At the Mercedes-AMG Petronas Formula One Team, a group of passionate and determined people work to design, develop, manufacture and race the cars driven by seven-time World Champion Lewis Hamilton and rising star George Russell.
The Team has set a new benchmark for Formula One success during the sport’s current Hybrid era, winning consecutive Drivers’ and Constructors’ World Championships in 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020, and the Constructors’ Championship in 2021.
To be a part of our team, it does not matter whether you already have an interest in motorsport or not: we are looking for people who are passionate about reaching their full potential and are excited about constantly learning. We are highly focused on equal opportunities and pride ourselves on our strong, inclusive values and culture.
An exciting position has become available within the Simulation and Modelling group for a new Simulation and Modelling Engineer. This position will report directly to the Lead Simulation and Modelling Engineer and will work with the Simulation and Modelling group on exciting projects.
We are looking for engineers with excellent mathematical modelling, numerical analysis and computational methods skills, particularly in the field of engineering optimisation and numerical optimal control, along with the ability to write quality code towards the development of the advanced vehicle simulations within our current environments.
As our Simulation and Modelling Engineer your responsibilities will include
Developing and maintaining advanced physical models, sub-models and simulation algorithms to meet the requirements of our current simulation methodologies
Research to continuously innovate the group technology and to develop our models and simulation further, while pragmatically meeting the engineering requirements of the Team
Empowered to deliver on strategical projects and goals for the Team in the field on modelling and simulation with a particular focus on optimisation while keeping alignment with the intent of the group
Interacting internally and directly with other groups within the Team to provide solutions supporting objective technical decision making
Ensuring the on-going data quality and correlation of the developed simulation tools against track and test data to maintain the validity of the numerical results
What we are looking for:
As well as being a passionate and hardworking team player, the ideal candidates will:
Have a mechanical or aeronautical engineering degree (MEng, MSc or PhD) from a leading university or similar qualification
Possess experience in industry and/or academia in a comparable role, developing mathematical models and simulation algorithms
Have an excellent grounding in engineering numerical analysis, computational methods, and classical mechanics
Have a solid understanding of non-linear programming techniques, engineering optimisation numerical optimal control and linear solvers
Demonstrate an interest in performance optimisation of algorithms and linear solvers
Be comfortable with engineering software tools, object-oriented coding languages, while demonstrate the experience in developing quality software
Show excellent communicative and collaborative skills
Demonstrate the capability, the energy and the attitude which are essential for our work environment
