As a Powertrain Engineer, you will be responsible for the design and manufacturing of the drivetrain components that convert electrical energy into me-chanical energy at the wheels. The Powertrain Department is responsible for the entirety of these components.

Ideal profile:


Basic knowledge production processes of gears and milling (and their tolerances), electrical machines, bearings, gears and shafts

Soft skills

Teamwork, communicative, eye for detail


Siemens NX

What are the tasks:

The scope of this specific function encompasses all components that link the wheels to the engines and chassis, such as completing the design of a gearbox requiring optimization of gears, and designing new uprights through utilization of force analysis. Additionally, the individual occupying this role will be accountable for the design, manufacture, and validation of the remaining mechanical elements.
Furthermore, there will be involvement with composite materials during the production process of car-bon rims. A great interest and understanding in the subjects “Machine parts” and “Production Technology” is a great asset to this position.

In this role, your primary focus will be on the mechanical aspects of the battery ensuring it acccommodates the integration of electronics effectively. This is a broad task that involves mechanics and material science with force analysis and composites. 
Maximal performance is accompanied with large heat generation. Your responsibilities extend to overseeing the cooling of battery cells, where Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulations come into play. Utilizing your expertise, you will ensure efficient thermal management of the battery, contributing to the overall performance and reliability of the electric powertrain. Additionally, the cooling system of the motors will be under your purview, emphasizing the importance of maintaining optimal temperatures for these critical components.

Within the department, you will be responsible for research on the development of the drives that convert the DC power of the battery into 3- phase currents and deliver it to the four in-wheel motors. Next to optimizing the existing solution, you will help realize a new, in-house designed package that adds controllability and dramatically reduces the car’s weight.
Alongside the development of the inverters, you will be responsible for the mechanical design of our in-wheel motors. Taking into account the various loads of the application, you must come up with a thermal-effective solution that can be packaged in a compact space.
