    After more than 60 years away from Formula One, Aston Martin returned to the grid in 2021. Based in Northamptonshire, Aston Martin Aramco Cognizant Formula One™ Team has more than 700 passionate people at its heart, making a team with both a rich heritage and a fresh perspective – bringing new energy to the sport with a determination to shake up the order and compete at the sharp end.

    The Aston Martin era represents the beginning of a new journey for us, but the racer’s attitude and can-do approach remain central pillars in the team’s philosophy. The focus is always on improving performance and delivering results. With fresh investment and energy, the stage is set to build on Aston Martin’s rich history in motorsport and establish Aston Martin Aramco Cognizant Formula One™ Team as a competitive force in the years ahead.

    To succeed on this mission, the team is looking for talented individuals who share our passion for racing and hunger for competition. It’s a stimulating and rewarding place to work, with pure racing at the core of everything we do. We are building for a strong future and every member of the team will play an important role in our success.

    We are a brave and united team who value authenticity, honesty, and are never afraid to question conventions. We embrace these values in ways that reflect our modern world. If you share our racer’s spirit and want to contribute to the next chapter in Aston Martin’s glorious history, please apply and join one of the most exciting projects in Formula One.

    An exciting opportunity exists for a Software Engineer to join our Performance Simulation Group.

    The role will be focussed on developing the key software infrastructure that underpins Aston Martin Aramco Cognizant Formula One™ Team’s cutting-edge Performance Simulation suite.

    To contribute directly to vehicle performance, our simulations need to enable Performance Engineers in multiple departments across the Team to understand how to improve lap time.

    To do this you’ll enable our engineers to develop simulation code that is fast, reliable, robust, and scalable for a diverse array of target platforms (e.g., desktop (Windows), HPC cluster (Linux) and real-time hardware (RTOS)).

    You’ll work alongside Vehicle Modelling Engineers within the Performance Simulation department, as well as interacting with other key stakeholders such as the Performance Software Group, Vehicle, Tyre and Aero Performance groups, and the Simulator Development team to deliver the widescale simulation capability across the Team.

    Our preferred candidate will:

    Understand the software requirements for scalable simulation build and deployment infrastructure.

    Optimise auto-generated C/C++ code for maximum performance in both build and execution time for different target platforms.

    Keep abreast of languages, tools or practices that may enhance the simulation build pipeline and performance

    Define and develop software development best practises for the Performance Simulation department
