[Role and Responsibility]

•Lead Virtual Simulation Environment development activities to be provided to automotive OEM/Tier1 customers as technical key persion. 
•Plan product development with stakeholders: Sales/Marketing/hardware Design/Quality by considering automotive market dynamics and and execute in a timely manner.
•Lead adoption of up-to-date technologies and product improvements、based on researching technologies of Virtualization, Modeling, Simulation, Digital Twin, MBD/MBSE, PLM, …
•Verification and optimization of virtual simulation environments based on application point of view.
•Lead external engagements with EDA vendors, IP and technology suppliers
•Lead OEMs/Tier1 customer engagements including support and training for internal teams (FAEs/Apps/Sales)



In the era of ‘software defined vehicles’ Renesas is offering R-Car SoCs family to support high-performance compute demands of ADAS, Infotainment and Gateway applications. With the evolution of autonomous driving and digital transformation (DX), software in the automotive industry is becoming increasingly important; software can exceed 50 million lines or more in each vehicle. Renesas mission is to provide not only semiconductor products but also software development environment and tools to support our customers' product development.

Our team is innovating system simulators offerings for SILS/SPILS to enable shift-left on software development, for example a virtual simulator of SoCs and MCUs enables software engineers to start development of programs for ECUs / vehicles before chips are ready. Renesas believes that it is important for our business to break away from the conventional concept of in-vehicle embedded software development and propose / implement Virtual Simulation Environment that contributes to realize DX of vehicle development. 

Renesas is looking for colleagues who are willing to take on this challenge with us.
