Tundra Technical Solutions: Automated Train Operation System Design Expert

Tundra Technical Solutions

This is a Full-time position in Laval, QC posted February 16, 2021.

JOB SUMMARYThe role of Expert Automated Train Operation System Design is to ensure production of detailed functional design for solution subsystem components, whether based on a packaged solution or on custom development.

This involves working with Product Management, Architecture and end users to understand the End-to-End Architecture and requirements and flesh out a detailed system design for the specific component or area of expertise.

This includes defining subsystem architecture and detailed functional level design and development plan as well being the overall owner of the conceptual subsystem solution during the development, testing, and integration stage.

Another key responsibility is to work in close partnership with the Technical Delivery lead to provide clear and exact impact assessments in the initial phase of the development process.Additional responsibilities include supporting designers, developers and integrators during the full design and test cycle.MAIN RESPONSABILITIESSystem Design (65%)Analyze overall system issues and/or business requirements to design effective, high-availability, business-critical solutionsUnderstand high-level proposed architecture and transpose it into subsystem designs that will meet all functional and non-functional requirements.

The developed designs will then be elaborated by the design and development resources.Create standards and best practices that ensure the systems design is maintainable, sustainable and properly documented with all the associated IP constructsCreate standards and best practices that ensure reliability, safety and cybersecurity standards are imbedded in the design of the sub systemsWork with Manager to define domain best practices and standards for the System DesignersUnderstand Rail subsystems Architecture in order to develop Specifications on technical Design aspects (Hardware & Software integration)Design and propose enhancements and modifications to the subsystem architectureWhen called upon, will be required to work with FRA and personnel in the various regulatory inspections to ensure all requirements are properly designedBe a champion to the systems designers on adoption of proper detailed development and designsWork with Manager to drive best practices and a practice based approach towards system designDelivery & Quality (35%)Conduct impact assessments for proposed architecture to help with delivery strategyProvide, or verify, work estimates.

Evaluate/assess upgrades, priorities and criticality.Define deployment plan and support Q& A and Integration Engineers from a technical subsystem product owner perspectiveEnsure compliance with and oversee development, and execution of testing strategies, test plans, and test procedures to validate that the system correctly implements the specificationsWork with Manager and technical leads to help plan the releaseWork with Quality leads, Management, and QA to constantly monitor quality KPI’s and implement design improvementsBe the technical lead and technical authority throughout the delivery and lifecycle of the solutionORGANIZATIONAL IMPACTDecision Making & ImpactsPlan Strategic Subsystem Design and define best practices and development patterns for the solutionDirect impact on the quality of the Solution Design and standards used to deliverDirect impact on product delivery schedule based on adherence to estimates and duration committedLevel of Interaction/InfluenceDrive the alignment of Solution Architecture and Sub System DesignWork with Architecture, Product Management and End users to fully design best in class solutionsBe the technical lead and authority for the technical resources in the teamEmployee Supervised/Org.
