Digital Vehicle Engineer

Polestar - the guiding star.

We are an electric performance brand, determined to improve the society we live in. Our focus is on uncompromised design and technology. Passion and emotion drive us, electricity and innovation drive our cars. Our products are excellent, efficient and entertaining. In Polestar’s future, there is no room for shortcuts, excuses or compromises. We are all in, dedicated on our ambition. Guiding our industry forward through pure, progressive, performance.

At Polestar UK, we believe that maximising the use of virtual tools is the most cost-effective and efficient route to ensuring accurate and robust design & engineering data. Our aim is to interrogate the designs thoroughly in the virtual world to:

Minimise the dependence on expensive and time-consuming physical prototypes Ensure designs are compatible, complete, robust and optimal prior to committing production tooling Improve time-to-market and minimise late design change Ensure manufacturing, attribute and quality targets are met by design & engineering

The Digital Vehicle Series is a process of successive virtual builds and analysis loops of full vehicle Engineering Data (CAD, Non-Geometric Data and Models) as a technique for achieving the above.

The Digital Vehicle Engineer is responsible for;

  • Defining, setting up and running the Digital Vehicle Series at Polestar UK, applying all the rigour and urgency normally seen in physical pre-production builds
  • Defining data submission milestones & data quality targets, coordinating data freeze points, conducting virtual build reviews, logging issues, managing the resolution, and organising report out events
  • Seeking out, researching and implementing virtual tools & methods that maximise the value of build events, represent industry best practice, but still offer value for money
  • Conducting virtual builds to:
    • Assess Design for Manufacture and Design for Assembly (DFM/DFA) suitability
    • Conduct flight path, ergonomic and accessibility assessments
    • Review physical/dimensional compatibility
    • Assess system functionality and attribute level performance
  • Authoring & implementing a design gateway checklist process to set objective measures of compatibility, completeness and quality of vehicle Engineering Data

Overall, the Digital Vehicle Engineer will form a close working relationship with multiple Function Groups to take a shared ownership of completing key vehicle development objectives.
