Location: Multimatic Technical Centre, Markham, Ontario, Canada
Posted: June 6th, 2019
Located in Markham, Ontario, Canada, Multimatic Technical Centre (MTC) is part of Multimatic’s Engineering Group. MTC provides advanced design, simulation, testing and prototyping services to Multimatic’s production divisions and to Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM’s), niche vehicle manufacturers, motorsports organizations, military equipment contractors and consumer product companies.
MTC houses key engineering, fabrication, testing and development capabilities under one roof, enabling rapid turnaround and tight integration between departments (vehicle systems engineering, product engineering, predictive methods, mechatronics, product testing and validation, composites, fabrication and prototyping). Additional specialized services utilize MTC’s full-vehicle, multi-post shaker rig and a proprietary vehicle dynamics simulator. These services are further enhanced by the capabilities of a fully equipped motorsports department.
Multimatic Technical Centre is seeking to recruit an Electronics Technologist who will be working for the mechatronics group and building and troubleshooting electrical related systems to support mechatronic automotive components such as powered closure systems, adaptive/active suspension systems, and powered aerodynamic devices.
