Design Engineer / Project Engineer
W&A has immediate openings for two full-time engineers to assist with existing projects and to carry major responsibility for new projects.

Our biggest new project is development of Autonomous Guidance Units (AGU) under contract to the US Army. At least two sizes of the AGU will be developed to steer hi-glide parachutes supporting cargo weighing as much as 30,000 lbs to precise destinations. W&A does not design the parachutes and has only limited influence over the development of the avionics and software, which are being provided by other contractors.

Other current contracts include:

  • Develop special purpose data acquisition packages and sensors
  • Personnel parachute hardware
  • Next generation of G-Tester (described elsewhere on this website)

Applicants must have many of the following credentials or skills:

  • BS or MS degree in either Mechanical or Aerospace Engineering is required
  • Five years or more of experience
  • Proven track record in mechanical or electro-mechanical product design and development
  • Ability to write clear, concise proposals, reports and instruction manuals.
  • Proficiency in 3D CAD, preferably SolidWorks
  • Experience, skill, and/or desire to perform customer liaison and some program management administrative duties
  • Work cooperatively with other members of our team and with the clients
  • Willingness and ability to perform “hands-on” fabrication and testing of prototypes
  • Proficiency with software applications such as word processing, spreadsheets, presentation graphics
  • Experience in combining electronic and mechanical subsystems to achieve motion control
  • Talent for writing and delivering technical papers at conferences would be a bonus.
