Job Title: Hybrid and Electric Modelling Engineer
Location: Leicester
Contract Type: Contract
Sector: Engineering
Salary: £37

My Client are looking to hire a Hybrid and Electric Modelling Engineer as part of the Software and Controls team this role will involve modelling of vehicle electric/hybrid propulsion systems including hybrid control and battery management strategies, developing complex control strategies and supporting the generation of system and sub-system (component) requirements.

Key Function:
• Modelling electric/hybrid vehicle propulsion systems including hybrid powertrain control, ancillary system control and battery management strategies.
• Developing complex control strategies utilising Matlab / Simulink / Stateflow.
• Developing safety related control systems utilising ISO26262 methodologies.
• Supporting the generation of system and software level requirements.
• Realising control strategies onto rapid prototyping hardware and design proving using Hardware in the Loop (HIL) facilities.
• Conducting prototype integration and testing on full scale prototype vehicles.
• Producing technical documentation, reports and specifications to support project needs.
• Delivering technical assistance and proposal content into the business development team in support of proposals and new business development.

Experience
Essential experience for this role would include:
• Demonstrable experience in working to full software V-Cycle.
• Producing documentation to a high standard (e.g. design, analysis, results).
