Bangalore, KA, IN

Company:  ExxonMobil

Job Role Summary


We are looking to hire candidates to work on challenging engineering problems for our upstream business that focus on exploration, development, and production of hydrocarbons. Specific areas of interest for this position include application of computational mechanics, fracture mechanics and finite element modeling skills to tackle a range of problems in the upstream ranging from drilling & subsurface, offshore, and pipeline engineering to offshore as well as structural and facilities design.


  • Build computational mechanics simulations using proprietary and vendor tools to provide design guidance necessary to solve business problems. Analyze simulation results and develop technical reports and presentations
  • Design, build and execute parametric studies using simulation models to provide engineering design recommendations for business decisions
  • Create and maintain infrastructure to automate computational mechanics simulation preparation, execution, and post processing
  • Create tutorials, documentation, training material or case studies
  • Mentor other engineers to help build their technical competencies in solid mechanics and modeling


Job Role Requirements:


  • Master’s degree from a recognized university in one of the following disciplines: Mechanical Engineering, Applied Mechanics, Civil Engineering, Aerospace Engineering or related disciplines with minimum GPA 7.0 and above is required.
  • Professional work experience in developing or applying computational mechanics models for fitness for service assessment and/or design of pipelines, structures or facilities. Minimum of four-year experience is preferred.
  • Strong background/knowledge of solid mechanics, fracture mechanics, and finite element analyses/methods are required
  • Excellent communication skills & collaborative environment work experience is required – examples include (i) ability to understand the problem posed, (ii) clarity and knowledge to define work plan/procedures, (iii) dedication to pursue the work/solution, and (iv) clarity in communicating results
  • Previous work experience in the upstream oil and gas industry is preferred
  • One or more of the following technical experiences are an advantage
    • Fracture and fatigue assessment (ECA) according to API 579 and/or BS 7910 including proficiency in Crackwise, SAGE, FlawPro or equivalent
    • Use of commercial finite element analysis and mesh generation packages (ABAQUS, ANSYS, Elfen, Hypermesh, Patran)
    • Development of Users Subroutine (UMAT,VUMAT, UEL) in Abaqus
    • Automated pre and prost-processing FEA models with Python and Matlab Scripts.
    • Contact modeling for engineering structures having complex geometries
    • Computational geometry and finite element mesh generation
    • Development of material constitutive models (e.g. plasticity, creep)
    • Technical software development using FORTRAN; software development in Linux environment
