Spacex Job Openings – Development Test Engineer

Website SpaceX

Job Description:

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.

Job Responsibilities:

  • Review data manually or using automated scripts
  • Provide daily direction and instruction to technicians to integrate test hardware and build test equipment
  • Work with vehicle responsible engineers to develop and execute tests from conception to completion, therein championing test article and test stand configuration, boundary condition definitions, development of fluid, electrical, and software schematics, and concepts of operation
  • Design, build, modify, and troubleshoot data acquisition and control systems (sensors, electromechanical actuators, programmable controllers)
  • React to rapidly changing priorities, travel to other SpaceX locations, and work unusual schedules as necessary to accomplish project objectives
  • Apply critical thinking abilities alongside foundational engineering principles to address unusual problems. Thereafter, collaborate with diverse, multidisciplinary teams to bring ideated solutions to reality.
  • Design, build, modify, and troubleshoot fluid systems (low and high pressure gasses, cryogenics, hydraulics, and rocket propellants)
  • Design, build, and modify mechanical systems (small lugs, struts, and brackets to large welded/bolted structures)

Job Requirements:

  • Typically exposed to work in extreme outdoor environments – heat, cold, rain
  • Flight hardware typically is built in tight quarters and physical dexterity is required; capability to lift up to 2 lbs unassisted
  • Physical effort including standing, lifting and carrying light weight such as materials or equipment
  • Work occasionally performed in an environment requiring exposure to fumes, odors, and noise
  • Some travel (up to 25%) required to other SpaceX locations; flexibility required
  • Schedule varies depending on site operational needs; flexibility required
  • Demonstrated ability to learn new skills or adapt to dynamic situations
  • Demonstrated success in situations where multidisciplinary engineering skills were used to execute a design or project under technical/schedule pressure and where scope and definition were limited
  • Demonstrated achievements where quick-thinking and problem solving played a critical role

Qualification & Experience:

  • Experience with design and operation of hazardous systems – cryogenic, flammable, hypergolic, pyrophoric, high-pressure, etc.
  • Experience using electromechanical instrumentation and control hardware and software
  • Bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering, aerospace engineering, electrical engineering, manufacturing engineering, or other engineering discipline
  • 1+ years of experience developing and executing testing from conception to completion (internship experience qualifies)
  • Work experience with aerospace structural, mechanical, or propulsion systems assembly and testing
