Expleo is recruiting Modelling and Simulation Engineers to join the Simulation, Dynamcis and Control team in our Bristol office.


Due to upcoming projects and continued growth in ourAerospace and eVTOL business areas, Expleo are looking for multiple talented Modelling and Simulation Engineers to join our expanding team. 

The successful engineers will work within a team responsible for the development of models at vehicle level, system level and equipment level. The role covers all aspects of model based design, from concept/trade studies, through model requirements capture, the support of requirements verification, performance modelling, design activities, model validation, support to test, in service support and root cause analysis. 


As a Simulation and Control engineer you will work on the development of leading edge algorithms and processes, and with the latest toolsets to support the delivery and integration of the models as part of a wider integrated model set.


The role will suit an engineer looking to diversify their experience and work within a team responsible for producing a wide range of models including:

  • Fight dynamics
  • Flight controls
  • Hydraulics,
  • Hydraulic actuation
  • Electro-mechanical actuation
  • Landing gear 
  • Control and monitoring

The work involves the development of high-level vehicle models and control, such as flight dynamic models, as well as detailed models of systems and individual equipment, and their interaction. The role provides opportunities to work across all stages of the design cycle from concept phase through to in service with root cause analysis and problem solving, giving the candidate a broad range of experience to support them in the development of their career.


Candidates will have the following responsibilities (dependent on experience):

  • Working with the technical lead, defining modelling and analysis tasks and requirements
  • Development of new and existing models
  • Define and run model analyses
  • Take responsiblity for performance aspects of a design as part of a multidisciplinary team
  • Author (and or check) technical modelling documentation, including model description documents and analysis reports
  • Peer review models
  • Represent Expleo with customers and clients
  • Support testing activities


Candidates will ideally be degree qualified (or equivalent), in a related discipline preferably Aerospace Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Mathematics, or Physics, and must be able to demonstrate a good understanding of fundamental modelling principles of systems.


The candidate must have relevant industrial experience, ideally within the aerospace sector (or demonstrate transferrable skills from other sectors) and must have a good knowledge of engineering analysis and simulation tools, particularly Matlab/Simulink. The candidate should have experience with version control software and have knowledge of configuration management processes. The successful candidates will have strong interpersonal skills and have the ability to work independently and within teams of engineers.

Key skills include:

  • Good knowledge of Matlab/Simulink (and other Mathworks toolboxes)
  • Hydro-actuated systems
  • Electro-mechanical actuated systems
  • Multi-body simulation
  • Vehicle dynamics
  • Systems engineering
  • Signal processing
  • Version control software (e.g. GIT)
  • English advanced


  • Confidentiality
  • Flexible, can-do approach
  • Ability to deal with multiple conflicting requests
  • Professional attitude
  • Self-motivated to see tasks through to successful completion
  • Proactive
  • To be able to work and coordinate within technical teams

Desired Skills

  • Amesim
  • ANSYS Motion
  • Application within the Aerospace sector
  • Application within the Marine sector
  • Experience of motor control
  • Good understanding of control theory (Kalman filters, etc)
  • Real time models
  • C/C++
  • Python


  • All levels considered from +2 years industrial experience.


Working in a collaborative work environment. We work side by side with colleagues and internal customers, in good times and in challenges.
We empower all professionals who are passionate about technology by enabling them to expand their skills and participate in inspiring projects.
Technical, language and skills training.
Competitive salary based on experience. Competitive company benefits such as flexible compensation plan, social benefits, etc.
24 days annual leave plus 24 and 31 December.
Always working as a team, our people are not afraid to think big and challenge the status quo.
Interaction with an experienced and technically capable team.

"We are an equal opportunity employer and welcome applications from all suitably qualified people, regardless of race, gender, disability, religion/belief, sexual orientation or age".
