JOB TITLE: Senior Motion Systems Architect

SALARY: £48,000 - £55,000

LOCATION: Gaydon, Warwickshire

POSTING END DATE: 31.01.2019


We’re re-examining our vehicles and what a vehicle means in the emerging world of automation, connectedness, electrification and the shared economy. New ideas, new technology, and new approaches to mobility are our business. Join a team of next generation thinkers.




Advanced Control Systems, steering, suspension, brakes, wheels and tyres provide an exceptional driving experience. Every chassis component needs be honed to perfection which takes all kinds of people, from designers to project managers.


As the Senior System Architect, you’ll be a systems engineering evangelist while architecting complex distributed systems. You’ll also collaborate and lead negotiations with stakeholders, including documenting deviations to system requirements with the system owners, changes to the domain logical architecture with the domain architects and updating subsystem requirements with the subsystem owners.


You’ll coordinate a small team of highly technical system engineers and architects, as well as  a wider team of cross-functional specialists across the business and ensure the overall design objectives of systems they are responsible for are achieved. The role provides a challenging but highly rewarding opportunity, offering exposure to nearly all facets of vehicle development.




As an experienced Senior System Architect, you’ll need to demonstrate extensive skills in designing whole system architectures, including System of Systems (SoS) from concept readiness to production, along with experience in:


•    Leading a team of engineers
•    Systems engineering methods and tools
•    Engaging stakeholders as well as utilising your excellent communication and presentation skills


You’ll ideally be educated to degree level in a relevant engineering subject and have a full, valid UK driving licence as there will be occasional travel to other sites.


Jaguar Land Rover considers that this role does not meet the criteria to be considered within the Home Office Shortage Occupation list.  Therefore, Jaguar Land Rover will not support an application for visa sponsorship and all applicants for this role must have an unrestricted right to work for an indefinite period in the UK.




Bring all this to the home of premium innovation, and you’ll find the opportunities to further your career with a world-class team, a discounted car purchase and lease scheme for you and your family, membership of a competitive pension plan and performance related bonus scheme. All this and more makes Jaguar Land Rover the perfect place to continue your journey. 


Jaguar Land Rover is committed to equal opportunities for all.






Jaguar Land Rover has long pushed the boundaries of technology. Now digital innovation lies at the heart of our business – because it is central to our future strategy. We are focused on the development of electric, connected and driverless cars that will reshape the whole industry. Joining us is your chance to help redefine who we are and where we’re going.
