✈   About us: We believe that aviation will be electric in the next decades, and that we need to make this transition happen as soon as possible. Beyond Aero is a startup of 20 passionate people currently building a two-seater hydrogen powered flying aircraft demonstrator. Meanwhile, we are designing a business aircraft able to reach 1000 miles around the hydrogen powertrain.

We are looking for the next 10 people who want to shape the future of aviation with us. One of them will manage the development of our aircraft hydraulic auxiliary systems.


✈   Subject: Thermo-hydraulic systems design and development for Beyond Aero

The candidate will be handling studies and development processes for thermo-hydraulic systems of the aircraft, such as thermal management, anti-icing, environmental control system, in close collaboration with thermal management, airframe and aerodynamics lead engineers. Some of the main tasks also include:

  • Perform calculations for thermal management needs, considering constraints from airframe, aerodynamics and mission requirements.
  • Conceptual layouts of thermal management system, air management.
  • Development of thermo-hydraulic models.
  • Ability to translate from concept to model; perform thermo-hydraulic simulations (CFD — single and two-phase — with commercial softwares and in-house developed models).
  • Mastering of thermodynamics and thermodynamic cycles, single and two-phase heat transfer and energy recovery.
  • Mastering of internal flow fluid dynamics either compressible and incompressible flows.
  • Draft requirements and contribute to execution of testing for systems.

The candidate will actively participate in decisions of Lead Thermal Management Engineer, he will be also asked to evaluate and select some of the off-the-shelf components for the different subsystems.
