Job Details

Systems Engineer will be expected to lead development of spacecraft operational solutions for a variety of systems engineering problems, perform in a team environment, and work under the general direction of a group leader. The engineer will lead subsystem working groups, maintain cognizance of vehicle and mission status, and be responsible for reporting status to leadership. The engineer will collaborate with internal customers and mission teammates to understand external customer or user needs, and define the resources, deliverables, and testing necessary to satisfy system (both vehicle and ground-to-space) requirements. These deliverables will include development of plans for mission contingencies and alternate operating concepts that create robust and optimized solutions to sustain mission longevity. The engineer is expected to define the scope of systems engineering tasks and provide input to the task completion schedule and cost. The engineer will apply systems engineering concepts to prioritize working multiple subsystems simultaneously and accomplish tasks that include assessing risk, cost/benefit trade studies, and evaluating the impact of mission changes. The engineer will be expected to provide 24/7 recall support to anomaly response and apply systems engineering rigor to anomaly resolution. Customer satisfaction and mission success will be engineer’s daily top goal
