Providing Space as a Service®

A Spacecraft Systems Engineer at Xplore must understand that a spacecraft is a highly integrated system in which changes to any part impacts the others in complicated and non-obvious ways. You will tie together this complex, high-performance system ensure consistency between system, subsystem, and component requirements, interfaces, and performance.

Responsibilities will include:

  • Serve as a satellite systems engineer across multiple subsystems
  • Perform functional analyses
  • Establish and document system and subsystem level architecture with artifacts such as states and modes diagrams, functional block diagrams, interconnect diagrams, and physical block diagrams
  • Maintain and create interface control documents
  • Develop verification plans at all levels of assembly
  • Identify space-segment and ground-segment hardware necessary to accomplish payload and telemetry transmission over a wide range of mission CONOPS and orbital parameters

Required skills and experience:

  • Bachelor of Science in Engineering, ideally Aerospace, Systems, or Electrical Engineering
  • 5+ years of relevant experience
  • Experience with systems engineering for a spacecraft
  • Experience with several of the following: CONOPS development, spacecraft functional analyses, requirements decomposition and definition, modeling and simulation, trade studies, risk management, reliability engineering, orbital mechanics, launch and space environments, fault tolerant systems, spacecraft assembly and test, and technical budget management

Desired Qualifications:

  • Experience in all phases of system/subsystem development, from initial concept definition through on-orbit operation
  • Experience managing large, interconnected requirements sets
  • Proficient with modeling tools and scripting languages such as Matlab/Simulink, Python, or STK
