Role Summary/Purpose

The Senior Engineer will develop, validate, and maintain multibody dynamics modeling capability and provide leadership/mentorship for the use multibody simulations with the necessary level of fidelity to ensure reliable and robust wind turbine designs. The development of multibody dynamics simulation capability will entail coding/scripting work done in the context of using a commercial multibody simulation software as core of the modeling/design system.

Essential Responsibilities

  • Develop, implement, and maintain multibody dynamics modeling capability including coding/scripting
  • Mentor lead engineers developing multibody dynamics modeling capability and the end users of that capability
  • Lead interactions with design/disciplinary teams to understand modeling requirements for the purposes of correct modeling and to enable others to effectively execute simulations
  • Verify that the modeling capability meet accuracy requirements and recommend validation plans
  • Identify and leverage test data from component test, drivetrain test stands and prototype testing
  • Direct and develop the development of technical documentation, including but not limited to training material, to empower others to effectively use the multibody dynamics modeling software capability
  • Lead the development of customer facing technical documents
  • Define best practices and document in design practice(s)


  • Master of Science Degree in Engineering
  • Strong engineering experience (can include experience in graduate school in a relevant field of study or industry experience)
  • Some direct experience developing multibody dynamics simulation capability in the Simpack (preferred) software or similar software (e.g., Adams, SAMCEF, etc.).
  • Demonstrated experience using multibody dynamics simulation software with models of varying fidelity
  • Demonstrated experience working in a matrix organizational environment
  • System or product-level mindset


  • EU Work Permit if hired in Spain

Desired Characteristics

  • Proficiency in scientific computing languages and frameworks (e.g. Python, Fortran, etc.)
  • Experience in modeling wind turbines using the Simpack (preferred) software or similar software (ADAMS, SAMCEF, etc.)
  • Experience with finite-element modeling such as but not limited to ANSYS
  • Experience with CAD software such as but not limited to Unigraphics (NX), Catia, Solid Works
  • Wind turbine engineering experience
  • Demonstrated ability to work with colleagues remotely located and across time zones
  • Strong technical aptitude
  • Strong oral and written communication skills
  • Strong interpersonal skills
