Role Summary:
The Lead Engineer will develop, validate, and maintain multibody dynamics modeling capability and also use multibody simulations with the necessary level of fidelity to ensure reliable and robust wind turbine designs. The development of multibody dynamics simulation capability will entail coding/scripting work done in the context of using a commercial multibody simulation software as core of the modeling/design system.

Essential Responsibilities:


  • Develop, implement, and maintain multibody dynamics modeling capability including coding/scripting
  • Execute multibody simulations for new product development and readiness-to-serve activities
  • Work closely with design/disciplinary teams to understand modeling requirements for the purposes of correct modeling and to enable others to effectively execute simulations
  • Verify that the multibody dynamics modeling capability meet accuracy requirements
  • Leverage test data from component test, drivetrain test stands and prototype testing
  • Develop technical documentation, including but not limited to training material, to empower others to effectively use the multibody dynamics modeling capability
  • Contribute to customer facing technical documents
  • Contribute to relevant design practice(s)

    Qualifications/Requirements:

    • Bachelor of Science Degree in Engineering
    • Significant engineering experience (can include experience in graduate school in a relevant field of study or industry experience)
    • Demonstrated direct experience in executing multibody dynamics simulations in the Simpack (preferred) software or similar software (e.g., Adams, SAMCEF, etc.).
    • Demonstrated experience in code development (coding/scripting work)
    • Ability to work in a matrix organizational environment
    • System or product-level mindset

    ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS:

    • EU Work Permit if hired in Spain

    Nonnational candidates are responsible to know the minimum documentation requirements to be able to be contracted in country: NIE- Social Security Affiliation Number in Spain (NAF) and Bank Account in Spain.
