Are you passionate about building cool devices and technologies? The Surface Team
focuses on lighting up Microsoft
experiences with touch first computing. A fundamental part of our strategy is having desirable and powerful devices that enable the experiences people want, and elicit their excitement. Creating
these devices involves a close partnership between hardware and software engineers, designers, and manufacturing. We are currently building the next generation and Surface
and Materials Simulation Engineer
as a Mechanical Simulation Engineer/Specialist
, involved in structural modeling and product development using advanced FEA Mechanical Structural
and Drop Test Simulation
methods and tools, as well as providing the team with advance materials expertise. As a member of the Product Design
team, you will be responsible for FEA
modeling and material characterization. You will be fully integrated with the Product Design
team from the pre-concept to concept stage and beyond. Analyzing
and informing the mechanical design team of structural risks and robustness of product designs. You will be responsible for the correlation and development of your models and techniques. You will also work with cross-functional teams within Microsoft
and with external suppliers to solve design related issues.
assigned program(s), assume ownership of all structural simulation projects. Identify
design risks and advise, guide and steer the mechanical team to implement structural improvements that meet with quality and business objectives.
assigned program(s), drive reliability reviews for every key event from portfolio concepting phase to concept selection.
methods to shorten simulation lead time.
in diagnostic problem solving for test related failures and field failures.
seek opportunities to apply FEA
methods to add value to early concepting activities.
experimental test and measurement activities to validate and refine simulation results.
, analyze and review detailed models for drop test simulation and other structural simulations using HYPERMESH
identify simulation scenarios that will add value to concept selection and direction.
simulation results at design review meetings, highlight risks and structural vulnerabilities and work with the simulation and design team to resolve design issues.
and drive project brainstorming meetings to resolve structural failures and design risks.
simulation models through test and measurement activities (e.g. four point bend testing, impact testing, tensile testing, high strain rate materials testing)
and coach the Design Engineers
for robust design, best practices and in use and development of CAD
integrated simulation tools.
