The Structures Designer designs all structural components of test stands and other ground infrastructure under guidance of and close collaboration with functional design engineers, supported by structural analyses where needed. He/she considers mechanical and thermal loads and picks appropriate materials in order to arrive at a design that satisfies safety requirements. Materials are also selected with environmental factors like ambient temperature, corrosion, vibrations and material compatibility in mind. The Structures Designer makes use of his/her knowledge of suitable machining techniques and mechanical joining methods in creating designs that can be manufactured and assembled in an efficient manner. He/she uses SolidWorks to generate isometrics and derive technical drawings as well as BOMs for procurement, while weighing costs and taking local availability of materials and manufacturing resources into account.

More specifically, you will:

  • Design structural components, e.g.:
    1. Thrust structures for engine testing
    2. Flame deflectors
    3. Valve-, pipe- and tank supports
    4. Tanking arms
  • Issue technical manufacturing and assembly drawings for in-house as well as external manufacturing
  • Issue bills of material (BOMs) and drive procurement of COTScomponents
  • Work in close contact with the functional design engineers, manufacturing and assembly staff throughout all stages of the project up until completion




  • Technician with training in product design, system planner, or similar
  • Knowledge of machining techniques including milling, turning, boring and cutting
  • Knowledge of mechanical joining processes including welding, soldering, bolting, adhesion
  • Flexible attitude towards highly iterative designs, especially in the early design phases
  • Passionate about new space, curious and eager to learn
  • Driven to deliver and constantly push the boundaries
  • Take ownership and accountability for your own actions and mistakes
  • Humble and willing to go our of your way to help others
  • Can-do attitude and outstanding communication skills
  • Fluent English


  • Industry experience design and procurement of structural components
  • Industry experience in civil engineering
  • Industry experience working in medium- to large-scale plants that deal with fluid-handling
  • Proficient in SolidWorks
  • German knowledge is a plus
