SolidWorks Veteran Joins SimScale—Cloud Native Simulation Engineering App Team Gains Leader

SimScale is an industry leader in cloud-native engineering simulation technology, based in Germany but now possibly growing in the Boston region with a key new executive added to the team.


SimScale, a leading provider of the first cloud-native engineering simulation solution, has this month announced a new addition to its executive team. Vajrang Parvate, an expert in computer-aided design (CAD) and a seasoned engineering leader, has joined SimScale as Vice President of Engineering. Boston-based, Parvate will be responsible for growing and guiding the SimScale engineering team, as well as for executing its engineering roadmap.

Cloud-Native Engineering Simulation

“SimScale is on the cutting edge of the cloud revolution for simulation technology,” said Parvate. “I’m very honored and excited to join SimScale and be able to work with such a dynamic team of smart, driven and motivated individuals.”

Parvate has over 20 years of experience in engineering organizations, most recently as Vice President of Software Engineering at Ipswitch. Prior to joining Ipswitch in 2015, he spent 17 years with SolidWorks in various roles. During his most recent time at SolidWorks, he served as the head of R&D, managing a team of more than 120 engineers globally and contributing to SolidWorks reaching fiscal year revenues of 600 million euros.

A holder of two issued patents and awarded Patents Forwards Awards in 2010 and 2014 by Dassault Systemes, Parvate has also been serving as a Member of the Board of Directors at the Open Design Alliance (ODA)—a non-profit organization dedicated to creating software development kits (SDKs) and libraries for easy development of engineering applications.

“Since SimScale’s inception, we’ve taken cloud-based simulation from an idea to a production-ready technology, being used by thousands of engineers for design projects ranging from electronic components over vehicles to tunnels and buildings,” said David Heiny, CEO and co-founder of SimScale. “With the fundamental technology in place, we’ll expand SimScale’s capabilities aggressively to further accelerate growth across industries and regions. Having build engineering software used by millions of engineers, Vajrang brings a unique wealth of experience to guide our engineering team on this path. I couldn’t be more excited about Vajrang joining the team in the next growth phase helping to realize SimScale’s vision.”
