Specialty Development Senior
Location: Dearborn, MI
Interview: WebEx
Duration: 12 Months

Position Description:
Development of UniPhi interface tools, including management and release of the Powertrain (P/T) control module, test variable, and plant model artifacts in UniPhi, to enable efficient usages by Software-In-the-Loop (SIL) and Hardware-In-the-Loop (HIL) engineers to develop and validate new control system technologies. Additional development work on Powertrain Calibration applications proprietary to Ford

Experience Required:
1. Matlab, Simulink modeling experience 2. Uniphi experience in Powertrain (PT) calibration, control software development and diagnostics 3. Coding in C, Python scripting
