Electrical Engineer III At Jet Propulsion Laboratory

Location: La Cañada Flintridge, California

Job Description

New ideas are all around us, but only a few will change the world. That's our focus at JPL. We ask the biggest questions, then search the universe for answers--literally. We build upon ideas that have guided generations, then share our discoveries to inspire generations to come. Your mission--your opportunity--is to seek out the answers that bring us one step closer. If you're driven to discover, create, and inspire something that lasts a lifetime and beyond, you're ready for JPL.

Located in Pasadena, California, JPL has a campus-like environment situated on 177 acres in the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains and offers a work environment unlike any other: we inspire passion, foster innovation, build collaboration, and reward excellence.

Responsibilities
The JPL Communications, Tracking and Radar Division performs scientific investigations, advanced technology research, engineering developments and system implementations encompassing space telecommunications, tracking and active remote sensing using electromagnetic waves.

Within the Communications, Tracking and Radar Division, the Flight Communications Section engineers cost-effective space borne communications systems, services and products including direct-to-Earth (DTE) and proximity relay links for NASA/JPL and non-NASA missions; developing, delivering and supporting software-defined radios (SDRs), spacecraft and airborne antennas, RF power amplifiers, and related products for RF system applications. Also, this section specializes in optical communications, including deep space lasers, sensitive single-photon detectors and actuator-sensor systems for accurate narrow laser beam pointing, in addition to developing telecom concepts and demonstrating them for infusion into operational ground and space systems of NASA missions, for DARPA, and other agencies.

Do you have a passion for space exploration and flight electronics? Are you a strategic team player and enjoy the challenge of electronics development from design concept to implementation?

We seek a self-motivated individual who can work well both independently and in a team environment to serve as an Electrical Engineer Level 3 for our Communication Support Equipment and Ground Systems Group (337C).

Be a member of 337C Communication Support Equipment and Ground Systems Group.
Report programmatically to the 337C Group Supervisor and project customer directly.
Lead a team that will design, develop, document, implement, and verify Electronic Ground Support Equipment (EGSE) including electronic instrumentation and interface chassis used to test Engineering Model (EM) and Flight Model (FM) electronics. Design, develop, document, implement, and verify all interconnect EGSE cabling. Perform electrical integration, testing and verification for multiple project EM and FM electronics.
Apply broad knowledge in field to evaluate customer engineering requirements and devises approaches to meet requirements.
Develop Graphical User Interfaces (GUIs) using LabVIEW graphical programing software, write and execute test procedures, command scripts, and IBATs to verify EM and FM electronics functionality and performance.
Participates as a Subject Matter Expert (SME) and presents results in component and subsystem design reviews as significant contributor to design.
Present EGSE section at Preliminary Design Reviews (PDRs) and Critical Design Reviews (CDRs) and leads EGSE reviews, Test Readiness Reviews (TRRs).
Works independently on important assignments and projects with only limited supervision, typically receiving only general instructions.
Setup, configure, and verify EGSE in clean room lab for EM and FM Integration and Test (I&T) and develop Acceptance Test Procedures (ATPs) for EGSE verification.
Serve as Test Lead/Engineer in a cleanroom environment as well as at various Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) test facilities.
Identify, troubleshoot, and resolve hardware/software problems in the EGSE system; will also contribute in problem/failure investigations involving the EM or FM hardware.
Will write detailed Problem Failure Reports (PFRs) and document additional testing that may be required to resolve PFRs.
Qualifications
Bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering or related technical disciplines with 6 years of related experience; or Master's degree in similar disciplines with 4 years of related experience; or PhD in similar disciplines with 2 years of related experience.
Requires experience in developing EGSE for, the purpose of testing JPL EM and FM hardware.
Must have extensive knowledge of JPL policies and procedures, Flight Project Practices, NASA policies and procedures, and applicable government regulations.
Knowledge of analog/digital/power electronic circuits and systems.
Has advanced understanding and experience with instrument command and telemetry protocols.
Test automation systems and software including scripting languages and Graphical User Interface (GUI) design.
Integration-and-test skills: safe-to-mate measurement; electrical interface verification; digital testing.
Electrical schematic/drawing development, for EGSE, test fixtures, and cabling.

Preferred Qualifications:
Ability to read schematics, requirements, and Interface Control Documents (ICDs) in order to understand hardware interfaces and conceptualize the required Electronic Ground Support Equipment (EGSE) interfaces to successfully simulate and emulate spacecraft sub-systems necessary for EM and FM hardware testing.
Thorough understanding of modern test instrumentation and the interfaces and software used to control and monitor their functionality.
Ability to train and mentor others in the development and use of EGSE hardware/software during technical interchange meetings to facilitate others in becoming proficient in EGSE operations and understanding the nuanced behaviors between EGSE and hardware interfaces.
Ability to identify, troubleshoot, and resolve hardware/software problems in EGSE systems; will also contribute in problem/failure investigations involving the EM or FM hardware.
Ability to write detailed Problem Failure Reports (PFRs).
Has advanced knowledge of applicable Laboratory policies and procedures, NASA policies and procedures, and government regulations.
