General Motors Systems Engineering: End-to-End Systems Engineer for Navigation and Mapping - ENG0039676 in Warren, Michigan

Join our team of experienced leaders in the fields of navigation and mapping as we define the features and technology available to route your Supercruise and other GM vehicles to wherever the future takes you.

Systems engineers are recognized subject matter experts in their domain and are responsible for creation of detailed end-to-end systems design requirements for technical implementation of features and functions. They must comprehend the interfaces and interactions between in-vehicle systems, consumer devices, GM back office and other cloud service environments. Systems engineers will interact across organizations and with suppliers to develop new feature and functions and also to ensure features and functions are integrated effectively into the vehicle and end-to-end systems.

The following are expected outputs for the Systems Engineer role:

  • Lead and participate in cross-functional E2E feature development teams (feature owner, systems engineers, and other key stakeholders) to define all vehicle, mobile device, and back office systems as necessary for multiple features
  • Interact with cybersecurity, legal, and privacy GM representatives to ensure components, systems, and communication protocols are specified in a secure and legal fashion while respecting a user’s privacy
  • Align with product managers and suppliers to deliver new features and enhancements to existing features
  • Actively test new features as they are released
  • Support documentation of feature requirements.
  • Support, analyze, and create feature sets
  • Perform feature sizing assessments
  • Define and specify system-level interfaces using system modeling tools in collaboration with navigation and other teams
  • Support development of feature technical specifications
  • Lead necessary architecture modifications to support new and improved features and ensure modifications are completed both within and without Infotainment areas
  • Create and maintain system technical specifications and lower-level design element specifications in the DOORs environment
  • Lead and support development of feature context diagrams (DCDs) and data flow diagrams (DFDs) to the necessary levels of decomposition
  • Allocate and specify system requirements for features
  • Conduct and participate in feature and system DFMEAs
  • Create and support ATW plans for features
  • Approve new feature content
  • Review and approve validation and verification plans for features
  • Lead peer reviews of feature- and system-level specifications
  • Generate Infotainment technical solutions for current and new vehicle programs
  • Provide technical leadership for advanced technology development
  • Perform complex design analysis at multiple levels of design
  • Plan and implement tests for new features
  • Lead and support design and release teams in feature and system creation and definition
