A thriving economy in space is needed to make life on earth more vibrant, sustainable, and equitable. STOKE was founded to build the systems that enable that outcome through a seamlessly connected earth and space.


Reusable systems are the key to seamlessly connecting Earth and space. Structural analysis is at the heart of making parts, assemblies, and systems last for thousands of uses. As the Sr. Structural Analyst at an early stage start-up, you will own all aspects of structural assessments by working closely with the design and manufacturing team through all phases of the part and assembly lifecycle. You will perform, present, and document your results for static, dynamic, modal, thermo-mechanical, fracture, and fatigue analyses.
