At CyDesign, we democratize access to powerful modeling and analysis tools for systems engineering.  Our software helps companies design better, cheaper, and safer automobiles, aircraft, biomedical devices, industrial machinery, or even spacecraft.  We deploy our solutions on public and private clouds in order to eliminate barriers to access and to turbocharge the analysis process.

We are a subsidiary of ESI Group, a well-respected engineering software company.  At CyDesign, you get the best of both worlds: a Silicon Valley startup environment and culture backed by a stable, multinational corporation. We offer great benefits and have a wonderful future ahead of us.


  • Have built and shipped a product which real customers paid to use.
  • Can talk with and understand customers (without scaring them away).
  • Are able to argue design implications as readily as coding strategies, and back up your arguments with working implementations.
  • Have deep understanding of the full web stack, including scalable fault-tolerant back-end services.
  • Appreciate clean, intuitive user experiences (UX) and strive to offer the same in your work products.
  • Enjoy working with cross-functional, international teams.
  • Like to get out of the office and travel from time to time.
  • Prefer to apply your skills and energy to products that make a real difference.

Technologies and concepts we use include Java, Python, SQL & NoSQL databases, AWS, RESTful APIs, Javascript, fault-resilience, self-healing systems, and the like.

Your responsibilities will include a combination of architecting, developing, and deploying a cloud-based software stack for systems modeling and simulation. Your knowledge, experience, and problem-solving ability are essential to success.  We are looking for an individual contributor who can lead, influence, and mentor the team.  You will coordinate with development teams in UK, France and India to oversee the development and deployment of our solutions.  As custom deployments are part of our solution set, a customer-centric approach is critical for success.

Desired Skills and Experience

  • BS in Computer Science, Math, Physics, or Engineering.
  • Minimum of 5 years of experience as a software engineer or architect.
  • Demonstrated experience with full stack web development and RESTful services in building and deploying scalable, cloud-based enterprise software applications.
  • Advanced knowledge of Java, Javascript, and Python.
  • Experience building systems with SQL and NoSQL databases.
  • UI/UX skills (especially HTML5) are desirable.
  • Demonstrated ability to quickly learn new technologies.
  • Excellent communication and collaboration skills.

Occasional domestic and international travel will be necessary to collaborate with development partners and customers.

About CyDesign

Whether it's an electric vehicle, heavy industrial equipment, or a biomedical device, systems are becoming more complex every day. New cyber-electromechanical systems are far too complicated to verify and validate using physical prototypes.  Prototypes cost a lot of time and money to build, and they lock designers into certain design decisions too early in the process, often without fully understanding the implications of such decisions.

CyDesign is building a model-based system engineering solution that will let the engineer quickly assess design options against requirements during the conceptual design stage. Should the vehicle have conventional or hybrid drive? How will thermal loads affect an implanted medical device? By providing answers to these questions early in the design process, a more robust and reliable system may be built.

CyDesign Studio will help the engineer gather requirements, keep them pertinent to the design, explore the trade space of possible design alternatives, assess the viability of these alternatives, and provide guidance resulting in a much better final product.

CyDesign Labs is located in San Jose, CA, with a subsidiary in Coventry, UK and development partnerships in France and India.

CyDesign is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
