This Role Offers the Following Work Appropriately Strategy: Hybrid

This position does not require an employee to be on-site full-time to perform most effectively. The employee’s role enables them to work at a GM facility or off-site as frequently as needed or desired.

The Role

The Global Technical Specialist (TS) in CAE will lead capability development for gear systems, structures, and NVH CAE within the Global Electrification and Battery Systems (GEBS) division. This role will offer technical leadership and direction, aiding virtual engineering endeavors such as design, development, and validation for both existing and future programs. The TS will be responsible for the technical roadmap for Gear Systems, Structures, and NVH CAE and will prioritize enhancing capabilities and pinpointing strategic areas for future simulation growth.

What You'll Do

  • Technical lead for propulsion gear systems, structures, and NVH engineers, along with global analysis support colleagues
  • Lead, execute, and coordinate analysis capability development initiatives, with emphasis on development and validation virtualizations
  • Integrate new processes and methods into Standard Work
  • Interface with Analysis Engineers, product release teams, Technical Specialists, and suppliers to develop optimal design solutions that meet requirements
  • Interface with software vendors to convey future needs and impart change
  • Be a change agent to enable hardware reduction initiatives
  • Work with leadership, lab partners, and program management teams Technical Specialists to identify gaps and priorities for analysis growth
  • Seek out state of the art tools and methods and maintain a benchmark of industry capability and trends
  • Lead analysis support for urgent product issue resolution
  • Responsible to define analysis procedures for bill of design (BoD) items
  • Interface with other virtual groups to establish common processes
  • Communicate status to leadership and escalate issues/roadblocks within the organization, as necessary
  • Represent GM for external collaborations and conferences
  • Own analysis Standard Work procedures
  • Provide training in new and existing procedures
