Job Description:
JPL’s Power and Sensor Systems Section provides end-to-end development of materials, devices, systems and hardware for spacecraft and terrestrial power sources, energy storage devices, power electronics and power systems. We engage in developing chemical, electrochemical, and conductive sensors, while maintaining expertise in state of the art technologies over a wide variety of fields. The Power Integration and Test and Bench Test Equipment (I&T and BTE) Group within the Power section provides robust, reliable, and cost effective Bench Test Equipment solutions to support Research & Development and Flight project hardware. Our group develops Bench Test Equipment and test procedures across the flight project life cycle. Currently, we are seeking a creative, authoritative Engineering Applications Software Engineer. This is someone with the know-how to synthesize customer needs and requirements into effective system test solutions. These test solutions negotiate technical, schedule, and cost constraints. You'll work within the group to help develop the next generation of space power hardware.

RESPONSIBILITIES:
As a member of Power I&T and BTE group (3468), you will perform software engineering activities to help develop the next generation of space power hardware. You will synthesize customer needs and requirements into effective system test solutions. These test solutions negotiate technical, schedule, and cost constraints. These activities include requirements development, software architecture and design, code development, along with extensive user and system level testing. The engineer will be responsible for determining the approach for the software development, and ultimately be responsible for the final coded capability. This work includes software level peer reviews, and would also include formal testing of peer developed capabilities.

Required Skills:
• Must be a US Citizen or Green Card Holder
• Offer contingent on ability to successfully pass a background check and drug screen
• This position typically requires a Bachelor’s degree in a computer related engineering field with a minimum of 3 years of related experience; a Master’s degree in similar disciplines with a minimum of 1 year of related experience.
• OTHER QUALIFICATIONS INCLUDE:
- An extensive background in software development and testing with specific experience in LabView and Altium Designer
- Experience with test software and hardware, particularly using LabView and LabView-compatible test equipment.
- Advanced knowledge of principles, theories, concepts and techniques in developing, modifying, debugging, releasing and maintaining LabView and associated software systems for bench test applications.
- Experience with distributed computing and inter-process communication (IPC) mechanisms.
- Experience with Device driver development and software/hardware interfaces for both custom and commercial hardware.
- Debugging software/hardware interactions and possible failure modes.
- Experience with Altium Designer is a plus

Desired Skills :
Preferred qualifications include experience and validated capability in the areas of:
- Knowledge of circuit design and board design software associated with test fixture and electronics development
- Industry and/or academic practices and standards across a range of applications related to the testing and integration of electronic assemblies for space applications
- Excellent written, verbal and social skills for relating to both internal and external customers
- Validated ability to multi-task with an established track record of meeting schedule landmarks
- Proven leadership skills and ability to work with fluctuating and opposing environments
- The application of principles, theories, concepts and techniques in simulation and test, particularly focused on analog electronics in space environments
- Military, Aerospace & Space hardware development experience
