Aston Martin Jobs at United Kingdom | Germany



Aston Martin Lagonda Limited is a British manufacturer of luxury sports cars and grand tourers. It was founded in 1913 by Lionel Martin and Robert Bamford.

The firm became associated with luxury grand touring cars in the 1950s and 1960s, and with the fictional character James Bond following his use of a DB5 model in the 1964 film Goldfinger.

The company has had a chequered financial history, including bankruptcy in the 1970s, but has also enjoyed long periods of success and stability, including under the ownership of David Brown, from 1947 to 1972 and of the Ford Motor Company from 1994 to 2007.

In March 2007, a consortium of investors, led by David Richards, purchased 92% of Aston Martin for £479 million, with Ford retaining a £40 million stake. David Richards became chairman of Aston Martin. In December 2012, the Italian private equity fund Investindustrial signed a deal to buy 37.5% of Aston Martin, investing £150 million as a capital increase.

Power Train  Engineer
Roles
The role of Product Development is to manage the entire new product introduction process from the concept planning through to launch – all within the umbrella of the Aston Martin Product Creation System (AMPCS). At the heart of this process is the detailed design and development of the product – from model year upgrades to complete new vehicle lines. Powertrain comprises the following areas: V12 and V8 engines, Auto and Manual Transmissions, complete Driveline system, Exhaust System, Induction System, Cooling Systems, Fuel Tank and system, Thermal Protection, HVAC System, and Calibration for Engine and Transmissions including performance, fuel economy, driveability and emissions. 

The Powertrain department is responsible for designing, developing and delivering these systems to all new model programmes. A graduate powertrain engineer once fully qualified would typically be part of a cross functional team comprising engineering, test and development, purchasing, quality and programme management, ultimately delivering a powertrain system to a new car model or working on one of the more specific areas of test and development or calibration.
