Job Description:

Skip the airport and cut door to door travel times in half! We are Craft Aero, a sustainable aviation startup and team of expert engineers from deep tech and aerospace. We are building vertical take-off and landing aircraft for the world's busiest routes. We've built and flown custom drones. We've brought multiple automotive platforms into production. We've electrified transportation vehicles that magnetically levitate, that roll, that fly. Together, we've been learning, developing, building, testing, and preparing for this challenge our entire lives. Our bar is very high but if you join our team, you will work side by side with the best of the best and be challenged more than you have ever been challenged.

Craft Aerospace is all about making use of our existing infrastructure to make long distance travel faster, easier, and more accessible to our customers. By utilizing existing infrastructure and through the development and creation of the Craft designs, this future will become a reality.

The Craft aircraft is a novel design, featuring a blown lift configuration enabling hover and shorter takeoffs combined with traditional methods of landing. This will allow it to operate out of existing helipads and also shorter existing runways such as municipal and regional airports.

CRAFT Aerospace Technologies, Inc. (CRAFT) is developing Slipstream, a vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) aircraft intended to offer scheduled or on demand service on a high number of regional routes creating a dense mesh travel network. The aircraft is targeted toward intra-megaregion and adjacent megaregion travel but is expected to have many uses typical of similarly sized fixed wing aircraft or helicopters. The team at Craft Aerospace is looking to hire a test engineer to support rapid development of test rigs and test articles, data acquisition and test reports to aid with next prototype aircraft and future iterations.

Responsibilities:
--- Develop test solutions for in-house developed avionics & flight hardware products
--- Work with mechanical & electrical design engineers to identify test rig requirements
--- Identify appropriate sensors, signal instrumentation circuits and NI interface modules
--- Assemble the test setup including mechanical fixtures, cable routing, electrical sensor kits and NI instrumentation hardware and perform calibration & characterization tests
--- Write Labview programs, interface with flexlogger & setup data recording systems
--- Design and implement the safety circuit used for operational safety of test rigs
--- Implement Labview HIL setup for our avionics & powertrain test rigs
--- Generate professional documentation for test rig requirements, test matrices & test reports
--- Organizing & maintaining the test area and hardware setup
--- Performing tests on aircraft components, sub-assemblies and full aircrafts
--- Support wind tunnel testing and small-scale wind tunnel development
--- Responsible to coordinate with test vendors for material, components and assembly level tests

Basic Qualifications:
--- Bachelor's/Master's degree in electrical or embedded computing/systems engineering
--- High competence in NI LabView, HIL systems
--- Experience with test rig design, assembly, sensor installation, calibration and data acquisition
--- Experience in High Voltage test rig design and powertrain testing
--- Experience in electrical protection circuit design (pre-charge circuits, fuse selection, external bulk capacitors, E-stop circuits)
--- Sound understanding of mechanical and electrical design principles
--- Experience with test equipment & measurement techniques to verify & validate requirements
--- Understanding of metrology, sources of measurement error, and uncertainty analysis

Preferred Qualifications:
--- Experience in analyzing circuits and developing functional test plans
--- Experience in Simulink, Matlab, AutoCAD-E, Nx
--- Experience in wind tunnel and aircraft ground testing
--- Experience in more electric & hybrid aircraft powertrains
--- Ability to travel to vendors for testing and test site support
