  2. Work in a multidisciplinary environment where collaboration is important.


  • Participate in the development of recreational products by leading FEA and durability analysis of the frame and vehicle components development.
  • Preparing and executing simulations meshes and models in 1D or 3D to represent the reality of the studied system.
  • Simplify complex problems while keeping a good representation of the reality in order to optimize simulation time.
  • Collaborate with engineering, design, laboratory and mechanical shop in every step of the product development.
  • Identify and analyse the technical needs of the project Be able to target missing information to perform reliable numerical simulation and proactively get the needed clarifications.
  • Participate in defining performance criteria, build a validation plan to achieve them and follow its execution while meeting deadlines.
  • Identify risks and contingency plans associated with the work in progress.
  • Balance analysis dept versus desired results on the final product.
  • Based on simulation results, give recommendations on the technical direction to take by considering the pros and cons of the various solutions.
  • Participate or lead the experimental testing associated with the proposed technical solutions. Adjust the numerical model as needed to improve the methodology for future projects.
  • Build strong relationships with team members to grow professional relationships essential to long term success.
  • Manage collaborators’ expectations in an environment where simulation limits are not fully understood.
  • Perform a technological watch and a continuous improvement on the methods and software’s used.


  • Master or PhD degree in mechanical engineering with 3 relevant years of experience in structural predictive engineering or 5 years of relevant experience.
  • Excellent knowledge of structural numerical analysis in linear, non-linear and dynamics, fatigue and damage of structures using a wide range of standard manual and computer methods.
  • Experience in structural design, weight management and structural optimization.
  • Working with a mainstream FEA softwares: Nastran, Optistruct, Radioss, etc.
  • Experience with nCode Design Life or other similar durability analysis software.
  • Proficiency in CAD software, preferably Catia v5.
  • Knowledge of fatigue, damage tolerance and structural inspection methodologies.
  • Good teamwork with a positive attitude.
  • You learn rapidly and have a strong curiosity.
  • Shows creativity and innovation in your work.
  • Are familiar with the operation and construction of mechanical systems for motor vehicles.
  • Excellent capacity for analysis, synthesis and concise report preparation skills.
  • Self-motivated, capable of working on multiple projects with minimal supervision in a multi discipline environment.
  • Knowledge of manufacturing techniques (machining, molding, forming, etc) is an asset.
  • Are fluent in English and French (spoken and written).
  • Programming/scripting experience (nCode, Matlab, Python, VBA, etc).
  • Basics experience working with LINUX operating systems for using high computing cluster is preferred.
