What to expect
At Over 30,000 Cores we have one of the largest High Performance Computing centres and increasingly Global IT spread across India, China, Europe and Brazil. We invest continuously and heavily in both IT Hardware and in the development of new tools and techniques to keep us on the cutting edge of simulation. We are looking for Senior Leaders in Virtual Engineering to join us and lead vehicle or system programmes with concept simulation, modelling expertise and tools from research thru to the delivery phase to JOB1.
You will join a world class team of simulation engineers and lead developing modelling tools and environments working in collaboration with all engineering teams to deliver the engineering for iconic vehicles known and respected throughout the world. If you are passionate about Virtual Engineering and want to take your career to the next level in a diverse and dynamic team in a growing but still nimble company then Virtual Engineering at Jaguar Land Rover offers a rich career experience.
Key Accountabilities and Responsibilities
* Lead development of Automotive Components/Systems using engineering knowledge and experience combined with Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) techniques, to meet NVH & Dynamics performance targets.
Run CAE analysis, summarise results and feedback conclusions to the component Lead Engineers in an efficient manner.Able to work effectively with design teams to develop and optimise solutions considering multi-attributes within defined deadlines and time constraints. Have some product knowledge and awareness of potential design constraints (packaging, manufacturing etc.) and ensure due consideration is given in developing solutions.Coordinate and lead projects and teams including the feedback of results as required through design / project reviews. * Support and present at design reviews with key stakeholders: COC component design teams, PAT teams, packaging teams, JLR Programme teams
* Liaise with all internal customers of our business as well as offshore operations where necessary.
* Support the continual development of tools and techniques which enhance capability, improve quality and robustness of Virtual models.
