An ever-evolving heritage. A truly exciting future. Two of the world’s most iconic brands. Jaguar Land Rover is revered across the globe. Continually pushing the boundaries of innovation and redefining the benchmark for excellence, we set the standards others want to follow. We want to keep it that way too. Which is where you join the journey.


Suspension. Engine mounts. Wheels and tyres. To provide an exceptional driving experience, every chassis component needs be honed to perfection. That takes all kinds of people, from designers to project managers.

As the Vehicle Dynamics System Owner within the Core Vehicle Dynamics team, you’ll be part of a unique and evolving department within Chassis Engineering. You’ll take the lead from a technical aspect on the early strategy, definition, development and delivery of the adaptive systems, consisting of multiple new technologies and new applications of current technologies.

In addition, you’ll lead technology developments in suspension damper modules, and be responsible for the vertical dynamics strategy, as well as the identification and creation of system requirements – including cascading requirements to components within the damper module and other required functions, such as Electrical and Controls. You’ll also be responsible for system interrogation, fault-finding and fixing, and you’ll develop and deploy test methods for sign-off of functionality at the appropriate levels of definition.


You’ll already have an excellent track record of working with damper modules in various areas, such as ride and handling, loads management and Noise, Vibration and Harshness (NVH). It is essential that you have an understanding of the control methods used in the deployment of adaptive damping, modelling techniques, and test and measurement techniques. Along with excellent organisation and project planning skills, you’ll also be a strong communicator with the ability to influence others and easily engage with colleagues and stakeholders.

To give you a distinct advantage, you’ll ideally have knowledge of MATLAB or Simulink, with experience using DSpace, CANape and CarMaker. Finally an engineering degree is essential, however a degree specifically in mechatronics would be highly advantageous.


Bring all this to the home of premium innovation, and you’ll find the opportunities to further your career with a world-class team, a discounted car purchase and lease scheme for you and your family, membership of a competitive pension plan and performance related bonus scheme. All this and more makes Jaguar Land Rover the perfect place to continue your journey.

Jaguar Land Rover is committed to equal opportunities for all
