Job Specification

Multimatic is a global automotive company providing hardware and engineering services to OEMs around the world.  Its newly formed Cambridge (UK) based electronics division, Multimatic Electronic Systems (MES), will meet the growing needs of our automotive customers in electronics hardware and software control.  Combining our new products with Multimatic’s existing expertise in suspension systems, vehicle dynamics, mechanisms and mechatronics will enable us to go to market with complete active suspension, active aero and powered door products to our customers in the future.

We are seeking an Automotive Electronics Process and Quality Manager to lead and implement our business and development processes. You would be working with our engineering teams based in the UK and Canada to develop our existing processes and best practice to the ASPICE model using our ISO9001:2015 quality system as a foundation. We need someone who can both lead these activities from the front, whilst also being happy to get involved in the detail. Most importantly we need someone who will embed themselves within our Engineering teams and who understands that these processes are a means to an end, rather than the end itself.

You would be joining this division at a great time – early enough to make your mark in the formation and creation, whilst also benefiting from the stability and security that our parent company provides.

Key Areas of Responsibility:

  • Produce and deliver on a plan to achieve the objectives.
  • Work with our engineers to define and implement work processes that meet industry standard requirements, can be well used by our development teams and do not become a barrier to innovation or agility in the team.
  • Work with our Functional Safety Team to ensure our developed processes support our ISO26262 compliance.
  • Define requirements for tools and processes to ensure that required Base Practices are covered and required Work Products are produced to required standards.
  • Support our teams to excel within a pilot project.
  • Continuously review the processes developed to deliver constant improvement.
  • Complete internal audits to ensure compliance with the processes; where gaps exist work with our team to fill these.
  • Be our internal quality champion within the division – lead by example, embed yourself within our teams, run training courses and help engineers to fill gaps.
  • Represent our division to our external and internal customers on all quality matters.
  • The ability to grow with the role and to take on additional responsibilities as we develop relationships with contract manufacturers to produce our control products.

Education and Experience:

  • Understanding of software and electronics development processes for automotive or other safety critical systems development.
  • Understanding of SPICE software quality standards, ideally Automotive SPICE (ASPICE).
  • Understanding of ISO26262 Functional Safety aspects which relate to quality and work process requirements.
  • Have been involved, ideally in a managerial capacity, in a company that has implemented ASPICE.
  • Degree in Electronics or Computer Science
  • Experience in process design and implementation
  • Preferable experience in ASPICE audits
