The Exploration Company

Turin, Italy

We are seeking a talented Valves Cryogenic Design Engineer to join our propulsion systems division. As a key member of our engineering team, you will be responsible for designing, analyzing, and optimizing valve systems for cryogenic rocket engines.

Key Responsibilities

As the Valves Cryogenic Design Engineer, your responsibilities will include:

  • Lead the design and develop cryogenic valves for rocket engine applications.
  • Conduct engineering analyses, including fluid dynamics, structural integrity, and thermal performance assessments.
  • Collaborate with multidisciplinary teams to integrate valves systems into overall engine architectures.
  • Evaluate and select the appropriate valve actuation mode (pneumatic vs. electric) based on performance requirements, operational parameters, and environmental constraints.
  • Design valve actuation systems, including pneumatic or electric actuators, solenoids, and control circuits, to achieve optimal valve performance.
  • Optimize performance, efficiency, and reliability of valves designs through iterative modeling and testing.
  • Ensure compliance with technical specifications, industry standards, and regulatory requirements.
  • Support manufacturing, assembly, and testing activities, providing technical expertise and troubleshooting as needed.
  • Manage subcontractors involved in specific design and manufacturing aspects, ensuring quality, schedule adherence, and cost control.
  • Participate in design reviews, project planning, and documentation of design iterations and improvements.

What we would love to see from you

In the role of Valves Cryogenic Design Engineer ideally, you will have the following:

  • Master’s degree or higher in Aerospace Engineering, or related field; advanced degree (Masters or PhD) preferred.
  • Proven experience (5+ years) in valves design in cryogenic environments.
  • Hands-on experience developing hardware from concept to working prototypes.
  • Strong understanding of fluid dynamics, thermodynamics, materials science, and manufacturing processes relevant to cryogenic applications.
  • Experience with pneumatic and/or electric actuation systems, including knowledge of pneumatic control systems and electric motor control.
  • Experience with materials selection for cryogenic applications and knowledge of relevant manufacturing processes.
  • Experience performing valves mechanical analyses (structural and modal).
  • Knowledge of valves assembly procedures, including interference fits, clearance checks, structural proofing, and leak checks.
  • Experience using CAD to design parts/assemblies is an asset.
  • Fluent in English. Italian is an asset.

Skills and Behaviours:
