The role:

We have an exciting opening for an experienced F1 Aerodynamicist to join one of our development groups.  As our Aerodynamicist you will work collaboratively as part of a small team, applying your thoughtful and curious nature to a range of stimulating challenges.  By interpreting trends and developing understanding, you will create innovative engineering solutions to real problems.  As a valued member of our Aerodynamics Department, your ideas and skills will make a tangible contribution to the Team.

 

Your responsibilities will include:

  • Developing aerodynamic concepts
  • Interpreting trends, for example from our state-of-the-art CFD and wind tunnel facilities
  • Improving our understanding of flow structures
  • Collaborating to create innovative solutions
  • Surfacing and design of components
  • Meshing and post-processing CFD
  • Planning and running test programmes
  • Enhancing the tools that you and your colleagues use to find performance

 

Supported and mentored by knowledgeable engineers, you will see your skills develop.  Immersed in a culture of empowerment and fresh thinking, you will take the next step in a successful career in your chosen specialism.

This role is office-based, at our campus in Brackley, United Kingdom. 

 

What we are looking for:

It is essential that you have experience of Formula One aerodynamics, using experimental and / or CFD methods to develop concepts that improve car performance.

Your open and honest communication style and broad overview of your subject mean you relish collaborating in a team setting and enjoy discussing technical concepts.  You are equally comfortable working on your own, applying your reflective nature, interpretive skills, attention to detail and dependable judgment to understand complicated engineering problems then propose and evaluate viable solutions in a timely fashion.  Looking to fulfil your potential, you are excited about constantly learning while fostering the understanding of others.

 

What do we offer:

At the heart of our performance are our people. Every member of our team has a voice and plays their part in contributing to our successes on and off the racetrack.

We take pride in creating an innovative, collaborative and high-performance culture where all of our team members are respected, empowered and valued.

Through our Accelerate 25 programme, we are continuously working to make our team even more diverse and inclusive. We welcome applications from all and are committed to attracting, recruiting and retaining the most talented individuals.

Our riverside campus is powered by 100% renewably sourced energy and features an on-site gym and exercise studio, subsidised restaurant and on-site parking with EV chargers available.

We offer a competitive and attractive package of benefits including a generous bonus scheme, Mercedes car lease scheme, private medical cover, life assurance and 25 days holiday. We pride ourselves on our family-friendly environment and employee well-being programme.
