About u-blox u-blox (SIX:UBXN) is a global provider of leading positioning and wireless communication technologies for the automotive, industrial, and consumer markets. Our solutions let people, vehicles, and machines determine their precise position and communicate wirelessly over cellular and short range networks. With a broad portfolio of chips, modules, and a growing ecosystem of product supporting data services, u-blox is uniquely positioned to empower its customers to develop innovative solutions for the Internet of Things, quickly and cost-effectively. With headquarters in Thalwil, Switzerland, the company is globally present with offices in Europe, Asia, and the USA.
u-blox continues to expand its efforts in positioning technology with a focus on building positioning products for safety-critical applications such as autonomous road and airborne vehicle control and navigation. The Positioning Product Center is charged with ensuring that u-blox positioning products not only remain at the forefront of positioning technologies, but also becomes a key player within safety-critical systems like autonomous vehicles. As a new and fast-growing team within this organization, we are applying our best research and engineering capabilities to new products for which not only positioning performance matters, but also integrity and safety. While satellite-based positioning technology is widely accepted and integrated within safety-relevant functions in aviation, we are also starting to assign them safety-critical tasks within future mass-market applications such as highly-automated and autonomous vehicle control. Our vision is to develop a positioning technology that is so reliable, accurate, and easy to integrate, that it will become a key player within systems requiring high-accuracy, integrity, and safety. Our positioning technology integrates GNSS satellite signals with sensors from the vehicle by means of sophisticated hardware and software. If you are looking to join a team that is building cutting-edge technology that will shape the future of autonomous vehicle control and navigation, this may be the opportunity you’re looking for. We are looking for a passionate Systems Engineer who is a quick learner, enthusiastic about safety-critical systems, and eager to contribute in building our new team. The role is located in Tampere or Espoo. There will be regular travel to other sites within Europe.
