Aurora hires talented people with diverse backgrounds who are ready to help build a transportation ecosystem that will make our roads safer, get crucial goods where they need to go, and make mobility more efficient and accessible for all. The Systems Engineering team at Aurora is seeking a candidate with expertise in software architecture, engineering, and integration of safety- and mission- critical software systems.

Aurora's Systems Engineers work closely with engineering design teams to develop sound and implementable design concepts and requirements. Collaboration and teamwork are essential for bringing various stakeholders together, and guide implementation decisions across different disciplines.

In this role, you will

  • Define the interfaces across both autonomy and vehicle systems by:
  • Specifying data flow, flow control, timing, memory usage, and message contents to ensure synchronization, correctness, and completeness
  • Collaboratively negotiating new interface contracts between various parts of the software and hardware architectures in partnership with software and hardware teams
  • Systematically documenting the designed interactions of adjacent modules
  • Generating integration requirements
  • Establish an integration plan and directly support integration activities to:
  • Incrementally assure performance of software and hardware interfaces as modules are combined
  • Identify issues that are not easily discoverable when modules are viewed in isolation or are obfuscated at the system level
  • Communicate and help resolve interface errors to mitigate risks before the release of the final build
  • Participate in cross-functional planning for future autonomy and vehicle systems to preemptively identify gaps and/or excesses in expected capabilities or performance

Required Qualifications

  • Bachelor's degree in Systems Engineering, or a related specialized area or field (Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering) and a minimum of 8 years of relevant experience, or a Master's degree and a minimum of 5 years of relevant experience.
  • Minimum 4 years of experience with software architecture, engineering, and integration in safety- or mission- critical systems
  • Experience writing testable requirements
  • Strong organizational and communication skills; ability to effectively coordinate efforts and requirements across a large number of stakeholders across the organization

Desirable Qualifications

  • Proficiency in JAMA for requirements management
  • Experience with Linux kernel and real-time operating systems
  • Experience with robotics middleware and distributed messaging frameworks such as ZeroMQ, LCM, and/or gRPC
  • Knowledge of both high and low-level communication protocols, from I2C and SPI to CAN and TCP/IP Protocols
  • Proficiency in C++ and Python
  • Program management experience
