Discover your career with us at Siemens Digital Industries Software!

At Siemens Digital Industries Software, we blur the boundaries between industry domains by integrating the virtual and physical, hardware and software, design and manufacturing worlds. With the rapid pace of innovation, digitalization is no longer tomorrow’s idea. We take what the future promises tomorrow and make it real for our customers today. Where today meets tomorrow. Our culture encourages creativity, welcomes fresh thinking and focuses on growth, so our people, our business, and our customers can achieve their full potential.

Simcenter STAR-CCM+ provides CAE solutions across industry sectors such as aerospace, automotive, nuclear and chemical processing. Simcenter STAR-CCM+ scales for High-Performance Computing (HPC) where solutions are provided at greater speed on parallel processes over highly distributed computing facilities. To achieve this, Simcenter STAR-CCM+ is continually tested in HPC environments such that our customers will exceed their HPC simulation goals. Testing and verifying the performance of Simcenter STAR-CCM+ in these HPC environments is a complex task and one that presents tough and exciting challenges as platforms evolve. Also, as new application areas emerge, developers introduce new software to enhance simulation technologies which presents additional challenges for the ever growing demands for HPC simulations.

We are looking for a motivated undergraduate, in the second or third year of their Bachelor’s degree, with a strong interest in High Performance Computing, preferably in the field of CAE engineering.


You will get the opportunity to:

  • Create end to end HPC test cases for real world industrial applications that include internal combustion engines, gas turbines and electric machines. Tests include importing CAD, geometry manipulation, meshing, solving physics and results postprocessing.
  • Create HPC performance test cases for CFD and FEA simulations to analyze new software features
  • Run, analyze and optimize existing performance test cases
  • Archive test cases and document tests


  • Currently enrolled at university, in the 2nd or 3rd year, pursuing a Bachelor’s degree in Computer / Mechanical / Chemical / Aerospace Engineering, or other closely related field.
  • Demonstrate experience, or keen interest, in high performance computing
  • Experience running CFD or FEA simulations. Preferably using STAR-CCM+
  • Experience using performance profiling tools to identify performance bottlenecks and problems. Knowledge of both Linux and Windows clusters is preferred
  • Work effectively remotely, both independently and in teams.
  • Ability to analyze and document results and present to an audience.
