About the Role

We are looking for simulation engineers interested in designing elegant solutions to difficult problems in the autonomy and mobility space. Simulation Application Engineers work with external and internal users to develop VehicleSim-based applications and models. Our engineers source valuable feedback from users to effectively drive and influence product direction. At Mechanical Simulation, we encourage engineers to take ownership over technical and product decisions, interact closely with users to collect feedback, and contribute to a thoughtful, dynamic team culture.

At Mechanical Simulation, you will:

  • Develop new applications that can be used and then modified by automotive customers to improve their simulations
  • Collaborate closely with our automotive customers to provide technical support and collect data for new feature development
  • Create thorough documentation for new and existing software applications
  • Test and provide feedback for new versions of our software
  • Work closely with our cross-functional team to develop and conduct customer training remotely and onsite

We're looking for someone who has:

  • A MS in Mechanical Engineering or a BS with relevant industry experience
  • 5+ years of hands-on experience in the automotive industry
  • Experience using simulation software, such as CarSim, Simulink, Simian, or similar tools
  • Evaluated vehicle dynamics behavior at the system level, such as response to driver controls
  • Experience evaluating Advanced Driver Assistance Systems at the system level

Nice to have:

  • Familiarity or experience using our products (CarSim, BikeSim, TruckSim, and SuspensionSim)
  • Experience creating new projects (steering, braking, or other AV/ADAS enabling controllers) using our products and MATLAB/Simulink
  • Ability to program as needed to support automation and integration of multiple software tools
  • Worked with automotive driving simulators and real-time simulation systems, such as DSPACE, Concurrent, NI, and VI-Grade
  • Experience with Unreal Game Engine

Don’t meet every single requirement? If you’re excited about this role but your past experience doesn’t align perfectly with every qualification in the job description, we encourage you to apply anyway. You may be just the right candidate for this or other roles.
