Join SIMULIA – the realistic simulation solutions brand of Dassault Systèmes

SIMULIA provides simulation technologies that allow customers to develop digital twins of their products, and use a numerical representation of their physical aspects. The simulations range from multi-body system (MBD) to structural behavior (FEA) to computational fluid dynamics (CFD) to electromagnetics (EM) and vibro-acoustics (VA). Among those disciplines, SIMULIA develops, based on the Abaqus UFEA technology, the most advanced industrial solutions for structural analysis. Our software tools are used worldwide by engineers in research and development.

Your Mission

You will join our growing Milan-based group of engineers (remote applicants can be considered), a key link in the value chain, connecting customer needs to our solutions. Regular exposure to innovative simulation technologies and professional usage of constantly evolving top-notch simulation tools keeps the role exciting and challenging at the same time. You will be confronted with deep technical challenges, project mgmt. responsibilities and direct customer interaction.

If you have a passion for mechanical engineering and technical computation, this job offers you the opportunity to join a group of leading experts in this industry. You will thrive in a fast-paced, customer-focused, cross-cultural environment, becoming part of one of the best companies in the world (Dassault Systèmes currently ranks #19 on the 2021 World Best Employers list).

What will your role be?

You will work on any initiatives related to Structural Analysis using Abaqus, Wave6, FE-Safe, Tosca and 3DEXPERIENCE and optionally Vibro-Acoustics with Wave6. The focus will be on the Automotive and/or Aerospace and Defense industry, eventually in connection with other simulation disciplines and optimization, and covering the complete process from model build-up, over simulation execution and results analysis to reports presentation.

Your role will be multifaceted and diverse, and you will use your skills and critical sense to:

  • Effectively articulate to customers and prospects the value of SIMULIA solutions, via presentations, demonstrations and technical proofs
  • Collaborate with sales mgmt. as technical opportunity leader in the scouting and technical qualification of new business development opportunities
  • Develop strong leadership to influence the account strategy from an early stage, define strategic growth initiatives and lead their technical implementation as a technical account manager representing the interests of 3DS
