Aircraft Mechanical Integration Engineer

ZeroAvia is a leader in zero-emission aviation, flying the world’s largest hydrogen-electric aircraft since September 2020. Its focus is the design and commercialization of hydrogen-powered aviation solutions to address a variety of markets, initially targeting short-haul, sub-regional commercial flights up to 500 miles.

To date, ZeroAvia has secured the UK CAA and FAA experimental permit to fly for its 6 seat aircraft powered by hydrogen-electric powertrain, passed significant flight tests, and is on track for commercial deliveries by 2023.

Its achievements to date were rewarded by the UK prime minister by inviting ZeroAvia as a member to the UK Jet Zero Council.

ZeroAvia’s powertrain development focuses on integrating hydrogen storage tanks, fuel cell systems, and electric motors, delivering a solution that will be not only without carbon emissions but also cheaper to operate.

Working closely with the drivetrain development team and system engineering manager, you will be responsible for the integration of the drivetrain and associated systems into the airframe. You will be liaising with all other technical specialisations in order to produce comprehensive design solutions and working closely with the engineering team to develop the optimum drivetrain integration.

You will be integrated into a dynamic and fast-paced development team, overcoming challenges and producing innovation solutions. The successful candidate is self-motivated and energetic, with a strong drive to ensure successful outcomes.

Main responsibilities
- Creation of schemes to provide innovative solutions for drivetrain integration to existing airframes and associated mechanical and electrical systems
- Development of the schemes into CAD models, drawings and design data
- Provide technical support and guidance to the drivetrain sub-system teams
- Work with sub-system technical leads to define system integration design requirements
- Provide design requirements to external suppliers and manufacturers
- Liaise closely with internal and external manufacturers to ensure smooth implementation of drivetrain integration requirements
- Assist with the development of engineering change orders and recording of airframe modifications
- Assist with fault finding and design improvements in liaison with internal and external suppliers
- Provide input to project schedules through regular and clear progress reports
- Support bids by providing technical solutions, estimates and plans
- Present information during internal and external design reviews

Diversity and inclusion

ZeroAvia is an equal opportunity employer and as a young company in the aviation industry, we value diversity and need people of different backgrounds that bring a plethora of skills, perspectives, and mindsets to the table that can spur originality, imagination, and creativity.
