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.

The team at Craft Aerospace is looking to hire a structural analysis engineer to support the development and analysis of aircraft structures such as fuselage, high lifts and mechanical airframe systems for the next prototype aircraft and future iterations.

--- Model preparation and finite element analysis (geometry cleanup, material assignment, mesh generation, boundary setup and solving the simulation)
--- Trade studies to narrow down design choices
--- Detailed static, modal and dynamic analysis for detailed design
--- Performing analysis on variety of composite materials and layups to reduce mass and optimize the design
--- Active participation in design, manufacturing, assembly and testing of structural components
--- Supporting composite process development and testing
--- Writing technical reports
--- Collaboration with aerodynamics, mechanical designers and mechanism engineers
--- Perform thermal analysis for propulsion and energy system components

--- B.Sc. in Mechanical or Aerospace Engineering. M.Sc. or higher degree is preferred
