When our founder Bruce McLaren passed away at the age of 32 he left behind a legacy that has shaped who we are today. We have an unrivalled heritage which has its roots in racing; but McLaren Automotive is now creating a story of its own and we want you to be a part of it.

For the next 6 years as part of McLaren?s Track 22 plan, we are looking to invest £1 billion into Research and Development, leading to the launch of 15 all-new cars or derivatives during this period.

As an On-Board Diagnostics (OBD) Calibration Engineer, you will be part of a small team who are responsible for the development, validation and certification of powertrain control system OBD functionality to meet World-Wide legislated standards and requirements for all our exciting vehicles.

You will be involved in all aspects of OBD for the many interesting projects we have in the pipeline, from software specification and review, through robust implementation, to preparation and submission of certification documentation.
As part of this role you will travel overseas to support development, climatic testing and certification activities.

Requirements:
