Job Description

An innovative global automotive company working on their hybrid eVTOL has reached the next step in development and requires a Real-Time Simulation and Software Engineer onsite in North Carolina. You will help this multidisciplinary team succeed by leading the offline and real-time simulation development for the eVTOL vehicle.




  • Take full responsibility and work independently of the real time simulation facility.
  • Establish processes and standards to support the eVTOL simulation and model-based VMS software development.
  • Develop the simulation architectures and configuration control of models.
  • Define and control flight simulator configuration, select and work with suppliers.
  • Provide subject matter expert level technical leadership, mentoring and guidance on both practical and theoretical aspects of aerospace simulations and flight simulators.
  • Support managing the simulation scheduling, budget, and resources.
  • Support development, validation, and verification of simulation models.
  • Working together with different engineering teams and suppliers.
  • Track and report status to ensure milestones are met in support of the overall program schedule.


Required Skillset:


  • 6-10+ years of industry/ hands-on experience in complex aerospace simulation development in a Military or Commercial aircraft development programs.
  • In-depth knowledge of Matlab/Simulink offline and real-time simulations, either in commercially available environments or custom environments
  • Familiarity with typical real-time / hardware in the loop (HIL) platforms, such as dSPACE, SpeedGoat or equivalent.
  • Must be able to demonstrate a clear understanding, knowledge, and ability to develop aircraft simulations, and optimize real-time simulations.
  • Experience in integrating real-time flight simulators (pilot-in-the-loop and hardware-in-the-loop) – visual systems, inceptors, HIL interfaces.
  • Experience in model-based software development in accordance with, ARP4754A, DO-178C and DO-331.
  • Deep understanding of communication standards and protocols (RS-422/485, CAN, ARINC-429, AFDX, Ethernet, TCP/IP, USB, etc.).
  • Experience in version control – Bitbucket / Git / SVN and issue tracking – Jira or equivalent.
  • Ability to read, understand, and interpret the results of engineering analyses.
  • Team leadership, strong decision making and communication skills.
  • A Bachelor’s Degree in relevant engineering area, with a Master’s degree in a technical and/or management specialty preferred.
  • Ability to effectively succeed as an independent contributor, effectively approaching unknown situations head-on in the real-time simulation environment.


Location: Southern California (Relocation assistance available for candidates out of the immediate area)

Type: Fulltime (Onsite requirement to take full responsibility of the real time simulation facility.)
