GT-SUITE comprises a state-of-the-art systems simulation solver encompassing libraries of fluid dynamic, mechanical, thermal and electromagnetic sub-models plus a sophisticated set of user interfaces including map-based and 3D-based pre- and post-processors. Our software aids in the design and optimization of products in many industries, including Automotive, Agriculture, Off-Highway Vehicles, Aerospace, Power Generation, Marine and Rail, and Industrial Machinery.

Established in 1994, we are a growing and dynamic global company with headquarters based in Westmont, IL.

Position Summary

We are looking for a creative, talented and highly motivated Product Engineer with a background in user interface design, user experience, and business analysis to help our customers get the most out of our software.

Our customers utilize our user interface to develop simulation models that represent physical components or systems (such as an electric vehicle's battery providing power to the electric motors) and validate the accuracy of these models against test data. Once validated, the simulation models can be used to explore countless design scenarios that would otherwise require expensive physical testing. This helps our customers bring new products to the market faster. Our User Experience team supports the development of GT-SUITE's user interface enabling this model building and analysis workflow, covering a variety of user interaction and data analysis capabilities.

A Product Engineer in this team can be expected to receive and prioritize requests from customers, make proposals for features to address these requests, and work with software developers to implement features. During implementation, a Product Engineer will sequence development steps, perform testing, documentation and support customers using this feature. An example project would be designing and coordinating the development of a feature allowing 3D visualization of a vehicle driving on roads with complex turns and elevation changes.

Due to the close linking of our UI with complex physical systems, it is important that the candidate have a very strong technical capability. A deep appreciation for streamlining and automating complex tasks by refining existing features or building new ones is also essential in this role.

This is not a development position, however very close interaction with developers is required.

Job Responsibilities

  • Identify key development opportunities to deliver a best-in-class feature set for our customers
  • Work directly with customers and application engineers to translate customer requests into design requirements and generate feature prototypes to meet those demands
  • Manage multiple development projects at the same time to deliver timely feature updates to GT-SUITE
  • Ensure quality features by testing, documenting, and maintaining UI capabilities
  • Internally and externally address questions and problems with UI features, escalating to developers as needed

Education and Experience

  • BS or BA in Engineering, Computer Science, Human-Computer Interaction disciplines, or other similar technical degrees
  • Recent graduates or those with experience are welcome to apply
  • Minimum GPA of 3.2/4.0

Technology Skills Desired

  • Experience with supporting development of other software used in the engineering industry
  • Experience with PLM Software, such as Siemens TeamCenter or Dassault Enovia/3DS
  • Experience with Agile development methods and associated tools such as JIRA

Other Requirements and Notes:

ALL candidates must be eligible to work in the US for any employer; sponsorship and/or transfer of sponsorship NOT available; no third parties please.

Salary and Benefits

GT offers competitive pay, full health benefits, vacation, sick and personal days, 401K with profit sharing, and a work environment that allows you to grow and prosper.
