Parametric NX Design Engineer

Forming part of the design team, primary an engineering rather than styling role with expectation to take a project lead roles with responsibility for the progression of designs from concept to delivery. Additionally working very closely with the simulation and optimisation team to develop bespoke and novel design optimisation processes. Communication and lesion with clients and yards will also be expected.

Responsibilities will include

  • Speciation Development: Working closely with the control/systems, performance and design engineering in the creation of design specifications ensuring system and product feasibility
  • Design Development: Design of light weight mechanical and electro mechanical systems in Siemens NX with from the product from concept though to manufacturing release. Ensuring suitability of mechanical systems within master model environment with also be key.
  • Engineering:  Self sufficient applying principles of mechanics, hydraulics, and materials, basic load case development, both hand sizing calculations and detailed stress analysis though the use finite element methods. (with additional support provided by specialist structural analysts where required)
  • Management of engineering releases and Bill of Materials, Support the procurement process
  • Test plan development and testing, including FMEA

We are looking for an experienced, intelligent, professional engineer, with particular attention to the following personal attributes:

  • Intelligent and technically sharp – high grade MEng or similar level qualification from a reputable university.


  • Designing and commissioning performance-critical electrical and / or hydraulic control systems in a similar field – e.g. Automotive, Aerospace, or Marine.
  • Writing and calibrating embedded code – ideally both in C and Simulink.
  • Writing plant-model simulations in a physical modelling tool (such as Simulink, Dymola, Amesim or similar)
  • Whole-system understanding: including electrical, hydraulic, control, calibration, and mechanical aspects.
  • Practical Electrical / electronic experience would be useful but is not vital.
  • Experience in the marine environment is not required.
