Discover Lucia’s job, Software Engineer @Valeo – Episode 1


Hello everyone, I’m Lucia Chavarria
Would you like to hear about my integration here?
To be honest I was a little bit nervous at the beginning
because it’s my very first job.
Here’s my Software project Manager, William!
Lucia’s new in the team, but she rocks!
A very good recruit
Let’s go follow me!
We are here at Valeo Comfort
and Driving Assistance Business Group.
This is an R&D Center that is working on the connected
and autonomous vehicle of the future.
As you can hear from my accent,
French is not my native language.
Actually, I am Venezuelan
and working on a totally French environment
can be a little bit overwhelming sometimes.
However, je parle quand même pas mal le français !
Impressionnant non ?
Follow me guys, I will show you my work space.
When I arrived, I was a bit lost
because I discovered for the first time
the automotive industry.
You cannot imagine how many innovative
and powerful technologies are
nowadays in your cars.
Thanks to my colleagues,
I was quickly put at ease!
Especially because I got answers
to every question I had.
And today, 3 months after
I could not be happier:
I’ve learned a lot, I’ve discovered
so many new technologies,
like for example QT for our software developments,
and so on… I guess it’s time
to tell you more about my job.
I am in charge of the development of a new application
to assist drivers in their cars.
For example I develop augmented reality features
that will helps the driver to anticipate
and see the dangers on the road.
You know, like alerts for crossing pedestrians
when it’s too foggy or rainy.
I also work on a new project,
based on multiple displays.
I develop a new generation of graphical user interface
that you will find in this kind of dashboard
You know, Lucia’s right,
we work on breakthrough innovations at Valeo.
Our goal is to continuously improve
the driving experience in the car.
And to reach this goal, we try to anticipate
and bring new solutions
that will match any drivers need.
Wow, what a challenge!
But you know?
Challenge accepted!
Sorry guys, we are running out of time now.
In the next episode,
I will show you my latest developments,
right in the test car.
And trust me it’s well worth the detour!
Thanks for watching and see you very soon.
Bye Bye
