If you’re ambitious, driven and team-spirited, this is your opportunity to build a career as a Lead Mechanical Architect

Purpose of the job

The lead mechanical architect is accountable of the vehicle arrangement definition and the mechanical interfaces management across the Product Family (PF).

He / she relies on mechanical architects working on clearly defined and separated technical scope. He / She ensures the team development on mechanical architecture knowledge, bring them up to a more functional view by aiming standardization.

Within the Product Family, he / she is in charge of the delivery of mechanical architecture scope relying on his team of mechanical architects, by :

Ensuring that requirements, resulting from functional architecture analysis and affecting vehicle mechanical architecture, are well cascaded, understood and implemented in the design

Defining vehicles arrangement, their related layouts and volume allocations for the main sub-systems

Defining a mechanical architecture to comply with vehicle performance requirement such as acoustics and vibration, aerodynamics, industrial design and passenger flow, human factors and ergonomics, passenger and crew evacuation, vehicle gauging, vehicle dynamics, weight, etc.

Leading mechanical concept definition and architectures harmonization across the Product Family

Managing variability of the design with a standardization and modular approach

Leading the team to manage mechanical interfaces of sub systems on vehicle

Ensuring compliance with Center of Expertise (CoE) directives, with Metier guidelines and with Product Family directives

Verifying mechanical architecture deliveries
