Apply Now Job ID 5113109003 Date posted 05/19/2022

Supernal is at the forefront of creating emerging mobility solutions that will foster the development of human-centered cities. We are designing a completely new electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) aircraft tailored to the mobility needs of future cities. This allows passengers a seamless intermodal journey that safely transports them to their final destination. We fuse research in autonomy, robotics, aviation and services to define a new category of mobility for the world’s communities. We believe in creative thinking and collaboration to help build a better mobility experience for everyone, improving people’s ability to move – whether for work or play.

What we do:

The Battery CAE Engineer is responsible for building engineering analytical tools leading to the design and optimization of a safe and high-performance battery system. The position collaborates closely with engineers from multi-functional teams of battery cell, battery system, battery management system, battery control and thermal.

What you can do:

  • Develop CAE simulation tools to support battery system structural design and analysis
  • Develop CFD models to support battery system thermal design and analysis
  • Develop models for structural, thermal, and electrical analysis at battery cell level
  • Design testing methods and performing necessary tests to validate developed models
  • Develop in-house analytical tools to perform sophisticated CAE simulations
  • Using design models to support with creating component’s requirements for technical documents such as specifications and DFMEA
  • Work with battery system engineer to conduct optimization studies to provide battery system solutions that meet development’s targets

What you can contribute:

  • Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering/Physics/Applied Mathematics/other relevant Engineering field
