VIEW JOBS 10/18/2020 12:00:00 AM 2021-01-16T00:00 The Role Tesla's Systems Integration Team is seeking an Integration Engineer who will be responsible for ensuring firmware support for new vehicle features and new hardware are designed, implemented and tested to achieve Tesla's standards for safety and customer experience. The Integration Engineer is expected to move projects along at an aggressive pace - keeping track of program milestones and deliverables and pulling together the contributions of many teams into a cohesive final product. The Integration Engineer is also expected to get their hands dirty in the details of their sub-systems - digging through source code, root causing issues and proposing solutions to complex problems, as well as testing prototype firmware implementations in-vehicle. The Integration Engineer is at the center of the iterative firmware development process and has a broad range of responsibilities. Responsibilities * Work with the design and development engineers throughout 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 sub-system and component level requirements, and drive the implementation, testing and release of these features against Tesla's firmware release schedule * Utilize critical analysis of potential failure modes and effects to influence these requirements * Develop overall validation strategy for these features and work with validation teams to ensure automated 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 in firmware - both in manufacturing and for customer use - so that they can be seamlessly introduced to our vehicle platforms * Develop and execute firmware integration test plans on new hardware components and firmware features to rapidly retire risk from new designs and provide feedback to the development teams to accelerate our aggressive development cycles * Dig into data and source code to identify and debug issues at the system level and propose robust solutions * Work with manufacturing and with service to ensure the function(s) are rolled out and functioning properly. This can include development of processes, diagnostic tools and methods, and root-cause diagnosis for product issues * Collaborate with validation teams to design tests which will validate the functions, interfaces, and interactions of the system. Identify areas of concern, and work with teams to rectify any bugs * Develop prototype test setups to integrate new subsystems with simulated and actual vehicle components * Lead and manage integration of initial prototype systems including bring-up, debug, and engineering test of alpha- and beta-phase prototype vehicles Requirements * BS degree in Mechatronics, Mechanical, Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, or proof of exceptional skills in related fields. * Minimum 3 years working on development of complex electro-mechanical projects * Exceptional ability to keep multiple projects moving forwards in parallel * Hands-on technical experience debugging complex systems involving networked microprocessors and software-controlled electrical or electromechanical devices * Proven ability to use programming to solve challenging problems and increase own/team's efficiency through automation * Experience with C and Python are preferred * Ability to fluently interpret system data to gain a full understanding of logged events * Thorough understanding of mechanics fundamentals - and ability to apply them to automotive concepts * Understanding of low voltage and high voltage circuits and how to debug them * Experience with CAN and Vector CAN tools is a plus * Experience with Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA) and Hazard Analysis and Risk Assessment (HARA) is a plus Tesla Motors Palo Alto CA
