      Job description

      In this position, you will have the unique opportunity to spend up to 3 years abroad at our vibrant R&D center in Bucharest where 300 engineers are developing automotive and security solutions - covering every step from concept to mass production.

      In the course of your long-term assignment, you will in particular cover the following tasks:

      • Building up and developing a team of system engineers defining the architecture of our sensor chips; your tasks will include steering of development activities, coaching, training, recruiting to build up the department, and developing people towards a high performance team
      • Understanding product requirements and translating them into development specifications for innovative automotive sensor chips with your team
      • Ensuring a stable resource pipeline and support personnel resource planning in alignment with project managers
      • Interface to all other functional areas (Circuit Design, Test Development, Component Verification, Application Engineering, etc.) to ensure a smooth and high quality project execution
      • Driving rollouts of tools, methodologies and work processes to continuously improve efficiency and effectiveness of the team
      • Complying with standards such as ISO 26262
      • Cooperating with universities and other research partners to attract young talents for your team


      With your way of being, you inspire your team to succeed.

      • Technical leadership and/or Project management experience in an industrial environment
      • Ideally 6+ years of R&D working experience within the semiconductor industry
      • Skills in simulation and modelling of electronic systems including appropriate tools (e.g.SystemC, MatLab …)
      • Knowledge of requirement engineering and automotive safety standard like ISO 26262
      • Know-how in Analog and/or digital concept work
      • Experience in firmware design methodologies as an additional asset
      • Willingness to travel on a regular basis
      • A Hands-on mentality with a strong process mindset
      • Fluent English skills

      This position is subject to the collective agreement for workers and employees in the electrical and electronics industry, employment Group J (www.feei.at/arbeitswelt/kv-tabellen-statistik/mindestloehne-und-gehaelter).

      About Us

      Part of your life. Part of tomorrow.
      We make life easier, safer and greener - with technology that achieves more, consumes less and is accessible to everyone. Microelectronics from Infineon is the key to a better future. Efficient use of energy, environmentally-friendly mobility and security in a connected world - we solve some of the most critical challenges that our society faces while taking a conscientious approach to the use of natural resources.

      In the Automotive (ATV) segment, we develop high-value products and services to advance fully and partly self-driving cars. To enable radar-based advanced driver assistance systems, we deliver end-to-end solutions to capture and process complex, safety-critical data from the vehicle's surroundings. These include radar sensor ICs as well as microcontrollers optimized for radar signal preprocessing. We are helping to realize the Zero Vision for road traffic safety through our certified components and subsystems. In the connected car of the future, our security microcontrollers will help protect sensitive data more effectively. In addition, ATV is making a valuable contribution to the development of e-mobility. Power semiconductors are driving electric motors and innovative system solutions using silicon carbide are increasing the efficiency and reducing the weight of chargers and inverters. These technologies are paving the way for electric vehicles that offer the same range with smaller batteries. In combustion engines too, power semiconductors are making a difference by reducing exhaust emissions.
