The Systems Engineer will work in the business unit that develops electrified Dual Clutch Transmission. He/She will serve as part of the Systems Engineering team, which is responsible for translation of customer requirements into system level requirements, development of a system design/architecture that meets these requirements and pursuit of the verification/validation of the requirements. This group is also responsible for driving the functional maturity of the transmission, managing technical risk, supporting system integration, design for industrialization and EoL setup. Systems design is composed of transmission attributes or properties such as efficiency, reliability, EMC compliance, NVH, driveability, etc. The systems engineer will contribute to one such attribute.

Job description

  • You are responsible for the technical aspects that belong to a particular transmission attribute. These include: requirement definition and decomposition, technical analysis including simulation and data mining, requesting and reviewing verification and validation of system attribute requirements virtually or using test hardware, providing input to enable the transmission physical subsystems (e.g. clutch assembly, geartrain) to achieve system performance requirements.
  • You report directly to one of the Team Leaders of Systems Engineering within the Systems & Controls group
  • Together with the system design project leadership, you support determination of system attribute planning & priorities (on DVP tests, issue solving, etc.) and ensure that the attribute plans fit into the project schedule detail workpackages that you receive and distribute tasks to other subteams are technically responsible for attribute deliverables (e.g. efficiency maps) and their status (impacted by design changes)
  • You support the technical roadmap for the attribute, collect lessons learnt and contribute to process improvements
  • You report resource and competence gaps to line management and support recruitment


Our client offers a complete portfolio of powertrain solutions for the most popular passenger car segments (conventional, hybrid and full electric). These innovative products provide excellent driving dynamics, enhanced comfort, fun of driving and an ever improving fuel economy.


• Master degree in either mechanical, electrical, control or mechatronics engineering (or comparable)
  • Multidisciplinary modeling knowledge: mechanics, electromagnetics, hydraulics and thermal
  • Industrial experience of at least 3 years in (preferably automotive) product development
  • You have a proven understanding of the sensitivities of key mechanical/electrical design characteristics and control design on the functional performance of a system. You preferably also have a good hold over industrialization concepts around measurement (control plans) and/or validation strategies to mitigate production spread. Proven knowledge of powertrain technology, transmission systems and hybrid electric vehicles in a plus
  • Experience in multiphysics/multibody engineering and simulation in addition to dynamic simulation with the use of simulation tools such as SIMULINK and/or AMESIM is a strong plus
  • Strong communication skills and fluent in English


Your way of working should be characterized by the following:

  • Taking ownership and accountability for your system attribute
  • Pro-active follow up of related project deliverables
  • Open communication & feedback
  • Clear, transparent and periodic/on-demand alignment with different development subteam leaders
  • Focus on Solutions and Collaboration
