Embedded System Engineer (80-100%)


The research group of Prof. Emilio Frazzoli at the Institute for Dynamic Systems and Control, Department of Mechanical and Process Engineering, ETH Zürich is looking for an

Embedded System Engineer (80-100%)

The position is available with immediate start and for an appointment of 1 year with a possible extension to 2 years. We would like you to contribute to our research in the areas of autonomous systems in general, and self-driving cars in particular. The position is not tied to a specific predetermined project. Your tasks would include software development for embedded platforms and microcontrollers (e.g. ARM cortex-M), calibration of complex sensor systems (e.g. DAVIS, Lidar), execution of start-up test and system debugging, help in maintaining a fleet of different types of robots (from RC-car size, GoKarts, to regular cars) as well as hard- and software implementation of sensors and actuators.

We welcome applicants with a university degree in Electronic Engineering, Software Engineering or an equivalent education. The successful candidate must have good C/C++ development skills, knowledge in Java or Python, PCB design and manufacturing. He or she should have experience with embedded platforms (e.g. Rapsberry Pi) and embedded Linux, with software engineering tools (e.g. Git), with communication protocols such as CAN, Ethernet, WLAN as well as experience in setting up and debugging complex robotics system, e.g. autonomous cars. Working experience with dSpace MicroAutoBox and Simulink is preferred and experience in the field of automotive electronics as control units, buses, communication protocols and diagnosis is an Advantage. Furthermore, the candidate should have good English and German language skills, have a proactive work style, and conceiving and producing solutions independently. Finally, he or she should have a driver's license.

We value a rigorous background, a fervid imagination and the ability to translate the rigorous and imaginative ideas into working code.

We offer an interesting position in our group that is proud of its excellence in teaching and outreach, which we see as complementary to our research activity, and we expect you to share this enthusiasm. At ETH, we plan to have two full-size autonomous cars, a few autonomous go-karts, and about 60 Duckiebots, give or take.

We look forward to receiving applications containing a CV, information about electronic devices that you have worked with, helped design, or manufacture, two references and a link to source code you wrote available online should be sent to Mr. Ueli Lott, Human Resources. Please note that we exclusively accept applications submitted through our online application portal. Applications via email or postal services will not be considered. Applications are processed as they arrive until the position is filled.
