Position Overview:

  • Work collaboratively as part of a small, geographically distributed development team focused on extending the battery simulation features of STAR-CCM+.  Develop and maintain new and existing features in support of the Battery Simulation Module.
  • Design, implement and test new features in the theme of battery simulation methods.
  • Interpret requirements for new features to create development proposals and prototypes which can be shared and further enhanced with the team.
  • Own the software quality of development efforts within this theme and synthesize feedback on the features to continually enhance the product.
  • Operate within an agile scrum environment taking appropriate ownership of development tasks and report back on progress and impediments.
  • The role is within the Batteries vertical development team within the Technology Application & Verticals Department, which itself is part of the larger Product Development organization. This latter team is tasked with providing three full STAR-CCM+ releases per year all including significant new feature development.
  • Lebanon NH shown as preferred location, Austin TX and Melville NY would also work (other offices in US would be considered for the right candidate)

Responsibilities:

  • Build, extend and maintain new and existing battery simulation related features within STAR-CCM+.
  • Implementation will involve using best-practices in software development to create high quality, object-oriented software using the C++ and Java programming languages.
  • Maintain and improve the existing sizable code base through refactoring to improve quality and address evolving software requirements.
  • Interpret market driven requirements to develop feature proposals, design documents & prototypes. Feature design will give consideration to the end user and overall solution workflow to attain the optimal solution.
  • Create automated tests within a Java framework to exercise and maintain the quality of new features and ensure comprehensive test coverage of the product.
  • Take part in design and code reviews, providing appropriate presentations, supporting materials in support of new ideas, as well as feedback on similar peer work products.
