Position: Senior Director, Autonomous Drive Practice at Luxoft Automotive
Dr. Marek Jersak received his Diploma in Electrical Engineering from Aachen University of Technology, Germany in 1997. From 1997 to 1999 he worked as a compiler design engineer for Conexant Systems in Newport Beach, California. He returned to school in 1999 and graduated with a PhD in Real-Time Embedded System Design from the Technical University of Braunschweig, Germany in 2004. Together with his university fellow Kai Richter, in 2005 Marek co-founded Symtavision GmbH in Braunschweig, and in 2013 Symtavision Inc in Michigan, serving as Managing Director respectively President for those companies. Symtavision became a globally recognized leader in Timing Analysis tools and architecture consulting for automotive real- time systems with a focus on chassis, active safety, powertrain, body-control and in-vehicle networking. In February 2016, Marek and Kai sold Symtavision to Luxoft. Marek became director of the newly formed ‘Under the Hood’ practice inside Luxoft Automotive. The practice grew to more than 200 engineers in 1.5 years. At the end of 2017, we repositioned the practice to focus fully on various levels of automated driving, from Level-2 / 3 mass-production ADAS software to architectures and algorithms for Level-4 and ultimately Level-5 autonomous driving. Marek is now fully focused on building the teams, customer relationships and engagement models that enable a seamless, scalable and agile solutions offering from sensors to actuators, spanning co-development with our customers of system and software architectures, algorithms, automotive-grade software, integration, and testing.
