Excellent opportunity for a Design Engineer to join a rapidly growing automotive aftermarket pioneer who specialise in delivering switchable performance re-map software to vehicle Engine Control Units (ECU). My client has global reach, with distribution in over 40 countries with an authorised network of over 400 Authorised Dealers and Performance Centres. You would be joining a talented and award winning team of over 40 experienced automotive engineers, technicians, designers, electronics specialists and technical support experts.
