As part of a small, passionate, and accomplished advanced development team, you will be an architect of deep space systems such as propulsion elements, propellant depots, spacecraft, landers, habitats, and various surface systems that support both human and robotic missions. You will help lead small and multi-disciplinary teams to align these system architectures with company strategies, products, and technology maturation plans. You are versed in the challenges, technologies, and solutions that address the space environment, and have knowledge in several disciplines such as propulsion, power, fluids (including cryogenic and storable propellants), avionics, thermal management, mechanisms, navigation and control.
You are adept at managing to a plan, comfortable adjusting it in response to evolving requirements or external constraints, and prioritizing efforts all the while infusing and facilitating creativity and innovation. You are able to clearly describe the vision for proposed architectures to internal and external customers and inspire a team. Ideally, you have direct experience in the development, integration, and flight of a deep space system such as a spacecraft, rover, or lander. Your contributions will directly impact the history of space exploration, and your dedicated commitment and attention to detail will further the cause of safe, affordable spaceflight.
