Would you like to be part of the industry leading team in developing and designing advanced aerodynamic solutions for the cycling and mobility industries? Are you self-driven, a keen and fast learner and a good team player who likes working in a highly agile, small business environment?

Are you passionate about design, engineering and want to bring high performing products to reality?

If yes, we may have a job for you!


The specific tasks….

As a DESIGN ENGINEER (m/f/d) you will work primarily on CAD projects using the CATIA V5 package. The role will include designing all types of products for the cycling and mobility industries, but also producing parts and test rigs for research and development activities. You will be involved in launching and processing CFD simulations and finally also in conducting diverse R&D tests in the wind tunnel and in the laboratory.


Do you have…

  • Technically oriented education in a relevant related field such as Mechanical Engineering or Industrial Design.
  • Good CATIA V5 surfacing and solid modelling skills, as well as the ability to build and work with structured parametric models.
  • Knowledge of structural engineering (FEM), manufacturing processes, and 2D drawing skills would be desirable.
  • Some experience with Solidworks would be nice to have.
  • Experience setting up and running scientific test measurements.
  • Ideally 2 years’ experience working as a design engineer.
  • Interest in aerodynamics and cycling.
  • Fluent English. Ideally good level of German.
  • Hands-on skills. –You will be required to assemble parts you have designed, and to run scientific tests.

    We offer…

    • Being part of a fun, small team with a value based approach and a desire to do great work, with social and environmental responsibility.
    • The potential to make a real difference in a small but growing organisation.
    • Hybrid working has always been a part of Swiss Side, so some working from home is a normal part of our culture.
    • A modern office space directly on an endless forest and very close to the Zürisee.
