Location: Multimatic Technical Centre, Markham, Ontario, Canada

Posted: January 11th, 2022

OVERVIEW:

Located in Markham, Ontario, Canada, Multimatic Technical Centre (MTC) is part of Multimatic’s Engineering Group.  MTC provides advanced design, simulation, testing and prototyping services to Multimatic’s production divisions and to Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM’s), niche vehicle manufacturers, motorsports organizations, military equipment contractors and consumer products companies.

MTC houses key engineering, testing and development capabilities under one roof, enabling rapid turnaround and tight integration between departments (vehicle systems engineering, production engineering, predictive methods, product testing and validation, composites, fabrication and prototyping).  Additional specialized services utilize MTC’s full-vehicle multi-post test rig, and a proprietary vehicle dynamics simulator.  These services are further enhanced by the capabilities of a fully equipped motorsports department.

The Analysis Department at MTC is currently seeking a CFD Engineer.  Note that this position is not remote based; the candidate needs to work onsite at our Markham location.
