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.
Are you excited about developing the guidance, navigation, and control software for an advanced fleet of communications satellites? Our team is creating the algorithms and software that will perform high-performance flight control on each spacecraft; in other words, the autopilot that flies the constellation.
As a guidance, navigation, and control (GNC) software engineer, you will design, implement, test, and support the real-time software that flies the spacecraft from the moment of launch to re-entry, joining a team of control systems experts and engineers to deliver the control/estimation algorithms. In collaboration with partner teams, you will execute cross-disciplinary product development with a high bar for rigor and technical excellence. You must be able to thrive and succeed in an entrepreneurial environment, and not be hindered by ambiguity or competing priorities.
The right candidate will possess a strong, well-rounded technical background in software, with some hardware familiarity. Prior experience with spacecraft or autonomous vehicles is helpful, but not a prerequisite.
