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 are looking for a passionate Senior Electronics Engineer to join the newly formed Red Bull Powertrains. In our brand-new purpose-built Electronics facility, we have the tools required to develop new technologies, deliver exciting research projects and above all support our dynamic team of Engineers, ensuring that they flourish and realise their goals and targets.

  • To be considered for this Senior Electronics Engineer role, you will be educated to degree level within an Electrical/Electronic Engineering or allied discipline, as well as having multi-year experience in state-of-the-art electronics projects.

You’re skilled at starting a design from a blank sheet of paper and finding innovate solutions, which enable performance advantages while maintaining the highest product quality. A background of working with highly efficient, high power (100kW+) and high voltage (up to 1000V) systems is preferred as well as advanced knowledge of electronics simulation and data analysis tools. You will have a proven track record of successful fault investigation, containment, and rectification.
