Electrical Integration Engineer

Foster City, CA
Vehicle Development – Vehicle Integration Engineering
Full-time
As part of the EE Systems Integration team, we will collectively be responsible for assuring that electrical, electronic, and mechatronic systems are defined, specified, manufactured and integrated into systems and vehicles with a maximum of reliability and performance.  We foster communication amongst teams and work cross-functionally to deliver robust electrical and electronic systems to Zoox. Our team is collaborative, open and always interested in learning something new. You’ll be part of a passionate team dedicated to making cities safer, smarter and more sustainable. 

As EE Systems Integration Engineer, you will work with a team at the cutting edge of integrating our complex electrical systems into autonomous driving machines.  You will be responsible for synthesizing vehicle product requirements into a real low voltage architecture and for developing, validating and nurturing that architecture into production.   You will do this by engaging cross-functional teams and holding yourself, teammates and the larger organization accountable for meeting requirements. We are a small team, and you will also be responsible as an expert on a handful of systems on the vehicle, enabling you to deep dive into functional integration topics that bring hardware to life.

Responsibilities

    • Develop novel architectures and communications interfaces to solve complex HMI or EE systems interactions
    • Create novel networking interfaces for next-generation connected vehicle applications
    • Engage the design and development engineers across the engineering organization to ensure the relevant subsystems are designed with appropriate requirements, interfaces and interactions to achieve specific vehicle functions.
    • Break down new, high ­level feature requests into sub­system and component level requirements, and drive the implementation, testing and release of these features against Zoox firmware release plan
    • Review potential failure modes and effects to influence these requirements
    • Develop overall validation strategy for these features and work with validation teams to ensure test coverage is implemented for future firmware releases
    • Work cross­-functionally across mechanical, electrical, system architecture, firmware development and firmware validation teams to understand new component ­level hardware changes which are being developed and how to support them for production and field deployment
    • Develop and execute firmware/hardware integration test plans on new hardware components and firmware features to rapidly retire risk from new designsDig into data and source code to identify and debug issues at the system level and propose robust solutions
    • Conduct initial system bring-up and perform integration tests at the vehicle level to validate design assumptions
    • Develop early prototypes and test benches to de-risk new technologies

Qualifications

    • BS or higher in electrical/electronics engineering, or equivalent
    • 2-5 years of experience in systems design, systems architecture, systems integration or related field
    • Experience debugging complex electrical, electronic and software controlled systems
    • Experience diagnosing CAN, LIN or Ethernet network issues
    • Experience in MATLAB, Python, C++ or equivalent tools for modeling and analysis
    • Able to communicate complex technical issues in simple, definitive and accurate terms

Bonus Qualifications

    • Experience with Vector tools
    • Experience in failure analysis, fault trees or hazard and risk analysis
