Senior Functional Safety Developer (offline)

Project Description

GlobalLogic is looking for technology game changers to lead one of our OEM customers' into a fundamental transformation within the automotive industry.

As part of that foundation, we are seeking passionate engineers to execute the porting of application software features from legacy controllers to the next generation vehicle controller. These software features will cover all major domains like autonomous driving, body, powertrain and infotainment. Once the features are ported you will be responsible for all future development and innovation related to these features. You will be able to shape the future of mobility.

Senior Senior Functional Safety Developer will be involved in the development of the future of vehicle features, including automated driving systems and driver assistance systems and enablers, to which ISO 26262 and ISO 21448 is applied in a manner consistent with the Functional Safety and SOTIF life cycles as well as in accordance with the quality, performance and timing requirements as defined by the Stellantis Functional Safety and SOTIF Processes. The Senior Functional Safety Developer will be responsible for leading Functional Safety analyses, SOTIF analyses and related tasks for Stellantis automated driving and driver assistance advanced development projects. This includes performing functional HARAs to define the required Safety Goals and Automotive Safety Integrity Level (ASIL) applied to vehicle, system, hardware and software designs through safety concepts. You will identify potential safety impacts of the sensor and AD algorithm designs while developing safety requirements consistent with the intent of ISO26262 and ISO21448. The engineer will be the keystone of a strong project team that includes system and network engineering, software integration, and software development teams. The candidate must have the desire to develop and learn new processes and technologies. The ideal candidate will possess an interest in state-of-the-art automated driving compute platforms and vehicle architectures.
