Due to significant program wins in the cislunar area, we are seeking an Electrical Ground Support Equipment (EGSE) Test Engineer. In this role you will be responsible for designing test equipment (racks, test fixtures, etc.) to validate flight hardware and/or simulation hardware used for flight software testbeds. You will work closely with senior hardware and software engineers, to understand component and satellite designs, and create test set solutions that effectively and efficiently test them.

**Job Responsibilities:**
Under moderate supervision, you will be responsible for:
The design of software for component test equipment (CTE), automated test equipment (ATE), Hardware in the Loop (HITL) system, and simulation hardware
Support of the test and debug for flight and non-flight spacecraft electronic circuit card assemblies (CCA) and boxe
On occasion be responsible for ensuring that the technical requirements, cost, and schedule for the CTE/ATE system development is achieved
As part of a design team, be responsible for the end-to-end design, debug, test, and certification of CTE/ATE system
Work closely with the spacecraft UTT Design Engineer to ensure the CTE/ATE system will validate the circuit cards and/or electronics box under all test environments
Have the responsibility for the documentation development and release of the CTE/ATE system

**To be successful in this role you should have:**
Experience designing test hardware
Good mechanical skillset
Working knowledge of Visio, CREO, Zuken E-3, and/or other mechanical design packages
Test Engineering experience
Good communication skills
Experience working in small teams
Experience documenting cabling drawings/wiring diagrams

In this role, you will join a team of 2-4 EGSE Engineers and take direction from a Lead EGSE Engineer. You will also interface with the subsystem engineers to obtain design requirements. Early on, there will be a lot of design work that requires documentation development in not only electrical design, but also mechanical design, then support to the EDL (Engineering Development Lab) when the hardware is being built and assembled. The next phase will be spent in a lab performing integration, and troubleshooting any problems, on the product you helped to design and build.
