Mechanical Design Engineer
Renault Sport have been a presence within Formula 1 for 40 years and we are embarking on a truly exciting period in our history. As the Team progresses up the grid we are looking to expand our Race Car Design Group. If you have ambition and wish to join an organisation that intends to be fighting for the championship soon, then let’s see if your skills match our requirements. Within our factory in Enstone, we are looking to hire the most talented individuals to support our mission. As part of this team, we have two positions within our Design Office as a Mechanical Design Engineer.
Mechanical Design Engineer – The Role
Working in either the Power Unit Integration or Suspension Design Groups the successful candidate will undertake the scheming and detailing of metallic race car components packaged within Aero constraints. For the PU Group the items to be worked on could include Engine Installation, Driver Controls, Electrical / Electronic Housings, Hydraulic / BWW, Exhaust, Fuel and Cooling Systems. In the Suspension Group the focus could be on Inboard Ride Control Mechanisms, Outboard Uprights and Brake Systems. Additionally, the Suspension Group is also responsible for Brake Cooling Assemblies. Therefore, while it is not required that you should be a composites specialist you should be confident to design non-structural composite material components. Furthermore, duties will extend to the necessary component jigs and post-race event problem investigations/resolutions.
At all times our team members are supported/coached by more experienced senior designers to enhance career development. Appropriate training (GD&T, CATIA Stress, etc.) will be given by outside consultants whilst on-going CATIA skills enhancement is provided by our on-site CAD coaches. Furthermore, there is the opportunity to gain direct experience of trackside operations via our weekend command centre volunteer rota.
