Systems Modeling Engineer, Semi



You will be assisting in the development of the Tesla Semi-Truck, and will design system models for mechanical, electrical and thermal systems, and assist in system integration and system design areas. Multisystem, multiphysics models, and integration and architecture development will shape system level optimization and performance tuning efforts and drive new technologies for Semi-Truck and other vehicle programs. Your primary goal will be in maximizing system efficiencies and delivering stable performance, reliability and safety across vehicle areas. To do so, you will collaborate with cross- functional partners, design teams, and external vendors/ suppliers. This is an awesome opportunity to contribute to one of the, and perhaps the, most revolutionary vehicles in development today
