Rolls-Royce has hooked up with Formula Pi to create a one-day RaceYourCode event. “RaceYourCode was conceived by Rolls-Royce as a fun, innovative way to challenge the finest digital thinkers and coders around the world,” reads the welcome page.
“As a successful applicant, you’ll be racing autonomous, Raspberry Pi-powered robots around a track as fast as you possibly can,” the competition entry page continues.
Rolls-Royce is looking for the next generation of engineers to work in the famous company.
“Data has been essential to our business for 20 years,” says Andrew Hutson-Smith, Director of Business Development and Innovation. “We’re looking to find people who are analytically minded but creative,” explains Andrew. “It’s quite a rare talent, actually.”
Rolls-Royce also wants people who can “understand the data,” adds Andy Appleyard, Global Resource and Capability Manager, Digital.
