The automotive industry is in the midst of a once in a generational revolution as it accelerates toward autonomous driving, connectivity and electrification. Join our team to design, develop and shape the future of our electrical and electronic systems; that'll be your goal as you apply your technical expertise to help develop robust software in our vehicles. This includes everything from autonomous vehicles and advanced control systems to class-leading infotainment, cloud-connected features and integration of consumer electronic technologies, not to mention the opportunity to drive advanced prototype vehicles.

Key Accountabilities and Responsibilities

  • Product Impact & Scope of Innovation: Responsible for development of feature software for new ECUs, this code can range from vehicle level across multiple ECU's to single ECU level depending on product and systems.
