[Background of Recruitment]

The value of vehicles is shifting from the traditional "Running, Turning and Stopping" to the value created by Software,

such as "Automated driving and Connected". We at Renesas need to change from being just a device vendor to a solution

vendor that works closely with customers and partners to provide applications, SW and development environments.

Renesas' Automotive Software Development Division is a group that creates new solutions for cars and mobility through

innovative SW and development environments that pursue the intrinsic value of things. In order to quickly take on the

necessary challenges to reach our goals, we have a great group of colleagues and an environment globally where individual

abilities and ideas are respected and open feedback is actively exchanged.

Instead of people who produce results under the constraints of customer requirements, Hardware/Silicon performance, etc.,

the future demands people who can freely create new values for vehicles and mobility, and define and realise systems and

architectures for customer products and services.
