Job Description

We are currently recruiting for an experienced Powertrain Transmission Calibration Engineer - Senior to join our team supporting our client in the Automotive Industry.

DESCRIPTION:

The Transmission Calibration Engineer will be responsible for playing an integral part in developing the customer driving experience as well as optimizing fuel economy. The Transmission Calibrator will work on transmission clutch control and/or drive strategy calibration-related activities.
