NFT Inc is based in Mountain View, CA and developer of the ASKA™ – the first viable Electric Vertical Take-off and Landing vehicle (eVTOL) in the world with drive and fly capabilities, providing door to door transport for daily commuters and designed with a reasonable cost factor. The ASKA has both vertical and short takeoff and landing capabilities (VTOL and STOL).


We’re looking for a Structural Engineer who loves challenges and wants to be an active member of our engineering team in Mountain View. You will also collaborate with fellow engineers at our R&D center in Israel.


ASKA is on an exciting journey skyward – NFT has signed a five-year Space Act Agreement  with NASA to advance our participation in NASA’s Urban Air Mobility Grand Challenge, jointly organized with the FAA. Join us and you'll be an active influencer in designing Urban Air Mobility solutions that address the transportation challenges in today’s world!


This position will support the optimization of the structural and mechanical design of the ASKA™ vehicle. As a member of our R&D team, you will be working closely on the structural and aeromechanical design of the ASKA™ vehicle, ensuring optimum performance in an agile environment.


Day-to-day activities involve creating CAD geometries, optimizing the structural design and validating it through FEA simulations. To validate the computational results, you will progress through bench, wind tunnel and flight testing, resulting in a fully operational vehicle.


Candidates must meet these requirements:


Minimum 5 years work experience as a Structural Engineer

BS in Mechanical Engineering

Or MS with focus on structural design or a comparable industry career of 3+ years

No under-graduates or graduate students please
