System Integration Engineer

Foster City, CA
Vehicle Development – Vehicle Integration Engineering /
Full-time /
We are inventors, builders, and doers, passionate and purposeful in the work we do. We have a once-in-a-century opportunity to reinvent personal transportation—and we need your help. As a System Integration Engineer, you will have the opportunity to lead the integration of complex electrical systems into autonomous driving robots. In this role, you will be responsible for leading system design and integration by synthesizing vehicle product requirements into functional system requirements and guaranteeing proper integration across the multiple body controllers and their interfaces. You’ll be part of a passionate team dedicated to making cities safer, smarter, and more sustainable. 

Together with the team, you will work to develop, validate, and continuously improve the robot’s electrical architecture to production maturity. We are looking for an engineer excited to engage cross-functional teams while holding yourself, teammates, and the larger organization accountable for meeting requirements and timelines. If you consider yourself an expert on a handful of vehicle systems, enabling you to deep dive into functional integration topics that bring hardware to life, we would like to hear from you!

In this role, you will:

    • Develop system design and integration compatibility according to the product requirements and imperatives such as cost, mass, time latency, functional safety, and cybersecurity among others.
    • Support new features or implement improvements required based on vehicle development and validation activities.
    • Collaborate across mechanical, electrical, firmware development, and firmware validation teams to determine the integration actions, guarantee proper system-level definition, and engage the design and development teams to ensure the relevant subsystems are designed to fulfill system requirements, interfaces, and interactions to achieve specific vehicle functions.
    • Create novel networking interfaces for next-generation connected vehicle applications.
    • Create System FMEAs, develop diagnostics, and fault reactions to ensure safe vehicle operation.
    • Lead the triage of issues, including log reviews, code reviews, and HW investigation.


    • BS or higher in electrical/electronics/systems/mechanical engineering or related field.
    • 7+ years of experience in automotive systems engineering, with 3+ years of experience in developing automotive system design, using models-based system principles, for the following domains: Body Control (closures, safety, comfort, lighting, passive entry).
    • Experience in electrical systems and subsystems requirements creation, and proficiency of requirements management software ( IBM DOOrs, Siemens Polarion, or similar).
    • Experience diagnosing CAN, LIN, or Ethernet network issues.
    • Experience in MATLAB, Python, C++ or equivalent tools for modeling and analysis

Bonus Qualifications

    • Experience with Vector Tools ( CANalyzer/CANOE/ Prevention).
    • Experience with Functional Safety for Road Vehicles (ISO 26262).
    • Experience in failure analysis, fault trees or hazard and risk analysis.
    • Experience in Diagnostics specification (ISO 14229 series).
