Imagine new horizons.


Do you have dreams? Do you enjoy challenges? Here at Dassault Systèmes, we empower people with passion to change the world.


Help us reimagine PowerACOUSTICS, a world leader in solving acoustical design challenges through simulation.


The software you build will help engineers and scientists solve acoustics-related product design challenges: for instance, making cars, planes, or HVAC systems quieter than ever before. There will be a consistent emphasis on usability and on facilitating automation, to make design optimization incredibly fast and powerful.


Please note: this is a role for a principal software engineer. Expert C++ skills are required, as is broad experience building commercial software.


The challenges ahead


  • Rewrite the core of PowerACOUSTICS to enable new capabilities.
  • Ensure that every new capability you deliver is functionally correct, easy to use, performant, reliable and maintainable.
  • Accommodate customer needs and implementation concerns.
  • Work effectively in a small team.

Your key success factors


  • A solid grounding in computer science, including object-oriented design, algorithms, design patterns, refactoring, distributed systems, and testing.
  • Expert C++ programming skills (at least C++11, and STL).
  • Demonstrated experience in the development of complex commercial software systems.
  • Intellectual curiosity. Regardless of your background, you enjoy the opportunity to continually learn new technologies and problem domains.


Bonus points for experience with:


  • Large legacy code bases
  • GUI design and development (especially with Qt)
  • Multi-platform development (Linux, Windows and cloud)
  • Cross-product integrations
  • Parallelizing algorithms and code
