Principal Systems Engineer, Space Systems I&T

Company has an opportunity for a Principal Systems Engineer to join our talented engineering organization. Principal members of our development staff are technical leaders across multi-disciplined teams, possessing expert understanding of aerospace technology and payload architectures for spacecraft sub-systems and instruments.

Essential Responsibilities

The scope of the position requires a proven track-record with the integration & test of payload level sensor systems for the aerospace and commercial community. This will require developing test methods for the verification and validation of multi-segment (hardware/software/ground) complex electro-optical payload systems. The lead I&T systems engineer will be responsible for the development and review of all test requirements and will lead a multi-discipline team to develop complex test plans to verify all payload level requirements and CDRL's.

The ideal candidate will have a strong, multi-discipline technical background with direct experience in payload/ground segment/spacecraft interface V&V. The lead I&T SE will work directly with internal technical IPT's developing detailed test plans to satisfy all stakeholder requirements, track and report relevant technical performance metrics (TPM's), provide test data reports and status, as well as take a lead role in satisfying customer V&V concerns. Principal engineers are expected to support new business opportunities, lead program tiger teams, and actively develop junior level staff.
