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.

H3X is looking to hire a mechanical engineering co-op this fall to support the prototype development across all aspects of the HPDM-250. This is not an ordinary “co-op”. You will be given the full responsibility of a mechanical engineer.

RESPONSBILITIES:

  • Close collaboration with small engineering team to take parts through their full lifecycle
  • Develop parts and assemblies in SolidWorks
  • Perform structural & thermal analysis as required
  • Generate drawings
  • Conduct design reviews
  • Source parts, assemble, test, & iterate designs
  • Quickly adapt to design changes

REQUIRED QUALIFICATIONS:

  • Pursuing a Bachelor’s or Graduate Degree in Mechanical Engineering or similar
  • GPA of 3.0 or higher
  • Hands-on experience assembling mechanical systems
  • SolidWorks proficient
  • Excellent written and verbal communication
  • Exceptional understanding of fundamentals
  • Task execution-oriented mentality
  • Willingness to learn quickly
  • U.S. Person status is required as this position needs to access export-controlled data.

PREFERRED QUALIFICATIONS:

  • Experience with manufacturing processes (machining, Metal AM, & composites)
  • Experience with producing 2D part drawings & GD&T
  • Experience with linear structural FEA
  • The engineering team is small, but highly knowledgeable and willing to assist/teach. You will be expected to be self-motivated and will be held responsible for your assigned parts.

BENEFITS:

  • Health insurance: medical, vision, dental
  • Mental health coverage
  • Gym membership stipend
  • Flexible hours (deliverable-based goals)
  • Flexible-time off (just need manager approval)
  • Relocation package
  • Company laptop
  • Weekly company happy hours
