As part of a small, passionate and accomplished team of experts, you will work directly with Avionics system designers and engineers in the selection, application, and procurement of Electrical, Electronic, and Electromechanical (EEE) parts for avionics assemblies. You will provide design guidance for component de-rating, parts/circuit level analyses, environmental impacts including thermal and single event effects, and mission life predictions for EEE parts to improve the performance and reliability of avionics hardware flying on multiple programs. This position will directly impact the history of space exploration and will require your dedicated commitment and detailed attention towards safe and repeatable spaceflight.
