Our team is responsible for Smart Diagnostics, Rivian's Diagnostic Engine that drives in-vehicle and remote diagnostics via manual, no-code, and ML-driven root cause analysis. We are developing the most advanced integrated diagnostic system in the world, capable of proactively monitoring, analyzing, and learning from our fleets throughout their lifecycle.

Responsibilities :

  • Define and decompose the strategy and behavioral logic that will control power to all devices in the vehicle—providing a seamless interactive experience for the customer.
  • Understand and decompose high-level attributes into system and subsystem- level requirements, working closely with firmware developers on implementation strategy.
  • Provide technical guidance to make critical engineering decisions related to vehicle power-moving's architecture and system design.

  • Develop feature design implementations and rollout plans to support the product roadmap and timelines.
  • Work closely with firmware developers and engineers and manufacturing and service engineers to define feature metrics and drive power mode management diagnostic improvements.
  • Coordinate cross-functional design reviews to ensure a robust design and test strategy to meet program milestones.
  • Qualifications :

  • Bachelor of Science in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Software Engineering, or related field.
  • 5+ years of experience working on embedded systems, focusing on power management and startup/shutdown procedures.
  • Strong organizational skills can keep all stakeholders informed and engaged throughout the project life cycle.
  • Strong understanding of the trade-offs required to evaluate different design options properly.
  • Software development experience. Able to code, familiar with Git, Jira, and software development lifecycle.
  • Ability to decompose significant concepts into realizable deliverables and work with team members to distribute tasks and execute individual responsibilities with minimal guidance.
  • Ability to apply creative and critical thinking to deliver exceptional results.
  • Good communication, able to convey both detailed explanations and high- level status updates and know when each is appropriate.
