Working within the New Technology team, and reporting to the Lead Design Engineer, the Mechanical Design Engineer (or Senior Engineer) will be joining a talented team of like-minded Design Engineers, working on cutting-edge R&D projects for our innovation team. The role will have a dynamic workload and will suit an individual who has a keen interest in technology, and who is willing to work in a fast-paced environment. They will be producing design solutions that arise from new product designs, customer requests, and other ad hoc R&D activities.
"The innovation team is a group of focussed, high-performing, and motivated individuals concentrating on rapid technology development and problem-solving. We work quickly and efficiently on defining new opportunities to test them as early as possible to find the limits of new ideas and solutions to design, process, and materials challenges. When building new parts or motors to test we look to 'fail fast & learn quickly!'. If you believe you fit the mould, we'd love to have you in our teams" Tim Woolmer (CTO) & Simon Odling (Chief of New Technology)
To succeed in this role, we believe you'll need:
Our mission is to lead the design and delivery of the best electric motor technology available. We believe that diversity of thought, and experience is a key driver of innovation. Research shows that while men apply to jobs if they meet ~60% of criteria, women and those in traditionally underrepresented groups tend to only apply if they check all boxes. So if you think you have what it takes but don’t meet every single point, please still get in touch. We’d love to have an initial chat and see if you could add value.
YASA, a Mercedes Benz group company, is leading the way in EV Motor Revolution with our patented and unique Axial Flux Technology. Our motor is more powerful, lighter, and smaller than our competitors. Our spirit of innovation drives us to continually explore and test new technologies, a mindset that exists from early-stage R&D projects through to manufacturing optimisation. We stay true to the freedom and flexibility that drove our success as a start-up, alongside having the stability, security, and roadmap of an established organisation.
