JPL’s Mechanical and Receiving Inspection Group is seeking a Mechanical Inspector who will be responsible for performing the CMM dimensional inspection of machined parts from both internal manufacturing and procured from JPL suppliers for spacecraft assembly. This position will require interfacing with customers to understand and sometimes suggest inspection requirements, managing workload and priorities in inspection queues and documenting/communicating inspection results. This position will conduct moderately complex inspections of space flight hardware and will require programming of CMM using PC DMIS software as well as micrometers, borescopes, height gages, and reporting of non-conformances; identification of inspection techniques improvements and incorporation of best practices in processes; and the assessment of suppliers’ processes and products.
Mechanical Inspectors collaborate with all organizations that design, build, assemble, test, deliver, and operate unprecedented robotic space missions in support of NASA's vision. We are a world-class organization with highly skilled and motivated people that minimize project risk by ensuring hardware is built as intended. We demonstrate technical excellence in hardware quality assurance throughout the project lifecycle.
