Scott Schipmann

Mechanical Engineer

"Joining the team at Avalanche was a no-brainer for me. I loved the idea of working on a small team on an engaging project where I wouldn’t feel like another desk monkey staring at a screen all day."

Scott joins the Avalanche team as a mechanical engineer with a focus on conducting and evaluating test scenarios and developing the ion source, AVA.

Scott graduated from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute with a degree in Aeronautical Engineering and a concentration in space flight mechanics.

During his Junior and Senior year, Scott interned on the propulsion team at Momentus, where he worked on the MET thruster system.

Outside of work, you’re most likely to spot Scott enjoying the outdoors, monkeying up rock faces in the Cascades.
