General Role Overview
At the heart of Fisker's visionary product lies a state-of-the-art powertrain – and you can play a central role in its delivery.
The Powertrain Software team that you will be a part of will be responsible for the supervisory controller development including functional safety as well as benchmarking and characterization of competitor vehicles, dynamic modeling of Fisker products, powertrain performance test planning and execution.
The Senior Engineer, Powertrain Software Architecture is expected to analyze the system function requirements, develop the powertrain control software requirements, define software functional and performance criteria, design the software architecture including the elements, interface, and dynamic behavior to meet the software functional and performance criteria.
Fisker is a fast-moving technologically focused startup, and in this context, you will need considerable flexibility and adaptability to deal with the rapidly developing requirements at the leading edge of EV powertrain implementation.
Duties and Responsibilities
Analyze the powertrain system function requirements and define the software functions, interface, and performance targets.
Lead the software architecture design, including the high-level state machine for power-up / shut-down and power mode management and control functions.
Design key control flows, tasks scheduling and sequencing, working with platform software (BSW) to implement the design and develop testing procedures for verification to ensure the dynamic behavior and efficiency of the software.
Lead the development of software function validation and testing plan.
Develop the traceability of the software requirements to system function requirements and software components.
Develop software and system technical specifications.
Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Software Engineering, Computer Engineering, or a related technical field. Master of Science is preferred.
