Project Kuiper is an initiative to launch a constellation of Low Earth Orbit satellites that will provide low-latency, high-speed broadband connectivity to unserved and underserved communities around the world.

We're looking for an outstanding senior level Structural/Mechanical Engineer with a background in space vehicle designs and complex electro-mechanical systems integration. The ideal candidate has experience making major trades for satellite bus architectures, including integration of all subsystems, payload, and optimizing for interface with launch vehicle. This is a hands-on role for a highly collaborative individual that combines superb technical, and analytical capabilities to convert trade studies to a qualified physical vehicle, while optimizing for high volume production.

Responsibilities

  • Mechanical design and layout trades contributing to overall system architecture configuration selection, requiring extensive knowledge and experience in understanding, collaborating and trading complex inputs from multiple other disciplines Electrical, RF, Thermal, Structural, Dynamics, Mechanisms, Materials, Manufacturing, Assembly, Qualification and Test.

  • Generate detailed designs and conduct/enable static, dynamic and modal structural analysis as needed.

  • Collaborating with analysis team, deliver a structurally efficient vehicle design capable of high volume production throughput by optimizing vehicle design across all metrics of vehicle build and Launch Vehicle integration.

  • Tolerance analyses and verification of critical clearances for all vehicle states.

  • Preparation and documentation of materials for design review gates.

  • Contribute to detailed schedule for vehicle, with development of test plans - vehicle structure tests, vehicle AIT, qualification, and stack integration for LV.

Export Control Requirement:

Due to applicable export control laws and regulations, candidates must be a U.S. citizen or national, U.S. permanent resident (i.e., current Green Card holder), or lawfully admitted into the U.S. as a refugee or granted asylum.

We're looking for an outstanding senior technical leader with a successful background leading a team in the development of complex space systems. This individual will plan and execute strategic initiatives to advance the development of spacecraft Bus architectures for our future LEO missions. The ideal candidate will have a history of delivering flight vehicle hardware and high impact innovations, with extensive expertise and experience across multiple aspects of vehicle design. This is a hands-on technical leadership role collecting inputs from, and providing essential input to multiple subsystems, disciplines, and leadership team. The ideal candidate has experience making major trades for satellite bus architectures, including integration of all subsystems, payload, and interface with launch vehicle. This role includes hiring, and mentoring senior and junior colleagues. Responsibilities: * Deliver a LEO Satellite BUS design to be produced in high volume, and meeting performance, cost, and schedule deliverables. * Extensive detailed trades in determination of a physical architecture optimized for vehicle parameters and launch vehicle integration. * Applying extensive knowledge and experience in reviewing, negotiating, and establishing requirements for overall vehicle that satisfies high reliability on-orbit payload operations. This requires a highly collaborative engagement with senior leaders from multiple disciplines - vehicle electrical architecture, payload, AIT, manufacturing, supply chain. * Key contributor to vehicle subsystem trades for Power, Payload, Propulsion, ADCS, Avionics. * Develop the vehicle schedule that supports physical architecture trades, detail design, hardware development, and vehicle level testing to align with master schedule deliverables. * Engaging with Launch Vehicle providers for design of optimized integration approach for high volume processing. * Key contributor in the review and selection of potential technology suppliers for hardware development and / or test. * Preparation and documentation of review materials for design review gates. * Managing a development team with extensive multidisciplinary interactions.
