Near Earth is looking for a Mechanical Engineer who will design, analyze, test, and contribute to the production of prototype and released systems for autonomous aviation. This role is part of the hardware development group which supports various projects across the company. Members of the group perform a mix of long-term design and build efforts as well as quick support tasks. Often the Mechanical Engineer steps into a project team to assist them with defining requirements, designing, building, documenting, and debugging tasks, as well as interfacing with the production department for assembly and integration work. These efforts are to support and lead development of systems that range from breadboards, to proof-of-concept systems, to pre-production prototypes, to production released systems.
We are looking for candidates who are passionate about electromechanical system trends and state-of-the-art technology, and are also self-starting, empathetic team players, and strong communicators. The ideal candidate for this position can multitask effectively, is comfortable working on a quick development tempo, enjoys the challenge of changing requirements and priorities, and most importantly enjoys bringing new autonomy technology to life.
