Position Summary

You’ll be an integral part of the product development team, reporting directly to the Head of Product Development. You’ll be working closely alongside the lead firmware engineer in the development of new innovative products being designed to advance technologies in the rail industry.

We’re looking for someone with a true passion for test engineering who has the demonstrated practical experience, and is committed to keeping up to date with latest available technologies for implementation into our verification/validation processes.

Position Responsibilities

To be able to fulfil the requirements of this role, you will need a broad understanding of firmware and electronics engineering, with some specialised knowledge as well as the capacity to innovate.

Typically, you will be involved with:

  • Preparation of verification and validation plans for the products designed
  • Creation/documentation of test cases
  • Hands-on assembly of prototype test jigs/assemblies
  • Providing traceability between development requirements and test cases
  • Application Lifecycle Management tools

  • Preparation of documentation for internal and customer requirements
Typical Projects and Systems

Working in a systems engineering environment, as a part of the new product development team, you will be involved with verification test and integration activities of new products that will be used on-board rolling stock such as:

  • Electronic Control units for various onboard applications including design for functional safety.
  • Design of audio equipment used in the drivers cab and saloon.
  • LED and lighting equipment mounted internally and externally.
