Descripción y Requerimientos


We’re focused on bringing more light into people’s lives by helping them create healthier, happier spaces to build memories and do what they love. This applies to our team, too. By celebrating our differences and embracing a positive work-life balance, we are recognized as a Yellow Ribbon company, one of Forbes Magazine’s 2021 “America’s Best Large Employers” and a “Best Employer for Diversity.” As a 2021 Energy Star Partner of the Year, Andersen is also committed to environmental health and sustainability. No matter your role, you’ll have the opportunity to make a difference.

The Modeling and Simulation Engineer position will provide critical insight to Andersen’s engineering teams about how products and materials behave under a variety of applications including multi-body deformation, time-temperature dependent deformations, non-Newtonian fluid dynamics, fluid to solid heat transfer, and fatigue to failure.  This is a Hybrid Role- Onsite 3 days a week. 


Based within Andersen Corporation’s Research, Development, and Innovation organization, the primary responsibilities of this position will be to provide advanced simulation services including Nonlinear Finite Element Analysis (NLFEA, FEA) and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) to a variety of teams within the organization. This position will also interface with a team of experimentalists on topics of material characterization and experimental validation of simulation.

  • Collaborate with engineers on boundary conditions, material properties, and CAD geometry for setup of simulations.
  • Adjust and debug meshing parameters to balance accuracy with convergence time.
  • Perform CFD and FEA analysis to understand critical product and process performance during the development process.
  • Collaborate with engineers and technicians on model validation using an appropriate real-world experiment.
  •  Lead technical discussions regarding simulation results and brainstorm future work.
  • Document simulation results and provide engineering recommendations to internal engineering teams via presentations and written reports.
  • Develop and improve existing simulation techniques with purchase of external software, new code or subroutines, and automation of virtual workflow.
  • Stay up to date with simulation software and tools including ANYSYS platforms, DDS Systems platforms, and OpenFOAM.
  • Travel as needed within the USA (5-10%). 
Bachelor of Science in Engineering with emphasis on mechanics.

3+ years engineering experience.
