Job Description

Experienced Electrical Ground Support Engineer **Job Details** Job ID:12155 New ideas are all around us, but only a few will change the world. That’s our focus at JPL. We ask the biggest questions, then search the universe for answers—literally. We build upon ideas that have guided generations, then share our discoveries to inspire generations to come. Your mission—your opportunity—is to seek out the answers that bring us one step closer. If you’re driven to discover, create, and inspire something that lasts a lifetime and beyond, you’re ready for JPL. Located in Pasadena, California, JPL has a campus-like environment situated on 177 acres in the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains and offers a work environment unlike any other: we inspire passion, foster innovation, build collaboration, and reward excellence. **Responsibilities** The Software Simulation and Test Environments Group designs and builds high-fidelity workstation-based and hardware-in-the-loop simulators for supporting the development and testing of the flight software and avionics systems. We are part of the Flight Software and Avionics Systems Section in JPL’s Autonomous Systems Division that designs, builds, and pilots spacecraft to explore remote destinations in our solar system. We create simulations of complex hardware and space physical environments to enable development and testing of the flight software before the hardware is available. We build simulators with sophisticated fault-injection and physical manipulation capabilities to enable a wide-class of off-nominal testing that would not otherwise be possible using physical hardware in earth environments. We are looking for an experience and self-driven software engineer with a passion for writing simulation and ground support equipment software. As a software engineer in this group, you will design, build, and test software that simulates complex avionics hardware and physical environments. + Working with the project lead, system engineers, and product users to generate software requirements and design for the simulation and ground support equipment software components. + Implementing software components in C/C++ and Python per the requirements and design. + Developing embedded real-time application programs utilizing Real-Time Operating Systems. + Testing software and verifying requirements and design by using well established unit testing and functional testing methodologies. + Preparing and conducting requirements reviews, design reviews, code reviews, and test reviews throughout the software development cycle. + Managing software builds and releases by setting up and maintaining automated continuous integration. **Qualifications** + Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science, or related discipline + 6+ years of software engineering experience using C/C++ and Python + In depth knowledge of Object-Oriented Programming concepts + Knowledge and hands-on programming experience in writing simulation software + Experience with low-level software/hardware interfaces + Experience with developing and debugging real-time embedded software systems. + Good understanding of concurrent programming, multithreading and inter-process communication mechanisms. + Strong verbal and written communication, presentation, and interpersonal skills with ability to work in a team environment. + Ability to work with in-development hardware undergoing changing interface specifications. **Preferred Qualifications:** + Leadership ability for software development that employs formal and structured lifecycle development process. + Background in dynamics simulation and integration methods + System engineering experience in generating, tracking and proving successful implementation of requirements. + Experience with driver development for real-time embedded applications. + Hands on experience in developing embedded real-time application programs using the Green Hills Integrity RTOS and the associated software tool chain. + Experience with continuous integration and modern source configuration control Note: Preferred candidate identified **Work Authorization** U.S. Citizen **Connect with Us** Not ready to apply?
