Mission of the Position


We are looking for talented team members to be a part of a dynamic team looking to push boundaries, innovate, and are passionate about being a part of the transformation from traditional powertrains to electrification.

The Systems Simulation Engineer is responsible for system level simulation from initial concept phase all the way through launch, for electrified powertrains. Experience and detailed knowledge of 400-800V eDrive technology is essential.

As an intermediate level engineer, the engineer will work independently with limited supervision to evaluate, select, and apply standard engineering techniques, procedures, and criteria using knowledge and judgement to make adaptations and modifications. 

As a senior level engineer, the engineer will independently perform a wide variety of complex/advanced engineering work to include planning, designing and carrying out work assignments, often serving as a technical authority of the department with little to no supervision.  The engineer will mentor and guide less experienced team members.

Key Responsibilities



  • Responsible for System level simulation from initial concept phase through launch of electrification systems including but not limited to; Drivetrain model, Tolerance, Transient behavior simulation, System efficiency, Drive cycle, Thermal system, CFD, vehicle dynamics and EMAG. 
  • Responsible for carrying out simulations of eDrive Systems and making proposals for system architecture, working closely with the Systems Architect and Systems Engineer(s). 
  • Support eDrive projects from initial quote through to system concept development and serial production, when required.
  • Cooperate with the global electrification team to find robust system solutions and ensure clear and concise simulation models. 
  • Develop and maintain a responsive and cooperative working relationship with internal and external customers.
