Research Engineer MBSE with software development skills
The Simulation and Testing Solutions division (STS) within Siemens PLM, headquartered in Leuven-Belgium, aims to further strengthen and extend its competitive position as a provider of Model Based System Engineering (MBSE) solutions through an assortment of simulation tools, test equipment and V&V methodologies for the design, test and validation of software-intensive safety critical systems. Therefore STS is looking for innovation engineers with excellent software programming skills and special interest in the automotive or aerospace industry to strengthen the MBSE innovation team.
The candidate will join a team of engineers responsible for Go-to-Market and innovation activities in the domain of MBSE with special focus on automotive and aerospace industries among many others”. This expert team engages in funded research projects to further strengthen the STS portfolio for model based system engineering, validating research ideas with lead customers through direct engagement and joint cooperation.
Within the team you will own the technical responsibility for the realization of proof of concept developments enhancing the software platform capabilities of multiple solutions within the STS MBSE portfolio to address new use cases driven from business and research pursuits. Therefor the candidate will have to understand the use case needs and translate these into clean coded features using an agile development methodology like scrum. The candidate will have to be able to explain his work to the application engineers and develop with them an applicative way of demonstrating this feature to customers.
The solution features, if proven effective, can be demonstrated and handed over to the product development teams. Therefor you will collaborate closely with the product software architects, who coordinate the different product development scrum teams to secure integration of your proof of concept activities in the main product release.
The candidate will be hosted in Leuven, Belgium, and will have strong interactions with the applicative team there. The candidate will also work closely with the multinational development and product management teams through travel and conference calls. Willingness to travel is thus expected and required.
