KBR Sr. Electrical Systems Engineer in Laurel, Maryland
Sr. Electrical Systems Engineer
Oversees the design, development, integration, and testing of space-based electrical systems. The candidate should be a multidisciplinary individual with experience in multiple aspects of electrical systems.
Interprets system level requirements as they apply to the development of electrical systems and components, identifies design alternatives and performs trade-off studies, error budget, sensitivity, reliability, failure mode and worst-case analysis to determine the optimum approach for the design, and to predict performance of the system for the expected operational and environmental conditions.
Leads the execution of test sequences to measure and characterize the performance of electrical components and systems, and, subsequently, analyzes and interprets the test results and prepares summary reports. This position is in support of space flight missions.
This position requires some knowledge of analysis, design and development of electrical and electronic systems for space borne applications including hands-on work in the fabrication, ground test and integration and on-orbit operation of flight hardware.
Experience in the use of electronic instrumentation and test equipment and of computer aided analysis, design and simulation tools. Strong computer skills (Excel, Word, PowerPoint and other technical software) and excellent communication/interpersonal skills are required.
The candidate must be capable of communicating effectively with other subsystem leads (Optical, Mechanical, Thermal, etc.) as well as other discipline lead engineers.
Knowledge of analysis and design of control systems, the operation and interfacing to the spacecraft's command and telemetry and power subsystems, sensors and actuators, experience in the design of electronic instrumentation systems from the standpoint of grounding, shielding and Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC), component de-ratings, performance limitations and the effects of cosmic radiation, and the modeling and management of the thermal effects that result from the power dissipation in electrical components is desired.
- A Bachelor of Science degree in Engineering or equivalent is required.
- 10 years
Must be a US citizen to apply
