About the company:

BETA Technologies is creating an electric transportation ecosystem that’s safe, reliable and sustainable. A relentlessly focused team is building an extensive charging infrastructure and ALIA, the world’s most technologically advanced electric vertical aircraft (EVA).

BETA’s platform and products are strikingly simple. Prioritization of safety and a pragmatic approach to certification drive elegant redundancy, appropriate diversity of implementation and simplicity of control. ALIA’s fixed-pitch propellers and centrally located batteries make it an inherently stable aircraft that is safe to fly and easy to maneuver.

As a Stress Composites Engineer for the Structures team, you will be responsible to generate and review composite structural analysis of aircraft primary and secondary structures, derive test plans to support the structure certification and work hand-in-hand with the Materials & Processes group. In this fast-paced culture, on any given day you will perform trade studies, derive requirements, complete hand calc and FEM analysis of composite structures, write test requirements and support test execution, analyze test results, or mentor junior team members.
