Job Description For Vacancy No: 238420T

Consultant: Tim Bees

Job Location: Cambridgeshire

Job Position: Senior Engine Systems Engineer

Job Status: Permanent

Job Description: We have an exciting opportunity relating to the development and validation of solutions to current product engine system issues. Engine emissions regulation, continually increasing expectations for engine performance, opportunities to integrate engine and machine systems all drive the need for continuous development of current and future products.

We are now looking for a Senior Engineer aspiring to directly influence and validate the quality of current and future technologies, have the opportunity to play a key role within a world class engineering organisation as well as develop individual engineering competency.

We have an exciting new role within the Systems Validation team which is a new team within the Performance Systems Integration Team offering an exciting opportunity to develop and validate innovative solutions to issues found on our current product 4 and 6 cylinder global engine platforms for a wide variety of machine applications. This is a dynamic stimulating team which not only develops and validates solutions to current product issues but also provides (engine and aftertreatment) system level validation for our future engines from the early development stages through to final production.

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 this job will be perfect for you.

You will have some level of experience in one of the five following areas and be willing to learn and develop across our other areas of focus:

Diesel engine core performance and emissionsDiesel engine aftertreatment specification and performanceProduct validation planning and executionProduct controls software developmentProduct technical issue root cause and resolution, including 6Sigma
