Job Description

At Commonwealth Technology Innovation (CTI), a division of Huntington Ingalls Industries (HII), our mechanical engineers are challenged to develop unique customized solutions that seamlessly blend technology and tradecraft. We value integrity, imagination and hands-on creativity and recruit talent with diverse backgrounds who bring a broad spectrum of technical experience to our team. We expect that you will apply your skills and shape this position based on your strengths and interests. Even though our parent company, HII, is a large business, CTI preserves our small company feel and our engineers have the time to focus on their work while maintaining the big-picture perspective. Beyond our competitive salary and benefits structure, our engineers earn a sense of accomplishment by making meaningful contributions to our nation's security priorities. With some of the most comprehensive fabrication assets in Northern Virginia, including a full in-house machine shop, composite fabrication, finishing and electronics assembly capabilities, your ideas and designs will quickly become fieldable hardware. By joining the CTI team, your mechanical engineering skills can help solve our customer's most challenging problems and build upon the industry leading reputation we've developed over five decades.

Staff in this position apply mechanical engineering principles, theories, and concepts to develop imaginative and professional solutions for a wide range of problems. They receive direct technical tasking from project managers and report to an engineering supervisor who supports their professional development. They work within small engineering teams to design, assemble, and test components and systems to meet project requirements. Staff are given a high degree of latitude but are expected to present their work products to more experienced team members and manufacturing experts to obtain and incorporate feedback into their designs. They are responsible for fully documenting their work through contributions to the technical data package (TDP), procuring required COTS and build-to-print parts, and performing hands-on assembly and fabrication.

Job Requirements

  • Bachelor's Degree in Mechanical Engineering. 
  • Experience analyzing complex problems and procedures to find creative, logical and effective solutions.
  • Familiarity with hardware design and CAD, preferably Autodesk Inventor or SolidWorks
