Position Summary:

This position is located in WARNER ROBINS, GA

The position will be focused on reverse engineering/designing aerospace components to be manufactured using metal powder bed fusion and fused deposition modelling additive manufacturing processes. Focus will be on determining the fit, form and function of existing aerospace components and translating this knowledge into the technical data required to produce the equivalent or superior performing part using an additive manufacturing processes. An additive manufacturing product development process is used to guide the design engineer, but it is essential that the engineer be well versed in the fundamentals of mechanical design as well as possess the ability to assess requirements and choose the most economical combination of part geometry and material properties to take full advantage of the additive manufacturing process. This will include material / design/ process risk assessments and selection, providing test plan execution, test data interpretation, and validation of part performance vs. end-use requirements. The position will also require the ability to resolve design-related performance issues.

Minimum Qualifications:

1. BS Mechanical or Aerospace Engineering
2. 5 years of engineering/technical product design experience including design ownership from concept development into full-scale production.
3. 5 years of practical experience with Computer Aided Design software
4. 5 years of experience in qualification of components and transition of technology to a validated manufacturing process
5. 5 years of experience in analysis of components in relational mechanical systems, including Finite Element Analysis.
6. Familiarity with various manufacturing processes such as casting, forging, CNC machining, injection molding, additive manufacturing, etc.
7. Familiarity with additive manufacturing design and processes
8. Demonstrated attention to detail and organizational skills. Ability to perform extensive research, catalogue findings during development activities, and write reports for both internal and external use
9. Demonstrated effective interpersonal communication and presentation skills with coworkers and clients at all levels
10. Demonstrated self-motivation with ability to work with minimal supervision
11. Demonstrated successful collaboration within a multi-disciplinary team
12. Due to the nature of this position, US citizenship or Permanent residency is required
13. Proficient with MS Office Suite software

Preferred Qualifications:

1. 3+ years of experience with additive manufacturing or cold spray, including process parameters
2. 3+ years of experience with reverse engineering or combination of design change/material substitution/process change to enhance performance, reduce cost or increase manufacturing efficiency
3. 3+ years of experience with heat treatment techniques and their effects on tailoring material properties to suit part performance requirements
4. 3+ years of experience in failure analysis, root cause determination and corrective action implementation
5. 3+ years of experience generating specifications/procedures for training purposes
6. 3+ years of directly related experience in materials and materials properties, including metals and / or metal powders
7. Working knowledge of FAA & US Air Force policies and procedures
8. Experience with Design of Experiments
9. Proficient in Dassault Systems SolidWorks CAD software
10. Experience in thermal simulation analysis and validation studies.
