RF - Mechanical Engineer

Commonwealth Fusion Systems (CFS) has the fastest, lowest cost path to commercial fusion energy.

CFS is collaborating with MIT to leverage decades of research combined with new groundbreaking high-temperature superconducting (HTS) magnet technology. HTS magnets will enable compact fusion power plants that can be constructed faster and at lower cost. The mission is to deploy fusion power plants to meet global decarbonization goals as fast as possible. CFS has assembled a team of leaders in tough tech, fusion science, and manufacturing with a track record of rapid execution. Supported by the world’s leading investors, CFS is uniquely positioned to deliver limitless, clean, fusion power to combat climate change. To execute this plan, we are looking to add talented people to the team who are mission-driven and treat people well, improve our team by adding diverse perspectives and new ways of solving problems, have demonstrated exceptional results through a range of different pursuits, and have skill sets and experience that relate to this role.

The RF - Mechanical Engineer position is an integral part of the RF Heating team and will aid in the design, prototyping and testing of modules for the RF Heating System on SPARC. Specific assignments will be determined by the SRO in conjunction with the engineering staff.

This team member will:
- Design of RF power modules with a focus on manufacturability
- Work within a multi-disciplinary team of engineers and technicians to develop and qualify high-power RF equipment.
- Perform R&D and prototype builds, and perform performance testing on these devices
- Troubleshoot and resolve manufacturing discrepancies with a focus on continuous improvement
- Communicate challenges and ideas effectively to peers and leadership

The ideal candidate will have most, if not all, of these requirements:
- Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering (Master’s Preferred)
- Minimum of 5 yrs. experience with the design for production of electrical assemblies.
- Experience specifying folded sheet metal components and assemblies.
- Firm grasp of engineering concepts, theories and processes
- Superior technical and problem-solving skills and reasoning ability
- Ability to apply advanced mathematical principles and statistics to solve problems
- Good skills in mechanical CAD software, preferably Siemens NX

Additional preferred experience and/or qualifications:
- Experience in engineering change management process.
- A demonstrated understanding of thermal management of electrical and electronic assemblies.
- Perform activities such as standing or sitting for extended periods of time
- Willingness to travel or work required nights/weekends/on-call occasionally

CFS team members thrive in a fast-paced, dynamic environment and have demonstrated exceptional results through a range of different pursuits. We all tightly align with our company values of integrity, execution, impact and self-critique. As we grow, we are looking to add talented people who are mission driven and bring diverse perspectives and new ways of solving problems.

At CFS, we deeply value diversity and are an equal opportunity employer by choice. We consider all qualified applicants equally for employment. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, ancestry, citizenship status, protected veteran status, religion, physical or mental disability, marital status, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, age, or any other basis protected by law, ordinance, or regulation.
