SALARY: £37,000 - £45,000
POSTING END DATE: 11.12.2020

Dreaming for tomorrow is about more than ideas and ambitions. We’re already building the next generation of vehicles, using repurposed and brand-new technology and techniques. We’re doing more than dream, we’re creating the future of mobility and automotive for years to come.





The journey to an ACES (Autonomous, Connected, Electrified, Shared) future is enabled by vehicles that can adapt over time and that are highly available. The successful candidate will join the Diagnostics and Quality team (part of Product Engineering) on that journey through the roll out of advanced over-the-air functionalities. Software Over the Air (SOTA) was first launched on the 2020 Land Rover Defender and is being rolled out across to all vehicles with the aim of eventually supporting all of the vehicle’s ECUs. Features Over the Air (FOTA) will allow the user to add new functionality to their vehicle as it becomes available or as they need it (on a subscription basis, for example). Connected Diagnostics Services (diagnostics over-the-air) will support of remote prognosis, diagnosis and even correction of erroneous vehicle behaviour without the need to visit service and the long-term monitoring of whole vehicle fleet performance.


The successful candidate will:


  • Maintain requirements and architecture baselines.
  • Document and track the outcome of Change Control Board.
  • Produce Product Release Notes for software releases.
  • Produce Change Control board metrics and minutes.
  • Liaise with commercial / project team to cascade changes to suppliers.




The SOTA & CDS Change Management Engineer will report to the SOTA & CDS System Design Manager and be part of a multi-disciplinary systems engineering team which are responsible for the functional and behavioural definition of OTA functionality for current and future vehicle architectures. In this role you'll be responsible for maintaining the baselines for SOTA and CDS requirements and architecture and for gathering the information required to generate the product release notice for each software release – such as requirements baseline, architecture baseline and test results. The SOTA & CDS Change Management Engineer will attend the SOTA and CDS Change Control Board and ensure that the outcome of the meeting is documented and that changes to the requirements and architecture baseline are maintained.
