Company Description

We are a stealth mode startup in the greater Boston area developing eVTOL passenger vehicles with a novel Propulsion/Guidance Platform for deployment in the burgeoning Urban Air Mobility Space.

Job Description

We are looking for someone to perform work with a specialization in aerospace or mechanical engineering to perform tasks in design, manufacturing and testing.

Responsibilities will include:
  • Design of aerospace vehicles, flight critical systems and structures, fabrication of composites structures and tooling, utilization of rapid prototyping methods
  • Perform a variety of simulations such as CFD, Stress, Thermodynamics,structural dynamics
  • Support research efforts in conceptual-level aerodynamic design, analysis, and optimization, including multi-disciplinary and multi-fidelity design, using scripting platforms like Matlab/Simulink and Python
  • Investigate evolving technologies, materials and manufacturing processes in support of ongoing and future programs and conceive novel aircraft systems and configurations leveraging developments in these areas
  • Support requirements definition, conceptual/preliminary layout, and detailed analysis for air vehicle systems
  • Design, build, and test prototype systems and structures
  • Manage the design of hardware, the acquisition of required materials, vendor relations, and the instruction of assembly and testing
  • Anticipate needs, identify problems, think creatively, and rapidly produce reliable and cost-effective solutions

  • Bachelor's, Master's or Ph.D. in Aerospace Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, or related degree with 2+ years of applicable experience
  • Ability to perform trade studies from "first principles" and basic engineering fundamentals to drive a design from inception forward
  • Demonstrated ability to rapidly prototype and vet design concepts
  • Candidate must be hands-on and motivated
  • Strong knowledge of manufacturing and prototyping techniques
  • Proficient in using programming environments, and spreadsheets to develop projects and sub-systems from concept to reality
  • Proficiency in CAD (SolidWorks, Inventor, CATIA, NX, etc.) is required
  • Knowledge of and experience in CFD, Stress, Thermodynamics, structural dynamics
  • Experience with OpenVSP will be preferred
  • Excellent writing and presentation skills
  • Ability to think creatively and independently about how to turn vague inputs into executable objectives

Preferred experience with:
  • Multidisciplinary optimization and vehicle sizing
  • Using first principles aerodynamics for design-based analysis
  • Standard CAD packages (e.g. SolidWorks or CATIA)
  • A range of aerodynamic, structural, vibratory and propulsive analysis tools, at several levels of fidelity
  • Validation of analysis results against other sources, such as flight test Physical Requirements
  • CFD, Stress, Thermodynamics, aeroelastics, structural dynamics

Additional Information

Our innovative startup seeks driven, high performance, high energy independent achievers who can work on a multidisciplinary team to build a groundbreaking electric VTOL platform that will be the foundation for a range of high performance ultra quiet Vertical Flight Systems.
