The successful applicant for this position will join the Engine Controls team and will take a leading role in the supporting the application of small and medium engine ranges to a major third-party customer's machines and contribute to the development and testing of application level features on this range of engines. As well as focusing on the third-party customer's machines, applications may include genset, industrial and in-house machine applications.

Although our product is an engine control system, including software performing complex control functions, this role is well-suited and will be of interest to any applicant with a strong technical background including engineers from a mechanical, automotive or similar background, as well as those from electronic or controls disciplines.

With much of our work focused on the control of complex mechanical systems, many team members with mechanical engineering backgrounds are forging successful careers within our team, bringing skills which readily compliment those with electronic engineering qualifications and experience. We actively encourage applicants from across this diverse range of skill sets

Key responsibilities:

  1. Working directly with the customer to understand and document key technical requirements. This will include direct contact with the third party customer's technical team, to provide support, technical information and answer technical queries where necessary.

  5. Development of the dSPACE HiL test system and the automation of system level verification test plans using Automation Desk.
  6. Planning and supporting validation tests of key application features.
  7. Supporting software validation and troubleshooting on engine - getting 'hands on' with the end product.

Through this role, the successful candidate will have an excellent opportunity to take part in, and have significant responsibility for the application of a modern engine electronic control system to machine, genset and industrial products.


  1. Strong technical background - ideally a good technical degree in mechanical, electronic, electrical, control systems or automotive engineering - though consideration will be given to other qualifications or significant relevant experience in lieu of this.
  2. Prior experience in engine control system development (preferably in the off-highway industry)

  2. Experience of designing and executing verification test plans for electronic engine control systems
  3. Experience of dSPACE development, including the use of plant models.
  4. Experience of electronic system development tools such as CANape, CANalyser and a working knowledge of J1939 datalink standards
  5. Experience of writing technical documents / requirements / test plans
  6. Experience of running / troubleshooting engine systems, particularly electronics related
