Job ID 71826BR

This role is a chance to distil your passion for automotive technology into your profession, leading lubricants technology projects in an exciting area for a leading global brand.

About the team
You’ll step into our impressive Technology Centre in Hamburg where around 300 professionals are working on exciting fuels and lubricants challenges in state-of-the-art chemical laboratories, small-scale testing and full engine and vehicle testing facilities.

You’ll join our B2C Lubricants Technology development team – a distributed team, located mainly in the US, Germany and China. The team supports Shell´s business growth by developing and supporting technology-leading PCMOs (Passenger Car Motor Oils) for use with key automotive manufacturers, and by developing differentiated products for our key consumer brands: Pennzoil, Quaker State, Shell Helix and Shell Advance.

What’s the role?
In this dynamic environment, against a backdrop of significant technology change in the automotive industry focusing on regulated emissions reduction, you’ll be responsible for:
• Leading and co-ordinating the broad portfolio of technology activities supporting OEM relationships and business development, with a specific focus on Global Key Accounts with European presence
• Developing and formulating branded and OEM-specified PCMOs
• Working with suppliers to deliver intelligent responses to briefs and differentiated product claims

This isn’t a back-office role, co-ordinating activities and delivering projects – we’ll be relying on you to provide the technological support Shell needs to ensure that we fully exploit opportunities for product differentiation and business growth. As such, you’ll need to cultivate fruitful relationships with project leaders in PCMO Development, fundamental research and Engine Operations, as well as with third-party providers.
