Salary: £40000.00 - £45000 per annum

Job Title: Mechanical Design Engineer

Salary: Up to £45,000/annum

Location: Northamptonshire

Start Date: ASAP

This is a new appointment resulting from recent CFD research into a radically new ultra high-speed, high efficiency aero/marine vehicle for intercontinental freight transportation.

The successful applicant will be responsible for the construction of a Proof of Concept (POC) vehicle based on existing CFD runs. The bulk of the POC will be 3D printed in steel and carbon fibre on a large in-house 3D printer with a build size of 7m x 2.5m x 2m.

Components will be drawn up and optimised for strength, weight and stiffness in Fusion 360 or similar CAD packages such as SolidWorks, CATIA, Inventor, Creo. Generative design will be used to minimize weight.

The POC will be constructed in Brackley. The POC will be autonomous with stability and control based on existing CFD runs. A triple redundant computer will control all functions.

An aeronautical degree would be desirable but the ability to create successful innovative designs is more important. Practical experience in the workings of machinery is also important.

This is a permanent position with a long-established company and provides the opportunity to get in on the ground floor of a major new industry.

We are looking for a candidate with at least three years' experience working in Design Engineering and ideally expereince in 3D Printing.

Key Requirement:

  • Expereinced in the use of Fusion 360. Those with SolidWorks, CATIA, NX, Inventor or Creo are welcome to apply.
  • Must be a competant Mechanical Design Engineer able to solve engineering problems.
  • Must have some expereince with 3D Printing
  • Ideally familar with FEA
