Senior Aerodynamics Engineer

Company Details

Boosting the small satellite industry

In this position you will predict aerodynamic environments, in ascent and re-entry phase, while providing design solutions for MIURA 1 and MIURA 5 launch vehicles. This position implies occasional travels to Teruel and Huelva.


  • Building Computational Fluid Dynamic meshes for aerodynamic force and moment predictions (including creating geometries, meshing, running simulations, validating, and post processing output information).
  • Analyse External Aerodynamics of Launch Vehicles and Optimize Launch Vehicles’ geometries from a fluidic perspective.
  • Correlation of Flight Test Data and wind tunnel test data to CFD Models.
  • Contribute performing heat transfer and associated aerothermodynamics analysis on various mission phases, including atmospheric re-entry scenarios.

Required competences

  • BSc in Mechanical Engineering, Aerospace Engineering, or related discipline.
  • Minimum of 7+ years of industry experience.
  • Experience and proficiency working with commercial CFD software, such as ANSYS
  • Experience with spacecraft aerothermodynamic simulations.
  • Experience with re-entry aerothermodynamics analysis and simulations.
  • Experience with coupled fluid-structure-thermal interaction calculations.
  • Experience with structural load estimation and calculation via CFD analysis.
  • Knowledge of Thermal Modelling and Simulation tools.
  • Proficiency with programming languages, such as Matlab.
  • Help selecting proper sensor and data acquisition systems for capturing aerodynamic data and model correlation.
  • Knowledge of CFD best practices and troubleshooting.
  • Clear communication and presentation skills.
  • Ability to work independently.

Valued competences

  • Experience with Wind Tunnel Testing is a plus.
  • Experience with Unsteady and Transient Aerodynamic Simulations is a plus.
  • Experience with steady-state and transient simulations is a plus.
  • Experience with reactive flows, injection, and atomization processes is a plus.


  • 7+ years’ experience with Computer Fluid Dynamics (CFD) software.
  • 7+ years’ experience with CAD software, preferred Siemens NX.
  • Experience in thermal
