This position primarily supports a number of programs in the motorsports industry; NASCAR, as well as GM Racing, Corvette, and IndyCar race programs. This position secondarily has access to support defense applications for a variety of missile performance programs that include both wind tunnel support and dynamic flight analysis. Corvid uses a variety of computational approaches to solve these problems using internally developed tools and methods.
Aerospace Engineer – Motorsports CFD Support
Corvid Technologies is seeking qualified candidates to join our applied Aerodynamics group. Applicants should have advanced degrees (MS, Ph.D.) in aerodynamics with a focus in Computational Fluid Dynamics. An ideal applicant will have two to five years of experience applying CFD methods to ground vehicle aerodynamics.
Ability to obtain a U.S. Security Clearance is required. Must be willing to travel up to 20% of the time
Job duties include:
Research and development of weapons systems and related applications, drawing on a understanding of fundamental physics. Innovative and independent thinking is an absolute must, but must be achieved in the context of collaborative team efforts. Projects will require the ability to start with a problem, create concept solutions, and mature that concept into a prototype that can be tested. Problems will be diverse and multifaceted, ranging from the purely mechanical to the purely computational.
Corvid Technologies seeks qualified candidates for a full-time Windows System Administrator at our headquarters in the Charlotte, NC area. The qualified candidate will be responsible for the implementation and support of the Windows desktop and server environment. Furthermore, the Windows System Administrator will be responsible for the provisioning, installation, configuration, operation, and maintenance of systems hardware and software. Additional daily responsibilities include recognizing and troubleshooting operations problems with server hardware and application software, diagnosing hardware and software problems, recommending solutions, performing system repairs, and learning new technologies to resolve any problems. The candidate will regularly evaluate and integrate new operating system versions, drivers, and hardware.
Linux System Administrator
Corvid Technologies seeks qualified candidates for a full-time HPC System Administrator that will support a high volume of simulations on our in-house, Linux-based supercomputer system. The candidate will regularly perform configuration and maintenance of large Slurm clusters. At times, the candidate will compile and link software with both the Intel and GNU compilers, providing the highest calculation speed/best performance. Additional daily responsibilities include debugging hardware problems, configuration and maintenance of RAID arrays, network storage, Samba servers, Mellanox Infiniband fabrics, and setup and provisioning of new servers with Ansible. Corvid’s daily modeling and simulation relies on the successful administration of Linux. To champion these responsibilities, the candidate must have excellent shell (bash) scripting and automation skills with a deep understanding of Python.
