Position Overview

Multimatic Technical Centre Europe (MTCE) provides engineering and product development services to race teams and OEM’s around the world. It is Multimatic's Centre of Excellence for the ongoing design, development and implementation of suspension technologies, and has established strong relationships with key international automotive organizations.  MTCE is also a leading contract engineering and vehicle development resource to major automotive OEMs and a growing number of niche vehicle manufacturers.

Key Areas of Responsibility:

As a vehicle development engineer you will be involved in the development and optimisation of suspension systems for customer vehicles, as well as in-house projects, utilising MTCE’s chassis development rig and proprietary software.  You will be involved in the optimisation of grip for race car suspension from Formula 1 and LMP1 through Formula E to many other categories and you will be involved in the optimisation of road car suspension for performance, comfort and grip.


You will also be involved in the development and optimisation of MTCE’s suspension products, including dampers, springs, etc. using the same techniques.  Knowledge of suspension design would therefore be a distinct advantage as would an understanding of hydraulic systems.
