Join the Collier Research Team

Wanted: Top talent to join our team!

developerWe are a commercial software company with roots in aerospace engineering going back to NASA in 1995. As a small, quick-moving company, we are seeking candidates with unique talents and who are exceptionally passionate about what they do.

the talent

Our corporate mission is to help customers bridge certification analysis with design optimization. To achieve this, we provide an automation process for analysis reporting and traceability, finding lighter designs that are also more cost effective to produce, all in shorter schedules. HyperSizer provides the expertise and functionality to produce the lightest-weight, fully-optimized, and realistic structural carbon fiber composite or metal designs.

Here at Collier Research we value our particular opportunity to work with engineers across many industries. We are involved in applications of wind energy, automotive, shipbuilding, sporting goods, and of course aerospace and space launch (see our Customer List). As a member of our team, we hope that you will be excited to be exposed and contribute to many leading edge and fascinating projects! “Do something cool!” is one of our mottos.
