Junior Automotive Engineer

Settore/Area di riferimento



Napoli, Reggio Emilia, Torino

Tipologia contrattuale

Contratto a tempo determinato


The Automotive area, engaged in the V-Cycle with a focus on software development, testing and HiL methodology, is looking for talented recent graduates in Automation, Mechatronics, Computer Science, Electronics or Electrical Engineering.

Your opportunity:

You will be involved in major national and international projects using methodologies capable of moving quickly from design to implementation. You will be supported by a team of specialists, who will train you to be ready to manage projects for our customers with increasing autonomy, and you will be responsible for the quality of your work and its alignment with objectives.
You will develop your knowledge through one of the following activities:

  • Development of embedded software and control algorithms: Kineton covers the entire V-cycle of software, in particular ranging from the generation of basic software with Autosar Vector tools to the development of models for application software with a Model-Based Design approach. Kineton also follows the configuration and development of the communication protocols present on the vehicles (CAN, LIN, Ethernet, etc.) and the management, in terms of computational power and memory allocation, of the microprocessors present on the various ECUs.
  • Validation & Verification: with a view to producing products with high-quality standards, a testing phase is necessary so that the software development is compliant with the standards defined by the automotive sector. Specifically, Kineton carries out its testing activities on the main technologies on the market, ranging from internal combustion engines to electric engines, focusing on new technological trends in driver assistance systems (ADAS) and infotelematic systems.
  • Hardware in the Loop: Kineton offers services with a view to configuring HiL (Hardware in the Loop) simulators for testing vehicle ECUs. Kineton resources are able to customize and update connections between ECUs and simulators in order to create the right test environment. Also very important is the development of simulation models to ensure that vehicle dynamics are respected. Our experience allows us to span multiple simulation systems providers such as dSPACE, Vector, National Instruments and Mathworks.

Key requirements:

  • Knowledge of electrical engineering, digital and analog electronics;
  • Knowledge of Electrical Machines and Automatic Controls;
  • Language knowledge: Matlab, Simulink, C/C++.

Will also be positively evaluated:

  • Strong orientation towards team working and good problem-solving skills;
  • Strong motivation;
  • Good knowledge of the English language;
