Responsibilities include but not limited to: 
•                 Design and develop transmission control algorithms and validate these changes for production implementation
•                 Create requirements for implementing these algorithms into transmission software
•                 Perform verification and validation of these algorithms using SIL/HIL and in vehicle.
•                 Establish and execute design verification plans for control logic development
•                 Conduct design failure mode effects analysis for control logic changes
•                 Support transmission hardware improvements, cost reduction efforts through control logic development and other quality initiatives
•                 Support transmission calibration efforts by contributing to calibration guide and base calibration development
•                 Support calibration verification and release transmission calibrations for production
• Bachelor of Science in Computer, Electrical, or Mechanical Engineering
• Minimum 3-5 year of engineering experience, however, an advanced degree and/or academic research in a related field may count towards experience requirement
• Basic understanding of powertrain functions (transmission, engines, driveline)
