Full Time

Our client, a major manufacturer based in Peterborough with a globally recognised brand, has just made available an initial 12 month contract opportunity for a Senior Engine Systems Engineer to join their Performance Systems Integration team.

Our client is looking for a Senior Engine Systems Engineer to directly influence the performance of our client's next generation engines through a system level approach, pulling together technology selection, control system development, optimisation and aftertreatment performance. The role will be based within the Performance Systems Integration team, focusing on the development of 4 and 6-cylinder global engine platforms for a wide variety of applications.

If you enjoy solving complex engineering problems with limited information, with a drive to create and validate new innovative solutions to current product issues and future generations of engines methods and processes to mould the next generation of power train performance, this job will be perfect for you.

Due to breadth of the role you will require experience in at least one of the following five areas with a desire to learn and develop experience across the other areas of focus:

  • Product controls software development
  • Diesel engine core performance and emissions
  • Diesel engine aftertreatment specification and performance
  • Product validation planning and execution
  • Product controls software development
  • Product technical issue root cause and resolution, including 6Sigma

Key Responsibilities of the Senior Engine Systems Engineer

  • Engine / Powertrain performance requirements definition
  • Definition and development of new engine electronic control systems in partnership with our client's engine software development team
  • Accountable for delivery of engine calibrations through our client's Global Engine Development engine calibration teams
  • Engine / Powertrain performance validation in real world customer applications
  • Detailed data analysis / review of engine and aftertreatment calibrations with the accountability for approval for production
  • In-field pilot fleet machine telematic data analysis for issue identification, root cause and resolution
  • Communication with engineering and product groups across the business

Qualifications and Experience required for the Senior Engine Systems Engineer role


  • Bachelors or Master's degree in Engineering
  • Self-starter with the ability to work with minimal instruction and provide technical support to others
  • Experience of complex Electronics and Controls system concept generation including drafting block diagram controls for simulation assessment
  • Extensive understanding of control algorithms and logic
  • Experience of modelling complex systems, and the use of simulation tools to make confident predictions
  • Knowledge of internal combustion engines
  • Ability to communicate technical information effectively at all levels of the business


  • Knowledge of heavy duty machine applications
  • 6 sigma experience (Black belt preferable, Green Belt minimum)
  • Product validation (FMEA, DVP&R, Data analysis)
  • Product sign-off and report documentation
  • Extensive knowledge mathematics, data analysis, numerical modelling and statistics
  • Experience of design of experiments, optimisation techniques and Robust engineering methods
  • Experience of Matlab and Simulink
  • Product validation (FMEA, DVP&R, Data analysis)
  • Experience of Vector CANape, AVL CAMEO, NI DIAdem, Stat Ease DX9, MiniTab, or other similar calibration, optimisation and statistics tools
  • Ability to generate calibration requirements and constraints, including hardware limit definition, tailpipe emissions, transient response, fuel consumption, drivability, and other customer demands
  • Project management experience of multi-functional teams to hit software delivery dates
  • Resolution of engine performance issues and complex engineering problems with rigor and urgency

To apply, please send us a copy of your up to date CV clearly indicating your relevant experience. Candidates must have an existing right to work in the UK and evidence of eligibility will be required. Suitable candidates will be contacted immediately.
