With the Spacecraft Test team, you will join a creative and enthusiastic group, applying your experience to assure mission success. Your primary role will be to support requirements verification of satellite missions. This involves working with customers, design and system engineers, and project managers to understand and specify requirements as well as: carrying out, revising, and writing test plans and procedures; presenting results and feedback to the larger team; and creating new hardware, processes, and software to improve production flow and quality. A Senior Spacecraft Test Engineer has been instrumental in multiple spacecraft test campaigns. They possess experience designing and hands-on time running spacecraft EMI-EMC, TVAC, and Vibe tests. From this experience, and a familiarity with standards such as GEVS, they know what to expect planning for these tests. In the lab, they can survey a test setup and quickly assess safety and efficiency. They have facilitated fault investigations and reporting. Comfortable with spacecraft systems, they know where to start looking for information. Reviewing, updating, and writing procedures, managing test flow, guiding debug efforts, and running functional and performance tests on space flight hardware are all well-known tasks. Astro Digital team members are driven and supportive. We foster frequent, open communication, and rely on collaboration and concurrence for problem solving. Fastidiousness, creativity, love of teamwork, and patience are essential qualities of a person in this role.
