Boeing Commercial Airplanes is seeking experienced Liaison Engineers (a.k.a. Product Review Engineers) for the Puget Sound (Greater Seattle area) production areas. We are looking for proactive individuals who can make quick engineering decisions and who want go beyond their desk and into the factory for hands on engineering.
This position requires excellent communication and collaboration skills, partnering closely with production personnel. This position allows you to work with all areas and systems of all BCA airplanes in production. The first step in this role is to earn a MRB (Material Review Board) certification which is a highly sought-after skill in the global industries today. With MRB certification, an Engineer has single signature authority to revise FAA approved type design of any BCA (Boeing Commercial Airplanes) aircraft.
On a typical day as a certified MRB Engineer, you will create design solutions to address any and all nonconforming parts and systems on an airplane, which includes correcting any build or design errors found during production. Your repair solutions will take into consideration: metal and composite structures, interiors, payloads, electrical systems, functional testing, finishes, aerodynamics, electromagnetic environment, damage tolerance, fatigue, static strength, propulsion, safety, and so much more.
Responsibilities to include (but not limited to) the following:
Analyzes, conducts root cause analysis and develops dispositions for design non-conformances.
Applies engineering principles to research technical, operational and quality issues that cannot be resolved by customer and designs interim and final engineering solutions.
Identifies documents, analyzes reported problems and communicates deviations that could impact design intent and safety; recommends and manages resolution.
Develops and implements product/process improvements.
Supports Integrated Product Teams (IPT) and participates in design reviews. Represents the engineering community in the build through post production environment.
Participates in on-site disabled product repair teams and accident investigation or support team.
Analyzes damage repair or structural modification to determine appropriate jacking and shoring, prevent collateral damage and assure a safe work environment.
Designs interim structural repairs and conducts static strength analysis. Develops non-destructive test procedures, tools and standards. Conducts simple static strength analysis.
The candidate may work 1st, 2nd, or 3rd shift, as well as weekend or daily overtime. This requirement varies from site to site and is typically covered on a rotation basis. This position involves exposure to factory environment which includes stairs, trip hazards, high noise areas, chemical hazards (breathing and handling), and entering airplanes during their many stages of build.
Boeing is the world's largest aerospace company and leading manufacturer of commercial airplanes and defense, space and security systems. We are engineers and technicians. Skilled scientists and thinkers. Bold innovators and dreamers. Join us, and you can build something better for yourself, for our customers and for the world.
