You will use Embedded Coder to auto generate code from models and design and implement tests at model level to ensure compliance to standards and guidance, using tools such as Model Adviser. Key responsibilities will also include building content and input artefacts for embedded control system software builds in the delivery ‘stream' and undertaking control system software builds for prototype and production using semi-automated and CI pipeline.

You will work with the control system function engineers and test engineers to deliver high quality software on time ensuring commonality wherever possible with other applications. Review, manage and fix control system bugs found during the build process, following up with root cause analysis to develop lessons learnt to improve future quality, and support regular project meetings with the status of embedded control development and software integration & build activity.


The ideal candidate will be passionate about creating and delivering high quality software, be self-motivated, with strong personal management capabilities, and able to work with minimal supervision, engaging a wide range of stakeholders effectively.
