The Role:
We are looking for a highly motivated individual to accelerate our vehicle-level testing for autonomous vehicles. The Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) Test Engineer will help drive Tesla’s Autopilot program in two ways: supporting the development team with vehicle-level tuning and testing, and ensuring regulatory compliance of the vehicle in every market. The role requires someone highly organized and confident in their ability to manage projects along a very fluid schedule. This full-time role requires the flexibility of traveling (up to 50%) to various domestic and international destinations as necessary, to test vehicles on public roads, test tracks and Proving Grounds.
Responsibilities:
  • Design, develop and validate Tesla test procedures in the areas of Advanced Driver.
  • Assistance Systems and Vehicle Dynamics (Pedestrian Detection, Automatic Emergency Braking, and Lane Departure Avoidance, for example).
  • Work with internal engineering teams and external governing agencies to develop and validate vehicle performance.
  • Lead on & off-site test trips, including management and support of technicians in test vehicle setup and test execution.
  • Work with external test labs and proving grounds to direct testing activities.
  • Mentor less-experienced engineers to develop their engineering skills and knowledge of ADAS and other vehicle features.
  • Analyze data collected during testing to determine if the vehicle meets federal and internal requirements, and make recommendations to the internal design teams based on findings.
  • Generate test reports to document results of testing and to communicate issues found.
  • Design, fabricate, and modify test equipment and data acquisition systems to meet internal needs.
Requirements:
  • Bachelor’s Degree in Mechanical Engineering or Electrical Engineering or equivalent higher education required.
  • Several years of vehicle testing experience specifically related to Vehicle Dynamics or Autonomous Vehicles.
  • Proficiency in C/C++, MATLAB or Python required.
  • Excellent attention to detail and highly observational.
  • Excellent written and spoken English.
  • Must be comfortable driving prototype vehicles at (or over) their limits on closed courses.
  • Ability to multi-task, prioritize and work in an extremely fast-paced environment.
