Due to the huge demand for current models and substantial investment in future projects there is a requirement for more resources across the business in engineering & manufacturing on a contract basis.

The Role:
This role is for an experienced and highly motivated software engineer with responsibility for the development, delivery and validation of model based embedded software. This role relates specifically to the development of diagnostics, networks functionality and common components, and will be working in a team developing future ADAS features.

Tasks Include:
Development of model based software using Simulink / Stateflow / Targetlink including updates, additions of new features, bug fixes, and architecture improvements.
Work with the software architect and software and controls engineers to define the diagnostic and fault handling strategy and associated architecture.
Code productionisation, validation and industrialisation, including development and execution of MIL / SIL and HIL tests.
Working with a team of system and controls engineers, including an offshore team, to manage timely delivery of software according to programme timing and local delivery milestones, Issue investigation and resolution.

1. Experienced in control system and software development, integration and release using Mathworks toolchain (Matlab / Simulink / Stateflow) for real time embedded applications.
2. Embedded networking and diagnostics standards (e.g. Flexray, CAN, ISO14229 / UDS), as well as fault detection and fault handling strategies.
3.Software architecture definition including AutoSAR.

Nb. Occasional travel to other sites may be required including overseas. (Safety footwear will be required in workshop / manufacturing areas).
