-Majority of work will be to develop and maintain component and assembly layouts, designs/CAD models, and drawings using Creo5 graphics system for liquid engine hardware.
-Activities: conceptual design creation, design layouts, GD&T application, tolerance analysis, systems design and integration, fabrication process identification, synthesis of higher-level requirements to component level requirements. Conduct trade studies and develop schedules, test plans, component specifications and procedures.

-Candidates must have significant experience with Creo & GD&T. Higher level certifications are preferred.
-Windchill experience strongly preferred.
-Mechanical Design and development Engineers research, develop, analyze, design, and support fabrication of components using engineering and scientific principles.
-Engineers are also required to analyze and verify product design and performance for adequacy and reliability.
-Support or lead investigation and resolution of hardware and process anomalies and issues identified by preventative action/corrective action boards and/or safety initiative activities.
-Must be able to interface well with other members of project or program team, management, and technical staff to define and implement engineering solutions to meet group, organization, and company objectives.
-Must be able to prepare and make presentations at both internal and customer design reviews.
