Simcenter Madymo is the worldwide standard software for analyzing and optimizing occupant and pedestrian safety designs. Using Simcenter Madymo, researchers and engineers can model, thoroughly analyze and optimize safety designs early in the development process. The Madymo Workspace component is the pre- and postprocessing module, offering the user access to the powerful features and various results of the underlying solver module.

To strengthen the team and to validate new functionality for our Madymo software, we have an immediate full-time opening for an experienced Software Test and Application Engineer. We are looking for a motivated candidate who can represent the customer in our software usage and testing process.

Job Responsibilities:

As part of the SCRUM team you will review functional requirements, help translate domain knowledge to software specifications, and create test cases to ensure that overall quality is delivered.  You will help identify, analyze and document software defects and software behavior that is inconsistent with defined user stories.

As Software Test and Application Engineer you will be responsible for the analysis, reporting and communication of test results. You will assist in evaluating product defects reported by our customers and create, maintain and schedule automated test cases.
