A fantastic opportunity has arisen to be an active member of the JLR Base Engines “Design and Release” team for all Gasoline and Diesel internal combustion engines, designed in the UK for global manufacture into worldwide markets.

The Product Owner is responsible for maximising the value delivered by a squad of component engineers by managing and prioritizing the team’s backlog, connecting with internal customers, supporting the team and contributing to the vision and roadmap.

Some of the components delivered by the Sensors and Actuators squad include electronic throttles/valves, solenoids, temperature / pressure / position sensors and ignition system (coils and spark plugs).

Delivering on plan with clear direction, demonstrating a clear appreciation of attributes and programme deliverables on quality, cost, weight, and function are critical aspects of the role.

You will lead and coordinate cross functional CCDS team including purchasing, design, validation, STA, supplier and manufacturing to ensure all APQP deliverables are fulfilled with agreed status by the CCDS team. You will lead the delivery to the program gateways by achieving quality, cost, timing, function and weight requirements.

Other responsibilities will include, but are not limited to: Manage and coordinate validation of system/component in accordance with technical compliance plan, manage and own failure mode avoidance including the foundation documents such as DFMEA, Quality History report, P-Diagram as well as Prevent Recurrence actions. You will need to demonstrate precision, control and integrity for the development of your system/component using Evidence Based Engineering Report.
