Launch Vehicle Control Systems Engineer - New Glenn

Location: Seattle
Posted on: May 16, 2022

Job Description:

We are a diverse team of collaborators, doers, and problem-solvers who are relentlessly committed to a culture of safety. This position will directly impact the history of space exploration and will require your commitment and detailed attention towards safe and repeatable space flight. Join us in lowering the cost of access to space and enabling Blue Origin's vision of millions of people living and working in space to benefit Earth.
What impact will you have on the advancement of human space exploration? As part of a hardworking and complementary team of engineers, you will develop and verify inner-loop flight control applications for New Glenn launch vehicle systems. Together, we will positively contribute to all aspects of developing and verifying control software applications. Our team serves in several traditionally distinct roles: Systems Engineering, Fluids Engineering, Control Systems Engineering, Software Development, and Software Verification. We build and validate engineering simulations of fluids subsystems to verify that control algorithms and software satisfy requirements. Successful team members demonstrate excellent engineering judgment and an ability to work independently with minimal direction and supervision.
We are looking for engineers to apply their technical expertise, leadership skills, and dedication to quality to positively advance safe human spaceflight. Passion for our mission and vision is required and is a key indicator of a successful candidate!

  • Strong engineering fundamentals; particularly in fluid mechanics and thermodynamics.
  • Deep understanding of fundamental controls engineering, such as frequency response analysis, stability margins, filtering, and state-space control and estimation.
  • High proficiency in Simulink and MATLAB for modeling, simulation, control design, and automatic code generation.
  • Practical experience in software development, including embedded C or C++ programming.
  • Excellent technical writing and verbal communication skills.
  • B.S. (or M.S. or Ph.D.) in aerospace, mechanical, or related engineering with 5+ years of real project experience.
  • Ability to support 40-50 hour work weeks with occasionally higher effort as required to meet schedule.

  • Must be a U.S. citizen or national, U.S. permanent resident (current Green Card holder), or lawfully admitted into the U.S. as a refugee or granted asylum.
    • Substantial experience and success developing controls for real systems.
    • Hands-on experience with high-pressure gas and cryogenic propellant systems.
    • Deep knowledge of systems engineering for safety-critical systems.
    • Experience with rockets, missiles, or other aerospace vehicle systems.
