  • Furthermore, you define concepts and the architecture of network and IPC components and how they interact within the E/E and the hardware/software system.
  • You write requirement specifications for RFQs and assess the quotations technically.
  • To realize the architecture and assist in component implementation within ECU development projects, you work together with internal development teams and suppliers.
  • In addition, you support project managers with planning and cost calculation and feature approval criteria definition.
  • Within the software domain you are responsible for the software architecture implementing network and IPC protocols, especially AVB and high level ethernet protocols, and IPC protocols spanning across all chipsets and multiple operating systems like Linux, Android and AUTOSAR.
  • You analyze incorrect behavior of the running system for architectural defects and provide solutions together with the development teams.
