For over 110 years Aston Martin has made the most exquisitely addictive performance sports cars. But no one builds an Aston Martin on their own. Behind these legends and landmarks are hundreds of dreamers, darers, and doers who make extraordinary happen every day. That’s why the name of everyone who has ever worn our famous wings is inscribed on the wall of our factory. As we embark on an exciting new era for the business, we need the very best people to write their chapter on our journey to become the world’s most desirable ultra-luxury British performance brand.


Join us.

Job Purpose:

Responsible for HIL-based ADAS and Autonomous Driving (AD) validation and verification (V&V) activities and signoff. To plan, build, commission, and manage activities to support product testing. The role will work with the broader V&V team and external suppliers to deliver scalable HIL-based ADAS DVP and AD validation. The position will improve DVP efficiency and System robustness.

Key Duties & Responsibilities:

  • Responsible for creating the HIL system strategy and vehicle simulation environments (hardware and software) and models in alignment with functional requirements.
  • Integration of plant models into the HIL rig and ensuring the virtual tools and HIL rig coverage are capable of future model changes
  • Ensures the test platform is enabled for either manual or automated test cases in collaboration with the target customer
  • Maintenance of the test platform inclusive of updates to hardware, software, models, framework, measurement, instrumentation, and data extraction.
  • Analytical skillset to interpret the data generated and Triage to identify nonproduct test platform defects and subsequent root cause
  • Oversee commissioning and acceptance testing of the facility
  • Cross collaboration and technical forums with other architects & developers to drive shared best practices and continuous learning in conjunction with SW & HW suppliers

Qualification & Experience:

  • Good knowledge of ADAS & AD electronic systems
  • Proficient in real-time simulation environments in the use of the dSPACE tool chain especially the configuration desk and Control Desk
  • Proven experience in MATLAB, and Simulink Simulation toolset
  • Experience in modeling physical systems for HIL simulation in the following domains, but not limited to, engine simulation, chassis, road network, traffic, sensors, and actuators, with a focus on ADAS and Chassis sensors
  • Solid understanding of Systems Engineering and V&V processes and methods
  • Strong technical knowledge of modeling communication protocols used in the Automotive sector (CAN, LIN, FlexRay, Ethernet) using either dSPACE or Vector software.
  • Proven technical expertise in delivering complex HIL test environments with more than 4 real ECUs in the loop.
  • Experience in virtual validation planning, budgeting, coordination, and tracking
  • Active safety, automated driving, or autonomous vehicle-related experience – in algorithm development, calibration, design/release, testing, or validation.
  • Experience in Automotive industry simulation software such as  VI-Grade CRT/IPG/ASM and DriveSim
  • Object-oriented programming – such as Python or C/C++, automation desk
  • Good understanding of IT infrastructure such as networking, databases, data management, software version control, network license servers
  • BEng in relevant discipline (Control/Electrical/Mechanical Engineering, Automotive Engineering, Mechatronics Engineering, Physics, etc.)
  • Proficiency in MATLAB/Simulink
  • Proficiency in real-time simulation software for ADAS and Chassis components simulation


  • Data-driven engineering approach and process-improvement focus
  • Passion for engineering and continuous learning/improvement, striving for technical excellence
  • Efficiency, engagement, self-motivation, commitment
  • Problem-solving, resilience to work under pressure
  • Team player and team builder
