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 or Electrical Engineering, or Computer Science

  • 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

The Integration Engineer is responsible for ensuring product functions are successfully achieved by the integrated subsystems as they interact in the context of the whole vehicle. Responsibilities * Manage and lead integration of initial prototype systems, including bring-up, debug, end engineering test of complex systems involving networked microprocessors and software-controlled electrical and electrical-mechanical devices. * Collaborate with system architects to ensure the high-level architecture proposals address the detailed constraints from his/her functional area. * Fabricate prototype test setups and hardware-in-the-loop testers to integrate new subsystems with simulated and actual vehicle components. * Hold engineering responsible for the essential interfaces/interactions required for successful implementation of his/her functional area. This includes full product lifecycle responsibility for definition, implementation, and validation of these requirements to demonstrate the system is ready for product build phases and, ultimately, production. In some cases the Integration Engineer will be the subject matter expert and will be the chief technical contributor to aspects of system requirements and design. * Work with the cross-discipline development and design engineers throughout the engineering organization to ensure the relevant subsystems are designed with appropriate requirements, interfaces and interactions to achieve specific vehicle functions. * Coordinate software and/or hardware releases so elements of the system are ready for integration. * Collaborate with the design, integration, and 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. * Work jointly with the engineering and validation teams to design tests which will validate the functions, the interfaces and interactions. * Work with manufacturing and with service to ensure the function(s) for which he/she is responsible will be correct in products in the field. This can include development of processes, diagnostic tools and methods, and root-cause diagnosis for product issues. Requirements * BS degree in Computer Science, Electrical or Mechanical Engineering, Mechatronics, or the equivalent in experience and evidence of exceptional ability * Minimum 3 years working on development of complex electro-mechanical products. * Hands-on technical experience debugging complex systems involving networked microprocessors and software-controlled electrical or electromechanical devices. * Experience with C and/or C++ * Experience with Python or other scripting languages * CAN tools such as Vector CANape * Experience safely working with high voltage * Comfortable analyzing data, as well as developing analytical tools to command functions, to monitor responses, to parse data from log files, or to aid in data review. * Creative capacity for developing new ways to integrate complex system better and faster in alignment with the aggressive Tesla approach to revolutionary product development. * Understanding of battery/charger control in an xEV application * Exceptional ability to manage simultaneous activities and challenges. * Development of automated test fixtures Tesla Motors Palo Alto CA
