SAFETY AND VERIFICATION & VALIDATION ENGINEER – TRANSPORTATION

Position:
Tempo indeterminato - Full-time


Sector:
V&V&S - Verification and Validation and Safety analysis R&D: Safety Critical System Architect & General Studies


Job Objective:
The candidate will work for the V&V&S (Verification and Validation and Safety analysis) projects, where the safety of people and environment is a key element of the project. The candidate at Resiltech will manage Safety Analysis and Verification and Validation activities along the Resiltech customers systems/products lifecycle in order to get the final system approval by the customer, the ISA (Independent Safety Assessor) and in general any Safety Authority in charge of the solution safety approval. Moreover the candidate will be involved in R&D activities at Resiltech where innovative technologies and cost effective methodologies are developed within the context of Regional, National and European co-founded Projects.


Key Responsibilities:
He/She will:

  • support the team in technical safety and RAM activities: identifying and analyzing the RAMS requirements (Contractual and System Requirements), defining the safety strategy, allocating the RAMS requirements to the subsystem components, assuring their implementation in the solutions, and interfacing the Relevant Safety Authority for the project.
  • support the team in safety analysis (FMEDA) on microcontroller architectures.
  • support the team in developing and verifying diagnostic software.
  • understand the basic safety concepts and safety design principles (checked-redundant, diversity, fail-safe, safety integrity, common mode and common cause failures, etc).
  • ensure SIL requirements and RAM requirements and their allocation to subsystems/components, providing the risk analysis if necessary;
  • provide hazard log management, including consolidation of hazards, traceability to requirements, design, verification and validation evidence;
  • define in the Safety Plan and RAM plan the technical activities to be performed during the project, and propose the relevant organization according to the CENELEC standards;
  • participate to Program/Project Meetings (internal and external: with the Customer, Resiltech customers and other entities) when scheduled and/or requested;
  • give evidence that the solution meets the defined RAMS requirements from a quantitative and a qualitative point of view;
  • enforce the proposed evidence of safety and RAM with reference to different standards, if needed, as CENELEC 501xx and ISO 26262.
  • give evidence of the fulfillment of the Norms requirements in relation to the V&V activities;
  • support the Project Manager in preparing the RAMS delivery;
  • demonstrate that the solution fulfils the required targets for Reliability Availability and Maintainability;
  • define main criteria for the safety acceptance of the solution.


Skills, Experience and Qualifications needed:

  • Master (Laurea Magistrale or equivalent) in Electronic Engineering, Telecommunication Engineering, Computer Science Engineering or Computer Science.
  • Preferred PhD in Electronic Engineering, Telecommunication Engineering, Computer Science Engineering or Computer Science.
