We have great opportunities now available for Principal Design / System Engineers in our Propulsion Applications & Integration team
As a result of growing demands for our award winning range of diesel, electric vehicles and the new exciting Hydrogen engine development programmes, we are seeking Principal Design / System Engineers. The post will suit an individual looking for an opportunity to develop their career within a fast paced organisation at the cutting edge of off highway vehicle design and development.
The Applications & Integration team are responsible for;
" Selecting suitable powertrain components to develop a propulsion system to meet the machine & territory requirements using
o Diesel, Electric, Hydrogen or Hybrid Systems
o CVT, Hydrostatic, Electric or Powershift Transmissions & Axles
" The design, specification, validation & delivery of the following systems & sub components;
o Under bonnet thermal management systems (Cooling pack including fan drive system)
o Induction / filtration systems
o Fuel System
o Exhaust / Aftertreatment System
o Associated Mounting / interfacing systems
o Braking Systems
As a principal systems engineer you will be responsible for all stages of development from concept to flawless launch, meeting all regulatory, quality, cost and timing requirements. You'll lead a team of engineers, ensuring they deliver the work programme from specification through analysis, testing and development, to your final sign-off, as well as supporting in-house quality and manufacturing service teams to resolve complex technical issues. The applicant should ideally have an extensive working knowledge of powertrain systems in either on or off highway vehicles / machinery as well as a good base engineering experience in fabrications, mouldings etc.
Your Responsibilities as a Principal engineer:
" Lead a team of engineers (UK based + India design team) throughout the product development cycle
" Simultaneously championing multiple projects and ensuring they meet project deliverables
" Coordination with other functional areas, such as programme teams, purchasing, quality, other development teams including reporting to senior management / directors
" Develop design briefs / design concepts - solutions / validations plans & delivery plans
" Generate project timing plans, technical requirements, budgets etc.
" Support engineering sign-off requirements / fit for purpose sign off for all propulsion systems and components with the use of DFMEA's, DVP's etc.
" Support reviews & generate documentation to prove the machine meets the latest legislation requirements.
" Support the creation of system and component specifications and design (cascaded from programme targets) - using/commissioning the relevant analysis tools to support data driven design decisions
" Resolve engineering issues using recognised methodologies.
" Reviewing CAE results & calculations to simulate machine performance / life prior to validation testing phase.
" Develop design standards & test procedures, rig operation, test equipment etc.
" Supporting continuous improvement initiatives including cost reduction and quality improvements
The ideal candidate will:
" Have a positive can do attitude and ability to drive projects forward - a sense of urgency
" Have an excellent understanding of powertrain system / architecture.
" 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).
" Demonstrates and has whole machine / system knowledge. Has ability (not just technical) to advise and influence other engineers though knowledge and expertise.
" Be able to work to deadlines and deliver on time
" Capable of presenting to in a confident effective manner
" Have a desire to invent the future and lead rather than follow.
" Technical coaching and mentoring for junior team members to aid their technical development and future growth
" Ability to problem solve and analyse failures
