We want to change the course towards an interconnected and cleaner maritime future and are constantly on the lookout for future-oriented talent to join our team and to work towards enabling sustainable societies through innovation in technology and services - together. Are you ready to jump onboard?


We are now looking for an Engine Expert to join in our growing Fuel Injection Systems team, working for a better future. We are a part of Wärtsilä’s recognized Research & Development organization, and constantly looking for new talents to join our Team.
The preferred location for the position is in Vaasa, Finland.
About the position:
In this position, your work will include participation in the development projects of fuel injection equipment for new sustainable fuels, and also for traditional fuels to support engine development in Wärtsilä. You will coordinate fuel injection development projects with external suppliers and internal customers like laboratory test teams and other Expert Teams. In addition, there will be tasks related to 1D-modelling of hydromechanical systems which will bring you in close co-operation with Wärtsilä Analysis team. This is an important role to maintain R&D leadership in fuel injection, which is a key component area in the Wärtsilä future strategy with new sustainable fuels.
In this role, you might be starting your day with running a simulation model of a Fuel Injector for alternative fuels, later that day you could be discussing with supplier about the details of the same Injector. You will not be working on this alone, even though the work requires a high level of independency, as you will have the support from other designers and experts.
