NVIDIA has been transforming computer graphics, PC gaming, and accelerated computing for more than 25 years. We've built an incredible legacy of innovation that’s fueled by great technology—and amazing people. Today, we’re tapping into the unlimited potential of AI to define the next era of computing, an era in which our GPU acts as the brains of computers, robots, and self-driving cars that can understand and engage with the world! Doing what’s never been done before takes vision, innovation, and the world’s best talent. As an NVIDIAN, you’ll be immersed in a diverse, supportive environment where everyone is inspired to do their life's work. Come join the team and see how you can make a lasting impact on the world! The position will support the execution of product design either individually or by leading a combination of internal contributors, contractors, suppliers, and Product Design Engineers.

What you’ll be doing:

The analyst will play a vital role in defining architectures and analyzing mechanical systems as part of the product development cycle.

  • Perform structural and dynamic analysis

  • Produce and maintain models generated from in-house and commercially available software codes that simulate mechanical loading conditions, dynamic environments (Shock&Vibration), and mechanism motions

  • Perform loads development (primary structure and component level), shock and vibration environment determination, component and system-level testing, and data evaluation

  • Document analysis through formal reports that are clear, detailed, and timely

  • Prepare test plans/requirements for static, vibration, modal, and shock tests. Detail the results in post-test reports and provide evidence of correlation

  • Present analysis reports and test results at program reviews

  • Provide rapid analysis results to support conceptual studies and rapid prototype development

  • Assess and propose new simulation strategies to improve product development

  • Mentor junior engineers and cross-train other engineering fields

What we need to see:

  • Master's degree in Mechanical Engineering/Structural Mechanics or equivalent experience

  • 3+ yrs of experience

  • Robust understanding of Static/Structural Dynamics analysis and experience with finite element modeling

  • Proficient with plastic and metallic structures fabricated by various manufacturing methods, general composite technology, and associated structural analysis

  • Proven ability to collaborate effectively with adjacent teams (e.g., systems engineering, thermal, mechanical design, test) in a highly integrated team environment

  • Experience with ANSYS, Abaqus, LS-Dyna, Matlab, CREO or similar modeling tools.

  • Familiarity with modern substructure modeling, assembly technology, and component mode synthesis

  • Creativity/innovation to implement root cause analysis related to failures of any aspect of a mechanical system

  • Ability to perform hand calculation for proof check

Ways to stand out from the crowd:

  • Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering/Structural Mechanics

  • Experience in the planning and execution of static, vibration, acoustic, modal, and shock tests for server, consumer, or automotive hardware

  • Experience in magnetic systems analysis and motor design

  • Experience evaluating designs using rigid body or flexible body analysis methods and tools

  • Understanding of thermal and thermo-structural analyses

  • Understanding of automotive, server, and consumer devices, statics, strength of materials, structural dynamics principles, and methods

  • Proficient in programming and use of MATLAB (or similar) for analysis and data manipulation

With highly competitive salaries and a comprehensive benefits package, NVIDIA is widely considered to be one of the technology industry's most desirable employers. We have some of the most forward-thinking and hardworking people in the world working with us and our product lines are growing fast in some of the hottest state of the art fields such as Artificial Intelligence, Deep Learning, Autonomous Vehicles, and Robotics.
