Principal Engineer – Electrified Powertrain
To limit the global temperature rise to 1.5ºC, car emissions must be zero by 2050 at the latest… This means we must be selling only electric cars in the early 2030s!
The automotive industry is set to advance more in the next five years than it has in the last 100. It is a moment at which we must adapt and change to survive.
With the industry set to evolve so much in the next 5 years, this also mean our engineers will have to adapt and adjust to survive too. Why wait for the industry to change when you can make the switch first and be head of the game?
This prospect would give you the opportunity to make that jump and provide you with the chance to work on the latest driveline and transmission systems.
You would be joining a well-established company who were founded in 2007, they are expanding rapidly in both UK and US which leaves lots of room for progression too.
