- Provide analysis of subsystems structural components using current finite element methods and classical analysis methods. In this role you will be determining the most efficient, yet sufficiently thorough method of solving problems. You will be relying on your extensive knowledge of aerospace materials, structural testing, and basic structural analysis concept such as strength of materials, stress analysis, and structural dynamics
- Work directly with Mechanical Engineering to gather and understand the project design requirements
- Develop finite element models of components and assemblies using FEMAP and solving them using NASTRAN
- Prepare product reports by collecting, analyzing, and summarizing information
- Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering or related field is required
- 3 – 5 year’s experience with spacecraft structural analysis is preferred
- Troubleshoot manufacturing and assembly issues
- Multi-task, be a self starter, work under pressure and meet deadlines consistently.
- Experience with PDM / PLM software
- Knowledge of GD&T.
- Experience with SolidWorks or similar CAD software

Bigelow Aerospace was founded in 1999. Its headquarters are located in North Las Vegas, Nevada.
Our mission is to provide affordable destinations serving many diverse uses and customers, whether those destinations are located in low Earth orbit, deep space or on a foreign body.
In 2006 and 2007, we successfully launched and deployed Genesis I and II. On April 8, 2016 we launched the BEAM, Bigelow Expandable Activity Module, on contract with NASA to the International Space Station. The BEAM is a technology demonstrator to promote the viability of expandable habitat technology.
