Blue Origin LLC System Engineer II, Avionics Integration Lab - Lunar Permanence in Seattle, Washington

At Blue Origin, we envision millions of people living and working in space for the benefit of Earth. We're working to develop reusable, safe, and low-cost space vehicles and systems within a culture of safety, collaboration, and inclusion. Join our diverse team of problem solvers as we add new chapters to the history of spaceflight! This role is part of the Lunar Transportation business unit. To further Blue Origin's mission of having millions of people living and working in space, we are building the sustainable infrastructure for our transport of crew and cargo from Earth to the Lunar Surface. As part of a small, passionate, and accomplished team of engineers and technicians, you will design and build the avionics integration labs for the Blue Origin Lunar Landers. These labs are also known as the Vehicle Test Beds (VTBs). The VTBs will be used to ensure the correctness and performance of the vehicle avionics software and the interfaces between the subsystems and other space vehicles/systems. You will also design and build the avionics emulators which will be sent to NASA and our partners. Your focus will be on the integration of all the vehicle subsystems and external interfaces in the VTB. You will work directly with NASA and our National Team Partners as part of the Human Landing System (HLS) Sustaining Lunar Development (SLD) program. You will play a key role in developing the Lunar Transportation system that will return humans to the Moon and extend human presence permanently beyond the bounds of Earth. 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! Responsibilities include but not limited to: Requirements, design, architecture, procurement, build, integration, verification, and certification of the VTBs and avionics emulators. Coordinate with the vehicle subsystem teams to define their test requirements, to integrate their subsystems in the VTB, and to complete the subsystem test plans. Identify and procure equipment, and coordinate with technicians for the build, assembly, and installation of equipment and harnesses. Support the integration of flight avionics, hardware, operator consoles, test equipment, and analysis tooling necessary to verify the requirements and performance of avionics units under test within the VTB. Support checkout of the avionics systems and solving technical problems. Develop the VTB integration and change management plans. Maintain configuration control of the VTB HW and SW configuration. Minimum Qualifications: B.S. degree in electrical engineering, aerospace engineering, mechanical engineering, computer science, or related technical degree 4+ years of industry experience with avionics systems integration and verification Excellent problem investigation skills and proficiency in the use of standard electronic lab test equipment (oscilloscopes, DMMs, power meters, data acquisition cards, etc) Solid understanding and appreciation for configuration management principles Ability to earn trust, maintain positive and professional relationships, and contribute to a culture of inclusion Must be a U.S. citizen or national, U.S. permanent resident (current Green Card holder), or lawfully admitted into the U.S. as a refugee or granted asylum Preferred Qualifications: M.S. degree in electrical engineering, aerospace engineering, mechanical engineering, computer science or related technical degree Experience defining, designing, and/or operating electrical ground support equipment, labs, and/or test assets for hardware in the loop testing Experience with the development and execution of a large-scale verification of avionics on autonomous space
