The Embedded Software Architect will be part of the Embedded Architecture Team, within the Software Engineering Function. The team works with other software teams to specify, develop and maintain the architecture for all embedded hardware (compute platforms) and software. This includes owning functional, logical and physical architectures, and insure clear information dissemination across multiple departments.
Ultimately, we will design reliable, scalable, real-time (or near-real time) applications that make Hyperloop One a reality. We are seeking candidates with various levels of experience to join our team of qualified, diverse individuals at our Los Angeles facility.
