Design engineer

January 2018 Mojave, CA
“Working for a relatively small company has given me the responsibility of several spaceship systems, which one would not get at a huge company. The size has also allowed me to work with cross functional teams including stress, structures, propulsion, and manufacturing. I've gotten hands on experience with manufacturing carbon fiber parts and also gotten a lot of design experience from this job. The team is awesome and our goal of sending paying passengers to space is inspiring.”
