Experience Level
Desired Skills
  • B.S. in any engineering discipline from an accredited university
  • Proficient with CAD software such as NX, Catia, or Creo
  • Firm understanding of design for manufacturing and manufacturing principles, from drawings and GD&T to fixturing and tooling
  • Ability to quickly apply first-order principles to predict and interpret system behavior
  • One of the following experience bases:
  • 2+ years of industry experience in a design or development role
  • Collegiate internship or co-op, hands-on extracurricular projects, or similar engineering activity
  • 5+ years of industry experience in a design or development role
  • Knowledgeable with FEA tools such as ANSYS and FEMAP
  • Familiarity with fluid system design elements, including valves, tubing, flexible elements, flanges, fittings
  • Technical writing and communication including manufacturing plans and design reviews
  • Hands-on end to end project experience building complex components and assemblies
  • 1. Critical thinking: ABL engineers understand the "why" behind all design decisions, operational events and test outcomes
  • 2. Ability to deal with ambiguity: there is no roadmap and ABL engineers must be comfortable defining their own pathway to an objective
  • 3. End-to-end ownership: projects are delivered fully complete and ready for flight; there is no one to pick up the slack of partially complete work
  • Size secondary structures, lay out component assemblies
  • Determine fluid line sizes, thickness, materials, and interfaces
  • Convert system schematics to fleshed out 3D models in CAD, considering manufacturing, integration, and operational constraints
  • Performed combined loads analysis to determine interface loads
  • Develop production methodology and support initial builds
