Engineering Careers at B/E
Here’s your opportunity to take your engineering experience to a new level.
Each day you’ll discover important challenges and provide solutions that define our industry, as well as
keep travelers safe. Here are just a few of our engineering careers:
• Mechanical Design Engineer
• Mechanical Designer
• Stress Engineer
• Structures Engineer
• Manufacturing Engineer
• Industrial Engineer
• Aerospace Certification Engineer
• Quality Engineer
• Reliability Engineer
• Test Engineer
• Electrical Engineer
• Engineering Manager
Mechanical Design Engineer
With technology at its finest, our Mechanical Design Engineers utilize 3-D solid modeling
software (Unigraphics) to develop design concepts as well as produce engineering drawings. With that, they select
the materials and designing parts for aircraft modifications and interior products.
It’s where skill meets imagination. As a Mechanical Designer, you’ll design and
produce mechanical components and assemblies using best practices with an emphasis on manufacturability,
reliability and maintainability.
In analyzing aircraft structural designs for components and assemblies, Stress Engineers play
an essential role at B/E. They also compile substantiation reports for the Federal Aviation Administration for
Our reputation is in the hands of our Structures Engineers as they use their experiences
structural and primary aircraft composition designs, as well as compile substantiation reports for the Federal
Aviation Administration for compliance purposes.
With a real passion for the product, our Manufacturing Engineers are continually improving
equipment or product designs, performing materials testing, involved in the preparation of specifications, process
or research investigations in a lean manufacturing environment.
Like a well-oiled machine, our Industrial Engineers plan and oversee the utilization of
and staff to ensure efficient and safe operations in a lean manufacturing environment.
Aerospace Certification Engineer
As an important part in the production of our products, our Aerospace Certification Engineers
responsible for the research, planning and testing of the FAA certification approval process.
B/E’s reputation is the responsibility of all our people, but our Quality Engineers take
real pride in planning and directing activities concerned with the development, application and maintenance of
for manufacturing processes, materials and products.
Each day our Reliability Engineers display proficiency in aircraft weight and balance
calculations, as they perform weight trade-off studies and synthesize product weight from layout drawings.
Test Engineers at B/E Aerospace analyze and forecast complex system reliabilities, as well as
design appropriate testing and validation protocols.
When it comes to specific needs for electronic components, our Electrical Engineers design,
modify and evaluate complex electronic circuitry of electronic devices or systems.
As an engineering leader, our Engineering Managers are responsible for the management of
resources and processes of an engineering platform within a business unit. It includes the development of projects,
structures, and operations as part of a product program. Additionally, our Engineering Managers oversee
the direction, coordination, and evaluation of the entire product or business unit.
Efficient and accurate, our Technicians perform the work direction and coordination of
activities at the sub-assembly and final assembly operations areas.

Position: VP Engineering
First item(s) I’d add to my own private jet: I’d install an
electric UTC with massage capabilities.
The B/E work force here in Miami is a very diverse one. Our employees represent many
different countries, and bring with them a vast array of experiences. Culturally, people who like fast-paced
environments, can take responsibility for themselves and their career path, and can communicate well will definitely

First item(s) I’d add to my own private jet: In my plane, I’d
have virtual reality goggles available so I could see what the pilot sees – the terrain below the plane,
the sky above, and all around.
Ever since my interview at B/E, I’ve established a strong rapport with the people I
met here. I was
interested in the geographic locations and B/E’s financial performance; I just knew they would grow and
prosper. And with their global presence, there is opportunity to travel and I find that exciting. The
workplace culture is easy going, and there’s a strong focus on engineering. There is a genuine willingness
to share information, discuss ideas, etc. I would challenge someone to be bored here. You can take
ownership of your career. And, after I started working here, I talked my husband into coming here.
Name: Gannon G.
Position: Mechanical Design Engineer
First item(s) I’d add to my own private jet: In my jet, I’d have
a custom entertainment center
installed in the cabin.
I wanted to work for a company that would help expand my experience in the mechanical/aerospace
field – for a company that would allow me to work on cutting-edge products in a fast-paced environment.
here, I get that and more. I’m challenged because there is little room for error. It is imperative to be
able to multi-task for several programs, which keeps us busy from the beginning to the end of the day. In my
short time here, I have realized that I want to pursue a master’s degree in business administration,
allowing my career to grow and hopefully benefiting the company as well.
Name: Troy B.
Position: Design Engineer
First item(s) I’d add to my own private jet: I’d install first
class seats that lie flat.
My job is to come up with innovative ideas to help take weight out of products, which helps
fuel prices. While at B/E, I’ve learned a lot more about the manufacturing processes,
which helps me grow.
I really like that the people here are always willing to help out when others are in a crunch, and they are
willing to share their knowledge. They also recognize the efforts of people’s hard work. Recently,
I received kudos for coming up with a handicap latch, and was recognized throughout the company for it.
Name: Brian A.
Position: Design Engineer
First item(s) I’d add to my own private jet: I’d add several things
like a multi-game table for games
like chess and checkers, a media center, and I’d be sure to have comfortable seats.
I am impressed by B/E’s unique work environment. It is structured to allow for more
interaction with the products as well as with other departments. This results in a wide variety of opportunities
for employees, including the ability to be promoted from within. There are also constant opportunities handed to
you with the trust that you can "get it done". It is very empowering. The culture here is also unique
in that it
contains varied personalities and yet, everyone has a great deal of respect for each other. Plus, everyone
is pleasant to be around. It’s a great environment to grow and flourish.
Name: Dan B.
Position: Director, Process and Compliance (Engineering)
First item(s) I’d add to my own private jet: I’d love a hot tub.
When I joined B/E, it was just this small engineering company. I was told upfront about growth
and plans, and what my job was going to be. And over the past 11 years, it has had dynamic growth. Now we’re
recognized as a leader in interior aircraft design. I like that everyone has a voice here and is encouraged to
use it. Just last week, I was asked to be a panelist at an Aviation Week industry event in Ft. Lauderdale.
It’s fun to be a part of this type of recognition. If I had to tell a friend what a career at B/E is
like now, I’d
say it’s a multi-billion dollar company with the personality of a small shop.
