Job Description

We are an engineering firm that specializes in providing elegant engineering solutions for complex challenges. e.construct is a fast-growing firm with 7 offices around the world. At our core, we question how the very nature of how to evolve the structures that we inhabit to increase their performance and value.

we design structures such as bridges, high-rise design, precast concrete engineering and post-tensioning design. The firm's core work is structural engineering; however, e.construct is increasingly holistic at its approach to buildings and it has divisions in MEP, Geotechnical and emerging construction technology such as 3D printing of concrete, technology and 3D laser scanning.

We are the technology lab of e.construct and we employ technology to empower and eventually transform engineering. iCon aims to construct human-aided design engineering tools and will work with other e.construct divisions with coding, computational analysis, machine learning.

iCon consists of a team of talented Software Developers, Machine Learning experts and Designers that builds tools that engineers can use to design and manufacture the next generation of cities.

Role Summary 

We are looking for a candidate that has in-depth knowledge and understanding of linear and nonlinear finite element methods, theory and application of FEA methodology, including practical experience using FEA simulation tools (experience with open source FEA tools is also desirable). 


  • Work with a team using a combination of FEA, Statistical Methods and Machine Learning techniques to develop and evaluate novel structural optimization tools.  To develop these tools. The candidate will be required to have an understanding the mathematical underpinnings of FEA.    


  • A Master’s degree in engineering (computer science, applied mathematics, or structural engineering). 
  • At least 5 years of prior experience that includes experience using commercial FEA tools. 
  • Of the 5 years, at least 3 years of professional software development experience.  
  • Strong skills with a programming language is mandatory, preferably Python. 
  • Experience in the development and use of simulation software in computational engineering. 
  • Demonstrated proficiency in the theory and practice of linear and nonlinear FEA, specifically in the areas of solid mechanics, numerical analysis and multi-physics simulations. To derive necessary mathematical formulations mainly in Finite Element Method (FEM). 
  • Understanding of computational methods in mathematics and engineering, such as numerical integration, interpolation, and discretization engineering simulation. 

Above and beyond

  • Approximately 10 years of experience software development in (ideally Python or C/C++) on a medium to large size development team on commercial engineering simulation software. 
  • Experience using hardware accelerators (e.g. GPU's) and familiarity with parallel programming techniques (MPI/OpenMP).  
  • Ph.D. in Applied Physics, Applied Mathematics, Computer Science, Structural Engineering or other Engineering discipline. (Research in the area of Finite Element Analysis with emphasis on Structural Analysis).
