    Job ID
  • Overview

    As part of a small, passionate and accomplished team of experts, you will provide technical expertise and analytical solutions to support the development of new space vehicles and test/launch facilities for various spaceflight systems.  You’ll need proficiency in measurement, prediction, analysis, and laboratory testing associated with dynamic environments. At a minimum, this entails a solid foundation in basic structural mechanics and structural dynamics, as well as some exposure to random vibration, acoustics, and shock. Working independently on advanced development projects, you’ll find your excellent collaboration and communication skills are an essential part of the job. This position will directly impact the history of space exploration and will require your dedicated commitment and detailed attention towards safe and repeatable spaceflight.


    • Prediction of launch vehicle shock, vibration, and acoustic environments due to engine, aero, pyro, or other sources
    • Shock, vibration and acoustic measurement/data interpretation of ground and flight tests 
    • Development, supervision, and verification of component environmental tests
    • Development and refinement of vibroacoustic test methods, procedures, levels, and durations
    • Other high and low-frequency loads tasks as required


    • Minimum of a B.S. degree in mechanical or aerospace engineering
    • Passion for launch vehicle high-frequency dynamic environments development/validation/testing 
    • A solid foundation of vibroacoustic and structural static/dynamic fundamentals, including PSD, OASPL, SRS, static/dynamic equilibrium, stress/strain/modulus, bending/shear/axial force development, etc.
    • Proficiency in MATLAB and some exposure to signal processing
    • Ability to work effectively in a multi-discipline team and provide technical guidance and insight
    • 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.


    • 2+ years of experience in launch and space vehicle vibroacoustic analysis/measurement/testing
    • High-frequency environment prediction skills related to launch vehicles
    • Experience solving a variety of complex problems using a combination of analysis and hands-on laboratory testing 
    • Experience with the following commercial software tools is a plus: SEAM, VA One, Wave6, ANSYS, NASTRAN, LS-Dyna, C/C++, FORTRAN
