1) Systems/Software Engineer with Real Time Embedded Systems Experience (Vancouver)

Position Description

We are currently seeking a Systems/Software Safety Engineer with real-time embedded systems experience. This individual will contribute to safety engineering tasks in the context of client projects across a range of safety-critical industries.

We are looking for an individual with strong critical thinking and problem solving skills, and who can simultaneously manage high level system concepts and low level “close to hardware” technical details. Broadly based knowledge of system design and architecture in the context of safety critical systems is essential to this role. The role will involve safety assessments on large distributed computing systems and platforms, or safety-critical industrial control systems. This individual will be required to interact effectively with engineers, managers and other stakeholders representing a variety of engineering disciplines and other interests.

This position may require some travel for short durations within Canada and abroad.

Required qualifications and experience:

  • Bachelor degree in Engineering or Computer Science.
  • Graduate degree preferred.
  • Experience with highly disciplined software development processes including detailed specification and/or modelling of functional requirements.
  • At least 2 years of demonstrated professional experience with the development of real time embedded software for systems deployed on a real-time operating system (RTOS).
  • Familiarity with common methods and techniques of safety engineering such as Fault Tree Analysis (FTA) and Failure Modes Effects Analysis (FTA).
  • Familiarity with safety-related engineering standards and related guidance such as MIL STD 882E, RTCA DO-178C, ISO 26262, IEC 61508.
  • Familiarity with common methods and techniques for analyzing the reliability and availability of real-time embedded software.
  • Familiarity with the concepts and methods of managing cybersecurity risk for real-time embedded systems.
  • Very strong verbal and written communication skills.
  • Highly cooperative, motivated, ideas-driven, and able to self-manage.
  • Demonstrated ability to understand complex systems that are the integrated product of electrical, mechanical, software/hardware and other engineering disciplines.
  • Eligibility for Government of Canada Security clearance would be an asset.
