Job Description

If you are really driven, have tonnes of initiative and are excited by complex engineering problems, you will really enjoy working at Simpact!

We are looking for an enthusiastic and reliable individual willing to grow in a friendly but challenging engineering environment. Relevant training will be provided based on the individual's starting skill base. The ideal candidate will soon learn to work autonomously, drive and support our projects with limited supervision. Social lunches and team-building events will be held regularly to encourage full integration in our seamless team. 

CAE Engineer in the field of product development using experimental testing and numerical methods. Your role will include;

  • working alongside other junior and senior team members on engineering projects.
  • Applying engineering skills/experience to produce design recommendations.
  • Assisting with our R&D focused activities including liaising with relevant customers and academic partners.

Your work will include;

  • Identification and interpretation of mechanical load requirements of a system, component or part.
  • Interpretation of design definitions into analysis models and FEA model build.
  • Technical CAD design.
  • Material mechanical property characterisation from laboratory experiments such as quasi-static and dynamic testing.
  • Operation of our other CAE hardware such as high-speed camera and impact test facilities.
  • Building and testing of prototypes.

For the above, you will follow the processes as laid down in the Simpact ISO9001:2015 Quality Management System.

We are keen to hear from individuals who understand and appreciate the difference between working for a pure engineering consultancy as opposed to a CAE software house or a mainstream OEM. This is your chance to stand out and make a difference on our World-Class engineering projects.
