According to John Owen, co-founder of JetBlue and investor at De-Ice, “the best way to save money for an airline is to run a reliable, on-time schedule, and current-state de-icing makes this impossible.”
De-Ice is an MIT spin-out that’s developed an electric de-icing solution that will solve this problem. This eliminates the need for the aircraft to hold on the ground for 30-45 minutes or more while workers in bucket trucks spray heated, toxic fluids on the aircraft.
If you’re passionate about aviation, engineering, and solving difficult problems, join our team to take a big step towards making flying sustainable for everyone.
The Graduate Aerospace Engineer Intern will work on integrating De-Ice’s novel system onto aircraft for the Summer of 2024. They will work with an interdisciplinary team of talented engineers and world-class mentors.
The ideal candidate will have a strong engineering background, and experience designing, prototyping, and testing novel and complex systems. Specific duties include, but are not limited to:
Current projects in the mechanical and aerospace engineering team include detailed designs for aircraft integration, thermal and mechanical analysis of electronics packaging, experiment design for aircraft-level testing, development of field repair techniques, recognizing and implementing manufacturability improvements, aircraft-level modeling and simulation, among others.
De-Ice is a flat organization run by engineers and physicists where creative thinking is just as important as analytical prowess. We believe in empowering engineers and value efficient problem solving and servant-leadership. We are looking for people who share our passion for solving hard problems and collaborative invention.
