[P96] Turbomachinery Engineer
Parque Industrial de Elche (Poligono Industrial),
As part of a small, passionate, and accomplished team, you will be responsible for all aspects of turbopump design, development, test, and qualification and production
Design, build, and test turbopump hardware for MIURA 5 first/second stage liquid propellant rocket engines (TEPREL-C and TEPREL-C Vac).
Perform the aero/hydro sizing, flow path design, analysis work for the turbopumps and other turbomachinery for MIURA 5 rocket engines.
Perform detailed mechanical analysis on all the turbopump components and associated equipment, review design and ensure that meets the required standards for life and reliability targets.
Be part of turbopumps testing activities, review test data, provide limitations and safe operational conditions of turbopump hardware.
Participate in test readiness reviews, in an incremental approach: engine data (at TCA level) review, complete engine post-test review, integrated stage test data review, flight readiness review, and post flight data review.
Participate at post-processing data level to assess turbopump health, rotordynamic performance and cavitation phenomena
Develop data analysis tools necessary for turbopump health assessment and performance trend studies.
Elaborate, update and review engineering documentation including engineering models and drawings.
Evaluate hardware nonconforming conditions providing written dispositions for development, production, test, and postproduction discrepancies considering design requirements, safety, quality, cost and schedule.
Write, review, and update work instructions for assembly, handling, inspection of turbopump assemblies (both intermediate test articles and flight hardware).
Provide feedback to Identify, improve performance, increase reliability or manufacturability, and assembly at design level and operational level.
Bachelor’s degree in Engineering.
