Crash Analysis – Occupant Safety and Biomechanics Engineer



Analyze and help design and develop occupant and pedestrian protection safety systems to further enhance overall vehicle
safety in regulatory, consumer testing, and due care cases.

Tesla is synonymous with industry leading crash safety performance and in this role, the analysis engineer will be an
innovative and skilled problem solver, using all analytical tools available. Where these tools are insufficient or do not exist,
they will develop novel methodologies to enable fast and accurate solutions. They will be brilliant, both technically, as an
individual, and as an active member in a diverse and challenging cross-functional team environment.

  • Previous knowledge of automotive crashworthiness legislation and attributes of vehicle safety and

    crashworthiness is preferred

  • Very strong engineering fundamentals in problem solving

  • Experience with numerical and analytical methods

  • CAE tools e.g., (LS-Dyna, MADYMO, ADAMS, Abaqus)

  • Test data analysis tools e.g. (DIAdem, Hyperworks, Matlab, LS-pre post and/or Meta-post, Python)

  • Good understanding and experience of vehicle structure development for crashworthiness

  • The ability to articulate and present technical issues to audiences of either spectrum regarding familiarity on crash

    safety and potential occupant injury

  • Hands-on experience with vehicle crash tests, sled tests and anthropomorphic test devices preferred

  • Excellent attitude, organization skills, and self-motivation
