Powertrain simulation specialist (Matlab/Simulink

Organisatie- en afdelingsomschrijving

In this role as the Technical analyst Fuel Economy and CO2, you will support the development of new vehicle projects by means of advanced numerical simulations within the Technical Analysis group. This department consists of a team with 15 specialists, responsible for the numerical verification and validations of new vehicle concepts and vehicle designs within the Product Development division. By means of simulations, new developments on vehicle and system level are evaluated and optimized for different vehicle performance aspects: Fuel Economy and CO2 emission, Aerodynamics, thermodynamics, NVH, Vehicle Handling, Crash Safety, Durability.

These simulations support the design process from the first concept ideas to the final validation and sign-off of the truck design. The focus of the development is on fuel economy improvement of the powertrain by including and optimizing hybrid/electrification functionality, improving longitudinal controls functions, improving efficiency of different driveline components, aerodynamics, platooning, optimized energy management.


  • Defining and modifying of the simulations models and simulations plans 
  • Performing simulations and analyses on Fuel Economy, CO2 emissions and driveline performance 
  • Defining test program proposals for validation and use these test results in model validations 
  • Processing the analyses to conclusions and design recommendations 
  • Maintaining the capability knowledge by following the new technologies in the field of Fuel Economy and alternative drivelines 
  • All in close cooperation with Vehicle Definition, Vehicle Testing and Engineering departments


  • Preferably a Master Degree (in Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Automotive/Aerospace Engineering)
  • Proven affinity/experience with Automotive Technology, numerical simulations and/or energy management
  • Good analytic skills
  • Experience in the field of powertrain simulations
  • Knowledge and experience with Matlab / Simulink is a must
  • Fluent in English language and Dutch preferable- effective communication in both verbal and written form
  • Soft skills: - Ability to work independently and to collaborate well in teams
  • A proactive workstyle, accountable, accurate and self-organizing
