    Currently seeking a motivated and tenacious engineer who will support Assembly Integration and Test operations of the Dream Chaser spacecraft as a representative of the spacecraft design organization.

    The ideal candidate will excel in a demanding, fast-paced, and evolving environment where they will work as a lead of a small team of other liaison engineers.

    Demonstrating thought agility and highly motivated, this person will lead part of the team to accomplish the first of its kind in the private industry, flying spacecraft.

    This individual takes pride in his/her thoroughness, emphasis on follow through, inter-organizational communication skills and attention to requirements conformance.

    The candidate will be able to problem solve from the component level to installation level addressing often first time problems and use strong logic, engineering tools, and tactful leadership to come up with solutions to problems that meet or exceed drawing and document requirements.

    A successful applicant will have the ability thrive in a challenging multidisciplinary build environment, collectively solving build problems that require leadership, collaboration, and agreement of the Design, Quality and Manufacturing organizations.

    Liaison engineer team members are responsible as the primary interface for manufacturing floor activity for Uncrewed Dream Chaser (UDC) and Cargo Module (CM) fabrication on the CRS2 program.

    Liaison's goal is to ensure design requirements are met between production, planning, and supply chain, while maintaining schedule.

    Through a detailed understanding of the build processes, design requirements and extensive collaboration with the internal teams designing and managing installations, this team is a key stakeholder to ensure that the overall build of UDC and CM design achieves all objectives.

Primary Responsibilities:

    Nonconformance (MRB):

    Review, assess, disposition, analyze, justify, determine cause and relay improvements for build discrepancies, errors and other nonconformances

    Provide guidance on when NC's are appropriate vs other engineering change options, enforce process standards, and provide streamlined support to quickly address and close.

    Oversee, understand, prioritize, communicate and execute nonconformances against program schedule.

    Engineering Change:

    Develop and utilize knowledge of various engineering change options, determine and execute the appropriate change option that creates the shortest path and meets engineering requirements for each unique problem.

    Document, prioritize, communicate, and track required engineering changes fed back to the spacecraft design organization for resolution.

    Work closely with manufacturing, quality, planning, and procurement teams to address changes and shepherd them through fruition on the production floor.

    Contribute to innovative, time saving, and cost-effective improvements to help streamline engineering change and response times.

    Drawings, Processes and Technical Specifications:

    Provide guidance to the liaison team, technicians, engineers, and quality assurance engineers related to drawing and spacecraft requirements by overseeing installations; providing training, and information briefs on key topics.

    Support the development and maintenance of program specific technical specifications, and follow through on execution of these specifications to drive efficiency.

    Contribute to development and execution of standard repairs, analysis methods, and acceptable defects to streamline defects processing through MRB.

    Monitor existing processes and nonconformance trends to develop tools and other methods to reduce manufacturing build hours and quality issues, increase production rates, and remove waste from complex processes.

Required Skills:

    Bachelor's degree in aerospace, mechanical, industrial or manufacturing engineering

    Background in the aerospace industry preferred, but not required.

    10+ years, or 8 w/ MS, 4 years of which were in a manufacturing environment
