Job Description

Company Description

Intergalactic is a team of engineers, technologists, designers, mathematicians, and problem solvers committed to a singular idea: reviving the no-boundaries mentality in aerospace. We are a team of the nation’s best, regardless of where we live.

Job Description

The Intergalactic Lead Aerospace Electrical System Engineer will help drive innovation by designing, developing, and deploying electrical and software system engineering products and processes. Utilizing industry standards and best practices to capture system and unit level requirements, architecture decomposition, technical processes, test plan generation and verification sell off.  

Expected Tasks, Duties, and Responsibilities

Reasonable accommodations will be made to enable individuals with disabilities to perform the following essential functions.

1) Translate high-level system technical and conformance requirements into lower-level electrical engineering (EE) and software (SW) requirements and specifications

2) Collaborate tightly with the systems engineers in the development of system level requirements that are testable and with appropriate scope at the lower-level for software

3) Manage EE and SW technical requirements from the top down (traceability, verification, and validation) across multiple programs.

4) Generate government-required conformance documents

5) Design and generate lower-level software test matrices, plans, and procedures to cover and show compliance to the lower-level software requirements verification matrix

6) Collaborate with the EE director in developing automated methods for verification or methodologies to reduce the burden of verification testing required including use of auto-code and automated testing

7) Architecture development of electronic and software sub systems

8) Development and maintain standard EE and SW engineering methods/processes to improve product quality and conformance

9) Development of EE and SW contract data requirement list (CDRL) documents (design analysis, risk mitigation, review of safety factors & stack-ups, reliability tools, and design reviews).

10) Work and collaborate with the program teams and their customers to ensure real time communication and optimum solution development.

11) Support the development of operating instructions and programs for equipment.

12) Oversee integration of design builds to ensure they function according to specifications.

13) Evaluate prototypes to ensure the capability to complete desired functions.

14) Analyze alternative techniques and methods and recommend changes to processes or procedures as needed.

15) Share technical information and training with other departments.

16) Perform other duties as assigned.

Required Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities

1) Working experience of industry standard SE processes pertaining product lifecycle (specs, requirements, architecture, formal reviews, integration, test and deployment).

2) Excellent written and verbal communication.

3) Working experience of aerospace embedded electronic and software systems

4) Working knowledge or experience of embedded controls

5) Working knowledge or experience with common embedded electronic and software tools/languages (Sch capture, PCB boards, C/C++, Dev Ops Flows)

6) Excellent interpersonal relationship building both internally and externally.

7) Understanding of aerospace conformance documents (MIL-PRF-XXX, DO-178/160/254/XXX)

8) Functional understanding of major aircraft or satellite systems: environmental control systems, powerplant, electrical, hydraulics, controls, avionics, power generation, and structures.

9) Growth mindset.

10) Creative innovation.

11) Basic coding/scripting experience (preferably in MATLAB or Python).

12) Knowledge of steady state and dynamic system modeling and architecting high level controls.

13) Experience with desktop modeling of complex system controls (preferably using Simulink)

14) Results driven.

15) Proficiency with Microsoft Office Suite.

16) Obsessive organization.

17) Meticulous attention to detail.

18) Independent initiative.

19) Productive collaboration.

20) A polite, helpful, and friendly demeanor.
