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 San Luis Obispo, CA. 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.
