Job Location: Cambridgeshire
Job Position: Senior Diesel Engine Calibration Engineer
Job Status: Contract
Job Description: The company is a major manufacturer of heavy duty off-highway diesel engines for the construction, industrial and power generation sectors.
Development of world class engine systems is our passion. With the increasing expectations of engine performance, new opportunities to integrate engine - machine systems, increasing focus on emissions, and need for continuous improvement to remain the best, we have the growth opportunity for experienced and aspiring engineers to join our team.
We're looking for Senior Diesel Calibration Engineers to directly influence the performance of our 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 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 developmentDiesel engine core performance and emissionsDiesel engine aftertreatment specification and performanceProduct validation planning and executionProduct technical issue root cause and resolution, including 6Sigma
