You will work on a number of products (Suspension control, Chassis control, Lighting, Instruments, Connectivity, Keyless systems, ARAS systems etc) and ensure any deviations from specification are accurately investigated / reported. At Senior Engineer level you will develop our more junior engineers.

Duties and Responsibilities:
• Review of Systems Requirements for testability.
