Cybersecurity SW Architect

Job Description

REQ ID: 112321
JOB TITLE: Cybersecurity SW Architect
SALARY: Competitive
LOCATION: Shannon, Ireland

Dreaming for tomorrow is about more than ideas and ambitions. We’re already building the next generation of vehicles, using repurposed and brand-new technology and techniques. We’re doing more than dream, we’re creating the future of mobility and automotive for years to come.

 

THE OPPORTUNITY

Innovative. Trusted. Pioneering. These three qualities have always summed up Jaguar Land Rover. They have been encapsulated within the performance, luxury and excellence of all our products. They are what every person working for us lives and breathes. From creating intelligent hybrids to building driverless vehicles, evolving existing technologies to discovering new energy storage, our ambition for the future of our vehicles and the industry beyond is endless.

 

WHAT TO EXPECT

The development of Autonomous, Connected and Electrified cars makes vehicle cyber security a critical role in JLR. We need skilled people who can understand and analyze the threats to the vehicle and derive solutions both on the car and within the connected infrastructure. This will allow us to protect the car and provide traceable evidence of our compliance with emerging cyber security standards.

 

As members of the JLR cyber security community we work on protecting the vehicle as a whole including its connections with the outside world. We work from design stage through to vehicle production including early system analysis & risk assessments, mitigation technologies where needed, hardware and software implementation and ultimately penetration test and system monitoring on an ongoing basis.

 

You will be fully involved in our next generation projects working in an Agile structure to make our systems comply with upcoming legislation such as UNECE 155. This work includes for example implementation of a new Vehicle Key Management System applicable to all ECUs across the entire vehicle and Secure Diagnostics that will help to protect the vehicle against unauthorized access both physical and remote.

 

Our work also allows us to engage with leading silicon vendors to select the best SoC platforms that can support our next generation strategies, specifying and choosing the right partners for our software stacks regarding security mechanisms and working with multiple feature/product teams in order to define the best solutions for secure communication for both on-board and off-board
