COMSOL provides software solutions for multiphysics modelling to both commercial and academic customers. From the Cambridge office, we sell to several top engineering and scientific teams in the UK and Ireland. This is a small-office environment in a rapidly growing, diverse company. As such, you will be entrusted with a broad range of responsibilities, allowing for personal and professional growth.

For this role, we are seeking an individual with a strong background in Structural Mechanics, this includes topics such as; statics, dynamics, nonlinear material modelling (elastoplasticity, hyperelasticity etc), and contact mechanics. A background in the finite element method and multiphysics analysis is a plus.

Primary responsibilities

In this role, you will have the opportunity to use your skills in physics, engineering, and mathematics to support both commercial and academic customers undertaking a variety of physical modelling and simulation tasks using COMSOL Multiphysics software. Your main responsibilities will include:

  • Providing technical advice to the sales team at both pre- and post-sales stages

  • Providing support and explanation to customers by email, by phone and in person

  • Conducting training courses

You will:

  • Work closely with the sales team and customers at both pre- and post-sales stages.

  • Support the customer using COMSOL Multiphysics by addressing their modelling requirements and providing guidance, advice, and modelling assistance in a wide variety of application areas.

  • Create and deliver COMSOL product demonstrations at public workshops, customer meetings and professional conferences.

  • Conduct both public and customer bespoke training courses on COMSOL Multiphysics.

  • Interact with both potential and existing customers in both industry and academia.

  • Develop benchmark models to demonstrate features and capabilities of COMSOL Multiphysics to meet the modelling requirements of customers.

  • Work collaboratively with developers and other Application Engineers, both in the UK and other COMSOL offices, to establish a productive and proactive working environment.

  • This role will also include some travel within the UK and Republic of Ireland.

Person Specification

  • A strong mathematical and physics background, especially in Structural Mechanics and related fields. Proven proficiency with computational analysis is beneficial but not essential.

  • An aptitude for problem-solving and discerning the physics underlying complex modelling projects.

  • Positive and professional communication both in person and on the phone, with concise writing skills and the ability to communicate with confidence in a client-facing environment.

  • Business-oriented and willing to work with customers and the COMSOL sales team.

  • Ability to interact with customers from a diverse range of industries and research organisations, and genuine interest in working in a technical sales environment.
