The Engineering Company is building a new, radically faster and easier way to develop complex mechanical products. From rocket engines to wind turbines, designing industrial hardware is expensive, slow and difficult.

For the industry that should be pushing humanity forward, our tools and the way we develop is outdated. Designing complex hardware such as aeroplanes can take decades, with thousands of inventors being reduced to CAD and simulation executors, manually designing and implementing every element. This has led to fewer designs, fewer real inventors, less creativity, and has caused the entire industry to stagnate. The next 100 years are about pushing the boundaries of what is possible and creating a new frontier for humanity, being able to design drones in hours, planes in weeks and whole cities in months. This will enable the new industrial revolution, with advanced robotics and electric cars… To be able to do this, we need to rethink how we do engineering and learn from advances in other disciplines such as software, on how to build massively complex scalable systems.

We’re building the software abstraction layer for mechanical engineering. Our technology enables engineers to design cutting-edge hardware, in hours, at a fundamentally more powerful complexity level. We believe it will one day power all industrial design and development globally.


You will be working in the Core Engineering team designing a wide range of engineering products in a very collaborative environment. You will have the power to push the boundaries of engineering, to learn and develop your software and engineering design skills and to share the experience with like-minded people. We’re motivated by the fulfilment of solving hard problems to achieve something extraordinary.

We are a team of software and mechanical engineers that have worked on the cutting edge of both industries at places including Google, McLaren Automotive, Improbable, Imperial College, Barcelona Supercomputing Center and BP.

As an early hire, you’ll not only be in a unique position to grow into a technical leadership position but also be directly responsible for developing the technology that will set the foundations of the next era of engineering companies and will change the daily life of thousands of engineers.


We’re looking for a Mechanical/Aerospace Engineer with good programming skills. You will be working as part of our in-house product development and you will push the limits of our technology. You will design different engineering products such as drones, robots, cars… from scratch, based on engineering principles. This is a critical role because it lays the foundation of how mechanical engineers will design these engineering products in the future. As an early hire, you will have a large amount of ownership and be deeply involved in productising and deploying our technology into high-profile companies.


---Technical skills
*Strong Relevant Master's or Bachelor's Degree (Mechanical, Industrial, Aerospace, Design...)
*Great analytical skills
*Worked with and can critique multiple CAD and design paradigms.
*Are familiar with MATLAB, Python, Java or similar coding tool/language.
*Ability to build complex designs from engineering first-principles

--- Soft skills:
*You care about building technology that delivers a real-world impact to many people. You want to build technologies that matter. Your job is more than just a way of getting paid.
*Strong problem-solving based on experimentation, patience and running mini-tests
*Can work independently in a fast-paced environment, with strong attention to detail and is delivery oriented.
*You go out of your way to help others achieve and improve as a team and you are able to foster an environment of learning across multiple teams.
