About the position


For many fans of Formula One, the sport exists between lights and chequered flag on a Sunday afternoon. It begins and ends with the exploits of the drivers on the track. But this is merely the tip of the spear. The reality of modern F1 is that of a complex and intertwined operation, every part of which needs to perform near its limit if success is to be achieved. From the pit crew searching for the ultimate repeatable pit stop, to the inspiration of the designers, the application of engineers and the herculean efforts of an army of fabricators and machinists. Much of our success is thanks to the diversity of thought and spectrum of skill sets held within the team, our ability to recognise unique contributions from individual team members is just a part of why we love what we do.

Job Description

We have an exciting opportunity for a Powertrain CFD Engineer to be a part of our highly skilled Red Bull Technology team supporting the development of our Powertrain.

  • Have a detailed and methodical approach to solving complex problems.

It would be advantageous if you also had experience using:

  • Commercial CFD software for Powertrain development, in particular StarCCM+ and Converge CFD.
  • CAD in particular Siemens NX.
  • Linux operating system, Bash and Java.


Not only is this a fantastic CFD Engineer role, but it is also a fantastic team to work with.
