Ideally, you will currently be working as an engine test engineer, development engineer, performance engineer, project engineer similar on a variety of engine testing and emissions calibration programmes. You will have a sound knowledge of diesel and gasoline engine systems and be a strong communicator who can represent the company in front of major customers.
