Battery Management System Software Verification Engineer #899242
Job Description:
The Battery Verification Engineer works within a team to validate battery management software in electrified powertrains. Will be directly involved in validating controls strategies and embedded software products for automotive battery management systems using hardware-in-the-loop systems (HIL).  The Battery Software Engineer develops and executes software test plans in compliance with project timing and budget. This will include cross-functional activity of developing requirements-based test procedures, HIL upgrades and plant modeling and working with third party engineering services to execute test automation. who must be a strong team player and willing to work in a fast-paced environment  Will also lead and prioritize work of engineering resources on a day to day basis.
Responsibilities include but not limited to:
  • Develop and execute the verification of battery management software at the HIL level.
  • Analyze the requirements and features for the system under test, including all the sensors, actuators and its interactions with other systems.
  • Define the test framework that simulates and verifies the identified features and performance, both quantitatively and subjectively
  • Establish the test framework to execute the software unit and integration testing including the Model In the Loop (MIL), Software In the Loop (SIL) and Hardware In the Loop (HIL) testing
  • Develop Software verification plan based on the system and software requirement specifications, functional safety requirements and the robustness requirements.
  • Develop the test procedures, test plans and execute them in the project.
  • Define the requirements and design the test setup for Software verification on the Hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) or Software Test Bench using target Hardware.
  • Run software verification for planned software releases.
  • Work with engineering services companies to automate the testing and determine the test set up needs for automation as well as their assigned test work.
  • Summarize results, track issues, establish timing.
  • Determine equipment needs and allocation of equipment.
  • Independently resolve issues with minimal guidance and support.
  • Bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering
  • Master’s degree in Electrical Engineering preferred
  • Experience in automotive vehicle development preferred.
  • 3+ years’ experience in embedded software verification is required.
  • 3+ years hands-on experience in the designing of software verification/validation test setups for the embedded software is required.
  • Good understanding of embedded hardware and software design is required.
  • Experience with battery cell simulators (dSPACE/ETAS/NI)
  • Experience in network protocols (i.e. CAN) and Vector tools is required.
  • Experience verifying software to a process (e.g. CMMI / SPICE) is required.
  • Experience with Software Configuration and Change Management is required.
  • Experience with automated test systems and developing automation tests using CAPL, C# and Python is preferred.
  • Experience with microcontroller emulators, debuggers (Lauterbach), logic analyzers, CANalyzers/ CANoe, CANape and similar test equipment is preferred.
  • Excellent organizational and interpersonal skills is required.
  • Excellent time management skills is required.
  • Ability to work independently with minimal supervision is required.
Additional Information / Must Have's:
  • Some experiences using s/w HIL, testing software, creating automated software scripts (Dspace HIL preferred, automotive controller application preferred, at least one of the three things I mentioned should be true)
  • 2 years would be nice but any experience would probably be OK, since it is so hard to fill these positions
  • The position would be mostly at CTC, since that is where the test equipment is.
  • No vehicle driving necessary
  • No anticipated travel
Any experience with Battery Management Systems (BMS) for electric and hybrid vehicles, especially in s/w, would be a plus.
