Embedded Software Architect

Mountain View, CA
About us:
Aeva is building the next generation of sensing and perception for autonomous vehicles and beyond. With its unique ability to measure instantaneous velocity for each pixel, long-range performance at high resolutions, while being free from LiDAR or sunlight interference, Aeva’s 4D LiDAR is built from the ground up at silicon photonics scale for mass-market applications.

Role Overview:
The Embedded SW architect will Interface and communicate design/requirements to internal and external customers.

What you'll do

  • Design, build and maintain SW for the embedded systems.
  • Interface and communicate design/requirements to internal and external customers
  • Analyze the current embedded software architecture to identify weaknesses and develop opportunities for improvement.
  • Arbitrate software system conflicts or shortcomings in existing or future embedded designs between all stakeholders.
  • Properly document designs and software architectural frameworks.
  • Collaboratively partners with other teams to create embedded designs that will satisfy broader needs.
  • Analyze safety-related standards and implement strategies with these external standards in mind.
  • Work with peers to review code and assure the best software engineering practices.
  • Reviews code for corrections and adherence to best practices and programming standards.
  • Investigates the cause of product failures of a software nature and recommends and implements corrective action as directed.
  • Support board bring-up of new SoC platforms
