West Midlands - £50,000 - £75,000

Are you an engineer with a passion for R&D technologies and someone who enjoys working on large projects with multiple teams collaborating around one objective?

Piper Maddox is partnered with one of the most famous and prestigious engineering companies in the world who are looking to develop Electric Aircraft in collaboration with the UK government to explore the use cases of Electric Propulsion.

You will be instrumental in leading the development of the energy storage system for the electric aircraft which has the potential to become the standardized model for all UK-produced electric aircraft.

The Role:
- You will work across various technical projects and hold responsibility for leading/coordinating other engineers to ensure delivery.
- You will be responsible for developing, implementing, and validating the battery system
architectures for customers developing associated Electric Powertrain technologies.
- You will be a direct point of contact for the customer and will be expected to generate requirements and plan the architecture for the solution you provide.
- Develop and execute appropriate system-level verification & validation plans via coordination of design engineers, HIL/SIL testers, and build technicians.

What we need to see:
- A minimum of 5 years of experience developing Battery Systems for Electric Vehicles.
- Degree in Electrical & Electronics / Systems Engineering / Software / Mechatronics/Robotics or a relevant equivalent.
- Ability to work effectively in a consultancy where there may be several projects running at one time.
- Flexible to work in a collaborative and diverse working culture.

Why should you apply?
- The opportunity to build a flexible BMS platform for Aerospace and lead the development of a technology that hasn't been created beforehand.
- You will be joining a company with a long history of engineering feats with access to a massive budget to play and with the benefit of being on a more agile R&D/T team.
- Excellent salary and package offering with a range of additional benefits.

If you are an individual with a burning desire to leave a legacy of engineering excellence behind them then look no further, as your BMS design could be the model all future UK models are based on.
