Lead Electromagnetic Compliance Engineer

Expired Job

Space Exploration Technologies Redmond , WA 98053

Posted 3 months ago

SpaceX was founded under the belief that a future where humanity is out exploring the stars is fundamentally more exciting than one where we are not. Today SpaceX is actively developing the technologies to make this possible, with the ultimate goal of enabling human life on Mars.


This position entails leading the EMC team that will help design the satellite broadband network of the future. You will work closely with the different design teams on pre-design tradeoffs, specifications, and testing of vehicle and ground components and systems to deliver regulatory compliant systems.

You will use your deep understanding of electromagnetic environments and effects to set requirements based on physics rather than industry standards. You will support engineering management with confidence; thinking creatively and questioning the status quo.

If you seek a fast-paced, dynamic environment; if you thrive on solving difficult, fuzzy problems where resolutions have high impact; if you love managing through persuasion and if you love the challenge of building something from scratch, then this position might be your next career step.


  • Perform analysis and design relating to: effects of space plasma, thruster plume, lightning, surface/bulk/triboelectric charging, grounding architectures, structural bonding, galvanic isolation, transfer impedance, shielding effectiveness, effects of radiated/conducted emissions & susceptibility, near field/far field electric fields, welding, protection circuits (example: TVS diodes) and corona

  • Design and perform EMI/EMC tests to validate the design and analysis of the satellite, ground stations, gateways, user terminals and their subsystems and deliver regulatory compliant systems

  • Write EMI requirements, test plans and test reports

  • Troubleshoot EMI issues from system to board level

  • Generate aggressor/victim matrix to identify EMC risks in the system design

  • Analyze spacecraft magnetic moment and current loop torque disturbances

  • Soft and hard iron magnetic modeling and its interactions with other spacecraft components

  • Schedule and arrange 3rd party EMC test facilities

  • Scope, budget and build internal EMC test facilities


  • Bachelor of Science Degree in electrical engineering or physics

  • 7+ years of work experience in EMI/EMC requirements, design, analysis, debug and testing

  • 4+ years of experience leading an EMI/EMC team

  • Previous work experience with two or more of the following: creating circuit schematics, creating or reviewing PCB layouts, reading engineering drawings, creating bills of material


  • 10+ years of work experience in EMI/EMC team

  • Previous work experience with MIL-STD-461, MIL-STD-464, NASA-STD-4003 documentation

  • Advanced Degree in electrical engineering, physics or other similar technical areas of study

  • Knowledge of in-space EMI/EMC effects. This includes: effects of space plasma, charging, grounding, bonding, shielding, design for low radiated emissions, lightning, electromagnetic field coupling, Maxwell's equations, boundary conditions, image charge/current, and lumped element modeling

  • Knowledge of materials and their electrical properties including paint, anodize, magnaplate, nickel plate, alodine, surface finish, electrical conductivity, volume resistivity, surface resistance

  • Demonstrated experience troubleshooting EMI events from system to board level

  • Demonstrated experience with NASA-HDBK-4001, DO-160, MIL-STD-1541, SSP 30237, SSP 30238 documentation

  • Strong knowledge of RF principles and RF engineering

  • Familiarity with electromagnetic simulation software such as Ansys Maxwell and HFSS

  • Experience in fast-paced work environment with flight hardware

  • Setup and run EMC development and test facility

  • Excellent communication skills both written and verbal


  • Must be available to work extended hours and weekends as needed


  • To conform to U.S. Government space technology export regulations, applicant must be a U.S. citizen, lawful permanent resident of the U.S., protected individual as defined by 8 U.S.C. 1324b(a)(3), or eligible to obtain the required authorizations from the U.S. Department of State.
