WHAT TO EXPECT
As a Lead Engineer (Physical Methodologies) you will be developing and delivering a comprehensive and aligned strategy for the Calibration and Controls department, this role will work on best practices, methods, standards, processes, people and organisation, hardware and software tools. This role specialises in managing the usage of highly advanced State of the art Powertrain in the Loop and Vehicle in the Loop test properties. The role requires close collaboration working with all teams from all aspects of the propulsion system traditional ICE, transmission, driveline, hybrid and full BEV systems in order to optimise, integrate and validate the whole propulsion system before VB. The PiL and ViL test environment forms part of the end to end tool chain process starting with virtual testing through to physical testing and maximises propulsion system optimisation and delivery through advanced and comprehensive DVM design and automation.
Key Accountabilities and Responsibilities
As a Lead Engineer (Physical Methodologies) you will contribute to the development of tools and methodologies to support the calibration and validation of the engine control system, ensure capable, robust and documented methods across all attributes and systems supporting robust and optimised design. You will contribute to the development of capable, efficient, standardised and automated simulation processes and work on ensuring Jaguar Land Rover has capable, effective and sustainable software and hardware component tools to support the calibration and engine control system.
WHAT YOULL NEED
You will be an individual with a customer first mindset who is easy to do business with and makes people feel special, driven to deliver experiences that are personalised, transparent and dependable. You will work independently, be results driven, demonstrate tenacity, drive and perseverance and have the ability to deliver operational plans in a complex, highly demanding environments.
