Work Arrangement:

Hybrid: The position does not require an employee to be onsite full-time to perform most effectively. The employee's role enables them to work at a GM facility, or off-site as frequently as needed or desired.

The Role:

General Motors is transforming the future of mobility – and the Canadian Technical Centre (CTC) is at the forefront of that transformation. We are a diverse team of agile and innovative thought leaders who are passionate about developing key technologies and products that will help achieve GM’s vision of a world with Zero Crashes, Zero Emissions and Zero Congestion. ​

CTC has a proven track record of taking technologies from concept to production in both automotive and non-automotive areas. Our success is propelled by our talented people and our deep technical knowledge in domains like infotainment software, diagnostics, data analytics, AI, mechatronic controls, and cold weather development. ​If you want to work with an inclusive and collaborative team that’s striving to change the world for the better, we invite you to join us.

As an Embedded Controls Design Co-Op, you will be applying your knowledge and skill sets in the development and execution of embedded controls algorithm, and software for upcoming generation of Electric and Autonomous Vehicles! This position involves a combination of embedded software design work, modeling, simulation of models and vehicles, Software-in-Loop testing, data collection from benches and vehicles, and tools development. You will be learning new knowledge and skills that would benefit your career development and future opportunities!

Key Responsibilities:

  • Design, develop, and improve controls and diagnostic algorithms for safety related components, sub-systems, and smart devices for Brake-by-Wire and other embedded platforms

  • Work closely with multi-disciplined engineering teams to understand functional requirements, and implement appropriate diagnostic and control solutions

  • Use a model-based software development approach that utilizes both graphical and traditional software development methods

  • Perform Integration & Verification Testing of Integrated Software

  • Support and execute test plans, and procedures for simulating controls and diagnostics

  • Test and debug software using models, controller hardware, and vehicles to perform SIL/HIL/Integration testing

  • Participate in collaboration and innovation to develop and improve better controls to achieve GM’s zero crashes, zero emissions, zero congestion vision
