The Senior Analyst is a master of FEA and CFD and creates their own codes to assess the reliability of a design.
The Senior Analyst is a computational powerhouse that steps in to save the day when the complexity of an analysis exceeds the what other team members can accomplish. Their experience allows them to see ways to breakdown a system into a network of simpler analyses, or when necessary, diligently power through all the details that make a system model work flawlessly.
Perform mechanical analysis on critical vehicle elements including primary structures, combustion chambers, and turbomachinery
Perform analysis on propellant and pressurant heat transfer and bulk propellant slosh
Creates processes, systems, and tools that paves the way for a more streamlined workflow
Review analysis performed by the structures and propulsion teams
Mentor design engineers in analysis best practices
B.S. in any engineering discipline from an accredited university
6+ years of industry experience in a design, development, or analysis role
Demonstrated analysis capability using hand-calcs and custom scripts (e.g. Python, MATLAB), as well as finite element analysis (e.g. ANSYS, ABAQUS, NASTRAN) and fluid dynamics (e.g. Fluent, CFX, Star-CCM)
Ability to program scripts in Python or MATLAB
In depth knowledge of at least three of the following items:
Technical writing and communication of analysis results and design reviews
Beyond technical prowess, ABL focuses on the following candidate characteristics. Tangible examples are the best way to highlight these during the evaluation process.
1. Critical thinking: ABL engineers understand the "why" behind all design decisions, operational events and test outcomes.
2. Ability to deal with ambiguity: there is no roadmap and ABL engineers must be comfortable defining their own pathway to an objective.
3. End-to-end ownership: projects are delivered fully complete and ready for flight; there is no one to pick up the slack of partially complete work.
