Be the Next Game Changer

Simulation Process Automation and Design Exploration Software Test Engineer

United States, RI, Johnston

Imagine new horizons…


At Dassault Systèmes, we empower our employees and support their passion to change the world and build the future. Let’s design new horizons together with the power of 3DEXPERIENCE virtual universes!


We are seeking a Design-based Simulation Optimization Software Test Engineer to focus on our 3DEXPERIENCE Simulation Process and Optimization applications. As part of the SIMULIA brand’s Quality Engineer and Operations team, you will perform Quality Assessments of these products and ensure that our quality criteria is achieved prior to release.


This position is located in our Johnston, RI location and is hybrid with 3 days in office and 2 days remote.


What will your role be?


The Optimization discipline provides capabilities to automatically run and re-run simulation methods with varying parameters allowing design space exploration and optimization. Multiple simulations can be automatically run to provide a set of data points for comparison and selection.  Within these data sets, optimal design points can be discovered and chosen to reduce weight and cost and increase durability, strength, and lifespan.


To increase the value of simulation investment, the Automation discipline includes capabilities to allow users to develop, store, manage, deploy, share, and replay standard methods for simulation-driven design.


In this role, you will be responsible for testing our Optimization and Automation simulation applications and technologies.


This work includes testing of new features and capabilities, validating and executing industry models and workflows, designing and executing regression tests to ensure existing functionality & performance is not degraded. 


This person will work closely with various members of the software development teams, product management, customer support, and field engineers to ensure our tests are properly capturing various customer workflow scenarios.


The Challenges Ahead 


  • Investigate the relationships between design parameters and their influence on performance objectives, to improve the efficiency of design exploration using Isight technology
  • Systematically explore variations of and trade-offs between design parameters with analytics and visualization to identify the best design that satisfies requirements
  • Assess the influence of variability to reduce the probability of design failures and increase robustness
  • Enable intelligent decision-making collaboratively across the organization
  • Build, save, replay, manage, deploy, and share simulation methods with other users
  • Use validated methods as corporate standard to reduce simulation effort and error and increase efficiency and throughput
  • Explore the design space using automated simulation execution, processing, and analytics
