Composite Design Engineer

Full Time
3+ years exp.
US$80,000 – US$120,000 per year

For many fans of Formula One, the sport exists between lights and chequered flag on a Sunday afternoon. It begins and ends with the exploits of the drivers on the track. But this is merely the tip of the spear. The reality of modern F1 is that of a complex and intertwined operation, every part of which needs to perform near its limit if success is to be achieved. From the pit crew searching for the ultimate repeatable pit stop, to the inspiration of the designers, the application of engineers and the herculean efforts of an army of fabricators and machinists. Much of our success is thanks to the diversity of thought and spectrum of skill sets held within the team, our ability to recognise unique contributions from individual team members is just a part of why we love what we do.

Job Description

We have an exciting opportunity for an experienced and enthusiastic Composite Design Engineer to join our talented Composite Design Team. Working from our modern Milton Keynes campus, as part of our open minded, dynamic & inclusive working environment, we ensure everyone can make a valuable contribution to the constantly evolving design & manufacture of our F1 car.

As part of our Composite Design Team, your impact as Composite Design Engineer will be to work alongside RBT & RBPT Engineers, and various Manufacturing Departments to help ensure our future success on the racetrack

Your impact:

  • Cover all aspects of Composite Design from clean sheet idea generation, tooling, detailed component design, assemblies, associated jigs, pit gear and supporting documentation.
  • Be involved in material selection, laminate design, structural sign off and fault fixing.

  • Have experience using 3D CAD (Siemens NX is desirable but training will be provided)

Not only is this a fantastic Composite Design Engineer opportunity, but it is also a fantastic team to work with here at Red Bull Technology.
