The EMEA Simcenter Center of Excellence is looking for a Simcenter PreSales Account Development Specialist Automotive to support the EMEA sales organisation.

This position involves working as part of the EMEA Center of Excellence for Simcenter.

Engineering companies increasingly need to predict real-world performance of their products using simulation tools that capture all of the physics that influence product efficiency and performance including those that cross the boundaries of traditional engineering disciplines.
