- Our Client is currently seeking a Senior Powertrain Calibration Engineer with an initial focus on heavy-duty and off-highway internal combustion engine platforms.
- You will join the Calibration team with the primary objective to work closely with our customers to develop, test and optimise the performance of their future engine and vehicle programs.
- You can expect a significant emphasis on ensuring that the calibration of the vehicle meets both legislative and customer specific engine-out and tailpipe emissions targets.
- Furthermore, you will be expected to take responsibility for planning and executing test work on engine, virtual, and powertrain testbeds or in-vehicle, providing clear and concise data analysis and reporting/recommendations to customer teams.
- When required by the customer, calibration engineers are expected to participate in vehicle development test trips that may involve world-wide travel.
- Our engineers are typically exposed to multiple different projects during their career working with us, including increasing opportunities in the field of electrified powertrains and virtualised development.
- The role is therefore particularly suited to people who will enjoy the opportunity to gain experience in new areas and who can rapidly self-start, combining a pro-active attitude, excellent analytical problem-solving skills and an outstanding technical engineering background

- Develop and manage new powertrain calibrations using Client/Customer calibration tools and processes
