    Hardware Architect Lead ADAS (m/f/d)

    This role is responsible for leading Flex’s technology development in support of prospective and active ADAS programs. You will interface with multiple internal and external customers while identifying requirements, technology and development activities for ADAS ECUs. You will provide technical leadership to develop internal roadmaps, engage potential customers, and propose technical solutions to win OEM business worldwide. 

    You are aware of safety, security, and regulatory requirements. For design activities, the Architect must be capable of creation and analysis of multiple design alternatives, assessing such alternatives based on given or self-defined criteria, and selecting the most suitable options to refine to a final design. Your direction and oversight will extend into Flex’s worldwide design center teams as they onboard, develop and deploy ADAS solutions to mass production. 

    This position requires and experiences professional with a background in automotive ECU electronics design from OEMs or Tier 1 and have a track record of successfully launching new automotive ADAS systems into production.

    Here is a glimpse of what you’ll do…

    • Define and develop AVS hardware architectures for high performance, high availability computing systems:  research and understand leading edge technologies, components and vendor offerings, formulate complete design concepts to meet customer product goals.
    • Create detailed system block diagrams, partitioning plans, functional specifications and other documentation to drive hardware design and implementation.
    • Communicate and disseminate developed architecture to design implementation teams.  Develop transfer of information plans and execute to program schedule needs.
    • Provide ongoing, expert and consultative support to design teams to complete implementation of design intent to fab-ready ECAD and MCAD assets. 
    • Provide expert review of schematics, layout, electro-mechanical design and verification test plans to ensure design implementation meets specified hardware architecture.
    • Communicate and collaborate with key technology providers and customer product designers to develop roadmaps for forward looking new development and existing product improvements.
    • Participate in program quoting efforts to create preliminary architectures, development strategies and work scope to drive resource estimations.
    • Provide synthesized reports to project management, engineering leadership and customer teams of development status and risks with regards to implementation adhering to architectural requirements.

    • A Bachelor’s degree in System, Electrical or Computer engineering or related fields.
    • A strong capability and desire to learn, absorb new information and adapt to challenging project needs.
    • Ten years or more experience in product development activities for complex, fault tolerant and resilient computing systems (eg: server, medical diagnostic, avionics, automotive, etc).
    • Demonstrated experience developing electrical and mechanical system architectures and associated high quality system and sub system technical documentation.
    • Experience working with major computing and communications chipset vendors, knowledge of industry trends and silicon roadmaps,
    • Experience with one or more of the following computing technologies: server class x86 processors, multi core ARM systems, FPGA and ISP technologies, GPU/TPU for artificial intelligence (AI) applications.
    • Experience defining hardware safety strategies and mechanisms to support Functional Safety product requirements
    • Understanding of the requirements and challenges of complex electro-mechanical systems including assembly, ingress, thermal and robustness challenges.
    • Excellent communication skills for transferring architecture needs to design teams, collaborating in system development and supporting design execution.  Ability to travel internationally to support these activities.
    • A high level of analytical ability and a positive and motivated attitude.
