    About Rivian

    Rivian is on a mission to keep the world adventurous forever. This goes for the emissions-free Electric Adventure Vehicles we build, and the curious, courageous souls we seek to attract. 

    \n

     

    \n

    As a company, we constantly challenge what’s possible, never simply accepting what has always been done. We reframe old problems, seek new solutions and operate comfortably in areas that are unknown. Our backgrounds are diverse, but our team shares a love of the outdoors and a desire to protect it for future generations. 


    Role Summary

    In this position, you will be responsible for enabling software-in-the-loop for a vehicle model predicting different vehicle attributes such as range & efficiency, performance, vehicle dynamics, thermal behavior, etc. You will be the primary point of contact from the vehicle modeling team to control teams, establishing the connection between different vehicle software and the vehicle plant model.


    Responsibilities

      \n
    • Integrate vehicle software into the vehicle model.
    • \n
    • Automate integration processes to minimize human interactions in a way that newer versions of the software are automatically accessible by the vehicle platform.
    • \n
    • Convert software into FMUs (functional mockup units) for runtime optimization.
    • \n
    • Create recipes from software algorithms of the main controllers and communicate them to other team members to create simple controllers mirroring those algorithms.
    • \n
    • Work closely with control teams to enable their optimization needs in an integrated vehicle model which allows for tuning of controllers’ parameters.
    • \n

    Qualifications

      \n
    • 3+ years of professional experience in a related engineering field
    • \n
    • MSc or PhD in engineering or computer science
    • \n
    • Excellent programming skills in Matlab, Python, C/C++, etc.
    • \n
    • Prior experience with system-level simulation platforms such as Matlab Simulink, Gamma-Technologies GT-SUITE, Siemens Amesim, IPG CarMaker, etc.
    • \n
    • Prior experience with software-in-the-loop (SIL) implementation
    • \n
    • Prior experience with Agile software development practices such as JIRA, Confluence, Git, etc.
    • \n
    • Excellent communication, documentation, and organizational skills
    • \n
    • Capable of working well with multi-disciplinary teams
    • \n
    • Self-motivated individuals who are able to work with minimal supervision, from planning to implementation
    • \n
    • Eager to explore new solutions
    • \n
    • Detailed-oriented
    • \n

Our backgrounds are diverse, but our team shares a love of the outdoors and a desire to protect it for future generations. 


    Role Summary

    In this position, you will be responsible for enabling software-in-the-loop for a vehicle model predicting different vehicle attributes such as range & efficiency, performance, vehicle dynamics, thermal behavior, etc. You will be the primary point of contact from the vehicle modeling team to control teams, establishing the connection between different vehicle software and the vehicle plant model.


    Responsibilities

    • Integrate vehicle software into the vehicle model.
    • Automate integration processes to minimize human interactions in a way that newer versions of the software are automatically accessible by the vehicle platform.
    • Convert software into FMUs (functional mockup units) for runtime optimization.
    • Create recipes from software algorithms of the main controllers and communicate them to other team members to create simple controllers mirroring those algorithms.
    • Work closely with control teams to enable their optimization needs in an integrated vehicle model which allows for tuning of controllers’ parameters.

    Qualifications

    • 3+ years of professional experience in a related engineering field
    • MSc or PhD in engineering or computer science
    • Excellent programming skills in Matlab, Python, C/C++, etc.
    • Prior experience with system-level simulation platforms such as Matlab Simulink, Gamma-Technologies GT-SUITE, Siemens Amesim, IPG CarMaker, etc.
    • Prior experience with software-in-the-loop (SIL) implementation
    • Prior experience with Agile software development practices such as JIRA, Confluence, Git, etc.
    • Excellent communication, documentation, and organizational skills
    • Capable of working well with multi-disciplinary teams
    • Self-motivated individuals who are able to work with minimal supervision, from planning to implementation
    • Eager to explore new solutions
    • Detailed-oriented
