Don’t just go to work; become part of a unique company within a fast-moving industry. TOYOTA GAZOO Racing Europe – creating excitement through team spirit and advanced technology!


As Simulation and Performance Engineer, you will play a key role in the field of ‘race car peformance optimisation’ and participate in road car projects that facilitate technology transfer from race to road cars. You will optimise car performance through simulation and data analysis with continuous improvement to internal methodologies and processes. You will collaborate with cross-functional teams to improve the performance and reliability of Le Mans Hypercar, GT3 and  road car projects.


Your Tasks:

  • Performance Analysis: Analyse simulation results from offline simulation tools, driver-in-loop simulator and track data to evaluate vehicle performance. Identify areas for improvement and recommend design or process modifications. Conduct investigative studies using analytical or simulation approach to enhance vehicle performance

  • Model Validation: Validate simulation models by comparing predictions with real-world data to ensure correlation accuracy

  • Performance Markers: Develop metrics (KPIs) to support performance analysis optimisation

  • Optimization: Apply and develop in-house optimization techniques to enhance vehicle performance and reliability

  • Documentation: Regularly communicate findings and recommendations of simulation and analytical studies with clearly written documentation including assumptions, methodologies and results

  • Continuous Improvement: Contribute to the development and improvement of internal processes and methodologies while contributing to vehicle development through evaluation of new vehicle concepts. Stay updated on industry trends, emerging technologies and best practices
