•    Jaguar Land Rover continues global hunt for new software engineering talent

•    Summer undergraduate placements, bursaries and postgraduate jobs across the world

•    Aspiring engineers can fast-track their applications through Jaguar Land Rover’s portal:

•    Campaign supported by Panasonic Jaguar Racing and its mission ‘Race to Innovate’, inspiring the engineers of the future

Jaguar Land Rover is inspiring the next generation of software engineers by helping them find placements and jobs.

Following the success of the companies coding challenge in 2017, the business has announced it will be fast-tracking applications for undergraduate and postgraduate placements for computer science, electronics or software engineering students to work on Jaguar Land Rover’s ACES strategy – Autonomous, Connected, Electrified and Shared ¬– in the UK, Ireland and China. Postgraduate opportunities are also available in these regions and also the USA.

Summer placements with bursaries for undergraduates offer valuable experience on industry-leading projects. Talented students wanting to electrify their career prospects should apply via

The campaign is being supported by Panasonic Jaguar Racing through its commitment to electric motorsport. The first premium manufacturer to enter the ABB FIA Formula E Championship, it has also launched the Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY – the world's first single-make race series for production-spec electric cars.

Gorillaz founding member Noodle continues to support the campaign for new talent. The Panasonic Jaguar Racing ambassador fronted a code breaking challenge through a mixed-reality app to uncover new software engineering talent.

To date there has been in excess of 220,000 app downloads, with 555 completed challenges and 32 entrants have passed or are in discussion with the software team for future roles. Jaguar Land Rover made its first hire through the app in September 2017.

As the automotive industry accelerates towards autonomous driving, connectivity and electrification, there’s a greater need to find future engineers who will help design and develop the future of electrical systems.

 Up to 2020, Jaguar Land Rover has recruited over 2,400 young people on its graduate and apprentice programme in the last five years and to fulfil the need to transform to clean, safe and smart technologies, will continue to recruit people with engineering and technical skills.

Successful entrants will apply their technical expertise to design software for future Jaguar Land Rover vehicles. The advanced software systems include everything from electrical architecture, cyber security and functional safety, to achieve class-leading infotainment, cloud connected features and the integration of consumer electronics technologies.

James Barclay, Team Director, Panasonic Jaguar Racing, said: “A key aim of Panasonic Jaguar Racing’s mission – Race to Innovate – is to inspire and engage with a new generation of talented young engineers who are interested in developing the cars of the future. Technological learnings from our on-track performance play a key role in Jaguar Land Rover’s road car development and we are right behind this new global initiative.”

Alex Heslop, Jaguar Land Rover Director, Electrical, Electronics and Software Engineering, said: “The all new Jaguar I-PACE, Jaguar’s first all-electric SUV, was launched earlier this month and Jaguar Land Rover has committed that from 2020 all new product lines will be available with an electrified option.

“Attracting talented young engineers is crucial to our development and we welcome all applicants. The undergraduate and postgraduate placements are vital to the company and provide young engineers with real-world experience in the midst of a fast-paced changing industry.”
