Stuctures Engineering Lead
REGENT is building the first electric flying machine that will transport commercial passengers. With a vehicle that never flies higher than a few meters off the water, we unlock the ability to fly twice as far as an electric aircraft, and certification by maritime authorities which will let us fly first passengers within 5 years.
We are actively hiring passionate team members who can help us get our vehicle, the seaglider, to market as quickly and safely as possible. We are backed by the world’s best investors: the same investors who are behind SpaceX, Palantir, Boom Supersonic, and more. We have nearly half a billion dollars in provisional orders from some of the industry’s largest operators, and are ready to hit the ground running.
Working at REGENT, you’ll be in a fast-paced environment with exciting new challenges daily and abundant opportunities for growth. Your coworkers are passionate about building zero-emission, high-speed seagliders that will revolutionize coastal transportation. Our small team works collaboratively and across disciplines to safely marry the latest technologies from aerospace and nautical engineering. REGENT offers competitive benefits including healthcare, dental, and vision plans as well as an employee equity incentive plan.
As the Structures Engineering Lead you will help lead the development of the composite vehicle structures of REGENT’s seaglider vehicles. This role requires an intimate knowledge of composites design and analysis as well as the materials systems available to fabricate cutting edge aero and marine structures. Someone in this role should be able to have the skill sets to encompass the entire development cycle of a composite assembly including the design of monolithic and cored components as part of a bonded assembly, able to perform both hand calculations and FEA and understand when appropriate to implement either, design tooling, create CAD models and drawing, layup parts, trim, drill, and bond components and complete structural validation load tests culminating in supporting integration efforts at the vehicle level. With those skills candidates will also be responsible for helping to build a team of structures design engineers, stress analysts, test engineers and fabricators while also developing process and procedure regarding engineering approaches along side other lead engineers at REGENT.
