The journey to space starts with the engines. 

Ursa Major was founded to bring a new model to space access: one in which every link in an enormous value chain isn’t limited by those around it. We design rocket engines and propulsion solutions.  
Our products and technologies require an extraordinary team. A team that will mold tomorrow’s technologies while deploying today’s best. We are an intrinsically motivated team that has a passion for solving problems and empowering each other every day to develop our skills, knowing that there is always room for growth.

Ursa Major is currently seeking talented individuals for our Summer 2023 Engineering Internship. As an intern on a small, fast-moving team, you will be challenged with supporting the dynamic environment of propulsion design, development, manufacturing, test, and production. You will receive hands-on experience while helping solve difficult engineering problems. We thrive on giving ownership and authority, so you can expect to make decisions and make a difference!

This internship could be for any of our Engineering teams: Analysis, Design, Propulsion Development, Avionics, Turbo-machinery, Test, etc.

This position will be full-time.

THE DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS IS 9/9/22. Final decisions will be made at the beginning of October.

Requirements

  • Background in mechanical, electrical, aerospace, or manufacturing engineering
  • Must be an academic Junior and above by May 2023 (experience with Fluids, Mechanics of Materials, and other advanced classes)
  • Excellent with first principle analysis with mechanical and/or fluid-based scenarios
  • Hands-on build and/or test experience (design > build > test lifecycle of a project)
  • Demonstrated teamwork and ability to communicate effectively in a group setting
  • Drive to continuously improve technical and team skills
  • Experience with CAD software is preferred

Colorado law requires us to tell you the base compensation of this role, which is $27/hour. What we can’t quantify for you are the exciting challenges, supportive team, and amazing culture we enjoy.
