  • Overview

    As part of a small, passionate, and accomplished team of experts, you will develop and demonstrate environmental control and life support system (ECLSS) technologies and subsystems for various spaceflight systems. You are comfortable quickly adjusting to evolving requirements or external constraints, and re-prioritizing your efforts while providing creativity and innovation. This position will directly impact the history of space exploration and will require your dedicated commitment and detailed attention towards safe and repeatable human spaceflight.


    • Participate in the development of ECLSS including system architecture definition, process & instrumentation diagram (P&ID), thermo-fluid system modeling, performance analysis, component sizing, and conceptual design
    • Perform requirements analysis and traceability, and functional analysis
    • Perform thermo-fluid analysis of fluid systems, develop system schematics and track system performance
    • Identify and trade technology solutions
    • Provide early definition of interfaces and controlling documents, striking appropriate balance between timely definition and technical risk
    • Maintain and report on activity schedule and technical status


    • Minimum of a B.S. degree in engineering or related technical field
    • 7+ years of experience in ECLSS definition, analysis and development
    • Demonstrated technical expertise in various technologies for ECLSS for extreme environments such as spacecraft, spacesuits, or space habitats
    • Experience with fault-tolerance strategies and architectures for safety critical systems
    • Demonstrated knowledge of open- and closed-loop ECLSS architectures
    • Excellent written and verbal communication skills
    • Must be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident (current Green Card holder)


    • M.S. in a relevant scientific or engineering discipline
    • Knowledge of synergies between ECLSS and both ISRU and cryogenic fluid management
    • Experience with human spaceflight, standards and human integration requirements
    • Experience developing requirements, defining subsystem interfaces (both in-house and between external partners/suppliers), and other systems engineering products and practices
    • Experience across multiple portions of the product life cycle (concept definition through operations and use)
    • Experience with environmental sensors, atmospheric control and atmospheric revitalization
    • Experience with high pressure oxygen systems
    • Experience with fire detection and suppression systems
    • Experience with waste management and water recovery systems
    • Familiarity with Sinda/Fluint or similar modeling software
    • Proficiency in 3D CAD programs (Creo Pro/E and Pro/E Piping module preferred)
