Product Engineer – User Experience (m/f/d)
For our European Office in Stuttgart, Gamma Technologies GmbH (GT) is looking for a: Product Engineer – User Experience (m/f/d)
Gamma Technologies develops, markets, and sells engineering simulation software called GT-SUITE. With roots in Automotive, nearly all the world’s leading automotive manufacturers that leverage GT software. Our solutions help automotive companies build more fuel-efficient vehicles that get better gas mileage while reducing emissions without sacrificing vehicle performance. The move from traditional internal combustion engines (ICE) powered by gasoline or diesel fuel to electrified vehicles presents an enormous market opportunity for GT as our software allows Electrical Vehicle manufactures and their suppliers, to design better vehicles with our software. Regulatory agencies globally have mandated that vehicle manufacturers reduce harmful environmental emission output, or they will face significant financial penalties and GT helps our clients meet these mandates.
As a Product Engineer in the User Experience team, you will help our customers get the most out of our software with GT-SUITE’s sophisticated user interface that enables our customers to build, run and analyze output produced by our physics engine.
Building models often occurs within collaborative environments at our clients, and we deliver the capabilities to efficiently re-use data, share subsystems of larger models with other groups and deploy front-end interfaces (including web-based) for users with different levels of experience. Running models involves model validation and real-time run-time monitoring, requiring extensive user experience design.
Post processing involves setting up customized reports and utilizing data analytics techniques ranging from data smoothing and trendline generation to using sophisticated machine learning techniques to answer engineering questions. Visualization is also a key capability that allows our customers to generate plots, tables and diagrams that allow effective digestion of physical trends to make engineering decisions.
As we begin a journey to transform GT’s desktop applications into web applications, it is expected that this role will similarly evolve.
