WHAT TO EXPECT
Using state-of-the-art facilities, you’ll provide the power behind our vehicles working in our Powertrain Engineering team. You'll find the ideal balance between performance and sustainability, while responding to the environmental issues that shape our industry.
The Power Supply Systems team designs control systems for several distinct vehicle types, including plug-in hybrid and full electrical derivatives. Working as the Power Supply Lead Engineer, you’ll maintain responsibility over the Power Supply Control System implementation at platform level, and work with several interfacing areas to deliver appropriate functionality to meet the many needs of vehicle features, with quality at the forefront of delivery. This means working with the Power Supply Systems Definition and Software Groups, ensuring the requirements and test cases are sufficiently defined to deliver Right First Time, every time. You’ll liaise with other departments within Powertrain and Electrical Engineering to ensure we are able to make strategic decisions that are effective and robust for all platforms.
You’ll have responsibility at platform level for the verification of appropriate Power Supply System solutions, including agreeing requirements for control strategies and software, and ensuring robust handover with other groups. In addition you’ll regularly liaise with the engineers responsible for various electrical systems, to ensure robust design of control systems, and you’ll also be in contact with other functional areas in understanding power requirements, with subsequent data analysis ensuring Power Supply robustness.
Day-to-day you’ll have key interactions with the Power Supply Technical Specialist, Power Supply & Energy Storage Group Leaders, and Power Supply Architecture Module Leaders.
WHAT YOU’LL NEED
You’ll need experience and application of using industry standard system modelling toolsets (for example MATLAB or Simulink), as well as the application of the engineering delivery process, from capturing requirements through to validated functionality. A relevant degree or equivalent experience is preferred.
Bring all this to the home of premium innovation, and you’ll find the opportunities to further your career with a world-class team, a discounted car purchase and lease scheme for you and your family, membership of a competitive pension plan and performance related bonus scheme. All this and more makes Jaguar Land Rover the perfect place to continue your journey. This role is also eligible for other additional allowances to base salary.
