As a Mechanical Engineer in the Aerospace and Defense Practice, the qualified candidate will lead and direct specialized design teams, and manage design and fabrication sub-consultants, working with other Engineers, Architects and System Design Specialists for design and fabrication of critical assemblies, mechanisms, and related infrastructure supporting vertical and horizontal launch vehicle related projects.


The Mechanical Engineer will have earned their Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering from an accredited university and must have at least eight years of design engineering and/or program/project management experience. Experience should include, but not be limited to, design of specialized assemblies, tooling development and analysis, and precision machined components. The ideal candidate must have an interest in pursuing a career involving design of specialized facilities and systems in support of rocket assembly and launch infrastructure as well as other missile/defense related facilities. The successful candidate will have the skills to organize the engineering staff assigned, enjoy concept development and communicating design concepts and options with staff and clients, mentor less experienced engineering staff, and will understand how to create complete design drawings and specifications from a blank sheet, suitable for third party construction/fabrication contractor bidding purposes.
