Thermal Modeling Engineer H/F

Thermal Modeling Engineer

The world leader in the design and production of high-tech batteries, Saft (4300 employees worldwide, including 1450 in France spread over 4 sites), has been part of the Total group since 2016. Saft works with a network of global partners and their batteries power equipment in a wide range of sectors, from aerospace and rail to energy and electronics.


Since 2018, Saft has been leading a European alliance to develop the solid-state battery of the future, which means a significant investment in R&D. Well underway, this project needs more Thermal Modeling Engineers who are passionate about working on developing the technology of tomorrow.


Saft needs employees who love to work on a wide range of applications and projects that provide daily challenges.

Batteries play a crucial role in the energy transition; that’s why Saft aims to develop new environmentally friendly solutions and to reduce their carbon footprint.


To support their growth and development, Saft is recruiting Thermal Modeling Engineers, based in Nersac (16) near Angoulême or in Bordeaux (33).
