About The Job
If you have a passion for seeing your creations come to life then Xtrac may have the right opportunity for you. We are looking for talented and experienced Design Engineers to join our busy and expanding team.
Working within small cohesive teams on challenging projects in a fast moving environment, you’ll be responsible for the design and detail of gearbox components and complete transmission systems, using the NX 3D CAD system, which you will see move from design to the race track!
Ideally you will be qualified to a minimum of BEng or BSc degree level, or equivalent, in Mechanical, Automotive or Aerospace Engineering with experience in a design engineering environment in a similar role. You should be a competent CAD user, preferably Siemens NX & TeamCenter 10 PLM. Previous Motorsport or Automotive experience is also preferable, as is an experience of designing rotating metal components.
Excellent organisational and IT skills (MS Office) are a pre-requisite, and your experience to date will have equipped you with knowledge of manufacturing processes, procedures, controls and quality standards, together with ERP systems.
With a high level of autonomy and influence within your team, success of projects will depend on your excellent communication skills, specifically to liaise closely with customers and to forge good working relationships throughout Xtrac.
Just like the teams we design for, Xtrac employees work hard and fast so you will need to have the ability to work calmly and constructively in a pressurised, and ever changing environment with the ability to manage and prioritise your own workload. We require initiative, flexibility and enthusiasm to achieve the challenging targets of our projects.
