Lockheed Martin Mechanical Engineer Staff / Energy Storage / Cambridge, MA in Cambridge, Massachusetts
Lockheed Martin Advanced Energy Storage is commercializing a new class of grid-scale energy storage systems. This is a full-time, design-oriented engineering position to lead the development of new technology from concept through commercialization. This position is located in Cambridge, MA.
The mechanical engineer (ME) will engage with other senior technical staff to perform architecture-level trade studies and analyses, with a focus on performance/cost optimization. The ME will lead the design, analysis, testing, and refinement of mechanical systems and sub-systems, and will provide technical guidance to less experienced engineers, drafters, and technicians. The ability to communicate effectively with scientists and engineers, as well as non-technical stake-holders is expected.
The ideal ME will bring significant experience with fluid management systems to the role, including piping design, pump and sensor selection, P&ID development, and component sizing. Solid modeling experience is required (SolidWorks preferred). While this role is oriented toward design, the successful candidate will have the inclination and aptitude to employ quantitative analysis as required.
The ideal candidate will also have familiarity with electrochemical systems, such as fuel cells, batteries (esp. flow), or electrolyzers. Experience leading teams in the design and scale up of electrochemical cell-stacks is highly valued. However, the demonstrated ability to design industrial equipment and successfully transition those designs to production will be prioritized over specific industry experience.
Relocation: Relocation/Housing Stipend is possible for this exciting position.
The Locale: Cambridge, Massachusetts and the surrounding communities offer an exciting and vibrant place to work and to live. Cambridge is just across the river from Boston and is located in eastern Massachusetts. Cambridge is home to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and Harvard University. Cambridge, is also the birthplace of many startup companies due to the high amount of brain power produced by these schools and also from nearby Tufts University, Boston College, Boston University, Brandies University, Wellesley College, Babson College, and Northeastern University. Nearby communities would include scenic coastal towns such as Swampscott, Salem, and Marblehead. To the west are communities such as Belmont, Brookline, Watertown, Waltham, Lincoln, and Concord. Our Lockheed Martin AES site is located somewhat close to the Alewife Station which is a major MBTA transit hub with access to the Red Line with service to Boston and bus lines with service to surrounding neighborhoods and adjacent communities. If you like living in right in the city, or out in the suburbs, or near the ocean, our location will offer ample choices for you. Where can you get to from Cambridge and Boston? Cape Cod is less than 90 minutes to the southeast. The White Mountains of New Hampshire are 2.5 hours to the north. Providence, RI is about 2 hours to the southwest. Montreal is about 5 hours to the northwest.
