Description

Hybrid:

This role is categorized as hybrid. This means the successful candidate is expected to Warren Technical Center three times per week, at minimum or other frequency dictated by the business.

The Role:

The Software Defined Vehicle (SDV) team supports the definition, design, and development of continuously improving mobility services. SDV is a new vehicle intelligence platform that will underpin all our future innovations across a wide range of technological advancements, including EVs and expanded automated driving. This means that you can potentially put a fingerprint on the vehicles that drive down the road!  Within the Software Defined Vehicle, GM is developing the next generation of embedded platform software to deliver state of the art Infotainment features on the Ultifi platform.

We are building an Infotainment platform software team which is tasked with two critical roles: co-developing, along with the supplier, the software that will run GM’s next generation infotainment system and developing the talent and tools necessary to allow GM to take ownership of the resulting software stack. This team is solely responsible for developing and maintaining GM’s entire infotainment software platform. That's a lot to handle! So, we are looking for senior engineers with a very proven knowledge in developing RTOS and Android software solutions who are interested in applying their experience to delivering high quality software for future automotive Infotainment systems.

What You'll Do:

  • Contribute as system level engineer to build, integrate, and optimize security-related Linux and Android components into an RTOS based infotainment solution for automotive consumer devices

  • Be responsible for the entire life cycle of the security domain, including requirements, system design, development, deployment, and maintenance of the infotainment software

  • Participate in the design of a best-in-class in-vehicle platform for GM infotainment systems

  • Follow our software development process where quality comes first and ensure that the designed solutions conform to architectural requirements such as scalability, maintainability, reliability, extensibility, usability and security

  • Ensure communication “bridge” between various internal and external technical teams to make appropriate system-level design trade-offs, refine system requirements, and identify innovation opportunities

  • Work on new feature development, as well as maintenance of existing features and bug fixes 

  • Collaborate with team members in software development activities using the Scrum/Agile development process

  • Write clear and complete documentation

Additional Description

Your Skills & Abilities (Qualifications):

  • Bachelor's degree in Computer Science, Software Engineering, or related degree

  • Minimum of 5 or more years in Software Development on RTOS/QNX and Android platforms, especially at the system level, including native Android and Java framework

  • Strong experience debugging complex existing code base in C, C++, and Java

  • Experience using scripting languages such as shell and Python

  • In depth experience with Scrum/Agile software development process and SCM tools like Git, Gerrit, OpenGrok

What Will Give You a Competitive Edge (Preferred Qualifications):

  • Master’s degree in software engineering, computer science, computer engineering or electrical engineering
