Senior Vehicle CFD Engineer - Vehicle (m/f)

Sv. Nedelja, Croatia

This job is not available any more.

Rimac Automobili develops and manufactures the world's fastest and most exciting electric vehicles – both our own cars such as the Concept_One and its successors, but also for many of the major brands in the industry. We are looking for a Senior CFD Engineer who will help us develop state-of-the-art vehicle aerodynamics, active aero elements, cooling systems and other systems that involve fluids in motion. You will be involved in the whole vehicle development process – from the first line on a blank sheet of paper, all the way until a beautiful and aerodynamically advanced and efficient car hits the showrooms. It is expected that the candidate offers innovative and forward-thinking solutions and acts pro-actively. The candidate will carry out CFD analysis and analyze the results based on input from various departments – design, body engineering, powertrain engineering, battery development etc. Due to the usual conflicts between styling and aerodynamics, you have to be able to deliver solutions that will keep both the designers and the aerodynamic targets happy – which won't be an easy job.
