Zoox is building a revolutionary industry-leading autonomous vehicle. One of the greatest challenges of this new vehicle is the validation of robot safety. The SDMA team is looking for creative software engineers with a passion to deliver safe autonomous vehicles to the road. To achieve this, the HIL Test Applications Engineer will develop tests at the module, sub-system, and full system level. You will be responsible for designing, implementing, and tracking progress of validation tests. In this role, you will work with perception, software, hardware and safety engineers to increase the completeness and fidelity of our integration testsuites. This will require a high-level understanding of the overall system design and a detailed understanding of hardware and software interactions. 

We are looking for people who are passionate about building quality, robust, optimized, and reusable software infrastructure. The ideal candidate has proven experience testing complex embedded systems in a team environment focused on firmware behaviors. Your efforts will have a direct impact on the safety of our cutting edge autonomous driving system.

Responsibilities

  • Plan, write, and execute automated tests on HIL benches to verify functional safety requirements and validate fault handling capabilities
  • Develop error-injection and reporting tools for the Hardware-In-the-Loop infrastructure 
  • Maintain traceability between requirements, test cases, and results
  • Collaborate with cross-functional teams to ensure test implementation meets requirements and desired functionality 
  • Troubleshoot and debug issues found during testing. Perform test data analysis and trace failures to correct subsystems and work with cross-functional development teams to identify the root cause and solve them.
  • Develop test pipeline for sensor-degradation perception validation

Qualifications

  • Python and C++ experience in large code bases
  • Linux operating system fundamentals and system architecture knowledge
  • Ability to understand complex hardware/software systems and interactions
  • Ability to collaborate cross-functionally to achieve project goals and contribute to a positive problem-solving environment

Bonus Qualifications

  • Experience with integrated software/hardware verification and validation
  • Systems engineering experience certifying safety critical software across full development cycle
  • Safety critical software validation experience within standards such as: ISO-26262, ISO-21448, ARP4754A, ARP4761 (or other regulated fields)
  • Knowledgeable in physics of camera, radar, or lidar systems
  • Knowledge of machine learning
