The Company

About Atargis

Atargis Energy Corporation is a developer of a proprietary ocean wave energy converter. The company was founded in 2010 after initial research, conducted at the US Air Force Academy, presented the potential of the technology. The CycWEC was invented by Dr. Stefan Siegel in 2005, and initial patents were filed in 2006. The company is located in Colorado, USA.

As a pioneer of a groundbreaking technology, Atargis is aware of the rather unprecedented standing it holds in the largely undeveloped field of ocean wave energy. With this technology, Atargis hopes to empower a more sustainable future by efficiently harnessing the visceral power of the ocean. We believe that renewable energy can become a cost effective supplement and eventual replacement for fossil fuels.

Purpose

Vision and Values

External Support

Partners

It would be impossible to develop a wave energy converter without an external team of testing facilities, academic support and manufacturing facilities. The crucial funding from the National Science Foundation as well as the Department of Energy was essential to our progress. In order to enter the next phase of testing Atargis is seeking new partners.

The leadership of Atargis Energy Corporation consists of Co-Founder, President and CTO, Dr. Stefan Siegel; Co-Founder and director of the board Mr. Victor Korea (MBA), and Freia A. Siegel, Secretary.

Computational Fluid Dynamics Specialist

Location:

Remotely based/Corporate Office based in Pueblo, CO

Compensation:

Depends on Experience, Benefits available

Relocation:

Not necessary, although some travel will be required

About Atargis Energy:

Atargis Energy is a Colorado based clean tech startup company founded in 2010. You have the unique opportunity to join our team which is developing the Cycloidal Wave Energy Converter (CycWEC) that extracts energy from ocean waves and converts it to electricity. If you are passionate about building a sustainable energy supply for our planet, Atargis offers you the chance to be part of the team that is designing, testing and building the first commercially viable ocean wave energy converter.

Summary of Role/Responsibilities:

Our small, interdisciplinary team of research engineers has a job opening for a Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) Specialist. The CFD specialist performs feedback controlled numerical simulations using Atargis proprietary simulation software, in order to optimize the performance of the CycWEC. This work involves close collaboration with the Controls and Structural Engineers.

The successful candidate will be proficient in automating numerical simulations to maximize productivity using scripting. Candidates should have experience with multiple CFD codes, including boundary layer and viscous analysis. The CFD Specialist is not merely a user of numerical tools but employs an in-depth knowledge of flow physics to understand the inner workings of the simulations. A strong track record of applying knowledge to solve unsteady hydrodynamic problems using time resolved simulations is needed.

Requirements:
  • Undergraduate degree in Aerospace, Ocean, Mechanical Engineering or a related discipline
  • Masters or Ph.D. degree preferred
  • Specialization in computational fluid dynamics
  • A minimum of 5 years of experience in fluid dynamics, including Ph.D. work
  • Experience with multiple CFD Codes
  • In depth understanding of potential flow, panel methods and boundary layer approximations
  • Experience with spectral post processing analysis
  • Expert level MatLab programming skills, including parallelization
  • Linux system administration experience
  • Excellent communication skills
  • Eagerness to work with other engineers in an interdisciplinary team
  • Passion for renewable and ocean wave energy
Preference for candidates with experience in the following:
  • Knowledge of linear ocean wave theory
  • Experience in ocean wave simulations
  • Experience in system identification
  • LabVIEW programming knowledge
  • Start-up environment
  • Dynamic team-oriented contributor

Want to build a sustainable future and pioneer the use of ocean wave energy? Come join Atargis.
