Save to shortlist Saved to shortlist Apply now

At The Mercedes-AMG PETRONAS Formula One Team, a group of passionate and determined people work to design, develop, manufacture and race the cars driven by seven-time World Champion Lewis Hamilton and rising star George Russell.

As an Industrial Placement student in our Enterprise Architecture Team, you will be a valued member of the IT Department, bringing your analytical nature and high standards to a range of exciting, real-world challenges.

Why Mercedes Formula One?

We asked the team's placement students why they decided to apply for Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 Team after watching its Gradcracker Webinar last year.

Working collaboratively across the IT Department, your ideas and skills will make a tangible contribution to the performance of our team, both on and off the track, working to analyse and manage the data we produce and make useful recommendations to inform effective decision making.

During this placement you will have the opportunity to work with industry leading technologies in fields such as data lifecycle management, data ownership, architecture, and governance.

Skills you could gain during your placement include:

  • How to design and implement polices and processes to effectively manage our data
  • An understanding of how data lifecycle management impacts our technology roadmaps
  • Driving technical and process improvement by identifying and communicating new technologies, good practices and behaviours
  • Producing data visualisations, analysis and reporting against a set of defined key performance indicators
  • The ability to plan and manage projects involving cross functional teams 

Candidate profile:

You will have a strong background in computer science with a good understanding of data analysis concepts and principles. You will be capable of working both independently and as part of a team, have a learning mindset, good organisation and problem-solving skills and a fine attention to detail. 

It does not matter whether or not you already have an interest in motorsport: we are looking for candidates who are passionate about reaching their full potential and are excited about constantly learning. Whatever your background, we believe that you will find your placement with us a memorable and enriching experience.

Flexibility in hours and approach is required, along with a ‘can do’, ‘team-playing’ attitude and the ability to work to strict deadlines under minimal supervision.


We offer a competitive package including bonus, free on-site gym, subsidised restaurant facilities, generous discounts from our sponsors, Christmas & Summer parties.

We are highly focused on equal opportunities and pride ourselves on our strong, inclusive values and culture.

We've signed the Gradcracker feedback pledge.

(This means that we will supply feedback if requested after an interview.)
