This role will work within the controls team developing software, data analysis and fault-finding for testing and integration of electric commercial vehicle ancillary systems including Energy Storage Systems and exposure to powertrain controls. You will have exposure to the full breadth of the v-cycle and the space to take something from idea right through to on-vehicle validation. Achieving your goals will be challenging but immensely rewarding, and you will be expected to demonstrate a high degree of initiative, autonomy, perseverance and dedication.

Candidates must be eligible to work in the UK. Candidates already in the UK and working under Tier 2 Sponsorship will also be considered.

Responsibilities and Activities

  • Integration of new components and systems through the development and adaptation of controls software interfaces and logic for EV vehicles. These include vehicle accessories, DC charging controllers, Energy Storage Systems and powertrain controllers;
  • Code generation onto embedded controller using Matlab/Simulink code generation;
  • MiL, SiL, HiL and hardware bench testing of control algorithms and software to test system logic and simulate system design;
  • For new projects: assessment of new components – actuators, sensors for the use in embedded control systems;
  • FMEA of system control software;
  • On-vehicle testing of controls software functionality, parametrization, turning and safety;
  • Data analysis and fault diagnosis to improve system control software in development;
  • Support development and operation of a multi-pack Energy Storage System.
