  • Overview

    As part of a small, passionate and accomplished team of experts, you will work closely with our rocket and spacecraft program stakeholders and other technical leads to drive requirements definition, modeling, analysis, design, test and production release of the complex board-level analog and digital circuitry on our avionics circuit card assemblies and embedded systems; across the entire product life-cycle (concept to launch), in a direct hands-on manner.  This position will directly impact the history of space exploration and will require your dedicated commitment and detailed attention towards safe and repeatable spaceflight.


    • Lead complex circuit (analog/digital) and board (PCB/PCA) development across entire avionics hardware product life cycle: requirements and concept definition, design (schematic capture & layout), verification (inspection, analysis and [power-on / functional / debug] test), review, qualification and production release.
    • Develop analog, digital, and mixed-signal circuits and boards that interact with advanced avionics subsystems (sensors and electromechanical / electrohydraulic actuators).
    • Support avionics hardware architecture trade studies; including analyses, performance characterization, specification, and device selection.
    • Support avionics hardware risk analyses and root-cause analysis of test discrepancies; including Worst Case Circuit Analysis (WCCA), Failure Mode Effects and Criticality Analyses (FMECA), Design For Test/Manufacture/Cost (DFx), reliability (MTBF).


    • Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering (or related discipline) with a focus on circuits, boards and electronic embedded systems.
    • Proficient with analog, digital and mixed-signal circuit analysis, simulation, design, test, and troubleshooting; including board layout.

    •  Analog filters and signal conditioners using operational amplifiers, transistors and other discrete active components
    •  Power circuits, DC-DC converters and battery circuits
    •  Digital filters, discrete logic and signal conditioning 
    •  Circuits that interact with miscellaneous sensors (thermal, pressure, displacement, velocity, acceleration, stress/strain, etc)
    •  Circuits that interact with miscellaneous transducers (servo valves, solenoid valves, motors, etc)

    • Proficient with Cadence OrCAD / Allegro, Altium (or similar tools) to design complex commercial or aerospace boards; and experience working with external board manufacturing and assembly vendors.
    • Proficient with scripting; programming and analysis/modeling packages: Python, Linux/Windows shell scripting; C/C++; MATLAB/Simulink, SPICE (or other similar modeling/analysis tools).
    • Highly organized team player with excellent written and verbal communication skills.
    • Must be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident (current Green Card holder).


    • Graduate degree in relevant engineering or other related discipline.
    • Demonstrated proficiency designing high reliability DFx (Design For Manufacture, Test and Cost), safety-critical, Class 2/3 board assemblies; including familiarity with IPC-A-600/610 and NASA-STD-8739.n (or similar) standards.
    • Experience developing complex commercial or aerospace Circuit Card Assemblies (CCAs) and advanced electronic assemblies; including product qualification.
    • Exposure to designing safety or mission critical aerospace flight hardware compliant with DO-160 and DO-254.
    • Exposure to signal, power and grounding integrity analyses using 3-D solvers such as HFSS (or other similar modeling/analysis tools).
    • Exposure to development of high-reliability, radiation tolerant/hardened space hardware.
