Job Description

CAE Engineer
Commutable from; Dunton, Basildon, Chelmsford, Southend-on-Sea, Cheshunt, Dartford.
Salary from; £30,000 - £40,000 + Benefits

With the automotive world becoming ever-more connected, the need for access to real-time data is giving certain companies a competitive edge over others in terms of driving behaviour, fuel economy, emissions and gear usage. With the right data infrastructure in place, companies can receive this data from tens-of-thousands of cars every second, which then provides the company with insight in to engineering the future. This is exactly what this company is doing at the moment and are using this data to support their OEM customers in the development of future powertrain systems.

As a CAE Engineer you will be working on their customer's powertrain programmes providing insight in to the behaviour of different models. This may include analysing the data of engine operating points, gear-changing, fuel economy, emissions and developing models to validate real-life data and define the technologies of the future. You will be responsible for providing full-lifecycle support from supporting the development of customer requirements to presenting your findings to senior management and in turn back to the customer.

Ideally, you will currently be working within a consultancy environment on current and future engine/powertrain modelling programmes and be a competent user of industry standard software tools such as Simulink, Dymola etc. Preferably you will be working within an automotive environment however off-highway, power generation, trucks and bus industries will also be considered.


- Ideally degree qualified in an engineering/science discipline, either mechanical, automotive or physics.
- Ideally a background working within the automotive industry - this would put you at a distinct advantage.
- Ideally a background in modelling one or all of the following; emissions, fuel economy, gear-usage, engine operating points within conventional or hybrid powertrains.
- A strong mathematically-minded individual who can create models/back their ideas up with statistics.
- Solid scripting skills with MatLab.
- Strong usage of industry modelling tools such as Dymola, Simulink or similar.
- A strong communicator, presenter, time manager and organiser.
