By offering the best and broadest portfolio of engineering simulation software, Ansys helps companies solve the most complex design challenges and engineer products limited only by imagination.




Autonomous vehicles will drive millions of kilometers in the virtual world before the first driverless cars hit the road. ANSYS is building the software toolchain to demonstrate safety in the virtual world prior to commercial deployment. As part of its development, ANSYS OPTIS is recruiting a Simulation Software Engine Engineer. Integrated within a team of developers, you participate in the development of middleware kernels of our Realtime framework used in our virtual reality products. This cover mainly functionnalities like preparing physical virtual worlds (lighting, sensors...) with data results visualizations of those simulations with associated interactions . If you want to join the adventure of virtual reality & 3D simulation applied to an industrial case, if in addition, you want to get closer to one of the most attractive environments in France: the Cote d'Azur, you should seriously consider joining us . You will work on innovative technologies, in an extended team. We operate in Agile (SCRUM and SAFe).

You have a solid experience in C# programming (OOP in .Net Framework 4.x, .NetCore, .NetStandard) with good knowledge in architecture/best-practices to maintain C# frameworks (Unit testing, moquing, design patterns, SOLID...). You have already used code versionning softwares, ticketing systems (Git, TFS azure devops...) and dependencies systems (nugets...). You have knowledge in data contract/exchanges (XSD, ProtoBuffer, JSON, GRPC...) or real-time interoperability with external softwares. You have knowledge in 3D rendering simulation pipeline like "Scene Graph" or "Entity Component System (ECS)" (handling data-structures like OpenSceneGraph, Ogre3D, Unity or GoDot...) with associated functions (like 3D objects imports, loading with materials & animations handling...). Having knowledge in LINUX environements is a plus. As the position is embedded in an international scientific context, a good English level, as well as a scientific background with knowledge in mathematics, are necessary.
