About the role

We are seeking a Structural Engineer experienced in using digital tools to join an exciting, growing team!

The role will be responsible for applying Python programming and Parametric Design (Rhino/Grasshopper) to a variety of building projects, specifically utilising laser-cut steel.

The job will involve using and developing in-house tools to design structurally optimised steel and reinforced concrete building components, verified using Eurocode 2/3, experimental testing, and finite element modelling.

An emphasis is on using laser-cut digital fabrication to create new types of structurally efficient solutions that have reduced embodied carbon.

*N.B. No Sponsorship is available for this position.*

You will be Responsible for:
– Concept to detail engineering design stages of buildings and their structural elements. Using and developing in-house design, modelling, and analysis tools (Grasshopper/Python).
– Writing standard Eurocode-compliant hand calcs and embedding design code checks in the workflow.
– Producing CAD models in Rhinoceros, preparing and exporting models for laser-cutting, considering assembly and cost.
– Working with clients via meetings, workshops, and the design team, to solve problems. Providing updates on projects and their deliverables on a regular basis.
– Liaise and work with the internal team of other mechanical/structural engineers and contract/business managers, and external parties such as experimental testing facilities and Universities.
– Developing own knowledge and ability, a path to Chartership. Continuous improvement activities to support business growth.
– Stay up to date with industry trends, emerging technologies, and regulatory changes to continuously improve design practices and enhance construction efficiency.
– Keeping senior management up to date on project status and progress.

Your Skills and Experience:
– Qualified to MEng degree (or BEng and Masters) in Civil/Structural engineering.
– Proven experience as a practising engineer would be a significant advantage.
– Competent in applying a programming language to solve problems (ideally in Python).
– Comfortable in using CAD software, with an emphasis on Parametric Modelling (Grasshopper/Dynamo).
– Strong background in structural mechanics/analysis, working from first principles and using Eurocodes.
– Can use finite element analysis to solve beam and shell models.
