Job Description

Point Solutions Group is supporting the development and production of a wide field imaging component that will be implemented onto the follow-on Infrared telescope to Hubble. We are looking for a Principal Electronic Systems Engineer to help design the architecture that will be used to integrate the imaging component onto the final payload. Ideal candidates will have experience with high speed digital systems and high reliability electronic design and be able to work a consistent schedule on-site at a customer facility in Boulder, CO.

What you’ll do:

  • Infuse new electrical technology where needed, make the electrical system work end-to-end, and make the mission successful.

  • Lead electrical technology assessments and electrical system level architecture trade studies, electrical system definition, and electrical subsystem level requirements flow-down (analysis and allocation).

  • Provide technical oversight of detailed designs to ensure the electrical system is compliant and verifiable at the payload and spacecraft level. Technologies include focal planes, digital signal processing, high speed data transfer, low noise analog sensing, thermal control, mechanism control, low voltage power, power management and harnessing.

  • Instrument level grounding, EMI/EMC/ESD allocations and implementation, and electrical interface control definitions.

  • Effectively operate within a multi-discipline systems engineering team.

  • An ability to talk with both internal and external customers.

  • Defining and implementing the test and verification program.

  • Lead the resolution of hardware anomalies and determine root cause and corrective action.

  • Contribute to proposal efforts for space based instruments.

  • Maintain a regular and predictable work schedule.

  • Establish and maintain effective working relationships within the department, the Strategic Business Units, Strategic Support Units and the Company. Interact appropriately with others in order to maintain a positive and productive work environment.

  • Perform other duties as necessary.

What you’ll need:

  • BS degree or higher in Engineering or a related technical field is required plus 12 or more years of related experience.

  • Each higher-level degree, i.e., Master’s Degree or Ph.D., may substitute for two years of experience. Related technical experience may be considered in lieu of education. Degree must be from a university, college, or school which is accredited by an agency recognized by the US Secretary of Education, US Department of Education.

  • Experience as a technical team leader.

  • First-hand knowledge of electronics used for low voltage power generation and distribution, digital data processing, high speed serial data transmission, discrete command and telemetry, low noise analog signal processing, closed loop control electronics, and EMI/EMC/ESD compliance.

  • Knowledge of grounding architectures for low noise systems.

  • Knowledge of harnessing to meet voltage drop, power, EMI/EMC/ESD, and signal integrity requirements.

  • Experience developing single string and redundant electrical systems.

  • Experience in developing or guiding the creation of electrical system specifications, and electrical requirements analysis and allocation.

  • Detailed design experience with "space flight qualified" electronics.

  • Analytical experience: FMECA, WCA, reliability, EMI/EMC/ESD, voltage drop, and derating.

  • Ability to identify and mitigate technical risks.

  • Ability to evaluate and optimize size, weight, and power.

  • Exceptional verbal and written communication skills, strong presentation skills, and the ability to effectively lead group discussions.

  • Expertise in high speed digital system architectures, closed-loop control systems, and integration and test experience.

  • Embedded processor-based electronics architecture experience.
