Role Description: At Hermeus, you’ll have the opportunity to drive the design of the thermal management system architecture of high-speed (hypersonic) point-to-point vehicles. You’ll own thermal hardware design through manufacturing, aerothermal load inputs, material properties, and thermal systems & subsystem requirements.


  • Design and implement thermal management system and thermal protection systems
  • Own selection of hardware used for thermal management systems
  • Responsible for providing thermal environments to supporting technical teams
  • Hands-on manufacturing process development, including tools or fixtures required to manufacture and integrate the flight thermal hardware
  • Use FEM software to perform the thermal and structural analysis
  • Generate aerothermal loads database for structural design
  • Create and execute test plans for thermal system V&V

Required Skills & Experience:

  • Bachelor’s in Mechanical Engineering or Aerospace
  • 3+ years of experience prototyping, designing, and building hardware
  • Fundamental knowledge of additive and traditional manufacturing processes
  • Expertise in heat transfer

Preferred Skills & Competencies:

  • Master’s in Mechanical Engineering or Aerospace
  • Experience working in high temperature environments
  • OnShape (or other CAD programs)
  • Experience designing or working CMC’s
