We operate a fully distributed team, so the ability to work independently and communicate effectively from a remote working location is vital.

If you join our team, you will gain an understanding of how the best commercially available simulation tools work, and what makes the leading cars in F1, Formula E, Indy Car, LMP and many other series tick.

Duties will include:

  • Liaising with clients to help them understand their vehicle performance and extract the best possible value from our tools
  • Diagnosing and fixing any bugs identified by clients or by in-house usage
  • Implementing new features requested by clients, ranging from novel components to new ways to simulate aspects of car performance key to competitive success.

A good degree in engineering is a pre-requisite for applying.

Our ideal applicant will also have the following attributes:

  • Experience in / good understanding of race car vehicle dynamics
  • Extensive prior coding experience
  • Knowledge and experience of C++
  • Demonstrable ability in physical modelling, in particular an understanding of the maths and physics underlying physical systems.
