Aerospace Design Engineer

Uses creativity and the discipline of engineering that applies principles of physics and material science specifically towards the design of a mechanical structure. The designer will design components and/or systems based on a set of requirements and constraints, and oversee the project from concept to production.

  • Design mechanical / structural systems and products based on set given and derived requirements
  • Perform related analysis (simple FEA) and classical hand calculations to optimize design of product
  • Modify designs based on cost and manufacturing capabilities
  • Work with structural analysis to verify capabilities of structure before fabrication
  • Holds design reviews and presentations among peers to gain design feedback
  • Define verification methods such as component, system-level and airplane level testing, and participate in that testing
  • Assures system and product quality by confirming fabrication, assembly, and installation processes
  • Prepares product reports by collecting, analyzing, and summarizing information
  • Provides engineering information by answering questions and requests
  • Prepares manufacturing drawings to ASME Y14.5 standards using GD&T for manufacturability and repeatability
  • Troubleshoot manufacturing and assembly issues
  • Record notes, design changes, and test results on ENBs
  • Multi-task, be a self starter, work under pressure and meet deadlines consistently
  • Creation and maintenance of a Bill of Materials for one or more projects.
  • Ongoing design reviews/brainstorming sessions with engineers/designers working on projects under your control.


  • Minimum 3 years mechanical design experience
  • ASME Y14.5 standards
  • Experience in airplane structural design principles and in coordinating across multiple disciplines to develop design (e.g., Materials, Structures, Aerodynamics) to ensure compliance with all requirements
  • CAD experience required (knowledge of NX preferred)
  • Intermediate to advanced knowledge of Solidworks a plus
  • Experience with the design of aircraft landing gear systems and hydraulic actuators a plus
  • U.S. Citizen or Permanent Resident (Green Card)
