Divergent is on a mission to democratize the design and manufacture of vehicles. We want to enable a future where small entrepreneurial teams across the globe will bring increasingly material and energy efficient transportation solutions to market with a fraction of the capital and time.
Divergent has invented a complete manufacturing solution to address system level challenges. The Divergent Adaptive Production System (DAPS) is a complete software hardware solution designed to replace traditional vehicle manufacturing. To make the complex simple, it is a complete modular digital factory for complex structures. Given a set of digital requirements as input, the machine automatically computationally engineers, additively manufactures, and assembles any complex structure. The system is able to move seamlessly between manufacturing different vehicle models.
Purpose of Job:
We are seeking an experienced Senior Computational Geometry Engineer to apply advanced mathematical methods for optimization, processing and meshing of complex 3D models for additive manufacturing and robotic assembly, which tightly integrate with the Divergent Adaptive Production System (DAPS). The ideal candidate will have extensive experience in applied two- and three-dimensional computational geometry, mesh generation, and geometric optimization, with a strong understanding of software development processes. The Senior Computational Geometry Engineer will be responsible for the design, development, and maintenance of innovative optimization software that meets the needs of our clients and is continuously improved to stay ahead of industry trends. If solving complex algorithmic and geometrical problems, developing manufacturing software from the ground up, and building rock-solid software at the foundation of a rapidly growing startup sounds interesting to you, then we would love to hear from you.
