    CTO Blog: Why a Half-Second Makes All the Difference

    My three boys have two athletic passions: golf and tennis (Fortnite doesn't count, although it appears to involve a lot of jumping and shouting). Tennis is an amazing sport and it's so much fun watching them develop and improve their skills and reaction time. This is never more true than with the service return.

Aptiv – Why Work For Us?

Aptiv is a global technology company that develops safer, greener and more connected solutions enabling the future of mobility.

We’re actively searching for candidates with the skills, imagination and passion to see game-changing ideas through. We currently have outstanding opportunities for those interested in transforming the future of mobility – starting now.

Our path to becoming mobility's leading software and systems technologies integrator began years ago. And today, we continue positioning ourselves as uniquely capable of bringing together everything that the future of mobility requires. 

Key milestones

April 2015: First coast-to-coast autonomous drive
Our team and technology helped complete the longest automated vehicle drive ever – traveling nearly 3,400 miles from San Francisco to New York City, with 99 percent of the drive in fully automated mode. The vehicle successfully navigated through complex driving situations collecting data essential to advancing the emerging active safety technology sector. 

August 2016: Singapore AMoD pilot program
Our company was selected by the Singapore Land Transport Authority to help implement a cloud-based mobility-on-demand transport concept. Providing a fleet of fully autonomous vehicles, we opened new business opportunities for existing and potential customers in mobility and connectivity, logistics, agriculture and mining. This was the beginning of three-year pilot program, with a target for fully operational service in 2022. 

January 2017: Movimento acquisition
The future of mobility is connected, and software plays a critical role in modern vehicles. The acquisition of Movimento – a company specializing in secure, seamless, over-the-air software updates – further strengthens our ability to deliver and support the systems of the future. This includes active safety, automated driving and automated mobility-on-demand capabilities. 

October 2017: NuTonomy acquisition
The first large-scale opportunity to make Level 4 self-driving vehicles a reality is expected to come through ride-hailing fleets. We acquired NuTonomy – a software startup developing vehicle-to-passenger information systems for robo-taxi service – to accelerate road-testing and add even more expertise to our R&D team.

December 2017: Aptiv PLC to Transform Future Mobility
Formerly known as Delphi Automotive, Aptiv emerges from the completion of Delphi’s spin-off of its Powertrain segment. Aptiv brings unparalleled capabilities in solving the complex challenges associated with safer, greener and more connected transportation. At the core of this capability is the software and vehicle architecture expertise that enables the advanced safety, automated driving, user experience, and connected services that are making the future of mobility work.


We’re at the forefront of solving mobility’s toughest challenges. We have the people, experience, know-how and confidence to turn ideas into solutions. Solutions that move our world from what’s now to what’s next while connecting us like never before.

New mobility technology

Our fully connected software platform is enabling us to drive mobility forward – advancing everything from automated/autonomous driving to active safety and from infotainment to vehicle connectivity. Today, we’re delivering solutions for automated/autonomous driving and automated mobility on demand that are not only effective but also cost-efficient. And by leveraging the power of artificial intelligence, we’re learning new ways to make tomorrow’s mobility safer, better and more human every day.

Consider our Centralized Sensing Localization Planning (CSLP) platform. It’s revolutionizing how we see the world around us – combining the input of:

  • Radar that isn’t impacted by weather
  • LiDAR that provides range and distance info
  • Vision (cameras) that classifies objects 

Smart Architecture

With the next level of automated/autonomous driving (L4/5 AD) will come more and more software-enabled features – which will demand even greater computing power and high-speed data transmission. We are leading the way in providing constantly upgradeable high-speed sensing and networking systems in vehicles, in near real time, enabling everything from sensors and cameras to radar and engine controls with our proven expertise in:

  • Power and signal distribution       
  • Over-the-air (OTA) data exchange       
  • Vehicle connectivity     
  • Sensor technologies

Smart cars / Smart cities

We are looking beyond connected cars and self-driving vehicles and toward a world in which vehicles are like super computers – capable of gathering, analyzing, interpreting, integrating and sharing vast amounts of data to make mobility better than ever. It’s a world where sensors communicate with vehicles, where vehicles communicate with one another and where they also communicate seamlessly with the environment around them and the cities they navigate through.

We’re providing the advanced architecture and centralized computing power that makes all this possible, that can accommodate the infotainment needs of today and the add-ons of tomorrow. Essentially, we’re enabling a connected mobility ecosystem and ensuring secure data flow between vehicles, infrastructure and the Cloud.

Aptiv offers the unique opportunity to transform the future of mobility and to be a global leader in an industry that’s changing the world. To us, nothing is impossible when you have the people with the passion to make anything possible. 

At Aptiv, our ideas inspire change. Our actions produce change. We make safe possible. We make green possible. We make connected possible. We deliver a better today and promise a better tomorrow. Beyond the tangible benefits of working with us, look forward to gaining and employing values that will last a lifetime.

Transform the future

We envision a world with zero fatalities, zero injuries and zero accidents. The convergence of technology and mobility will transform our world, not in some vague future, but in a matter of years. Here you will shape the future of mobility.

Be a global leader

At Aptiv, you’ll work for a company that doesn’t aim for global reach but for global leadership. As an employee, you’ll be encouraged to think in new ways. And motivated to solve the toughest challenges through innovation, collaboration and excellence.

Change the world

We roll up our sleeves, take on challenges and get things done. Experimenting, testing and growing together. As dreamers, we imagine the possibilities. As doers, we create technologies. Through global collaboration, we advance mobility, save lives and improve our planet.

    Tons of opportunities to demonstrate your worth and step up to the plate. Expansion of bigger city (Boston and Pittsburgh) offices will attract much better tech talent.


    Masters or PhD required to work on certain teams.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Pittsburgh, PA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Aptiv (Pittsburgh, PA) in June 2018.


    I was reached out by their recruiter on linkedin. I have to say, this is by far the most pleasant interview process I have ever experienced. The recruiter, Erin Wren, is really prompt in communication. It took only two days from the first phone call and the first technical screen. And another couple days to an online coding test. Then another week to on-site and offer. I have to give huge credit to Erin as she responds email in 15mins whenever I had the questions. And the effort she spent in between communicating to hiring manager is tremendous and effective.
        All the on-site interviewers are friendly and knows that they are doing. The hiring manager is focused on building culture of openness and encouraging collaboration. This really impresses me.
