[Background of Recruitment]

In line with the CASE+E trend, further expansion of digital, analog, and power semiconductors for automotive applications is expected in the future,

and there is an increasing demand for high value-added and differentiated kit solutions that combine digital products such as MCUs and SOCs with

analog and power products.

We have already started development and release of Winning Combination as a kit solution, but in order to further accelerate and expand product sales,

we need to keep staff engineers who can plan and develop reference designs (H/W, S/W).



To expand sales of automotive semiconductor products, we are advancing the development of reference designs for automotive systems (H/W, S/W) that

combine digital products (SOC, MCU), analog products (PMIC, sensors, pre-drivers, etc.) and power products (IGBT, MOSFET, etc.). In particular, you will

promote the planning and development of reference designs for new systems in response to changes in xEV, ADAS/auto-driving, and EE architectures.

- Planning and development of automotive system reference designs (H/W, S/W)

- Lead the development of in-vehicle system reference design (H/W, S/W)

- Provide technical support to customers regarding the above reference designs.


[Required Skills and Work Experience]


- Experience in system development (H/W, S/W) in the automotive, industrial and consumer equipment fields (3+ years)

- Knowledge of electrical circuits (digital and analog) and ICs/semiconductors

- Excellent communication and presentation skills

- Teamwork and leadership in a global organization

- Experience in collaboration with customers and partners

- Ability to identify and solve problems


- Experience in BMS and DC/DC converter development (H/W, S/W) in the automotive, industrial and consumer electronics fields

- Experience in ISO 26262 Part 3 and 4 level development

- Project management experience in automotive, industrial and consumer electronics development.

- Marketing or FAE experience in the automotive field.
