Software Engineer for Test Automation (Non-Functional Test)

Software Engineering – Test & Verification
We are AID GmbH: 
AID-Autonomous Intelligent Driving is bringing together the world’s top software, roboticists and AI talent to ignite a human centered revolution in autonomous driving. By understanding the human challenges as well as the engineering ones, the technology we are testing today on the streets of Munich will become the backbone of a universal self-driving system – capable of improving life in urban environments for billions of people. With the agility of a start-up and the support of Audi (VW Group), AID is free to craft an autonomous world that works for everyone – from manufacturers to passengers to city planners to pedestrians. For us, the future isn’t about merely making vehicles more autonomous, it’s about making people more autonomous.

The Scenarios Team is responsible for creating, executing, and maintaining the scenarios that describe and test the behavior of our autonomous driving system. During the verification of our perception stack, the Scenarios Team examines the functionality and interpretability of our AI and machine learning algorithms. The team utilizes a multitude of scenario variations in both a simulated environment and a closed test track to determine the system's behavior in a wide range of possible situations and corner cases. The test results provide feedback on the functional and non-functional qualities of our product to all of AID's development teams.

About the role:

    • You will be empowered to design and implement a framework for automated and explorational execution of non-functional tests.
    • You will work with the Verification and Validation teams to execute non-functional tests in relevant verification environments (Simulation, HIL-Systems, In-Car).
    • You will perform the analysis of test results, creation of test reports, accompanying documentation and recommendations to increase non-functional properties of the system under test.
    • You are encouraged to act as mentors for the organization, developing and enforcing best practices defining high-performance and robust design of the software product.

About you:

    • Strong experience of at least 3 years in embedded software development in C or C++ and a scripting language.
    • Strong system understanding – interaction between hardware and software.
    • Strong understanding of the middleware architectures in embedded systems.
    • Experience with the evaluation and improvement of non-functional system properties, like performance, reliability, robustness, security etc.
    • Fluent English skills are mandatory, German is not required.
