Hybrid: This means the successful candidate is expected to report to their primary location (Milford, MI) three times per week, at minimum, or other frequency dictated by the business.

The Role:

Vehicle Mechatronic Embedded Controls (VMEC) is a team that is comprised of inclusive and diverse Agile teams, where everyone has a voice in the conversation.   VMEC is a production engineering group that is responsible for the definition, design, and development of all embedded controls that impact all vehicle motion.  Suspension Controls is part of an exciting new area of in-house controls and software development platform within VMEC.  This team is focused on developing all new Supervisory Controls and Diagnostics for Height Control systems used in upcoming vehicle products that will be on the forefront of the Software Defined Vehicle experience.

The VMEC Chassis and Suspension Controls Team is seeking creative, highly motivated, agile problem solvers who have a passion and expertise in embedded controls.  The selected candidate will collaborate across the Suspension Agile Release Train (ART) to define, design, implement, and test height control and diagnostic algorithms which will be deployed to a wide variety of GM’s latest vehicle products.  The selected candidate will also be able to influence the direction of the ART and develop/coach junior engineers in the team.

What You’ll do:

  • Lead development of controls designs utilizing Lean-Agile principles
  • Develop supervisory controls and diagnostics for all new GM in-house developed height controls and diagnostics using standard work, design principles & best practices
  • Work closely and collaborate with Suspension calibration teams to design robust algorithms that will meet system requirements.
  • Conduct analysis on design changes utilizing tools (Matlab/Simulink, INCA/MDA, GMSIM, other)
  • Lead the development and review of subsystem DFMEA/AFMEA and analyze failure modes to enable robust algorithm design
  • Define system behavior under fault conditions and incorporate learnings into production algorithms
  • Ensure algorithm design adheres to all safety and government requirements & regulations
  • Lead technical workgroups to decompose the requirements into controls design by working with Systems Engineers, System Architects or Technical Specialists to understand vehicle, sub-system, and behavioral requirements.
  • Support the Scrum Manager with ART Feature decomposition into individual work items and participate in the User Story elaboration.  Contribute to ensuring that the definition of done and acceptance criteria are well defined.  
  • Communicate and work with the Scrum to ensure the design is comprehended and the team is aligned with the design intent
  • Support or assist the Scrum team as required in implementing cohesive, efficient, testable and sustainably maintainable software components
  • Provide information as required to Calibration procedures and Behavior Test Specifications (BTS)
  • Verify Functional Performance of controls designs
  • Work with Scrum team to support development of feature or component BTS
  • Support the team with robustness and BTS testing as required on either the SIL, HIL or Vehicle
  • Develop and execute test cases at the unit, POD, and Solution-in-Isolation levels of architecture.
  • Review test results & incorporate necessary modifications into controls design
  • Host algorithm design reviews and ensure performance metrics are achieved based on test data
  • Verify acceptance criteria are met through test & data analysis
  • Provide feedback to hardware teams of issues identified during design & data analysis to ensure robustness
  • Lead issue resolution initiatives by working closely with peers to investigate and resolve issues found, incorporate lessons learned into the design
  • Document lessons learned and Best Practices for controls design implementation
  • Produce innovative methods to make our work more efficient
  • Utilize Problem Resolution Tracking System (PRTS)
  • Document Intellectual Property
  • Participate in scrum and ART ceremonies
