Onsite: This position requires an employee to be on-site on a full-time basis.

We are seeking a Tire Modeling & Simulation Engineer to support GM affiliated race teams by developing and integrating tire models with simulation (real time and off-line) using flat track, track test, race event, and other applicable data to improve tire performance. You will collect information from sources inside and outside GM, characterize tire models and interpret results for motorsports. As a key team member, you will attend motorsports testing across the country, cooperate with GM affiliated motorsports teams, and enable the transfer of knowledge from motorsports to GM tire models. In this constantly evolving environment, the team works with innovative testing and analytical technologies to review tire force and moment (F&M) properties to virtually integrate tire performance to enable vehicle dynamics simulations for original equipment applications as well.

Joining the GM Motorsports Organization will provide you with the experience and exposure it takes to build and maintain successful race teams and the opportunity to showcase your vehicle dynamics and simulation skills, contribute to innovation, connect lessons learned in racing to production intent vehicles, work cross functionally with our partners and ultimately, help shape the future of Motorsports!

What you will do:

  • Develop methods to process, review, and qualify tire test data; F&M Flat Trac and Wheel Force Transducer (WFT) for tire modeling

  • Attend WFT track testing

  • Fit tire test data (F&M Flat Trac and WFT) to models with documented quality

  • Scale and synthesize models based on feedback from secondary data sources

  • Develop extensive enhancements to advance tire models, tools, and methods

  • Enable tire technology transfer

  • Support integration of tire models with real-time simulation environments

  • Domestic travel is required and expected 1-2x/month for 2-4 days in duration; tire testing occurs during the week - limited weekend travel may be required to arrive to the test facility

  • Additional Description

    What you will need:

  • Bachelor of Science in Mechanical, CAE, or Software Engineering

  • 5+ years of engineering experience following the completion of a degree

  • Vehicle dynamics and simulation experience

  • MATLAB or Python coding for modeling and analysis

  • Pi Toolbox experience

  • Demonstrated ability to collaborate with a team, as well as work independently

  • Nice to have:

  • Knowledge of tire model fitting routines from Flat-Trac and WFT data

  • Experience in developing advanced tire models that include wear, friction, and thermal effects

  • Experience implementing tire models in real-time simulation environments to support Driver-in-the-Loop project activities

  • Motorsports experience
