Job Brief

Aurora Flight Sciences, a Boeing subsidiary, is seeking a Energy Storage Group Lead to contribute to the design and development of next generation electric and hybrid-electric power systems for manned and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).

The Electrical Power Systems Division was created to analyze, design, integrate and test high voltage electrical power systems. High voltage systems are those in excess of 28VDC. These systems are typically used for air vehicle propulsive power.

Aurora Flight Sciences, a Boeing subsidiary, is seeking a Energy Storage Group Lead to contribute to the design and development of next generation electric and hybrid-electric power systems for manned and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) including efficient high performance vertical take-off and landing aircraft, high-altitude and long-endurance (HALE) UAVs, and megawatt-scale electrified propulsion aircraft to name a few.

The Group Lead position will be the engineering discipline functional lead for a team of 10-15 or more engineers with background in mechanical, electrical, and chemical engineers involved in the design and development of advanced battery systems with lead responsibility for:

· developing and disseminating standard practices of design, development, and validation within the discipline.

· collaborating with the Electric Power Systems Division Manager on the strategic roadmap for hiring, facilities, and technology.

· collaborating with the Project Managers and Integrated Product Team (IPT) leads to successfully support funded aircraft and subsystem projects.

· supporting and managing the group staff including all engineering overhead functions (e.g. performance reviews).

· providing expert advice and review as a non-advocate reviewer.
