(Senior) System Development Engineer - Audio/Video (m/f/d)

At CARIAD, it's our mission to transform automotive mobility for everyone, everywhere, making it safer, more sustainable, and more comfortable in every way.To deliver on that promise, we're building a unified technology and software platform, including a vehicle OS and cloud platform, as well as a unified architecture. As a 100% subsidiary of the Volkswagen Group, we're developing solutions for all of its brands, including Volkswagen, Audi, and Porsche, and will bring our software to over 40 million vehicles by 2030.

Is this an easy task? Not at all! To tackle such a huge challenge, we need a great team. And that's where you come in. You'll join more than 5,000 CARIDIANS already working on the latest vehicle features and functions like automated driving, state-of-the-art charging technology, as well as a new digital ecosystem. Together, we're bringing sustainable change to one of the largest companies in the world.


We are developing the technical heart of the car, and this consists of the highly integrated computing platforms for different domains like Infotainment, Cockpit, Body, Connected Vehicle and more.
Our team is a specific unit within the architecture and development Department, responsible for all communication-relevant aspects such as ECU internal communication as well as communication from our computer towards the rest of the vehicle, typically via Ethernet or CAN-FD. Our responsibility spans from the support of the selection of the needed Hardware, throughout the specification, implementation and verification of all relevant system enablers for the communication over Ethernet and CAN-FD. Moreover, our team is responsible for OS-level features such as IP-stack, firewall and communication protocols (e.g SOME/IP, ViWi).
In order to connect and synchronize various audio and video devices like sound appliances, cameras and displays within the vehicle, we utilize audio- and video transmission over Ethernet RTP including data encryption and high efficient video compression. Based on Ethernet RTP, Audio- and Video transmission including data encryption and high efficient video compression is used to connect and synchronize various audio and video devices like sound devices, cameras and displays within the vehicle.
