Thermal Simulation Engineer

Computer and Mathematical




Redmond, Washington, United States

Reality Labs is seeking an experienced Thermal Simulation Engineer with a strong background in modeling, analyzing, and developing solutions for a wide variety of thermal systems and Multiphysics systems. Our ideal candidate approaches complex problems with an analytical mindset firmly rooted in engineering first principles. They are unafraid to challenge underlying assumptions and are dedicated to delivering solutions in addition to insight. We want someone who works well in a highly collaborative, cross-functional environment, can drive clarity from ambiguity, communicates complex concepts clearly, and is unafraid to tackle new challenges. If you are passionate about using your analytical skills to push the boundaries of what is possible, we want you on our team.

Required SkillsThermal Simulation Engineer Responsibilities:
  • Deliver simulation and analysis-based solutions to thermal management problems.
  • Collaborate with designers, engineers, and other cross-functional partners to identify risks, strategically create simulations, plan and conduct validation testing, and deliver objective, data-driven engineering guidance and solutions.
  • Contribute to the creation of product requirements and technical specifications.
  • Provide data and technical guidance for product architecture development efforts.
  • Organize and lead thermal design reviews, solution brainstorms, and implementation efforts.
  • Drive root cause efforts and design of experiments to resolve problems.
  • Present results in a form actionable by cross-functional team members and leadership.
  • Advance team capabilities using new methods, materials, technologies, and software tools.
Minumum QualificationMinimum Qualifications:
  • 3+ years experience architecting products around passive and active thermal solutions.
