We are trying to set a team of 4 that will be the first to commercialise and make Airborne Wind Energy a reality. We are looking for an engineer to be responsible for the airframe of our next generations of kites.

  • Our next development goal is to reach 24 hours of continuous flight.
  • We have secured funding for the next 18 months. 

Qualifications needed will be 

  • 3D CAD design
  • Rapid prototyping
  • Composite design
  • Manufacturing of composites
  • Aerodynamics
  • Aircraft dynamics
  • CFD

The work will involve a great deal of practical work as we believe it's much more efficient to build and test the thing ourselves than having another layer of employees.  The organisational structure (for the 4 of us) will very flat and we will strive for solids arguments to be the basis of any decision.
