Working at Lightyear is a unique experience. You get the opportunity to work for a company with a pure and meaningful mission. A mission that will make a positive and lasting impact on future generations. 

What will you do as Functional Safety Engineer?

At Lightyear we have several domains which are basically teams within a particular field of expertise. As a functional safety engineer you’re part of the safety domain in the engineering department. Your work comprises the entire safety lifecycle from concept phase to end of life.

You start your day with a stand-up with your multidisciplinary project team that develops one of the systems of our vehicle. You prepare an instruction for them how to review the HARA. You perform an FTA on one of the safety goals you defined earlier and discuss it with e.g. the system architect and another functional safety engineer.For another system you define tests to verify the safety concepts that you implemented before.

On Friday you support the project manager with defining the functional safety activities that need to be performed in the next sprints, you present the results from this sprint in the sprint review and finish your work week with some drinks together with our great colleagues in the (temporarily online) Friday afternoon drink. Your job will focus on the following aspects: 

  • Collaborate with internal and external stakeholders (e.g. our engineering & procurement team and suppliers) to ensure that the system you work on is functionally safe and complies with the ISO 26262 series of standards and other relevant standards
  • Compile item definitions including obtaining and combining system architectures
