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.
De-Ice’s Mechanical Engineers are critical because they work on integrating De-Ice’s novel system onto aircraft.
Based in the Boston area, Mechanical Engineers support the De-Ice product lifecycle across several aerospace platforms.
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:
Select current and future projects in the mechanical engineering team include detailed designs for aircraft integration, thermal and mechanical analysis of electronics packaging, thermal design of critical electronic components, experiment design for aircraft-level testing, development of field repair techniques, recognizing and implementing manufacturability improvements, aircraft-level modeling and simulation, among others.
We’re a flat organization run by engineers and physicists where creative thinking is just as important as analytical prowess. We are looking for people who share our passion for solving hard problems and collaborative invention.
