We are looking for a Principal Engineer to join our Power systems team.
You will be responsible for taking new Propulsion systems and components from concept to flawless launch, as part of the overall process of integrating propulsion components into the machines, ensuring a robust system/component sign-off meeting all regulatory, quality, cost and timing requirements.
Overview of the role:
Lead integration projects for Propulsion to ensure delivery of high quality products in a timely manner. This will require some components to be developed from concept to delivery, while others will need to be packaged appropriately. From specification, through analysis, testing and development, to engineering sign-off, these projects will need to be supported technically, planned, and managed.
Create system and component specifications and design (cascaded from programme targets) – using/commissioning the relevant analysis tools to support data driven design decisions.
Develop system and component FMEAs, and DVPs.
Co-ordinate and supervise DVP tests/analyses (analytical, rig, engine and machine)
Resolve engineering issues using recognised methodologies
Write systems test and development technical reports for own responsible areas
Support programme gateways and reviews
Support engineering sign-off with robust test and validation data and technical reports
Provide clear communication and support to all customers, engineering teams and suppliers
Coordination with other functional areas, such as programme teams, purchasing, quality, other development teams
Monitor and report status to relevant parties
Highlight issues in a timely and appropriate manner
Work in a simultaneous engineering environment to support the development plan, ensuring design for manufacture and assembly.
Manage suppliers via the APQP process
Work with suppliers to deliver prototypes and PPAP parts to schedule, meeting quality and performance requirements
Communicate lessons learned; propose design guide/process updates.
Working level experience of 2d drawing and 3d modelling in Siemens/Unigraphics NX platform advantageous
Working level experience of PLM tool (e.g. Siemens Teamcentre) advantageous
Off Highway machine experience advantageous.
CAE experience especially in thermal management systems advantageous.
Experience dealing with UK and overseas design teams advantageous.
Being able to handle multiple projects simultaneously is also a key requirement
In addition to a passion for engineering, a proven track record of delivery, and a desire to be ‘hands-on’ with projects from concept to completion, the candidates will:
Have a degree in an associated mechanical engineering discipline, with a sound understanding of Mechanical Engineering principles (showing an attention to detail, and being data driven).
Have a sound grasp of the machine product development cycle, and expertise in propulsion system and component specification, design, development and sign-off (using relevant tools)
Ideally, have experience with an engine/machine/transmission manufacturer or Tier 1 supplier
Demonstrate good project and supplier management skills, and good commercial awareness
Be able to work well under pressure and to meet tight deadlines
Demonstrate an ability to communicate clearly and concisely at all levels
Show flexibility - the role requires travel to customer and supplier sites
