Hermeus is a startup developing hypersonic aircraft to radically accelerate air travel. At Mach 5, more than twice the speed of the supersonic Concorde, passengers will be able to cross the Atlantic in 90 minutes. On the path to hypersonic passenger aircraft, Hermeus is partnering with government agencies including the US Air Force and NASA to develop a series of autonomous aircraft that derisk the technology and solve urgent national security challenges. These products provide the data and confidence necessary to certify, produce, operate, and maintain safe and comfortable commercial aircraft. Hypersonic aircraft have the potential to create trillions of dollars of new global economic growth per year, unlocking significant resources that can be utilized to solve the world’s greatest problems.
The Hermeus Flight Test team owns the cradle to grave testing of the fastest unpiloted reusable air breathing aircraft on the planet. Our team plays a critical role in ensuring that the Quarterhorse aircraft and all sub-systems meet safety, performance, and certification requirements.
As an Airworthiness Systems Engineer, you'll be responsible for managing requirements, verification plans, and certification plans for aircraft systems and sub-systems. You'll have the opportunity to work closely with the design engineering teams to ensure that evolving designs are adequately captured, controlled, and reviewed by the program. This role requires a high level of accountability for the capture and tracking of the technical baseline for the as designed, as built, and as tested configurations. Tasking may also include development of requirements, requirements management methods, development of verification plans and linking to processes and procedures, management of reviews and inputs from cross-functional teams, and managing/reporting progress against plans.
