Job Description

Who we Are 

To accomplish their goals, the world’s leading scientists, research institutions, and aerospace programs require highly specialized products and technology. We develop them.

At Newton we develop the products and technology that move the world forward. We create products, technology, and mission-critical components that advance science, exploration, and humanity. We provide full life cycle engineering and product development support—from creating high-precision pointing mechanisms for spacecraft to solving shock isolation problems for the US Army, and everything in between.

Who we are Looking For

Are you looking to solve engineering problems that advance science and technology? We are looking to grow our team with a Junior Electro-Mechanical Engineer who has a demonstrated ability to incorporate creative yet elegant solutions. We are looking for an engineer who has a never-ending passion for learning, an engineer who is just as comfortable in front of a computer working on CAD or Control Systems as they are putting a robotic arm together. We are looking for an engineer who is a self-starter, is continually finding ways to improve processes, and also enjoys working in a team environment. If you are a well-rounded engineer who wants to take on and solve a broad set of engineering challenges, let’s talk. We promise a fast-moving environment where every day presents a learning opportunity while working on unique projects.
