Jacobs Engineering Huntsville , AL 35801
Yes, this is rocket science!
We are hiring for a role in the Test Data Analysis organization.
This Systems Engineer (Data Analysis Engineer) will support the NASA Space Launch System (SLS) Hardware-in-the-Loop (HWIL) labs at Marshall Space Flight center in Huntsville Alabama. The HWIL labs include the System Integration and Test Facility (SITF), Systems Integration Laboratory (SIL), and multiple Software Development Facilities (SDFs) used to verify the integrated avionics and software systems for the SLS rocket. All of these labs include numerous complex real-time Software Models integrated with Electrical/Avionics systems to achieve detailed simulation of the SLS rocket.
Work will be performed for the Avionics and Ground Systems Test Branch (ES53) of the SLS program at NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama. This branch is responsible for maintenance, fabrication, integration, operation, assembly, and testing of project hardware and software in support of the noted SLS labs.
This position's primary responsibilities include:
Identifying and resolving complex problems pertaining to design, development, analysis, integration, evaluation, testing, and verification of systems, subsystems, and components
Performing data interpretation, assessment, and analysis of complex integration simulation and Hardware-In-the-Loop systems.
Developing plans to track and perform analysis of simulation and (HIL) systems
Communicating (written and verbal) clear and crisp insights and observations of performance of integrated systems
Creating technical documentation including test data analysis reports, requirement verification reports, and white papers
Presenting and defending analyses and reports during peer level reviews
Working with associated Systems Engineering (SE) teams, Software Dev teams, Test teams, and Electrical Integration team to ensure tests and analyses meet technical intent and appropriately verify system capabilities and behaviors
Communicating risks, issues and solutions to peers with various technical backgrounds and areas of expertise
The Jacobs Space Exploration Group (JSEG) offers a partnership in which you can grow personally and professionally within a framework of strong leadership, competitive compensation, and rewarding career paths. Come join our team on the Engineering Services and Science Capability Augmentation (ESSCA) contract whose work is destined to have a long-range effect on future generations!
