Mechanical Engineer

Golden, CO, USA
Posted on Sunday, September 10, 2023’s Space & Sensors team is responsible for the development of unique RF-based sensing systems, such as radar, radiometer and sonar, from architecture through implementation. The team is also responsible for the development of corresponding spacecraft and constellations in support of’s Operation Tomorrow Space, which will collect data to be integrated seamlessly into our existing forecasting and modeling systems, revolutionizing global weather intelligence.

We are looking for a Mechanical Engineer to join a cutting edge, multidisciplinary team to help us execute complex development programs. Applications include, but are not limited to, weather and climate remote sensing, navigation and situational awareness, as well as enabling the most capable weather intelligence platform in the world. As a Mechanical Engineer at, you will play a critical role in hardware and sensor development through all phases of the development cycle: requirements gathering and definition, design, development, prototyping, implementation, testing, integration, calibration, and documentation.

What you’ll do:

  • Develop and document requirements and specifications of mechanical hardware and systems then generate design concepts in conformance with requirements to arrive at optimum design configurations.
  • CreateSolidWorks CAD solid models, mass models, and Finite Element Analyses (FEA) to design robust, manufacturable, waveguides, components, and enclosures with proper fit/function.
  • Generate component drawings, assembly drawings, and interface control documents with application of GD&T per ASME Y14.5.
  • Work with machine shops to coordinate fabrication and assembly of new designs.
  • Work closely with Electrical, RF hardware, software, systems and test engineers within small engineering design teams.

What you bring:

  • MUST have B.S. in Mechanical Engineering. Entry level position for junior Mechanical Engineer with 0-5 years of experience.
  • Direct experience in mechanical component and enclosure design and analysis including mass properties, thermal, and vibration analyses using 3D modeling and finite element analysis. Experience with SolidWorks is a plus.
  • A strong systems perspective in understanding the relationship to other subsystems; requirements, ICDs, tolerance analysis, design for manufacturing, etc.
  • A self-starting leadership approach to apply strong analytical and problem solving skills to operate both as an individual contributor and as owner of a design.
  • Strong communication and technical writing skills and ability to work well collaboratively in a team environment as well as independently.
  • Experience with satellites or satellite subsystems is a plus

This position requires access to technology that is controlled under U.S. export control laws and regulations. Accordingly, this position is restricted to U.S. citizens, permanent residents and protected individuals unless and until any required licenses are obtained.

So if your passion is to design a cutting edge next-generation RADAR to provide weather intelligence to the world and have fun while doing so, then this team is for you.

If you have reached this point and you are super excited but not sure you check all the boxes - we still want to speak with you! Your passion is priceless. Other things can be learned.

Anticipated salary range is $110K-$140K, subject to local market and a candidate’s skills and experience. Health, leave and other benefits included. Relocation assistance may be offered / available.
