Due to significant program wins in the cislunar area, we are seeking an Electrical Ground Support Equipment (EGSE) Test Engineer. In this role you will be responsible for designing test equipment (racks, test fixtures, etc.) to validate flight hardware and/or simulation hardware used for flight software testbeds. You will work closely with senior hardware and software engineers, to understand component and satellite designs, and create test set solutions that effectively and efficiently test them.
Job Responsibilities:
Under moderate supervision, you will be responsible for:
The design of software for component test equipment (CTE), automated test equipment (ATE), Hardware in the Loop (HITL) system, and simulation hardware
Support of the test and debug for flight and non-flight spacecraft electronic circuit card assemblies (CCA) and boxe
On occasion be responsible for ensuring that the technical requirements, cost, and schedule for the CTE/ATE system development is achieved
As part of a design team, be responsible for the end-to-end design, debug, test, and certification of CTE/ATE system
Work closely with the spacecraft UTT Design Engineer to ensure the CTE/ATE system will validate the circuit cards and/or electronics box under all test environments
