About the role

JOB PURPOSE:

At H3X, we are developing advanced electric propulsion systems to enable sustainable aviation. Our first product is a 250kW (330HP) integrated motor drive in a 18kg (40lb) package. It combines the electric motor, inverter, and gearbox into a single unit, resulting in an ultra-high-power density solution for electric aircraft. We have over $100M in LOIs for this unit already and are ready to hit the ground running.

  • Humble and open mind: willingness to accept feedback and learn, consistently improve upon yourself and the product you will be responsible for
  • A high degree of emotional intelligence: ability to collaborate closely with coworkers in a respectful and empathetic manner
  • Fundamentally curious and motivated my first principles
  • U.S. Person status is required as this position needs to access export-controlled data.

PREFERRED QUALIFICATIONS:

  • Application of technical skills outside the classroom (examples: Formula SAE, solar car, personal projects)

BENEFITS:

  • Health insurance: medical, vision, dental
