Job Description

Structural Engineer

Contract 3+ years, 40 hours weekly

US Citizen, Interim clearance is sufficient to start.
-This person will start 100% onsite until they are fully onboarded/up and running. After the first 6-9 months, the person will be able to work 1-2 days/week remotely.

The Group is seeking an engineer with expertise in structural engineering for sea, ground, air, and space-based payloads.

Description:
Analyzes, researches and develops structural engineering specifications involving metals, non-metallic or composite structural materials for product design, or operation of product to include structures, mechanical, hydraulic, electrical and electronics, power plant, armament, heating and ventilating, equipment and maintenance designs. Analyzes damage tolerance, durability, producibility, cost, safety, design allowable and structural modeling. Specific structural engineering specialties may include dynamics and loads, stability and stress fatigue and thermal analysis. Utilizes and validates 3-D and digital modeling to communicate and support production. Tools utilized such as CATIA, IDEAS, Siemens PLM Software NX, ProEngineer and a variety of analytical software applications.

xperience with predicting the mechanical behavior of structures using finite element analysis for static and dynamic environments, performing vibration and shock environmental testing, and developing tests to characterize the behavior of structural components is desired. The successful candidate will be a part of an interdisciplinary engineering team from concept development to integration and testing in the development of operational prototype hardware. Candidate should have ability to perform hand calculations in conjunction with utilization of CAD and finite element analysis software, such as FEMAP, NASTRAN, SOLIDWORKS, and ANSYS.
