ECS Tuning, a worldwide leader in the automotive parts and accessories industry, is looking for a motivated candidate for the R&D Design Engineer. The success of ECS Tuning is driven by an energetic culture of automotive passion, results and an unrelenting determination to succeed. We offer a unique blend of family-owned values with a professional business savvy in a modern and upbeat environment.
Our ideal candidate for the position will possess excellent verbal and written communication skills with a proven ability to listen to instructions, work in a team environment and successfully resolve problems with a positive and upbeat attitude, as well as the ability to work in a fast paced environment. This is a full time opportunity.
An applicant for this position should have a thorough understanding of how automotive systems work prior to joining the ECS Tuning team. This knowledge is imperative when designing new parts or modifying components within a system which will be a core function of this position. Every design is a mixture of compromises and when designing aftermarket parts, we often trade one compromise for another (i.e., a stiffer bushing to gain more control over suspension link position in exchange for increased harshness). The designer needs to be intimately aware of how each component within a system functions to know how changes or upgrades will affect the rest of the system, and ultimately, vehicle safety and performance. If you feel you meet or exceed this level of automotive knowledge please take the time to apply.
