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 and technicians, you will build, integrate, test and operate the New Glenn Hardware-in-the-Loop (HIL) labs we utilize to verify the performance of our avionics and electrical ground support equipment on New Glenn.  You will share in the team's impact on all aspects of the HIL development and its use as an operational verification tool.  

As the Integration Engineer, you will order and track parts and materials for HIL hardware assemblies.  You will be responsible for kitting materials for hardware assemblies and organizing material transfers between receiving, assembly areas and laboratories.  You will own the assembly of HIL electrical and mechanical systems using engineering drawings and process documents.  You will need to be able to build, inspect, test and rework cable assemblies.  You will need to perform checkout and troubleshooting of electronic assemblies.  You will need to be able to load software and drivers onto computers and instruments.  You will help to maintain a clean and orderly lab environment. You should be able to redline and update HIL documentation and drawings.

To be successful you will have to support the integration of flight avionics, ground support equipment, control consoles, and communication hardware in the HIL.  You will also support integrated system tests in the HIL to perform flight software qualification and operator training.  You must be able to modify the HIL configuration for system or subsystem level testing per engineering test procedures.

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!
