Alton - 5 days a week onsite

Confidential Space Technology Firm

£55,000 - £65,000 + Extended benefits package

About Us: We are a leading organization in the space technology sector, dedicated to designing, developing, and operating world-class space missions for global customers. Our integrated business unit focuses on advancing our space ambitions by delivering innovative satellite systems and space data products.

Role Overview: We are seeking a highly motivated and skilled Structural Analysis Engineer to join our dynamic team. As a Structural Analysis Engineer, you will work with customers, suppliers, our leadership team, engineers, and project managers to ensure the structural integrity and performance of our spacecraft. This role demands a broad range of mechanical engineering expertise, including structural design and analysis, payload analysis, and a strong understanding of testing and validation best practices.

Key Responsibilities:
  • Structural Integrity: Ensure the structural integrity of spacecraft under your direct supervision.
  • Requirements Interpretation: Correctly interpret structural requirements from launch authorities and standards agencies.
  • Finite Element Models: Prepare Finite Element Models (FEMs) and perform Finite Element Analysis (FEA).
  • Optimization: Perform structural optimization activities.
  • Peer Reviews: Participate in peer review meetings to validate and enhance design approaches.
  • R&D Participation: Engage in research and development activities to foster innovation.
  • Mechanical Tests: Support mechanical test campaigns to validate structural designs.

Who Are You? As our Structural Analysis Engineer, you will have experience in a broad range of mechanical engineering tasks, including:
  • Familiarity with launch vehicle user manuals, particularly with inertial loading, vibration theory (harmonic and random), shock, and acoustics.
  • Understanding of relevant engineering technical standards from ECSS and NASA.
  • Expertise in methods and approaches for spacecraft-level mechanical analysis and testing.
  • Knowledge of structural mechanics and vibration theory.
  • Proficiency in fastener mechanics and failure modes.
  • Experience with novel structural materials, such as composites, and methods to analyze and test these materials.
  • Understanding of micro-vibration and its impacts.
  • Proficiency with MS Office Suite (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Project).
  • Excellent communication skills, both written and verbal.
  • Confidence in working within project delivery and bid teams.
  • Ability to interpret outputs of analysis engineers (FEA) to understand design capabilities.
  • Experience with a FEM package, preferably NASTRAN / FEMAP.

What Will You Be Doing Here? This is an exciting role for an enthusiastic, self-starting individual who enjoys working on various activities, from technical studies to small spacecraft systems and subsystems. As a Structural Analysis Engineer, you will work as part of a team delivering projects to institutional, academic, and commercial customers. You will manage your priorities independently, support others as needed, and thrive in a fast-paced environment. Your role will also involve staying updated on space industry developments and proactively identifying business and technology promotion opportunities.

Benefits:
  • Competitive salary and performance-based bonuses.
  • Comprehensive health, dental, and vision insurance.
  • Flexible work arrangements, including remote work options.
  • Opportunities for professional development and career advancement.
  • Participation in groundbreaking space missions with global impact.
