Senior Suspension Design Engineer

Renault Sport Racing have an excellent opportunity to join our team at a tremendously exciting time in our history within Formula 1.   As we continue to grow as a team, we are looking for a highly talented individual to join the Suspension Design team as a Senior Suspension Design Engineer.   

Senior Design Engineer – The Role

Reporting to the Head of Suspension Design the successful candidate will undertake a senior role and take ownership of a significant area of the suspension system. This could be the scheming and detailing of inboard/outboard suspension systems and components (such as uprights, rockers, levers, hydraulic & pneumatic systems etc.). The candidate should also be able to define, analyse and develop suspension geometries. In addition, while it is not required that you should be a composites specialist you should be confident to design non-structural composite material components (such as bracketry, cooling ducts etc.). Your duties will also include specifying and detailing any necessary tooling, jigs or testing fixtures.

Senior Design Engineer – The Person

We are looking for an individual who has extensive experience of working in a design role in motorsport, preferably in an F1 team.  Excellent communication skills and a keen eye for detail are a must, alongside the ability to work under pressure.

As a senior design position we have high expectations of a candidate’s engineering abilities. In particular candidates must be able to demonstrate:

  • An understanding of implications on overall car performance when balancing design criteria
  • Experience of being a senior specialist/technical expert for a defined part of the car
  • A proven and pro-active fault implementation approach
  • The ability to check junior designer drawings before release and steer less experienced staff whilst working under their defined area
  • A track record of high standards/ownership for all aspects of work delivered

Candidates must be self-motivated, capable of working with minimal supervision and delivering high quality designs to crucial deadlines.

Our offer to you

In return for your hard work and dedication we offer a team who is truly ambitious with their goals, with a unique and friendly working environment and competitive remuneration – including car schemes, pension, free onsite gym, subsidised canteen and many others.

Applicants must be eligible to work in the UK
