    Job ID
  • Overview

    As part of a small, passionate and accomplished team of experts, you will be responsible for the thermal analysis and design/development of avionics enclosures for various spaceflight systems. This position will directly impact the history of space exploration and will require your dedicated commitment and detailed attention towards safe and repeatable spaceflight.


    • Derive subsystem and component thermal environments from system-level models and requirements
    • Model aerospace material thermal properties such as emissivity, absorptivity, and contact resistance, including how these properties change based on surface finishes, assembly methods, and exposure to space environments
    • Create models, calculate and evaluate thermal analysis on avionics enclosures and the internal electronics
    • Work closely with design engineers to develop integrated design solutions, rapidly assess conceptual designs, and establish thermal requirements and performance parameters
    • Validate the requirements and thermal analysis with testing of avionics electronics enclosures
    • Support electronics hardware development and trade studies
    • Create test plans, conduct tests, interpret data and create summary test reports
    • Maintain and report on task schedule, budget and technical status


    • B.S. degree or higher in Mechanical or Aerospace engineering or an appropriate engineering field
    • 5+ years of industry experience in thermal design and analysis of electronics packaging, avionics enclosures or experience designing aerospace avionics systems
    • Ability to apply judgement, developed through theory and experience, to assess the appropriate level of detail required in a thermal model
    • Experience working collaboratively in small teams on fast-paced projects
    • History of developing solutions with partially defined requirements and changing criteria
    • Strong electrical and mechanical design and integration skills using 3-D CAD software
    • Experience with Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing (GDT)
    • Must be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident (current Green Card holder), or lawfully admitted into the U.S. as a refugee or granted asylum.


    • Experience with ANSYS, IcePak, Steady State, Transient Thermal, Creo 3.0, Windchill 10
    • Experience with launch vehicle or spacecraft electro-mechanical systems
    • Experience with a scripting language or platform such as Matlab or Python
    • Experience with collaboration tools such as Confluence and JIRA
