Spacex Jobs – Build Engineer

Website SpaceX

Job Description:

The build engineer role is responsible for design for manufacturability concepts through integration and testing of the full vehicle, and everything in between. Build engineers will be highly engaged on the primary and secondary structures of the vehicle, including designing tooling (assembly aide, welding, part fixturing, etc.) and processes (welding, large part movement, large structure integration) to rapidly build early versions of the Starship and Super Heavy vehicles. Further along in the build, this role will be responsible for items such as integration operations sequencing, and working with technicians on installing flight-critical hardware on the vehicle. Throughout the build, engineers will be responsible for documenting processes, and driving continual improvement to them for future builds. Furthermore, build engineers will be expected to sometimes act as de-facto supervisors and advisors to production technicians, welders, and other skilled labor partners. Build engineers will spend time both in the office and on-site (local production floor and remote build sites) to execute on the mission to build an orbital-capable Starship and Super Heavy faster than anyone thought possible.

Job Responsibilities:

  • Coordinate and execute development, qualification, and acceptance testing of systems and tooling needed to meet hardware deadlines
  • Develop production procedures/processes and manage the transition of parts and assemblies from development to high rate production
  • Create original CAD models and prints for flight and/or tooling components
  • Work closely with vehicle analysts and design team to ensure solutions meet the requirements for vehicle design as well as the manufacturing processes
  • Lead the on-site design engineering contact for the efficient build of parts and assemblies
  • Execute design for manufacturability changes to enhance production efficiency

Job Requirements:

  • Process development, facility and line layouts, error-proofing
  • Experience with fluid dynamics, finite element, or related computer-based modeling
  • Experience leading operation-critical part mechanical design, including basic structures calculations and design considerations
  • Experience with large steel structure construction (civil, naval, or mechanical)
  • Experience with finite element analysis (FEA) software packages
  • Previous experience working on SpaceX vehicles or builds
  • Experience with Unigraphics NX and Teamcenter CAD and PLM systems

Qualification & Experience:

  • Bachelor’s degree in aerospace engineering, mechanical engineering or other engineering field
  • 2+ years of manufacturing design experience (student project team and internship experience qualifies)
