Continually pushing the boundaries of innovation and redefining the benchmark for excellence, we set the standards others want to follow. We want to keep it that way too. Which is where you join the journey.



As Functional Safety Lead Engineer for Chassis Functions you’ll be required to lead the functional Safety activities for chassis features and technologies in accordance with our internal lifecycle.

Working alongside Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and Powertrain departments, you’ll ensure a seamless embodiment of functional safety requirements. You’ll also be expected to engage with Subject Matter Experts, Lead Engineers and Technical Specialists to drive cultural change and functional safety awareness within the team. Driving the pursuit of technical excellence and efficient delivery, you’ll also liaise with, and build relationships, with suppliers.

You’ll attend and organise regular review meetings and support test engineers regarding verification and validation of safety requirements goals. 



An expert in Functional Safety, you’ll need to be educated to degree level in Mechanical, Automotive or Electrical/ Electronic/ Systems Engineering. Additionally, you’ll need a good working knowledge of applying ISO26262 (or similar standards such as IEC 61508).

Focused on delivering quality, consistent results in a highly demanding environment, you’ll demonstrate logical and analytical thinking, with the ability to draw on your own initiative to solve problems.

Ideally, it would be desirable if you also hold a good knowledge of Chassis Systems, vehicle electrical architecture, and networks, alongside working knowledge in Failure Mode Avoidance (FMA).
