We are looking for a Systems Development Engineer to join the Engine Management Systems team located at our Engineering Centre in Coventry. At our Coventry site, we have specialist teams focusing on powertrain, infotainment and safety systems, thermal systems and rotating machines for a variety of automotive and off-highway manufacturers.
This position will provide you with the opportunity to work within our advanced engineering teams with a research and development focus, developing and promoting DENSO components to potential new customers in Europe. You will investigate new mechanisms behind future engine and vehicle technologies specifying component requirements. You will be involved with designing and implementing prototypes, both in terms of engine and vehicle software, to help demonstrate these technologies to our customers. You will act as an interface between our European customers and our Research and Development department in Japan, with which you will collaborate closely. You will also be involved in gathering and considering European powertrain (system and component) technology trend information to contribute towards our “road map” of powertrain technology needs / requirements into the future, as an input to DENSO’s Global Powertrain Technology Road Map.
You will typically have a passion for technical products and are likely to have a degree in engineering or comparable education with a focus on mechanical, automotive or electronics engineering. The proven ability to manage an electro-mechanical system development project is essential, as is experience of powertrain related systems. Fundamental knowledge of IC engine combustion and engine control will be expected. Knowledge of Matlab, Simulink or similar are also essential. You will be comfortable working either independently or in teams and will demonstrate strong communication and negotiation skills. You should be highly self-motivated, with the ability to be flexible and able to use your initiative.
You will work within an international and highly diverse and multi-cultural organisation on a day-to-day basis. Fluency in English is essential and the ability to speak another European language would be an advantage. In this role you will be expected to undertake occasional business travel and opportunities to work overseas would be available.
