Company presentation:

A human company

The challenge and the drive to succeed often put aside the human dimension of a company. At KLANIK, we have a different vision. A challenge is a means to succeed, but in order to face such a challenge, personnal and professionnal levers need to be set up. Our philosphy is quite simple : having our co-workers  at the center of the decision process will allow the company to grow.

An innovative business model

Klanik is based on the well-being and the self realization of its co-workers. We’ve put different programs in place in order to enable our consultants to be fulfilled  and to step in the company. They become the stakeholders and builders of Klanik’s development and success.

Meritocracy, innovation, creativity, passion and excellence are the keywords and values that we share with our co-workers. We consequently base our recruitments on the personality and the potential of our consultants so that they meet the expectations of our added-value projects.

Job description:

The engineer is coached to develop and test embedded software for controllers used within driveline systems to control transmissions, axle related functions and /or to create functions and features on the vehicle.
The coordinator for software development or a more experienced software developer has translated the customer requirements for the embedded software into a systems solution.
By using a step-by-step plan, the algorithms in the embedded software can be realized by project and process management.
The developed software is tested by the engineer through unit, MIL & SIL testing first, then on a simulator and/or test rig and finally on the vehicle based on a defined test strategy and derived test plan.
The test results obtained by the engineer and the documentation are discussed with the coordinator for software development.
The progress during the development and testing is regularly reported to and discussed with the coordinator for software development.
The engineer has to cooperate in a multidisciplinary team working on a systems solution. To realize his duties the engineer has to cooperate with other disciplines (engineering of mechanics, valve, transmission, axle, PC-tools and electronics hardware, supplier of driveline components, …)
After finalizing the training and coaching by more experienced developers and based on the progress and growth made by the engineer, the engineer will be able to work in a delegated way within the global team, respecting the rules and procedures used within the team.
After some time he will be able to discuss with the internal/external customers about the requirements that are reflected into a design book to realize the embedded software.
The engineer develops & test in the lab of the development center followed by testing at the customer site, in order to release the developed software for production.
