  • Define the safety functions (specialty: function development).
  • Perform safety analyses (e.g. FTA, HAZOP, and support the development of suitable safety architectures).
  • Present and justify the safety concepts and functional safety process to customers and auditors.
  • Implement and maintain a functional safety process, supporting process improvement, methods and tools relevant to functional safety.
  • Provide technical leadership for Safety Standards and Safety Analyses, including checking and approving analyses performed by others.
  • Manage and perform tool and software classification and qualification.

  • Proactively engage project teams, ensuring safety is accommodated and understood within the product development process.
  • Actively support all projects with analysis and expert advice.


We are not expecting candidates to have proven know-how of functional safety standards (e.g. ISO26262) but experience in quality processes or the automotive domain is highly welcome. That's why we would like to encourage automotive quality engineers, requirement/system engineers or even hardware designers to apply if they would like to pursue the career in functional safety domain.

  • Good communication skills and ability to work in a team.
  • Passion for learning and solving engineering problems.
