We are designing the first human-rated, commercial-ready version of our technology. We are looking for a sharp, creative mechanical engineer to work directly with our head of mechanical engineer (who honored as a Top 25 Prolific Inventor by the The US Patent and Trademark Office) to rapidly evaluate concepts, develop models, and create prototypes.
At skyTran, we operate in a very open and rigorous way, challenging each other for the better of the company. The right candidate should be comfortable defending and debating design choices, as well as question others.
Take whiteboard concepts and turn into 3D models.
Analyze alternatives for performance, cost, and producibility.
Work directly with electrical engineers to scope the entire electromechanical system.
Interface with simulation engineers to understand the effect of design decisions on the system dynamics.
Participate in the rigorous subsystems engineering phase to validate designs against system requirements.
Lead the fabrication of prototypes as part of the validation process.
Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering with 2-5 years industry experience, OR Master’s degree with substantial project experience.
Coursework in Design or Drafting preferred.
Demonstrated proficiency in SolidWorks CAD.
Automotive or aerospace experience a plus.
Experience with GD&T (ASME Y-14.5M) strongly preferred.
Experience with PDM strongly preferred
FEA capabilities a plus - SolidWorks Sim, Ansys, or COMSOL..
Hands-on experience a plus - shop fabrication, assembly, maintenance, and/or mechatronics.
