7108 - Transmission Controls Engineer - Intermediate

The company is developing the next generation advanced transmissions controls to meet the demands of the new products and customers. Our team is looking for a strong Drive Strategy/Shift Scheduling Algorithm Designer to create next generation controls for current and future transmission products. This opportunity will focus on both core and advanced Drive Strategy algorithm development to be designed in an agile development cycle. We are looking for Drive Strategy/ Shift Scheduling Algorithm Engineers with strong software/calibration backgrounds or Controls Systems Engineers that can quickly understand transmission drive strategy concepts.

The Drive Strategy/ Shift Scheduling Algorithm Engineer will be responsible for following agile development methods to support the design, development, implementation and testing of various drive strategy controls specifically related to shift scheduling, tcc release/lock-up, but may also include line pressure control, shift-by-wire, signal integrity and management, shift lever analysis and implementation. This role also has the possibility to support product reviews on current/advanced transmission products to ensure controls are implemented to meet controllability, robustness, and durability requirements as well as propose/design algorithm changes as needed.

The company needs a Drive Strategy/Shift Scheduling Algorithm Developer to design/develop transmission controls SW for current and future product.



Design and develop transmission control algorithms and validate these changes for production implementation

Create requirements for implementing these algorithms into transmission software

Perform verification and validation of these algorithms using SIL/HIL and in vehicle.

Establish and execute design verification plans for control logic development

Conduct design failure mode effects analysis for control logic changes

Support transmission hardware improvements, cost reduction efforts through control logic development and other quality initiatives

Support transmission calibration efforts by contributing to calibration guide and base calibration development

Support calibration verification and release transmission calibrations for production

Basic Qualifications:

Bachelor of Science in Computer, Electrical, or Mechanical Engineering

Minimum 3-5 year of engineering experience, however, an advanced degree and/or academic research in a related field may count towards experience requirement

Basic understanding of powertrain functions (transmission, engines, driveline)

Good overall knowledge of transmission control systems related to drive strategy, shift scheduling, shift-by-wire, signal filtering and shift lever analysis

Experience in standard development tools, modeling/simulation/development/testing/validation

Experience in standard productivity tools (MS Office Suite)

Outstanding interpersonal and problem solving skills

Self-starter who is able to work cross-functionally with other organizations

Highly motivated individual with a track record of "getting things done"

Basic knowledge in micro-controller hardware and embedded software

Must be able to work with multiple disciplines (mechanical, electrical and controls)

Preferred Qualifications:

Advanced/Master degree in Engineering

Deep understanding of powertrain functions and Controls Algorithms focused on conventional combustion engines interfaces with transmissions

Minimum of 5-10 years of powertrain development experience

Subject matter expertise in transmission controls or specialist in one or more of the following areas:

o Shift Scheduling

o TCC Release/Lock-Up

Knowledge of "C" programming language utilized in embedded code as well as MATLAB/SimuLink, Amesim, Borland/MSDN, Lauterbach

Working experience with automotive development/calibration tools (ETAS, INCA, CDA, Vector, DOORS)
