We are a technology powerhouse that designs, engineers, and manufactures the world's most advanced automotive technology and hypercars. Bytes to bolts, Rimac is where everything happens.

Our teams develop and produce both hardware and software solutions for our flagship, record-breaking hypercar, the Nevera, as well as for other automotive manufacturers’ vehicles. Working on technology solutions for partners such as Porsche, Hyundai, Aston Martin, Koenigsegg, Automobili Pininfarina, and others, gives Rimac a unique position of a technology leader in the high-performance electric vehicle industry. The stakes are high.

As a fast-moving company, we nurture a high-performing culture. If you are interested in joining, you must be prepared for relentless learning, adapting, and embracing new technologies. We expect an easy-going person, but also self-driven, entrepreneurial, and highly independent in their work, that will enjoy rising to the challenge and have fun pushing the limits of technology.

Our expectations are high. And we can only achieve our goals with the dedication and collaboration of our exceptional team. Our ambition is to deliver and go the extra mile. We need to expand our already industry-leading team, find the best people, and lead the charge.

We are looking for an experienced Aerodynamics Engineer who will be a part of the Bugatti Rimac Aero-Thermal Team within the Vehicle Integration department, helping us to improve and broaden our capabilities in development of vehicle aerodynamics. 


Aerodynamics Team is a multi-disciplinary group of enthusiastic engineers working in a cross-functional environment between Research&Development and Design, with responsibility in external aerodynamics and aeroacoustics, active aerodynamic systems design and strategy, underhood and brakes thermal management as well as the cabin thermal comfort. 


Within the role of Aerodynamics engineer, along the strong grasp in fluid dynamics and thermodynamics, we are searching for an engineer with automotive experience in numerical and experimental methods in both aerodynamics and aerothermal domain. 


Your responsibility will range from collecting of the input data, preparing of the simulation models and performing CFD simulations, to planning and analyzing the numerical and experimental data followed by creation of a new design ideas (CAD). 

You should be very proactive, capable to communicate, create and analyze, in fast-paced dynamic environment with minimal supervision. 

For this position you must be passionate about engineering, physics, but also you should be passionate about cars, technology and solving complex engineering problems.
