BASIC QUALIFICATIONS:

Bachelor's degree in an engineering discipline
2+ years of experience in mechanical design, CAD, and hardware verification (including internships, student projects, and professional experience)

PREFERRED SKILLS AND EXPERIENCE:

3+ years of project experience in a fast-paced team environment
Strong demonstrated capability in design, CAD and FEA
Demonstrated understanding of structural analysis and failure modes of complex mechanical systems
Hands-on experience with mechanism design, prototyping, and precision mechanical assembly
Demonstrated knowledge of materials and manufacturing methods
Self-motivated with strong multi-tasking, organizational, communication, and documentation skills
Ability to work effectively across multi-disciplinary teams

ADDITIONAL REQUIREMENTS:

Must be able to work extended hours and weekends as necessary

ITAR REQUIREMENTS:

To conform to U.S. Government space technology export regulations, including the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) you must be a U.S. citizen, lawful permanent resident of the U.S., protected individual as defined by 8 U.S.C. 1324b(a)(3), or eligible to obtain the required authorizations from the U.S. Department of State.
