As part of a small, passionate and accomplished team of experts, you will be responsible for automating a wide range of processes and operations to increase the efficiency of launch cycles, engineering, and data management. A significant part of this effort will be understanding the interplay of the systems; how the vehicles operate; the differences between the vehicles; and the opportunities for improvements to the vehicles, facilities, systems, and launch procedures to make each successive mission more efficient, effective, safe, and affordable. You will be part of the New Shepard (NS) Operations Engineering team, which reviews technical decisions with the NS Design Definition Authority in areas outside their scope of authority. The Operations Engineering team includes operations engineers specializing in fluid systems, mechanical systems, avionics, software, hydraulics, structures and overall vehicle systems integrity and performance.
This position will focus on systems automation software for all of the vehicle and ground systems on the currently flying and newer versions of the New Shepard launch vehicles and crew capsules, with an emphasis on daat automation as a tool to improve the ability to support and maintain a flight cadence of one mission per week. The job will be based in Kent, with routine travel to Blue Origin’s launch site in Texas. Additional responsibilities may be assigned depending on individual experience and qualifications. This position will directly impact the history of space exploration and will require your dedicated commitment to and detailed attention towards safe and repeatable spaceflight.
