About the job Senior Aerodynamics Engineer
Senior Aerodynamics Engineer
We have partnered with a leading F1 Team to help them place a Senior Aerodynamics Engineer. For many fans of Formula One, the sport exists between lights and chequered flag on a Sunday afternoon. It begins and ends with the exploits of the drivers on the track. But this is merely the tip of the spear. The reality of modern F1 is that of a complex and intertwined operation, every part of which needs to perform near its limit if success is to be achieved. From the pit crew searching for the ultimate repeatable pit stop, to the inspiration of the designers, the application of engineers and the herculean efforts of an army of fabricators and machinists. Much of their success is thanks to the diversity of thought and spectrum of skill sets held within the team, their ability to recognise unique contributions from individual team members is just a part of why they love what they do.
They have an exciting opportunity for a Senior Aerodynamic Engineer to be a part of our highly skilled F1 Aerodynamics team, becoming a key player in the development of our championship winning Formula One cars, and ensuring their future success on the racetrack.
Working from their campus in Milton Keynes, you will be involved in the complete aerodynamic development cycle, from initial concepts through to deployment on the race car. This will include the design of components, CFD simulation wind tunnel testing and track liaison.
