  • Overview

    As part of a small, passionate, and accomplished team of experts, you will be part of a cross functional, cross disciplined, technical leadership role for various spaceflight systems. You will share in the team’s impact on all aspects of subsystem requirements, development and decomposition, subassembly (enclosure/harness/board/component) design development, subassembly integration, and independent requirement-based verification of safety and mission critical functions. This position will directly impact the history of space exploration and will require your dedicated commitment and detailed attention towards safe and repeatable spaceflight. You will engage across the entire product life-cycle, from concept to launch, in a direct hands-on manner.


    • Drive avionics hardware subassembly system engineering requirements development, validation, and decomposition; including enclosures, harnesses, boards and complex electronic circuits and components within the avionics department
    • Drive avionics hardware subassembly and component-level risk analyses, failure modes effects and criticality analyses (FMECA), and fault and event tree analyses (FTA/ETA)
    • Drive independent requirements-based verification of safety and mission critical integrated assembly functions; including verification planning, DFT process development, Design Verification Test (DVT) planning and execution
    • Collaborate with architects and engineering leads to define, improve and implement hardware development and verification processes across entire life cycle of avionics subsystem hardware
    • Participate in electronic assembly, board and component development activities; including planning, schematic and layout reviews, and design reviews


    • Bachelor Degree in Electrical, Computer, Aerospace, or Systems Engineering, or other related disciplines
    • 5+ years systems engineering experience – preferably with aerospace systems
    • Experience in a systems engineering role as a flight/safety critical system developer designing systems, electronic hardware assemblies, including boards and complex electronics, on cross-functional and multi-disciplined teams
    • Experience in developing independent requirements-based test plans for integrated electronic assemblies; including subsystem, board and complex electronic component integration, test and debug
    • Experience in design process automation and test automation using python or similar scripting language
    • Experience with one-or-more requirement management tools (e.g. DOORS, DOORS NG, Jama, Innoslate, Integrity, etc.)
    • Must be a U.S. citizen or national, U.S. permanent resident (current Green Card holder), or lawfully admitted into the U.S. as a refugee or granted asylum.


    • Graduate degree in relevant engineering or other related discipline
    • System engineering process-assurance experience in the development of aerospace mission and safety critical electronic hardware assemblies compliant with ARP-5754/DO-254
    • Design experience developing high-reliability IPC-A-6xx compliant PCBs/PCAs using Cadence OrCAD and Allegro; including experience working with external design and manufacturing vendors.
    • Design and Design Verification Test (DVT) experience for complex electronics: CPLDs, FPGAs, microcontrollers and microprocessors
    • Programming and scripting experience: Python, System Verilog, Verilog, VHDL; TCL, Linux shell and Windows batch scripting; C / C++; and MATLAB / Simulink
