Bits to Atoms Job Board - Feb 24
Additive, DfAM, Computational Design, Engineering & Architecture Roles
The February 2024 edition of the Bits to Atoms Job Board showcases a diverse array of opportunities across the spectrum of computational design, advanced manufacturing, architecture and software development.
Reflecting the increasingly interdisciplinary nature of these fields, the roles span a range from technical positions, such as Software Engineers and Additive Manufacturing Specialists, to more strategic roles like Project Managers and Business Development Managers. This variety underscores the growing demand for professionals who can navigate the complexities of cutting-edge technologies and their applications.
The interdisciplinary practice emerging the fields of computational design and advanced manufacturing is precisely why the CDFAM Computational Design Symposium in Berlin, scheduled for May 7-8, is set to bring together individuals from a broad spectrum of disciplines. By focusing on the convergence of design, engineering, software development, and architecture, CDFAM offers a unique platform for professionals, academics, and innovators to exchange ideas, foster collaborations, and explore the connections that computational design helps to facilitate across all scales.
New open roles such as the Engineer for Integration and Automation in Additive Manufacturing at LEGO, reflect their continued embrace of advanced manufacturing techniques to scale the use of AM in consumer facing products. The board also features a cutting-edge position at Ford for a Software Engineer in Additive Manufacturing & Extended Reality, highlighting the automotive sector's push towards integrating digital technologies with physical manufacturing, even when that technology might not quite be ready for the scale of serial production required by the automotive industry.
The diversity of roles extends to the aerospace sector with SpaceX's search for a Propulsion Engineer, Additive (Raptor), underscoring the critical role of additive manufacturing in modern defense applications, and space exploration. Similarly, academic and research positions, like the PhD Studentship at The University of Edinburgh and postdoctoral opportunities at SDU in Denmark, emphasize the sector's dedication to advancing knowledge in topology optimization and additive manufacturing processes. I am most excited about early career roles offering valuable hands-on experience, such as the Internships at SAMSUNG, Mercedes Benz and BMW, and the Computational Design Internship at NIKE, providing pathways for emerging talents to engage with industry-leading practices, and seed the next generation of engineering practices with a ‘computational first’ mindset.
As always, the February Bits to Atoms job board is updated regularly during the course of the month, so be sure to subscribe, and keep checking for new roles.
