Our Swiss client, a leading worldwide supplier of high performance optical sensor solutions is in search of a:

Thermo-Mechanical Design and FEA Simulation Engineer 


Tasks and responsibilities

  • Thermal/mechanical design and finite element analysis (FEA) for the development of opto-electronic packages.
  • Responsible of exploring/identifying novel solutions with the aid of FEA in order to meet thermal/mechanical demands across all our devices, with constrained physical environments.
  • Provide consultancy concerning packaging problems and improvements in the packaging process
  • Respond to customer/client requests or events as they occur, develop solutions to problems utilizing formal education and judgment
  • Interact with other engineers to define and implement numerical simulations for feasibility, validation of concepts and solutions, in support to new package technology development.
  • Perform data analysis, organization of results and redaction of detailed simulations reports. Analyze compliance with product requirements, identify and mitigate areas of risk.


  • MSc or PhD in Physics, Mechanical Engineering or related discipline.
  • Familiarity with numerical techniques for thermal, mechanical and fluid dynamics FEA with COMSOL Multiphysics is mandatory. Knowledge of Solid Works FLOW SIMULATION is a plus.
  • Good knowledge of data analysis tools (MatLab, MSExcel) and ability to critically understand select and report simulations results, in order to explain the physical behavior of the simulated systems.
  • Good theoretical background; knowledge of continuum mechanics is a strong asset. Specialization/experience in micro mechanics will be beneficial.
  • Good writing and speaking skills in English. German is a plus
  • Teamwork and communication skills
  • Ability to perform substantially independent technical work, to work under pressure, if necessary, and to manage multiple projects.
  • Willingness to travel, if needed
