Job Description

Ford EVDD is responsible for developing the key technologies and capabilities - such as EV platforms, batteries, e-motors, inverters, charging and recycling - to create ground-up breakthrough electric vehicles. Join a team of knowledgeable and passionate engineers striving to build robust and safety- rated embedded systems to solve the most relevant problems in vehicle electrification. Being on the Ford EVDD team means building the future as Ford's center of innovation and growth through electric and connected vehicles and services.

Our team develops firmware and controls for a diverse array from thermal management of the vehicle to body control systems. As part of the embedded software team, you will be responsible for the user-facing critical features like power management of the ECU and ensure that the low-level actuators are controlled adequately to meet vehicle attributes and performance targets. In this role, you will be collaborating with many cross-functional teams from electrical architecture, system integration, and other platform software engineers for firmware development through all stages of the program development.


What You'll do

  • Lead the design and implementation of the firmware running on a distributed embedded system with multiple microcontrollers with a focus on optimizing power/energy consumption and safety.
  • Specification, design, implementation, and testing of both bare metal and RTOS low-level software for thermal and body electronics applications.
  • Design and specify interfaces between application software and firmware.
  • Develop multicore, timing-critical software architectures.
  • Work with/resolve ambiguity in requirements/specifications/designs.
  • Create elegant, efficient real-time software components and interfaces.
  • Develop software component testing methodologies and implementations to ensure maturity/stability/release readiness.
  • Work with hardware and debuggers at a bench and HIL level to verify software operation.
  • Design ISO26262-compliant software.
  • Define system-level power requirements and implement low-power modes of operation for each of the microcontrollers.
  • Profile power consumption and identify opportunities for optimization on the submodule as well as system level.
  • Early phases of firmware development will focus on hardware validation, labcar testing, and setting up the automation framework for a unit. SIL and HIL testing.
  • Develop comprehensive test plans and perform thorough testing to validate firmware functionality, stability, and performance under various conditions, including low power modes.
  • What you will bring

  • Hands-on hardware bring-up, system debugging, and code optimization.
  • Ability to collaborate and communicate complex technical concepts.
  • Ability to deliver high-quality C code in a real-time embedded environment.
  • Proficiency in a variety of embedded architectures, from bare metal to RTOS implementations, as well as a deep understanding of modern multi-core 32-bit embedded controller peripherals and architecture.
  • Understanding of CI/CD pipeline and software build infrastructure.
  • Strong Python coding skills to support test automation.
  • Qualifications

    Minimum requirements:

  • Bachelor's degree in electrical engineering, Computer Science, Computer Engineering, experience with evidence of exceptional ability, or equivalent.
  • 3+ years of relevant experience in embedded design
  • High proficiency in programming experience using Python or Embedded C/C++
  • Highly collaborative mindset and strong communication skills
  • Experience with JIRA/Confluence or a similar system for tracking inputs/results.
  • Knowledge of electrical engineering fundamentals including circuit analysis and design
  • Preferred Requirements:

  • Experience in driver development and RTOS integration.
  • Experience with software build tools like Bazel, Scons, Cmake etc.
  • Experience with fundamental hardware components on PCB and their analysis tools.
  • Ability to write testing scripts for using scripting languages (Python)
  • Fluent in software fundamentals including software design and maintainability.
  • Hands-on experience in hardware bring-up, system debugging, and code optimization.
  • Knowledge of electrical engineering fundamentals including circuit analysis and design
  • What you'll receive in return:

    As part of the Ford family, you'll enjoy excellent compensation and a comprehensive benefits package that includes generous PTO, retirement, savings and stock investment plans, incentive compensation and much more. You'll also experience exciting opportunities for professional and personal growth and recognition.
