Divergent is a technology company that has architected, invented, built, and commercialized an end-to-end factory system called the Divergent Adaptive Production System (DAPS™) that comprehensively uses machine learning to optimally engineer, additively manufacture, and flexibly assemble complex integrated vehicle structures and subsystems. Products created using DAPS are superior in performance, lower in cost, rapidly customizable to meet mission and customer-specific requirements, faster to market, and scalable on demand to high volume production. Divergent is a qualified Tier 1 supplier to global automotive OEMs, and Divergent is now expanding to support mission critical needs in the Aerospace and Defense sector.
Purpose of Job:
We are seeking an experienced geometry and meshing software engineer to develop mesh generation and processing software to support our topology optimization, additive manufacturing, and robotic assembly software products. The ideal candidate will have experience developing unstructured mesh generation algorithms, techniques for mesh manipulation and improvement such as smoothing and local mesh transformations, and applying these techniques in the context of industrial scale product development. The candidate should have a strong understanding of modern software development practices in an agile development environment. In addition to developing code and documentation, they will also collaborate with engineers and scientists to ensure algorithms meet the specific needs of users.
Essential Job Functions and Performance Standards:
•Develop and maintain software development best practices to ensure high-quality code, efficient testing, and timely releases.
•Design, implement, and optimize advanced algorithms and data structures in the field of mesh generation and manipulation to address real-world challenges and improve the speed and efficiency of geometric computations.
•Design and implement algorithms and data structure for interfacing with CAD models and preparing them for meshing.
•Conduct in-depth analysis of discrete models originating during topology optimization to identify potential mesh quality issues to improve structural analysis.
•Collaborate with cross-functional teams, including software engineers, mathematicians, and domain experts, to ensure that our capabilities integrate seamlessly into larger software systems and applications.
•Prepare clear and comprehensive documentation for algorithms, code, and methodologies. Communicate complex concepts effectively to both technical and non-technical stakeholders.
•Continuously monitor industry and research trends in computational geometry and meshing, geometric modeling, digital manufacturing, and computer-aided design, and bring those ideas back to the team.
