Job Description

Job description:

This is a hybrid role.

We are seeking a senior aerodynamic hydrodynamic system analyst to drive the design and development of novel solutions to customer driven problems surrounding ruggedized miniature electro-mechanical systems, systems for harsh environments (e.g. high-g, high temperature, high pressure, high vibration), and robotics and autonomous systems with a focus on aerodynamic/hydrodynamic performance.

Specific responsibilities include:
Perform analytical modeling and computational fluid dynamics analysis of complex electro-mechanical systems from an aerodynamic/hydrodynamic operational performance standpoint
Perform system-level trade studies (size, weight, and power), balancing propulsion/energetics, performance (including aero/hydro), structural design/materials, payload capacity, mission timelines/speed and cost
Able to provide insight and suggest design modifications based on analysis outcomes, and to apply analysis techniques across a range of technical disciplines
Drive solutions to complex problems with limited direction contribute towards requirements development, propose ways forward, and adapt appropriately to changes in requirements
Communicate task outcomes effectively and openly with multi-disciplinary program teams, senior management, and sponsors (both expert and non-expert)
Seeks out opportunities to help new or less experienced engineers and gives constructive feedback when appropriate
Identify program/system-level technical risks and develop and execute mitigation strategies for them
Adheres to best practices and seeks to improve practices to improve operations; Demonstrate strong organization, planning, and time management skills to achieve program goals

Qualifications:
Required Qualifications:
Bachelor of Science degree with 7+ years of experience in a relevant field such as aerospace engineering, mechanical engineering, or materials science
Master of Science degree with 5+ years of experience in a relevant field such as aerospace engineering, mechanical engineering, or materials science
Team player able to work in a fast-paced environment with demonstrated ability to balance multiple competing tasks and demands
Expertise with analysis tools such as FLUENT, MATLAB, ANSYS, etc.
Preferred Qualifications:
Experience designing in 3D CAD, specifically SolidWorks or Creo
Familiarity with machine shop tools and processes, prototyping, and environmental testing to validate analysis results
Experience writing proposals, executing feasibility studies, and generating ROM estimates of system performance/size, weight, power/cost with imperfect or incomplete information
Security Requirement:

Applicants selected for this position will be required to obtain and maintain a government security clearance.
