Vanderlande North America

  • Simulation Engineer

    Job ID
  • Overview

    Vanderlande's Systems Simulation Group in The Netherlands comprises enthusiastic, highly trained professionals who provide support to all the market segments and the large number of different processes within the Vanderlande organization ranging from sales to service and project execution to R&D. In the department, a large amount of energy is invested in the personal development of the simulation engineers to enable them to move up through the company in the course of their career.


    Vanderlande wants to invest in such a department in North America as well. As the first simulation engineer based in the Atlanta office you will be a part of both the Sales organization in North America as well as the Simulation Department in The Netherlands. You will start with an initial training at Vanderlande’s headquarters in the Netherlands during which you will learn simulation, gain knowledge about other tooling, meet your simulation colleagues and build your network. Back at the Atlanta office you will be performing simulation studies but also take the lead in creating more awareness about the need for simulation and help to hire and train more Simulation engineers.


    As a logistic simulation engineer, you conduct studies of the dynamic interaction in - and the logistics performance of - the complex material handling systems sold by Vanderlande. You use 3-D simulation software (Automod) to analyse and solve complex logistic problems. With your analytical skills and proactive attitude, you optimize the system and identify improvements prior to system installation on site at the customer's business location. You will develop conceptual improvements to control strategies and provide customers with tailored advice by thinking creatively when developing your simulation model. After you have gained more experience, your communication skills will enable you to act as a link between the different disciplines involved when working on larger projects.


    Basic Qualifications:

    • Master’s Degree in Computer Science, Mechanical Engineering, Industrial Engineering and Management Science, Mathematics or another technical subject. Or Bachelor’s Degree in similar study with at least 3 years of relevant working experience (in a technical field, preferably logistics).
    • Knowledge of simulation, flow analysis, and quantitative analysis techniques.
    • Knowledge of and affinity with programming, because you will be writing the simulation algorithms yourself
    • Must be willing and able to travel to the Netherlands for initial training (3-6 months).



    • Excellent communication skills and a proactive attitude.
