Junior Software Engineer

πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§ Woking, UK
Full Time
0+ years exp.

McLaren Racing, we believe only by chasing performance in everything we do can
we give ourselves the best chance of success. Performance on track and in
the factory. Performance for our people, our business and our
partners. It’s about more than winning. It’s about hitting the
highest standards, and then raising the bar again.

Purpose of the Role:

The purpose of this role is to analyse, design and engineer innovative software solutions to projects aligned with the requirements of McLaren Racing.

Role Dimensions:

The Software & Data Science department is responsible for the analysis, design, and delivery of bespoke software tools which ultimately help improve our Formula 1 car's performance. This starts with aerodynamicists submitting designs via the CFD Portal, through wind tunnel data acquisition, processing, and analysis, to simulation and car setup optimisation, to trackside operational decision-making tools such as race strategy. We are a cross-functional group, bringing together data science, machine learning, software engineering, and DevOps to create solutions for our customers' needs.

As a Senior Associate Software Engineer, you will be involved in all stages of the development life cycle from initial analysis right through to deployment, monitoring, and support. Due to the nature of track and tunnel operations, some flexibility to work out of office hours and weekends will be required.

Principal Accountabilities:

  • To freely share knowledge, insight, best practice, and ideas
