Our Mission - to fly to space twice in a day.

This is a substantial, complex project. Are you an exceptional problem solver? Drawing from experience on similar projects you will ensure the airframe meets its requirements as well as considering design for manufacture. As a senior engineer you must also collaborate and guide team members. The Mk-II Aurora airframe is constructed predominantly from composite materials, experience in this field is expected. Additionally, aviation, space or other high-performance engineering experience is expected.

Are you driven, organised and able to work with a wide variety of people? Do you have a 'can do' attitude, are you flexible and adaptable, but will stay within appropriate processes and procedures? Then this role could be for you!

What you will do:

  • Design and manufacturing of our reusable launch vehicle system
  • Develop vehicle subsystems from high-level requirements
  • Design for manufacturing
  • Manufacture and assemble spaceplanes
  • Test and qualify flight hardware
  • Conduct compliance reporting
  • Perform peer review and release of designs
