communication, and supporting on-site testing and integration.
Create software requirements, design documentation, test plans, and other supporting documentation
Work cross-functionally with vehicle engineers, controls engineers, systems engineers, validation engineers, and other experts to ensure safe and robust operation of the Zoox vehicle
Contribute to all phases of the software development cycle including prototyping, requirements capture, design, implementation, validation, and support
Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in computer science, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, or equivalent experience
3+ years experience developing real-time embedded software for distributed electro-mechanical systems
Strong embedded C/C++ programming experience
Experience with embedded microcontrollers and microprocessors (ARM, PowerPC)
Familiarity with modern software development methodologies and tools (Agile, Git, unit testing, CI, etc.)
Understanding of EV sub-systems, sensors and actuators, and automotive communication protocols
Knowledge of vehicle dynamics and control systems
Experience with CAN, LIN analysis and debugging tools (PCAN, CANalyzer, CANape, etc.)
Experience with real-time operating systems (POSIX, QNX, FreeRTOS)
Familiarity with high assurance development practices and tools (Polarion, ISO-26262, MISRA C/C++, etc.)
