Job Description

Diagnostic Platform Release Engineer

We are looking for a Diagnostic Platform Release Engineer to join our rapidly developing Electrical Engineering team. This role will be split between our new offices in Reading (2-3 days per week) and remote working.

We're working to solve some of the most challenging environmental problems in city centre, last-mile logistics, which means an opportunity to have a significant impact on the world around us, and what it will look like in the future, from your very first day.

We want to revolutionise city centre logistics in order to make urban environments better places to live and work. We’re creating the world's safest commercial vehicles by reimagining conventional truck design principles, thanks to our full-electric drivetrain, and thus protecting vulnerable road users. Our electric powertrain also eliminates harmful tailpipe emissions, removing harmful pollutants that contribute to climate change. A crucial part of our journey is building a team of outstanding employees who share our vision for the future and our values of safety and sustainability.

You’ll be joining a world class team, backed by top investors that all believe in the future we are creating. We have ambitious growth plans for 2021 and beyond, scaling our team and activity at an exciting pace. We are a people-led company focused around creating an exceptional business, and all employees have a high level of autonomy and a platform to make a real impact.

  • Manage and track the delivery of ECU diagnostic data (UDS specifications, CDD/ODX, security data, reflash specifications & EOLs specifications etc) by using project tracking tools such as Jira and by liaising with suppliers and component owners to meet platform/program timing.
  • Using CANdela Studio and ODX Studio to author, modify, check, and release diagnostic description files (CDD/ODX).
  • Ensure Diagnostic data is delivered in accordance with the Volta software acceptance process to verify completeness and correctness of data.
  • Use the Volta diagnostic platform to input ECU diagnostic data and lead the delivery of diagnostic packages to meet platform/program timing that will be used across Engineering, Manufacturing and Service.
  • Use the Volta diagnostic platform to configure ECU reflash and end of line sequences
  • Working alongside suppliers and component owners to guide them through Volta diagnostic standards.

We would like you to have:

  • Degree in Electrical/Electronic Engineering or a related field
  • 3+ years’ experience in automotive diagnostics
  • Good knowledge of automotive diagnostic standards: ISO-14229 (UDS), ISO-15765 (DoCAN), ISO-13400 (DoIP), SAE-J2012 (DTC Definitions), ISO-22901 (ODX)
  • Experience authoring/editing diagnostic description files with CANdela Studio & ODX Studio
  • Familiar with ECU reprogramming and end of line sequences
  • Knowledge of automotive communication protocols, Ethernet CAN, LIN
  • Experience with project/issue tracking tools such a Jira

A typical Volta Trucks person:

  • Thinks and acts in a non-traditional way.
  • Closely shares our values of safety, sustainability, and electrification.
  • Is action-orientated, proactive and works at pace.
  • Is transparent, progressive & entrepreneurial.
  • Is adaptable, resilient, and open to change.

What working here will be like:

  • We are a small, fast-growing team so you will have a high degree of ownership and accountability, and you will be directly exposed to all areas of the business.
  • We are a start-up, so don't have a lot of structures and processes. Things change quickly and we acknowledge when we get things wrong and change direction.
  • We are a diverse business, from many nationalities and backgrounds.
  • We really value our people. We have a flexible & remote work environment and a great benefits package & pension scheme
  • We are committed to creating a first-class work environment. Every employee has a voice, and we encourage open communication.
