Who are we?

At SimScale, our mission is to help engineers worldwide to develop their products faster, easier and better.

We are fascinated by the potential of simulation technology and work hard to make it easier and more accessible than ever before.

To that end, we are building the world’s first generic, completely web-based engineering simulation platform – bringing high performance
computing technology to the fingertips of every engineer and scientist in the world.

At SimScale you have the opportunity to shape the next generation of simulation technology together with a team of highly talented engineers,
mathematicians and computer scientists!

Since 2012, we have been working vigorously on a new method for the world of high-performance computing. Our cloud platform enables customers to access powerful engineering simulation technology – using a web browser. This provides a broad target group – ranging from large corporations to individual engineers – with the ability to develop their products faster, better and more cost-efficient.

About the job

Join an exciting startup and be part of the team responsible for guaranteeing customer satisfaction of the next generation of design software. The individual filling this role will work closely with the application development team to quickly identify and resolve problems, actively participate in improving QA process definition and provide manual quality assurance testing to ensure requirements in functionality, usability, workflow, and robustness are met.
