  • Extracurricular and/or project experience, such as rocketry, FSAE, Baja SAE, car restoration, robotics, etc
  • Design and build experience creating metallic structures using forming, machining, and welding processes
  • 1. Critical thinking: ABL engineers understand the "why" behind all design decisions, operational events and test outcomes
  • 2. Curiosity: ABL engineers aren't expected to follow a list of tasks. They're expected to think of the problems they are solving in new, unique ways that improve quality, efficiency, and economics

  • 4. 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
Responsibilities
  • Turn CAD designs into physical, reliable, launchable spaceflight hardware
  • Develop and implement repeatable and efficient forming, machining, and welding processes
  • Advise design and analysis engineers on designing for manufacturability for prototyping and production
