Thermal Motor 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 2024. 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. Commercializing the solution requires the establishment of a new clean aviation ecosystem, encompassing hydrogen production from renewable energy sources and tackling public perception of safety.

Responsibilities

  • Develop thermal and fluid distribution networks 1D & 3D models for electric machine thermal management and lubrication
  •  Analyze and verify preliminary and detailed designs with analytical calculations and/or numerical (FEA/CFD)
  • Develop processes to incorporate experimental and analytical techniques in product design and testing
  • Perform lab tests including selecting test equipment, collecting and processing data
  • Correlate and refine models using tested data
  • Collaborate with other team members of the engineering staff to support equipment and system design efforts
  • Ensure timely completion of project deliverables including designs, analyses and other documentation design, qualification, and certification
  • Perform a variety of tasks, lead and/or support development activities
  • Participate in suppliers' meetings as needed
  • Design packages – detailed drawings, analysis reports, BOMs, assembly instructions

Experience and Qualifications

  • Demonstrated experience in mechanical structure design applied to electric motor
  • Experience in finite element modeling and analyses codes
  • Experience and knowledge of engine static strength analysis methods, finite element analysis, and strain life fatigue methods
  • Knowledge of maintenance and repair practices used in the aerospace industry
  • Proficiency in load and fatigue analysis applied to Propulsion system and mainly to electric motor, shaft, gear box, bearing 
  • Experience in stress analysis of metallic structure/frame 
  • Strong communication and interpersonal skills
  • Experience with structural analysis methods and repair principles (fatigue and corrosion, stress analysis, statics, materials strength, material characteristics, repair techniques, damage tolerance methods used in maintenance programs)
  • Experience in MatLab/Simulink

Diversity and Inclusion

As a young company in the aviation industry, we need people of different backgrounds that bring a plethora of skills, perspectives, and mindsets to the table that can spur originality, imagination, and creativity
