Exosonic is a startup developing a quiet supersonic airliner to advance supersonic travel around the world without restrictions on overland flight. This means giving travelers the opportunity to travel from places like San Francisco to New York in only three hours, and making intercontinental travel possible in a day trip. In doing this, we are focused on building a sustainable future that everyone can take part in. Our small team includes experts with many years of aircraft development experience across several programs.
We are seeking a full-time performance engineer to assist in the conceptual design of this vehicle and related projects.
We are currently a fully remote team, but we will establish an office in the Los Angeles area when conditions allow. Ample time will be provided for relocation.
- Incorporate discipline-specific analysis results into vehicle-level performance analysis
- Develop low-fidelity tools for a variety of disciplines
- Perform trade studies and conduct numerical optimization
- Provide input on analysis direction for other disciplines
- Clearly document findings and succinctly communicate them
- Assist with other technical tasks as appropriate
Required Qualifications and Experience
- Typical candidates for this role will range from those in their final year of an undergraduate program to those with a master’s degree and a couple years of experience
- U.S. person status (work requires access to export controlled tools and information)
- Knowledge of aircraft performance characteristics important in the early design process
- Experience with programming in languages such as Python, Julia, or C++
Desired Qualifications and Experience
- Experience in analysis of supersonic aircraft
- Experience developing software for aircraft performance prediction
- Knowledge of common software development tools and processes
- Comprehensive Health Care
- Parental Leave
- 401(k) Matching
- Work from Home Equipment Reimbursement
- Support for Continuing Education
- Flexible Vacation
- Stock Options
We incorporate low-boom aerodynamic shaping techniques into our aircraft design. This is important so that when we fly supersonic, our sonic boom is merely a soft thump on the ground vs a loud thunderous crack. With the reduced noise footprint, we can fly supersonic overland to decrease long-haul flight times anywhere. In addition to low boom techniques, we incorporate all the other standard aerospace design tools: propulsion, structures, weight estimation, controls, etc.
