At Hermeus, you'll have the opportunity to drive the design of airframe architecture of high-speed (hypersonic) point-to-point vehicles. You'll work through the challenges of handling extreme thermal loads on the airframe and developing vehicle from concept to flight. You'll be involved in every step of the process including turning the wrenches. We'll do the analysis but not the paralysis. This position will report directly to the CTO.

Design of complicated mechanisms, linkages, actuators, etc.
Develop layout and sizing of a multiple high-speed aircraft products
Develop detailed design and fabrication work orders
Develop ground support equipment and tooling for in-house manufacture and integration
Conduct complex stress analysis for airframe structures and subassemblies
Lead, develop, and document ground and flight test campaigns for aircraft structural qualification
Investigate design factors such as function, materials, performance, interchangeability, weight, stress and strength requirements
Direct communication with vendors and technicians in manufacturing
Required Skills & Experience:
Bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering, aerospace engineering, or similar
Experience designing, fabricating, and testing complex engineering systems
Experience with CAD programs (OnShape, Pro-E, SolidWorks, NX, or similar)
