Job Details

Security clearance: Ability to obtain and maintain a DoD clearance.

We are seeking Mechanical Design Engineers for supporting several engineering projects and programs across our company.
Successful applicants will be highly motivated, innovative, self-starters with strong mechanical, technical, and problem-solving skills, and will have earned a BS/MS/PhD in Mechanical Engineering or a closely related degree.

We work on exciting, technically challenging, research & development programs where multidisciplinary teams work closely to address difficult national security needs.
This position will allow applicants to collaborate with subject matter experts and make meaningful contributions to project teams and their objectives.
It will give applicants exposure to all parts of the R&D process, from first-principle analysis through to prototyping and testing of integrated systems.

This position will be responsible for supporting senior engineers with a variety of engineering tasks from design and development to assembly and testing of complex electromechanical systems.
A solid working knowledge of CAD software (e.g. SolidWorks) is required as well as standard office software skills (e.g. Microsoft Office).
A basic understanding of shop tools is desirable.
A successful applicant will possess good technical, problem solving, and communication skills, and they will be mentored by a professional engineer.
