  • Develop and implement dynamic system modeling capability including coding / scripting
  • Execute multibody simulations for new product development and readiness-to-serve activities
  • Work closely with subsystem / component teams to understand modeling requirements & CTQs (Critical to Quality), for the purposes of correct modeling and to enable others to effectively use and run the simulations
  • Work with the loads / system simulation team for coordinated use and development of modeling capability
  • Develop technical documentation, including but not limited to training material, to empower others to effectively use multibody simulation software
  • Ensure simulations meet accuracy requirements and recommend validation plans
  • Leverage test data from component test, drivetrain test stands and prototype testing
  • Contribute to Performance requirements (through Design Memos)
  • Contribute to relevant design practice(s)


    • Bachelor's Degree in engineering or equivalent knowledge / experience
    • Some experience in multibody simulations or related


    • 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. They must be in possession of them at the time of start hiring. GE will not sponsor this requirement.
