Job Description:

Project Engineer, Test Equipment

Contract position (2) openings, 40 hours weekly 12+ months
Hybrid Work schedule, 3 days Onsite 2 Day WFH

Position is NON Exempt, OT is 1.5X

Candidates MUST have Control Account Manager (CAM) in Aerospace & Earned Value Management Experience (EVMS)

This position is responsible for development of complex electrohydraulic, electromechanical, hydromechanical, mechanical and electropneumatic components and systems that will become the new products of Client. The incumbent, a fully trained professional, plans and conducts efforts requiring judgment in the independent evaluation, selection, and substantial adaptation and modification of standard engineering techniques, procedures, and criteria. Typically, the Project Engineer devises new approaches for the problems encountered.


Expected annual production sales from projects: $4M to $10M

May have direct reports.


A variety of technical functions exist within the Design/Development Engineering Department. Reporting to the Chief Engineer typically are Associate Engineers, Development Engineers, Design and Project Engineers, Senior Design and Senior Project Engineers, Senior Staff Engineers, and Principal Engineers, as well as Section Heads or Group Leaders. The Project Engineer typically reports to a Section Head or Group Leader within the department and on demanding projects he/she might work under the leadership of a Senior Project Engineer. The incumbent receives instructions on specific assignment objectives, complex features, and possible solutions. He/She is expected to make independent and unreviewed decisions on routine technical matters. However, assistance is furnished on unusual problems and work is periodically reviewed for application of sound professional judgment.

The Project Engineer is a key contributor to the analysis, conceptual design, development, and testing of complex control hardware used on military, commercial and NASA vehicles and equipment. The products of Client generally are unique for each customer. Therefore, most new applications require a special, tailored design, even though adaptation of existing designs always should be considered where appropriate. The Project Engineer generally will operate as part of a design/development team, which includes other Department engineers with his/her primary concern being system or component performance and integration. The incumbent will coordinate the work of drafters, technicians, design analysts, manufacturing engineers and others who assist in specific assignments as needed.

In the early stages of a new program, the project team will consult with the customer, establish the problem statement, conceive of potential hardware solutions to the problem, often through extensive trade studies, and then create a successful technical proposal. This phase is critical in that it establishes the basis for future design, and for contract negotiations. Under the technical direction of the Section Head or the team's lead engineer, the Project Engineer will then guide the evolution of the conceptual design, technical project planning, detail design, and development testing. This requires frequent travel and the organization of presentations to customers.

To be considered for the position of Project Engineer, a candidate should have a minimum of an MS Degree, preferably in Mechanical, Aeronautical or Electrical Engineering plus three years of design/development engineering experience. As an alternative, the candidate could have a PhD, or a BS Degree plus six years of design/development engineering experience. To fulfill the demands of design and development of new products the individual must have self?starting instincts and strong analytical skills. Seasoned knowledge of closed?loop control systems, mechanical hardware designs, and good communication skills are also necessary.


Contribute to the development of new product requirements through consulting with customers and sales personnel. Validate conceptual problem solutions by performing trade studies and analyses. Be a key contributor to the preparation of successful proposal designs, cost estimates, and technical volume write?ups. Operate as a key element in a team of creative, independent individuals. Represent Client in a manner consistent with its technical reputation. Create reliable designs through a comprehensive experimental development test program. Document designs, analyses, and test results with accurate and concise reports.
