Hermeus is an aerospace and defense technology company founded to radically accelerate air travel by delivering hypersonic aircraft. The company aims to develop hypersonic aircraft quickly and cost-effectively by integrating hardware-rich, iterative development with modern computing and autonomy. This approach has been validated through design, build, and test of the company’s first combined turbojet-ramjet engine and is now being scaled through its first flight vehicle program, Quarterhorse. Hermeus is also developing Darkhorse — an uncrewed hypersonic aircraft designed to deliver unique asymmetric capabilities to the warfighter.
As a structures engineer on the engineering team, you will be responsible for the development, design, analysis, test, and lifecycle of a structural component or system on the Hermeus hypersonic aircraft.


  • Cradle to grave ownership of a structural component(s) or system(s)
  • Experience with CAD software (NX), FEA (Nastran and Femap) and other engineering analysis tools
  • Analysis of the hardware and systems – including hand sizing calculations
  • Lead design, integration, and test reviews
  • Assist in the development of processes and documentation to support engineering activities
  • Collaborate with other engineers and cross-functional teams to ensure the airframe design meets performance and safety requirements


  • Bachelor’s degree in mechanical or aerospace engineering
  • 1years to 5 years of experience in an engineering role using CAD and FEA consistently
  • Ability to obtain and maintain a US Security Clearance.
