Role: Engineering Director, Vehicle SW. Looking for a C++ expert to lead the technological and philosophical direction of a platform which will enable development of an exceptionally programmable vehicle

- Lead and grow a team. The team is currently small, but will eventually become substantially larger. The leadership component is critical. You must also be comfortable acting as a public advocate in this role. (If you prefer to be an individual contributor there is a lot of room for you as well)
- You will mentor multiple engineering teams across a variety of disciplines towards a collective vision and goals
- You will collaborate with a wide variety of external partners, while also communicating with the broader open source community in this space
- You will bridge large-scale, modern SW development into the traditional automotive world. Re-imagining things is not a cliche, it is expected

- You will oversee discussions pertaining to tooling and application development across teams to ensure continued high level engagement around architecture
- There will be much more, as you will truly be creating something novel that will have a lasting impact on the mobility space and the world. This will be very challenging work, but also extremely rewarding, inspirational, and not to mention FUN!

Core Qualifications:
- You must be communicative and engaging. Pair this with an obsession for creating high performing, robust, and reliable systems. You also must be a problem solver and have a knack for creating trust among a variety of stakeholders
- You need to be a builder, and highly adept at C++ coding and best practices. You should be no stranger to shipping large-scale systems to production
- You should be familiar with low latency, real-time operating system architectures (e.g., Linux RT, QNX) and/or operating system architectures for embedded devices (e.g., iOS, Android, embedded Linux)
- In past projects you will have shipped code frequently. Working under Agile Methodologies should be second nature for you
- You should have a solid grasp of cybersecurity best practices

Nice to haves:
- Experience working with Rust code bases
- Experience developing automotive software (broader embedded experience is the baseline)
- A grasp of automotive safety standards (e.g., ISO26262 / IEC61508, MISRA)
- An understanding of modern development tools (e.g., CI/CD, Containerization)
- Experience working with cloud infrastructure and tools
