As a global market leader with HQ in Denmark, we have the expertise to ensure that.

For our company in Pécs, Hungary, we are looking for a skillful FEA simulation engineer with a “can do” attitude to join a new team supporting FOSS Product Innovation. You will help us develop world leading instruments from concept until release to production and sales. Being first and best takes something extra. We work at a high speed with highly skilled and motivated colleagues in multidisciplinary projects. It is challenging and fun - and requires highly proficient people with a proven track record of delivering high quality products. Maybe that person is you?

As a FEA simulation engineer, you play a central role in the development process and you will get unique opportunities to work with many different and challenging technologies. As a part of a simulation team in Pécs, Hungary you are expected to work closely together with your local colleagues and report to the simulation team lead in Denmark.

The job will involve working on one or more simulation projects to support design decisions. Starting with the project definition and solution strategy, followed by execution and presentation of results. There will be frequent visits to the R&D department in Hillerød, Denmark to get a visual and hands on understanding of the problems and meet the other project team members.


The preferred candidate holds a degree in mechanical engineering or other relevant field and has experience in some of the following:

  • Experience with CAD SW, e.g., Autodesk Inventor

You must share our passion for mechanical and technology development at a very high and challenging level. You are committed to deliver quality simulations and communicate the findings. Besides being one of the best in the field of mechanical simulations, you are also self-motivated. You are a natural team player and people like working with you because you have a positive mindset even when you are challenged and deadlines are tight.
