I got to work on a diverse array of tasks in a environment that fosters ownership and learning. Working at Hermeus is a fantastic opportunity to grow as an individual and be part of a team that's trying to change the world.
Electrical Engineering Intern
University of Michigan
During my time at Hermeus, I had the unique opportunity to take part in one of the most revolutionary technological creations of our generation. Spearheaded by some of the smartest people I have ever met, Hermeus allowed me the ability to not only develop and strengthen engineering skills that protrudes anything taught in a classroom, but also recognize a depth of knowledge in both business and entrepreneurship practices.
Being an electrical engineering intern under the leadership of Skyler Shufold, I played an integral role in developing the initial avionics and communication systems design. I got an excellent sense of how all of the separate systems such as propulsion, structures, etc. all work in unison from the necessity to communicate and coordinate with every member in all the separate subsystems. I take pride in knowing that the work I performed at Hermeus will have lasting impacts in the future direction of the system's creation.
Additionally, at Hermeus, I was treated like a true equal team member and everyone was enthusiastic to aid me whenever I had questions. Teamwork, adaptation, and passion live at the heart of the company. I recommend anyone who has a passion to develop the next-generation aircraft and is fueled to work in a fast-paced, agile learning environment to put their sights on Hermeus! (Also, its not everyday you get the chance to sit right next to all of a company’s founders!)
