JOB OFFERS

CycloTech GmbH, located in Linz (Austria), is a high-tech company with a start-up atmosphere, that is specialised in developing aircraft propulsion systems based on cyclogyro-rotors.

These propulsion systems are the basis for a completely new type of aircraft, that, in comparison to conventional aircraft (e.g. airplanes, helicopters), allows a stable hover flight, i.e. vertical take-off and landing (VTOL), while at the same time good performance in forward flight is achieved.

Therefore, cyclogyro-rotors are a possible solution for the continuously increasing demands on short range cargo- and passenger aircraft or for inner city traffic. For the next development phase, we would like to strengthen our team with an:

Calculation Engineer (m/f/d)

As part of the construction department you will act within the complete development and optimization process for cyclogyro-rotors and related components and systems.

As a part of the construction team, your responsibilities are:

  • Independent and autonomous execution of calculations at component and system level
  • Component analysis, evaluation and interpretation of calculation results as well as comparison with the test results
  • Responsibility for the entire simulation chain: data management, pre-processing, solving and post-processing
  • Interpretation and presentation of the results as well as proposed solutions in front of customers and in the project team
  • Active participation from the concept phase to the development of assemblies and systems
  • Derivation of optimization measures to achieve goals
  • Support of the Head of R&D

Requirements

Essential:

  • Completed academic education (MSc) with a specialisation in aircraft technology, mechatronics or mechanical engineering
  • Several years of relevant professional experience in calculation and simulation
  • Knowledge of typical calculation tools and software programs such as Abaqus, Ansys, Patran, Matlab, Python, Hypermesh or Nastran
  • Excellent English language skills
  • Reliability and precise and conscientious way of working

Desirable:

  • Experience in the aviation sector and in handling CAD tools
  • Experience with lightweight materials and composite structures
  • Knowledge of German

We offer

  • Possibility to contribute to the implementation of a futuristic technology in an international team
  • Flexible working hours and work organisation
  • Pleasant working atmosphere

Annual salary for the position is € 50,000 gross per year (full time). Salary can be flexible according to qualifications and experience.
