Our Vehicle Networking and Information (VNI) business area develops modules and end-to-end systems for connected mobility.
In a modern car, telematics, in a broad sense, is any integrated use of telecommunications. All the information related to the user's car (vehicle speed, position, number of passengers, number of control units, Vehicle Identification Number, vehicle error messages etc.
is sent, received and stored by the telecommunication services that are developed inside the Telematics Control Unit (TCU).
Be part of our development team with the scope of designing the overall system architecture of our TCUs.
You would also have a major contribution in the definition of requirements for our telematics products, incorporating the latest technologies (ex : 5G, V2x, Automotive ethernet, Volte calls) and attractive features like : Car sharing, Over the air update, Remote diagnostics, eCall, Stolen vehicle tracking, Automated valet parking.
As a system architect, you will be involved in various and challenging activities with interactions across the product lifecycle such as quotations, concept design validation with the customer, as well as feature refinement workshops with our internal development teams.
Do you want to be part of our team? These should spark your interest :
Analyze the system requirements and regional legal requirements.
Define the system architecture strategy in order to fulfill system requirements, functional safety, security and target costs.
Design the system architecture in order to be aligned with the existing generic architectures (HW / SW platform)
Define internal and external interfaces for each system element.
Identify the critical use-cases for the system architecture.
Decompose the system into sub-systems (platform, modules, components), all the while establishing a bilateral traceability between system requirements and system architectural design.
Define the management rules for the hardware resources used by sub-systems (CPU, RAM, Flash memory).
Create strategies to achieve performance related requirements (Startup, thermal, data throughput), as well as stability and robustness related ones.
Support the problem resolution process with in-depth analysis and debugging for root cause identification.
Analyze and improve the robustness of the system architecture by performing System FMEA (Failure mode and effect analysis) on critical areas.
Train, coach and moderate the engineering project team members on technical matters. Qualifications You can be a perfect match to our team if you :
Graduated in a relevant field (e.g. Electronics, Telecommunications, Computer science, Automatics, Mechatronics, Electrical Engineering, Medical Bioengineering);
