Complex systems require careful maintenance - ideally from people whose good ideas and enthusiasm can truly shine in a supportive work environment. Because people like this make IT unique, smart and ready for the future. Without IT, the innovative power of the BMW Group would simply not exist.


As part of the development of electronic control units (ECU), you are responsible for the implementation and further development of security concepts as part of the software architecture.


What awaits you?

  • You coordinate and implement security concepts in software architecture and ECU specifications and supplement them with specific requirements of the development team.
  • You create, verify, and coordinate risk analysis and security requirement specifications for the software architecture, as well as perform risk assessments and vulnerability analyses based on the ISO21434 and UN-ECE.
  • You are responsible for security solutions in series development towards internal software development teams and suppliers.
  • In addition, you define acceptance criteria for security solutions in software and vehicle integration and evaluate these criterias.
  • You are responsible for requirements engineering, tracing of the specification’s compliance with respect to cybersecurity demands.
  • Within an ECU project, you are responsible for the security mechanisms integrated into various operating systems such as Linux, QNX, Android, and AUTOSAR and represent them to the managers of the E/E and hardware/software system architecture and in relevant committees.
  • The security development takes place in close coordination with the affected development teams and the E/E architecture offices.


What should you bring along?

  • University degree in electrical engineering, computer science, or a comparable qualification.
  • Experience in the development of safety or cybersecurity relevant systems according to ISO/SAE21434 and UN-ECE 155, 156, and 157.
  • In-depth professional experience in the field of embedded ECUs system architecture with power and automotive controllers as well as in modern ARM-based SoC architectures.
  • Programming skills in C and at least one object-oriented programming language (e.g., C++, Rust).
  • Knowledge and experience of the entire vehicle I/O architecture as well as the corresponding vehicle lifecycle and bus technologies, protocols, and interfaces for CAN and Ethernet.
  • Experience in embedded software development as well as in the field of hardware and software architecture of software systems in serial use under Linux and Android as well as AUTOSAR, as well as experience with UML and Case Tool based modeling.
