Job Description

Sitec has an exciting opportunity for a Lead Engineer for our client Perkins Engines, at their site in Peterborough. This is a contract role, for an estimated 24 months.

Caterpillar's legacy of industry leadership dates back to 1925. We have a global footprint with product in more than 180 countries. Caterpillar is a Fortune 50 company and one of the 30 companies on the Dow Jones Industrial Average. We are among Interbrand's Top 100 Global Brands and recognized as one of Barron's World's Most Respected Companies. More than 300 products make up the most diverse product line in the industry.

The Innovation & Technology Development team offers some of the most exciting engineering roles within the Caterpillar global organisation. Working on the integration of electronic and electrical systems within multiple Caterpillar products provides the opportunity to work with multiple disciplines within the organisation.

The integration of the latest Electronics and Electrical technology helps differentiate Caterpillar products from its competitors by enabling exceptional performance and value to the customer. Our engine systems control air and fuel delivery with millisecond precision to maximise performance and minimise exhaust emissions. Our integrated machine systems control all aspects of construction machine operation (engine, transmission, hydraulic systems), provide the human-machine interface (operator controls and information displays), and constantly monitor and communicate position, operation, diagnostic and prognostic information to enable machine automation, improved productivity and enhanced serviceability.

The Advanced Components & Technologies (AC&T) division, based in Peterborough (UK), have a number of exiting opportunities to join the team as a Lead Engineer to lead the design and development of electrical and electronic control systems for Caterpillar engine and machine prime products developed and produced in Europe.

Experience required for the role of Lead Engineer:

Degree-qualified engineer with experience in the broad range of systems engineering activities involved in the development of machine and diesel engine control systems, including:
* Requirements capture
* Electrical system definition
* Hardware selection and matching these components to ECU I/O
* Software specification and development, verification and validation.
* Role involves extensive interaction with customers and team members across organisation lines and so strong communication and inter-personal skills are essential.
