On behalf of my client in the Munich area, I am seeking an experienced Avionics Test Engineer (HIL) to join their team for at least 12 months (likely to extend beyond this date).

With a competitive salary of around €90,000 per annum + benefits, this is an excellent opportunity to further your career as well as playing a key role in future technologies regarding air travel!

The Team

  • The System Testing team is responsible for various disciplines covering component, system, and whole aircraft tests. It is set up in three divisions: Testing, Test Management and Test Operations. The team design and execute tests that facilitate certification, development, and research for the technology areas: Propulsion Systems, Energy Storage, Structures, Environmental Tests, and Hardware in the Loop (HIL).
  • You will report directly the Team Lead HIL and will be working on System Integration, open and closed loop Hardware In the Loop (HIL) simulation of aircraft systems, as well as data acquisition (DAQ) set up for the tests.
  • As HIL Engineer you will be responsible for the design and integration of sophisticated test rigs, implementation of semi/fully automated test cases within a system integration and testing environment.

Your role
Design and develop HIL test benches/rigs for the system and sub-system level tests of aircraft.
