So about the job.....

If you have a passion for seeing your creations come to life then Xtrac may have the right opportunity for you, as we are looking for talented Design Engineers to join our busy team.

Working within small cohesive teams on challenging projects in a fast moving environment. You will be responsible for the design and detail of gearbox components and complete transmission systems, using the Unigraphics 3D CAD system, which you will see move from design to the race track!
