Mechanical Design Engineer - Battery Pack Structures

Montreal, QC


The Mechanical Design Engineer is responsible for owning the development high voltage battery pack structures from conception through assembly. As a Mechanical Design Engineer at Beta Technologies you will work in a small team environment to rapidly develop new technologies in the evolving world of eVTOL aircraft design. As an open minded and outside-the-box thinker you will perpetually strive to supplement your past industry experience with new knowledge gained every day through research and experimentation as you design next generation battery pack structures. You will utilize any necessary CAD modelling and analysis tools to ensure your designs are meeting the highest safety standards and exceeding all relevant regulatory requirements. You will be challenged every day and probably have a lot of fun.
