Every company has a history. We have legacy and have been building it since 1983. Here at Ilmor, we pride ourselves in delivering the best high-performance engines to all of our clients, providing them with design, development, testing, manufacturing, and conquering racetracks of IndyCar, ARCA, NASCAR, SRX and more.
When we say we deliver the best, we deliver results. We’ll let our resume speak for itself: 21 Indianapolis 500 Wins, 335+ IndyCar Wins, 20 IndyCar Drivers Championships, and 22 IndyCar Manufacturers Championships… all in under 40 years.
Having made a name for ourselves at the most elite tier of the racing world, we keep pushing our comfort zone, even out of the roll-cage and into a life jacket: we've brought the same precision engineering to the water. Our marine designs, methodical testing, and advanced manufacturing have resulted in marine engines chosen by world-renowned boating manufacturers such as Mastercraft, Formula, Stancraft and Aviara.
But we’re still not satisfied, still kicking in the deep end with no intention to head towards the ladder. We have to see how far we can go. Join our elite Marine Engineering team here at Ilmor with phenomenal leadership from our Marine Chief Engineer, Jon Rayner.
Focused on Marine Service/Warranty and mechanical design projects, no two days will ever be alike. You will be responsible for leading a best practice warranty management process to lead warranty resolution, identify tends, and support field visits.
