Job Overview
As a SOTIF Engineer, you will lead and be an active participant in developing the functional safety concept, including all aspects of feature decomposition and analysis.
The focus is safety of the intended function analysis of autonomous driving systems in the advanced development project phase to improve safety during design and build the safety case and verification plan for how the system will be assessed during later project phases

Responsibilities
  • Contribute to ADAS and Self-Driving feature requirements and provide functional safety guidance on feature definition, design, verification and validation measures.
  • You will utilize various analysis techniques (e.g. HARA, FMEA, STPA) to identify functional insufficiencies at different system levels, including sensing and decision algorithms
  • Derive safety hazards that would contribute to ADAS SOTIF events
  • Develop safety goals/requirements associated with identified ADAS-SOTIF related events
  • Help drive system architecture and controls actions to mitigate SOTIF risk
  • Derive validation and verification test scenarios to demonstrate robustness of ADAS system to SOTIF
  • Data and machine learning algorithm analysis as per SOTIF process Qualifications
  • The SOTIF engineer shall be very familiar with ISO 21448 and be part of working group to develop and modify the SOTIF process to adapt to and apply to the integrated autonomous driving system solutions.
  • The SOTIF engineer shall be responsible to cooperate with SW, HW and SYS engineers to develop the entire project SOTIF safety case for various autonomous driving and ADAS features, including system and component level hazard analysis, use cases, ODD conditions, and SOTIF safety requirements
  • Item description decomposition to identify vehicle level actions required to perform the intended function.
  • ODD decomposition to identify road, weather, and other external disturbances.
  • Manage safety requirements traceability and work with design, implementation, performance, validation and service team members to validate SOTIF requirements
  • Be part of team to develop and modify the SOTIF safety process
  • Lead or support advanced system or component of new feature or new technology from the SOTIF safety perspective


Minimum Qualifications:
  • Degree education in Electrical/Electronic or Mechanical (or similar) Engineering
  • Over 5 years of experience within the automotive industry, ideally OEM or Tier 1 working within systems engineering in relation to ADAS features with working knowledge of ISO 26262
  • Background and experience in safety related engineering (active safety, functional safety)
  • 2+ years of experience in functional safety or SOTIF for automotive, 5+ preferred


Preferred Qualifications:
  • Experience in defining the SOTIF process for ADAS features
  • Understanding of emerging standards such as UL 4600
  • Strong system engineering background
  • Good interpersonal and communication skills with a high level of integrity
  • Experience working within a cross-functional team
  • Basic knowledge of ISO 26262
  • Expert knowledge of ISO 21448
  • Proven track on development and implementation of SOTIF safety concepts
  • Lead with confidence - thought leaders who empower those around them
  • Proven track on safety analysis methods (FTA, FMEA, STPA)
  • Preferably proven track on technical leadership
  • Feature expert on autonomous L0-L3 driving such as LKA, AEB, ACC, LCC
  • Application specific component expert such as RADARS, Camera, Driver Monitor, or Compute Platform
  • Knowledge and experience in Object Sensing / Detection and Path Prediction
  • Knowledge and experience in Map and Localization
  • Knowledge and experience in Vehicle Dynamics for Autonomous Vehicles
  • Expert on system and vehicle simulations


Physical Requirements
  • Frequently transports between offices, buildings, and campuses up to ½ mile.
  • Frequently transports and installs equipment up to 5 lbs.
  • Performs required tasks at various heights (e.g., standing or sitting).
  • Monitors and utilizes computers and test equipment for more than 6 hours a day.
  • Continuous communication which includes the comprehension of information with colleagues, customers, and vendors both in person and remotely.
