Sensor Integration Engineer(m/w/d) - Gigafactory Berlin - Brandenburg


April 14, 2021

The Role
Tesla is seeking a sensor integration engineer. This engineer is responsible for ensuring sensor performance is successfully achieved when integrated with other subsystems in the vehicle
  • Responsible for overall functional and performance readiness of the sensing system and its features at any point in the product life cycle
  • Serve as the owner of a given sensing system and central point-of-contact for any issues during development or deployment
  • Understand and highlight impacts of electrical, software, or process changes
  • Understand and debug hardware and software interactions during design, launch, and deployment
  • Understand system performance constraints and its capability to support post-production features
  • Manage priorities and support a host of projects simultaneously
  • Drive the design and execution of sensing subsystems
  • Distill sensor product requirements into constraints and actionable engineering systems design discussions
  • Host cross-functional sensor design discussions with electrical, software, manufacturing, mechanical design, and service teams
  • Translate sensor design discussions into design documents in the form of system block diagrams, functional requirements, and performance requirements
  • Define sensor hardware and software interfaces
  • Support early sensor prototype development to de-risk new technologies
  • Define an integration test plan for sensing hardware products or software features with integration milestones that focus on de-risking product or feature deployment and align with the program timeline
  • Execute initial sensor bring-up and integration testing at the vehicle level to validate system design assumptions
  • Perform change impact analysis for change requests by summarizing impacted devices, interfaces, and processes in the hardware and software domain
  • Ensure sensing system is characterized across a host of environments
  • Support system validation teams in developing electrical and software test plans
  • Use field data to improve design and performance of the sensor

  • A study in Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, Systems Engineering, or related field
  • Good experience in systems design, systems architecture, systems integration, or related field
  • Hands-on technical experience debugging complex subsystems involving network microprocessors and software-controlled electrical or electromechanical devices
  • Strong electrical and embedded systems fundamentals
  • Solid written and verbal communication skills
  • Proficient in data visualization and statistical analysis
  • Sophisticated in analyzing data as well as developing analytical tools
  • Experience in MATLAB, Python, C/C++ or equivalent tools for modeling and analysis
  • Good understanding of hardware and software development process

  • Experience with sensor design & characterization
  • Experience with CAN tools such as Vector CANape
  • Experience with version control tools such as Git, SVN or equivalents
  • Experience in failure analysis, HARAs, and fault trees
  • Experience with high volume manufacturing
  • Experience with embedded systems
  • Familiarity with JIRA or similar task/feature tracking systems
