As a FW Functional Safety Engineer in Advanced Hardware Engineering (AHE), you will be responsible for implementation and verification of FW safety requirements for sensor, computer, and control modules and provide guidance in architecture design. In addition, you will review safety mechanisms on both custom and 3rd party hardware architectures at the module level. You will work closely with systems engineers, design engineers, and test engineers to fully capture functional safety requirements and the capability of our hardware. Your analysis and assessment will be paramount to all other requirements with respect to our hardware
Engage with suppliers and review work products to conduct detailed functional safety analysis
Work with system engineers to develop and document module level functional safety requirements
Work with hardware and FW design engineers to characterize architectures and decompose module level requirements into board level component requirements
Work with test engineers to design tests to qualify failure modes, quantify failure rates, and execute HIL fault injection tests to validate functional safety models
Interface closely with the internal safety systems team at Zoox
Ability to review Hardware-Software Interface documentation and help implement/verify safety mechanisms
Review, approve and provide guidance for architecture proposals and design verification plans
B.S. or higher degree in Aerospace, Automotive, Robotics, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering
3+ years of work experience with implementation or verification of FW drivers for safety critical ECU’s
Strong background in C / C++ programming for embedded Linux or micro-controllers
Experience with low-level interfaces such as I2C, SPI, CAN
Firmware development and verification experience within standards such as: ISO-26262, ARP4754A, ARP4761, DO-178C, DO-254, IEC 61508
Experience using requirements management tools such as Polarion (preferred), DOORS or Jama
