Job Description:

MATLAB Simulink Controls Engineer Hybrid EV Powertrain
Are you looking for a role where you can use your knowledge of MATLAB Simulink algorithm development to make a difference in powertrain performance and features? Would you like to work for a company that provides an innovative work environment, flexible schedules, and ongoing professional development?

Who we are:
LER TechForce is an industry leader in embedded controls, software, functional safety, and engineering IT talent. For over 20 years LER has been working with customers across North America to meet their engineering resource challenges.
We have a position for an experienced MATLAB Simulink algorithm development engineer to develop new and modify existing features. This role will dev elop and test new software for powertrain and drivetrain solutions to deliver industry leading performance and vehicle range

Job Location Austin, TX

What you will be doing:

  • The Powertrain Controls Engineer will lead the controls and software development to design and develop compliant embedded control software for Class 8 truck applications
  • This individual will be also responsible for driving the use and adoption of Model Based Development methodologies during the VPI process, which includes Auto Code Generation (ACG) and Hardware in the Loop (HIL) testing during the design and verification & validation of embedded control software on new products.
  • Design, develop, implement, test, debug, troubleshoot, optimize and maintain embedded control software for powertrain and drivetrain control ECUs from low-level base software (HAL, complex device drivers) all the way up to the application layer, under various software architecturescovering all Software Development Life cycle (SDLC) activities of embedded software.
  • Support model based development, auto code generation and integration of power electronics and electric machine application control software using Matlab/Simulink tool chain to meet control system requirements.
  • Software integration, releases and maintenance using software configuration management and version control tools (GIT, etc.).
  • Interface and coordinates with system engineering team and power electronics & control design teams to ensure control software requirements are decomposed appropriately and thoroughly analyzed prior to software design, development, and implementation
  • Develop requirements, interfaces, and supervisory control algorithms for torque path, thermal, high voltage controls, functional safety, and other functions

    The ideal candidate will be knowledgeable in the following areas:

    • Electronics OR controls background
    • MATLAB Simulink development and Simulink simulation
    • Knowledge of integration of base software and application software components. Ability to debug the software, identify, fix or report the issues using a debugger.
    • Knowledge and hands-on experience with ETAS and MDA
    • Experience with real-time operating systems for embedded software development.
    • Hybrid/electric torque path, thermal, or HV architectures
    • Knowledge of embedded control software development using the 'V' process for both design and verification/validation activities.
    • Good communicator written and verbal
    • Great collaborator

      What you'll get:

      • Full benefits: medical, dental, 401K match
      • Ongoing professional development opportunities
      • The opportunity to work on industry-leading projects

        What you'll need to be successful:

        • College, university, or equivalent BA or BS degree in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, or Software Engineering.
        • Experience in developing and implementing control algorithms following software develop lifecycle using industry best design practices and guidelines.
        • Familiar with basics and controls of various power electronics devices and converters. Experience with various microcontroller platforms and standard peripheral components.
        • At least 3+ years of relevant, applicable experience and development knowledge base software function modules, configuration, and integration.
        • DC, CAN, QSPI and Vector tools
        • Experience in embedded control software design and development using C/C++.
        • Experience in low-level device driver development (SPI, UART, CAN, LIN, I2C, PWM, etc.) and boot-loader development.
