Reason Three: At SimScale, We Are Family!
Having people join us from all over the world is exciting, but it can also mean that some team members move to, and start a new career in a completely new and unfamiliar environment. But even for those who have been living here for a while, it matters to us to include everyone in our team and truly make them feel like they are a valuable and integral part of our SimScale family. From chill after-work hangouts, to monthly events and festive parties, the fun never stops!

Reason Four: We Work Hard, But We Also Like to Socialize!
We are an ambitious company, setting high goals with even higher aspirations to achieve them. But we know it’s also important to celebrate our successes, and have fun! We create events for our team, as well as allow anyone to suggest activities that they would be interested in hosting right here at the office. From cooking evenings, trivia nights, Halloween, summer events, to quarterly parties and more, we love spending time together and value each other’s company.
“There are plenty of things I like about working at SimScale. From the flexible working environment, to the challenging and exciting tasks. But if I have to highlight my favorite thing about SimScale, it would definitely be its people! Everyone here is always willing to help and share their knowledge with you… but also share a Friday after-work beer and talk about different topics.” – Guillermo A.

Reason Five: Our Product Is Inspiring!
Our software is a tool that is truly helping to shape our world, and make it a better place. We contribute towards things like innovative building designs in cities all across the globe, making airplanes more efficient for travel, helping electric vehicles be more eco-friendly, and even optimizing major waterworks facilities for alternative power sources; and this is just to name a few applications.

“I’ve had many different jobs and sold many different things, but my role here at SimScale has been by far the most rewarding. I’m truly proud of the solution we provide, and I never imagined I’d have the opportunity to be involved in so many interesting projects.

Reason Six: We Trust Our Team Members
We truly acknowledge and appreciate that everyone is different. Some of us are morning people that get to the office before the birds are singing, and others are night owls that prefer working in the evening. That is why we emphasize a flexible work environment as well as working from home, where you start the day whenever you prefer. At SimScale, you will never be micromanaged and are encouraged to be a self-starter who gets guidance but can also learn by mistakes. As long as you are committed, we give you the space you need!

Being part of our company means there is no fixed career path that is set in stone and needs to be followed. We see and acknowledge each and everyone’s strengths and strongly encourage our talents to learn whilst bringing out the best in them. At SimScale, it is not the skill set that matters the most, it is passion and team spirit!

Reason Eight: Sharing Is Caring!
Every opinion matters! We encourage team members to learn. SimScale as a whole just gets better and improves when people share their ideas, visions, and opinions. Feedback is not just appreciated, it has a huge impact on SimScale. We truly want to adapt and change based on the needs of our team and customers.
“What I like about working here at SimScale is that I always feel free to come and talk to anyone, regardless of their position and role. I know that I will always feel comfortable talking about plans, issues, ideas and other things. We have this amazing chance here to all be passionate about simulation and the world of engineering in general and it is great to have this feeling that we share a common vision about solving issues and understanding phenomena. I enjoy that my team members are truly reliable, and in addition to that, they are very good communicators. This means that we can easily share failures, concerns, issues but also successes and breakthroughs.” – Arnaud Girin, Technical Marketing Specialist
