The R&D Engineer II contributes to the development of the Mechanical APDL product. In this role, the R&D Engineer II will collaborate with a team of expert professionals to tackle complex issues, satisfy customer requirements and accomplish development objectives. The successful candidate will be experienced in using GPU programming models to design and develop robust, efficient algorithms. These algorithms will be used to accelerate the speed of mechanical FEA simulations.

Ansys is the world leader in engineering simulation. Up to 80% of the cost of a product’s development is determined by the decisions you make early in the design process, and Ansys helps its customers reduce this cost with physical simulation tools to make better decisions quicker. Customers use Ansys simulation products to digitally explore design concepts and test critical design choices early in the product life cycle.
