About the role

We are looking for a Triage Engineer who will play a crucial role in ensuring the reliability and performance of automotive products through verification processes. Ideal candidates for this position must have experience with system and sub-system level analysis, verification and validation methodologies, and cross team collaboration across software, testing and project management groups. Different from a traditional Software Quality Assurance (SQA) role, this position uniquely cross-cuts across “testing and operations” functions on the right half of the V-model and “software development and systems / safety requirements” functions on the left half of the V-model. The ideal candidate will have a strong background in automotive engineering and proficiency in simulation tools.

In addition to your testing contributions, by working in our dynamic and customer-focused team culture, you will contribute to and learn from best practices in the automotive industry. We move fast and we focus on excellence, for our products and for our business. If you are hands-on and looking for a place to have a multiplying effect on making automotive systems a reality, Applied Intuition is the place for you!

At Applied Intuition, you will:

  • Synthesize test output data analysis in relation to the systems engineering and safety requirements for the expected AV behavior
  • Triage drive data failures, try to reproduce them in simulation, and properly re-assign to the correct functional owner and development team
  • Partner closely with the software development teams to maintain a rapport for rapid and iterative feedback loop

We're looking for someone who has:

  • Bachelor's or higher degree in Engineering such as Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Systems Engineering, Software Engineering, Robotics highly preferred; or at least four years of equivalent knowledge and work experience
  • 2+ years of professional experience working on safety critical and complex systems such as Robotics, Autonomous Vehicles, Automotive, or Aerospace Technologies
  • Experience with software engineering concepts, including requirements analysis, source control, build processes, design reviews
  • Experience with Linux and scripting languages (E.g: Bash/Shell, Python)
  • Experience using issue tracking and configuration management tools (E.g: Atlassian Confluence, Jira, Bitbucket, Git)
  • Strong troubleshooting, debugging, and analytical and creative problem solving skills

The salary range for this position is $130,000 - $173,000 USD annually. This salary range is an estimate, and the actual salary may vary based on the Company's compensation practices.
