When our founder Bruce McLaren passed away at the age of 32 he left behind a legacy that has shaped who we are today. We have an unrivalled heritage which has its roots in racing; but McLaren Automotive is now creating a story of its own and we want you to be a part of it.
As part of our Track25 business plan we will launch 18 new models or derivatives of our vehicles and look to expand our retailer network into new markets with an aim of having 100 retailers globally. Track 25 and McLaren Automotive’ s growing reputation is testament to our world class employees.
This role is as an Engineer within Advance Engineering, working in the Technology Discovery team. In this role, you’ll be focussing on the development of tools, processes and solutions that allow us to determine how future McLaren vehicles should perform. This role requires experience in the following areas:
In the Technology Discovery team, you’ll be working with the engineering and product teams to define targets and technologies for future McLaren vehicles. You’ll develop tools to bring information into, manage and drive the target setting process. You’ll develop tools to bring engineering roadmaps together and align them with the future vehicle plan. This may involve learning new software languages & platforms, as we develop state of the art toolsets.
As part of this role, you’ll also be simulating future vehicles and using the results along with the engineering roadmaps to understand gaps in our technology forecasts, and will develop recommendations for how to fill them. You’ll be comfortable with building simulation models of new vehicle systems as required, working with the CAE and Controls teams.
As a technical specialist with strong ‘doing’ skills you’ll be responsible for contributing to AE projects related to your technical expertise in collaboration with other AE and McLaren employees. As part of the team, you’ll be expected to help your team mates with their projects with technical support or simply brainstorming ideas. You’ll be expected to expand and broaden your areas of technical competence, especially in areas we identify as being particularly relevant to our technology roadmap.
As a member of an exceptionally creative, motivated and technically strong team you will be expected to share your expertise with the team, developing their understanding and skills. In addition, it’s expected that you’ll learn from other team members in return and to contribute to developing the team’s innovation culture.
