Technical Leader Automotive (Based in Australia)

Australia

Posted: 14.07.2021
Application deadline: 31.08.2021

The role is responsible for overseeing the automotive architecture of the next generation of our vehicles and continuing the development of our automotive engineering capability in Australia. A role made for someone with strategic vision, commercial nous and leadership skills, who still enjoys the challenges of hands on engineering and product development.
  • Permanent Role
  • Strategic Leadership and Hands-on Engineering
  • Melbourne location
About Supacat We are a young technology business operating primarily in the Defence sector with a growing footprint in other sectors. Our core business is ultra-high mobility, wheeled vehicles and we are the OEM of a range of vehicles from 450kg to 12T GVM and currently in service with the Australian and NZ armies. We also apply our skills to other areas, such as working with defence primes on large programs and consulting into the automotive industry. We are a relatively small business to be doing all of this and that means we rely on the senior members of our team to be leaders; to work directly with our customers, to bring some industry insight and experience to proceedings, to form and lead teams and to get the job done. About You You will be excited about the opportunity to leave your fingerprints on the business. You’ll be capable of sketching out a chassis and driveline arrangement one day and troubleshooting a radiator attachment arrangement the next. You’ll enjoy working with like-minded colleagues and you’ll be able to form and get the best out of a small team. You’ll appreciate the autonomy to get things done your way, while recognising the accountability to deliver to the customer. You’ll appreciate the flexibility provided by having a focus on getting the job done, rather than clocking in to the office on set hours and sitting through a lot of meetings. About the Role The day to day element of the role is to evolve the automotive architecture of the next generation of our family of vehicles. This ranges from supporting the upgrade of existing automotive systems to leading the development of entirely new drivelines and chassis. You will lead a small team of engineers, mechanics and supply chain to deliver designs, concepts and prototypes in relatively quick time and then to oversee the maturing of those designs to production ready vehicles. All of this will be done with a firm eye to the customers’ needs and processes. The strategic element of the role is to support the development of our engineering team, oversee new diesel vehicle developments and oversee the development of hybrid/electric platforms. The role will require you to have the technical ability, experience and approach to develop great product in a highly regulated, ultra-low volume production market. It requires the ability to lead a small team of engineers, technicians and supply chain people. You will also need to liaise with the technical leads in our sister company in the UK and customer technical leads throughout Europe, North America and Asia. You will be based with our engineering team in Port Melbourne. Absolute minimum criteria for the role
  • Sufficient experience to do the role
  • Degree qualified in mechanical or similar engineering
  • Have, or the ability to obtain, an Australian Defence Security Clearance
Preferred criteria for the role
  • Demonstrated experience in automotive systems and architecture
  • Demonstrated capability in developing world class product
  • Understanding of Defence Systems Engineering and V&V processes
