Job Description

The Autonomous Maritime & Mission Systems (AM&MS) business area is seeking an entry-level to mid-career ME/Structural Analyst to be responsible for the structural analysis of complex structures and pressure vessels for subsea applications. The candidate will perform detailed structural analysis of heavily-loaded structures and perform iterative optimization and determination of the mechanicalarchitecture of subsea pressure vessels and associated structures to minimize system weight. Analysis techniques will include linear and non-linear finite element methods including stress and stability (buckling). Pressure Vessels are critical to the success of ATP in that the pressure vessel design is a significant contributor to overall system performance and cost. Candidate will be required to follow established analysis standards and acceptance criteria and specific guidelines for program implementation to ensure system performance requirements are met. Candidate will under the direction of senior MEs to resolve structural issues and provide innovative solutions to structural challenges in the subsea environment. The candidate will interface directly with customer experts to demonstrate technical credibility and enhance customer relations. Occasional travel to customer, teammate and other Boeing sites may be required.

The candidate must be familiar with DoD/industry standards for acceptance criteria and analysis methods. An understanding of typical Subsea materials (aluminum, titanium, etc.) and their limitations is desired. Must have analysis experience using CATIA, SDRC Ideas, Nastran, and/or Patran. Prefer experience in linear, nonlinear stress and stability analysis including use of contact elements to determine structural interactions. Must possess demonstrated/proven ability to work well with customer(s) and focus on customer satisfaction. Experience with instrumentation and hydrostatic testing of pressure vessels to validate analysis results and demonstrate system safety is a plus. Prefer domain knowledge in the design and development of underwater structural systems.

Boeing is the world's largest aerospace company and leading manufacturer of commercial airplanes and defense, space and security systems. We are engineers and technicians.
