Full job description
Ast spacemobile and our global partners are building the first and only space-based cellular broadband network to be accessible by standard smartphonesCalled spacemobile, this ultra-powerful network is being designed to provide connectivity at 4g/5g speeds everywhere on the planet – on land, at sea and in flight.
Position may be remote/hybrid for ideal candidate.
The successful mechanisms design engineer will be responsible for design and optimization of various space-flight mechanisms for the deployment of a satellite constellationHe or she will be a key contributor in non-recurring and recurring/sustaining efforts and activities for the mechanisms and related elements as well as delivery of the system to spacecraft integration & testing.
The successful candidate will be innovative, creative, and challenge the status quoHe or she will work well in teams while also having the ability to work assignments autonomously.
Duties and responsibilities:
Participate in and execute design, analysis, and system trade studies to determine mechanism architecture for multi-satellite launch configuration in terms of the system simplicity, mass efficiency, launch vehicle accommodation efficiency, and production cost.
Execute the design and evaluation of assigned projects using sound engineering principles and adhering to business standards, practices, procedures, and program requirements.
Develop mechanisms and component technology, testing requirements, materials, processes, and tools, define mechanical interfaces with other subsystems.
Develop and maintain mechanical design documentation at system and equipment level: mechanical requirement documents, interface control drawings, test procedures and tooling (vibration, shock, tvac, assembly), manufacturing drawings.
Prepare and present necessary information required to conduct thorough design and readiness reviews with management and/or peers
Troubleshoot and investigate anomalies and failures, perform root-cause analysis, and provide resolution.
Communicate with manufacturing/production to ensure successful transfer of information and efficient processes are understood and documented.
Evaluate and champion new technology and methods.
Bachelor of science degree in mechanical engineering or related technical fieldMaster`s degree preferred.
Minimum 3 years of hands-on experience in mechanical design and analysis for spacecraft or launch vehicles
Us citizen or permanent resident card holder.
Strong technical skills in design of satellite mechanisms for launch and on-orbit environments and strong emphasis on design for manufacturability.
Cad experience required.
Knowledge/experience in stress and dynamics for satellite assemblies in launch and orbital environmentsFea program experience preferred.
Knowledge/experience of mechanism development and testing for space hardware.
Demonstrated ability to work in a multidisciplinary team with other engineers.
Flexibility/adaptability in a fast-paced & dynamic environment.
