Manager / Lead Engineer - Simulation Based Design

Function Overview

The Simulation Based Design (SBD) team is comprised of technical experts with a deep knowledge of cooking products (Ranges, Cooktops, and Built in Ovens). The primary delivery of the team is a suite of virtual models proven to predict product performance without the need of physical units. The team’s physics-based approach ensures the models are parameterized such that the predictive capability is valid between products with varying form/dimensions. This is achieved through deep technical knowledge, systematic problem solving and extensive lab experimentation to prove correlation and flexibility.

Job Responsibilities

  • The Lead Engineer will work with the global simulation based engineering teams and cooking subsystem teams to create and execute highly physics-based system-performance models (both 1D and 3D) for cooking products to enable virtual prediction of thermal, structure and combustion performance.

  • As a technical leader for the modeling team, it is critical for you to lead project teams and interact with other sub-system teams and system integration teams to develop model portfolios and justify the value added through modeling.

Minimum Requirements

  • Master’s Degree

  • 5+ years of developing physics-based models, utilizing simulation for product development and delivering products to market

Preferred Requirements

  • PhD in Mechanical/Chemical Engineering

  • Experience with modeling thermal system

  • Experience with leading team and project

  • Highly capable in the technical areas of thermodynamics, heat transfer, combustion, and structures/statics

  • Computational Fluid Dynamic (CFD) and Finite Element Analysis (FEA) with Ansys

  • Skilled user for PTC Creo

  • Expert of 1D system model tools (eg. Dymola, Modelica)

  • System engineering experience

  • Ability to work with diverse global teams
