Materials and Processes Engineer – Avionics and Electronics (All Levels)

Company Details

Millions of people living and working in space to benefit Earth.

We are a diverse team of collaborators, doers, and problem-solvers who are relentlessly committed to a culture of safety. This position will directly impact the history of space exploration and will require your commitment and detailed attention towards safe and repeatable space flight. Join us in lowering the cost of access to space and enabling Blue Origin’s vision of millions of people living and working in space to benefit Earth.

As part of a diverse and hardworking team of engineers, you will be responsible for the materials and processes (M&P) used to produce electronic assemblies in Blue Origin’s Engines. You will share in the team’s impact on all aspects of materials and processes used to build PWA, CCA, cables, harnesses; as well as a rigorous systems engineering mindset. You will be a Subject Matter Expert (SME) on solders and soldering, encapsulants, conformal coating, plating, staking compounds and other materials/processes for building PWB, CCA, cables, and harnesses. Your tasks will include conducting multidisciplinary problem-solving activities and propose solutions to prototype and manufacturing challenges. (i.e., design for manufacturability) to produce PWB, CCA, cables, and harnesses. You will also work collaboratively with manufacturing, quality, suppliers and service providers on development, prototype, and production electronic assemblies. Additionally, you will develop Blue Origin standard drawing notes for PWA, CCA, cables, and harnesses

We are looking for someone to apply their technical expertise, leadership skills, and commitment to quality to positively impact safe human spaceflight. Passion for our mission and vision is required!

Qualifications:

  • Industry experience developing and producing PWB, CCA, cables, and harnesses.
  • Experienced in applying commercial and military specifications and standards related to PWA, CCA, cables and harness.
  • Excellence in collaborating and communicating with diverse and cross-functional team.
