General Motors Security and Access System Engineer - ENG0039643 in Warren, Michigan

Security and Access System engineer will lead the strategic development of Vehicle Operating State features. Features scope includes Power Mode, Teendriver Mode, and Valet Mode of the vehicle. System engineer will be responsible for developing system requirements, technical specifications, and D FMEAs for Power Mode covering Autonomous and conventional vehicles. System Engineer is responsible to ensure that system engineering methods are applied during the creation, development and validation of the feature functions. Individual is responsible for allocating system specification to lower level. Exercises technical direction over engineering support personnel and may have work direction responsibilities over a group with specific engineering objectives. Consults with supervisor and peers as required.

This is an exciting and rapidly expanding group within GM engineering. Be part of the future!
