Job description

Your experience of Simulation, Software and Mathematical Modelling will help you to join an exciting, team who develop and maintain performance models to evaluate and prove sophisticated missile and weapon systems.


As Simulation and Modelling Engineer, you will have the opportunity to work for a leading multi-national Defence systems provider which boasts some of most advanced facilities in their areas of expertise. A corporate benefits package and transparent career development opportunities are on offer within this vibrant Engineering environment.


About the job:

Our client is looking for a Simulation & Modelling Engineer to join their modelling department, getting requirements and modelling these in code. The department has responsibility for model development and maintenance in the following domains:

    • Management of performance models and studies
    • Mathematical modelling of high performance, dynamic systems (including sub system components and system environment)
    • Verification and validation
Models include initial feasibility and concept proving studies, design development and trade-off studies, ground testing (including hardware testing and trials programmes), and post-trials analysis for detailed trial evaluation.

Simulation & Modelling engineers in our team develop aspects of the performance model to support key programmes including their design, implementation, test, reviews and supporting documentation as well as maintaining appropriate design records, ensuring compliance with appropriate quality standards.

We are a highly autonomous team and act as a point of contact for Simulation and Modelling’s interactions with the other project teams e.g. Guidance Navigation & Control, Software, Hardware-in-the-Loop, Systems Design & Validation and Technical Quality.

We ensure integration and verification of model components from external suppliers and perform technical analyses and investigations into a full range of issues and problems, preparing and developing solutions either individually or as a member of a project team.

We engage with the model users, understand and respond to their needs and ensure that the model is fit for its intended use.

About you:

As a Simulation and Modelling Engineer you will need:

    • A good understanding of simulation environments (e.g. MATLAB and Simulink, or similar) and programming languages (e.g. FORTRAN, C/C++).
    • Understanding of change and configuration control processes is considered an advantage (e.g. Rational Team Concert).
    • Ability to identify and solve sophisticated problems and gather the information needed to drive through to ultimate solutions.
    • Ability to visualise and analyse complex systems.
    • practical knowledge of basic systems engineering principles and processes.
