Powertrain Control Engineer

Powertrain Control Engineer

  • Kent

Are you a strong believer in making the world a more sustainable place? Is your current company moving in the right direction to make the world more energy efficient and cleaner?
If you can’t answer the second question, then my guess would be they’re not taking the right steps in helping the environment… now ask yourself, how long will this be sustainable?

Do you want to be within a company who are falling behind while others are doing better for the environment?
With all this being said, I think we all know the direction the world is going in.
Whether this is something you agree with or not… it’s going to happen. So, if you are an engineer who is within a company not doing its part, why wait for them to make the change?
With this opportunity it would allow you to work for a company who has a clear vision of a clean, energy-efficient world. They have already reduced their carbon intensity by 28% since 2015 and 85% of their revenue in 2020 came from electric and emissions-reducing hybrid and combustion products, which show the difference they are making.
Not only will you be joining a company with a clear vision and goal, but they are also one of the largest in the industry with over 50,000 employees across 99 locations in 24 countries which provides a great path for both personal and professional development.
