Job Overview

This position of the Simulation Principal underlines the importance of our corporate strategy towards Simulation Driven Design. TE’s Digital Engineering Solutions department is dedicated towards continuous improvement, research, development and deployment of best in class product and process simulation tools. Simulation has been identified as an important enabler for our 7000+ Engineers world wide to develop better products and processes and to bring them to market faster.
This position will help to better understand our Engineers needs, communicate current capabilities and deploy strategic new simulation tools.
The position requires Engineering, Simulation Analyst and Business Analyst skills including using organizational change management techniques to drive the technology and influence adoption in all business units of TE.

Simulation Driven Design is the process of using software tools throughout the product development process to predict structural/mechanical, electrical, thermal, high and low frequency and environmental performance to enable faster time to market, better quality and cost-effective solutions.
To ensure TE Connectivity’s pursuit of this continuous improvement and integration with our Digital Strategy, the role requires optimizing TE’s simulation portfolio. The position collaborates with multiple global business units and corporate functions and with all levels of CAD and simulation users, engineering management, domain knowledge experts and external partners.


  • Aligning the simulation capabilities of our current tools to the strategic needs of our businesses to predict product performance and process quality as early and accurate as possible.
  • Disseminate Best Practices to our global simulation experts.
  • Continuously gather feedback and strategic needs of our global simulation teams and compare with existing simulation capabilities and upcoming trends in simulation technology.
  • Drive relationship with our strategic simulation vendors to communicate gaps and opportunities in their respective product portfolios.
  • Manage global/regional working groups of TE’s simulation experts to increase adoption and awareness of simulation technology and to share best practices on how to use it.
  • Implement simulation material management and simulation data management capabilities.

What your background should look like:
