Join the Powertrain Team based in Bristol as a Senior Hybrid Propulsion System Engineer and help us to achieve our mission of pioneering electric aviation.

What will success look like for you, as a Senior Hybrid Propulsion System Engineer?

As a Hybrid Propulsion System Engineer, you will play a key part in developing a brand-new Hybrid Powertrain concept we are designing alongside our Electric Powertrain. You will be responsible for capturing systems-level requirements for hybrid systems concepts. You'll need to develop FHA and FTA for hybrid powertrain systems and develop 2D calculations for different flight missions. You will also assist with systems integration hardware specification and support on systems commissioning and testing.

What would we like you to bring?

We want you to be successful in your role, in order to achieve this, you will need to have proven experience with complex system integrations and experience working with SC E-19, ARP4754, HV Systems, and hybrid system integration. Ideally you will have gained this experience from either Aerospace or Automotive sectors, although this is not essential.
