Allen Park, MI (Onsite 100%)


  • The Hardware in the Loop (HiL) Engineer supports the product development and system integration processes by developing test procedures for automated execution, implementing tests using Hardware in the Loop equipment, documenting and reviewing execution reports, reporting incidents, and tracking software updates to fix issues. The HiL Engineer develops expertise in software test design and has advanced knowledge in vehicle functional partitioning, electrical and communication architectures,embedded software processes, and the Global Product Development System. This role requires close collaboration with feature owners, engineering, and suppliers to develop a strong understanding of the vehicle functions and implement appropriate test design strategies for early identification of defects and to provide evidence of defect elimination

Skills Required:

  • Single point of contact for the test organization and the feature owner, engineering team, and supplier
  • Manage the test project for the assigned features including integration/definition, scope/coverage, time, communications, and risk
  • Develop and negotiate the testing scope and statement of work
  • Support the tradeoff analysis of test requirements vs test environment capabilities to define test scope and instrumentation strategies
  • Analyze requirements, vehicle components electrical schematics, functional specifications, and FMEA documentation
  • Design, maintain and execute test procedures in alignment with test design guidelines and strategy
  • Document test environment, automation, and vehicle variant management requirements
  • Implement and validate test environment, automation, and vehicle variant management solutions
  • Develop test procedures to validate the test environment (intake tests)
  • Analyze test execution results to generate reports, document incidents, and drive them to resolution
  • Troubleshoot vehicle systems and test environment functionality to minimize false positive incident reports
