Purpose of the Role:
Working within the Control Systems department, you will be actively involved in the development and implementation of electrical vehicle control systems and associated control strategies. Additionally you will also create simulation and analysis toolsets to maximise the performance and reliability of electrical control systems. You will ensure techniques, tools and processes that you develop within the team are effectively deployed.
In this role you will:
Develop, optimise and configure the Standard ECU (SECU) control software to maximise electrical performance and reliability.
Generate and maintain software and systems to support the operation and performance development of the electrical vehicle control systems, including data analysis, simulation and configuration toolsets.
Contribute to the testing and validation of control software using Hardware in the Loop (HiL) and Software in the Loop (SiL) test environments.
Provide advanced systems issue diagnosis from telemetry data.
Develop and utilise car condition monitoring, data augmentation and data management tools.
Develop and deploy Control Systems processes, tools and software for dyno and other test facilities.
Drive development and oversee testing and validation of the relevant car systems for current and future car marques, working with other engineering departments to ensure Control Systems requirements are met.
Introduce new ideas, technologies and solutions to further improve our performance development capabilities.
Knowledge, Skills and Experience:
Excellent degree in a relevant engineering discipline (Control, Mechanical, Software, Mechatronics)
Experience in using MATLAB/Simulink/Stateflow.
Experience in modelling/ simulation of control systems with a combination of mechanical, hydraulic and electrical components.
Experience in configuring and operating high-speed data acquisition and analysis systems.
Knowledge of electrical vehicle systems (transmission, hydraulics, battery system, brake-by-wire) and related control methods.
Knowledge of data management techniques.
Technically amongst the best in class in their field.
Strong analytical skills, with a data driven approach to problem solving.
Self-motivated with high levels of initiative.
Innovative and enthusiastic self-starter, able to work autonomously under pressure and to tight deadlines.
Able to operate effectively as part of a team and engage with all levels in an organisation.
Approachable, with balanced judgment and a high level of personal integrity.
We shall provide training for exceptional candidates and an exam will have to be passed in order to start work.
Our clients will be overseas UK automotive companies and this is a fantastic opportunity for the right candidate.
Only candidates with degrees from STEM fields with be considered.
