Senior/Expert Android Systems Engineer (all genders) - Berlin

Reference: 577973
Your Mission
We are working on the next step in the evolution of the human-machine-interface between a Mercedes and its passengers. We combine the ease of use, the safety and the durability of the existing infotainment system, MBUX, with the flexibility of a whole portfolio of top tier third party applications. Many of which you and our customers will already know and love from your own devices.

You will become part of the team that creates the technological platform to enable all of that, while connecting the dots between engineering, business and delivery to bring the 'Best or nothing' Portfolio to ensure the maximum direct impact of each developer to those who matter the most to us: Our customers.
As a team we cover many of the use cases a modern infotainment system has to offer. Some examples would be the translation of a Binder API to a D-Bus service, the adaption of our Hardware Abstraction Layer, the E2E engineering of an entirely new system service to handle say contact integration, creating speech use cases, handling app intents and so on.

If you want to become part of an international and multi-cultural team with a 'best-or-nothing' mindset, can drive even complex topics independently and responsibly and coordinate small sub-teams (~3 people) then we would love to get to know you!
