  • Practical knowledge of sensor and actuator physics.
  • Experience integrating real-time safety-critical control algorithms and embedded control software on microcontroller platforms.
  • Experience with electromechanical integration of mechatronic systems:
  • -- serial communications: Ethernet, CAN, LIN, UART, SPI
  • -- low voltage and high voltage power systems and I/O /
  • -- basic mechanical component assembly
  • Experience with commercial rapid controls prototyping systems, e.g. dSPACE.
  • -- I/O configuration, model configuration, test automation, fault injection
  • -- runtime operation, data visualization, collection, and analysis
  • Experience testing controllers on Hardware-in-the-Loop (HIL) systems.
  • Proficiency in MathWorks tools: MATLAB/Simulink is a must. Simulink-RT preferred.
  • Proficiency in Python is a must. C/C++ preferred.
  • Proficiency in modern software development workflows and practices, including version control, build and test systems, and peer review.


We are seeking a highly motivated controls integration engineer to support the development of controls for complex dynamical systems. - Collaborate in highly cross-functional environment and work closely with control design engineers, software engineers, systems integration engineers, and sensor and actuator design engineers. - Lead the planning and execution of control integration milestones, from simulation-based testing to verification on real hardware in broad operating conditions. - Work with software team to ensure robust controller implementation on embedded microcontrollers. - Work with modeling team to integrate models and controllers into simulation environment for rapid development and validation.
