Job Description

Lead Aero-acoustic Research Engineer
Competitive + bonus

Our innovative technology client in Wiltshire are seeking a Lead Aero-acoustic Research Engineer to join their research department.

Within the Research team we define what’s next. At the very start of the new product ideas chain lays the technologies that enable them. Research delivers the long-term support to the global company growth through technology innovation in our state-of-the-art Wiltshire campus. Our New Product Innovation team relies on the development of key technologies for new innovative products, after which the New Product Development team carries them through to manufacturing; Research not only delivers the birth of new technologies but also supports those technologies through to their realisation and integration within a product.

 We push the boundaries of what others have defined as possible. Our engineering approach starts with different thinking. Then we continuously refine our ideas – unwilling to compromise and driven by an obsession for finding a better way. Today we employ more than 5,800 people around the world in software engineering, mechanical engineering and science-related roles.
