C++ Software Engineer for Audio (all genders)

Reference: MB180

MBition, Mercedes–Benz is bringing the automotive industry into the future. How?

We are building a new generation of infotainment platform that is reusable and hardware agnostic, as well as its implementation into our actual car lines. We are building the very interface that future drivers will engage with when they sit in their car, plan their journey or choose what music to listen to.

We would like to extend our current team with enthusiastic, friendly and driven individuals to help build this state of the art software that pushes our innovation further.

We are doing this in Berlin, the Silicon Valley of Europe, as a 100% subsidiary of Mercedes-Benz AG that has been perfecting the art of moving people, products and services from point A to point B, for more than 120 years.

With an international team of 200 Employees, we are looking to integrate people who value quality, creativity and teamwork as much as we do. Together we create passionate technology on exciting topics that include: navigation, infotainment systems, location-based services, user experience and user interaction. And we need YOU to help us, in shaping the future!

 

About the role

In the Audio Team we build the abstraction layer between the audio hardware and the applications. Our goal is to build modern C++ audio APIs that are easy for application developers to integrate, while hiding away complexity imposed by strong real-time requirements, complex audio routing, policy management and prioritization.

As a Software Engineer (m/w/x) in an agile team you will be responsible for defining, extending and maintaining these audio APIs. You will develop new features as well as design, document, implement, integrate and test your code. Together with your team members you will contribute to the technical roadmap in order to continuously improve the APIs and provide guidance to engineers from other departments on how to integrate these.
