Liaison Engineer II

Job Description
    Do you enjoy designing and developing innovative solutions to solve tough problems? Join our team to deliver technological solutions in a rapid and agile production environment. Our Mechanical engineers research, design, develop, test, certify, deploy and improve cutting edge products and services. These cover a very wide range from orbital systems to space exploration systems. You'll conceptualize and deliver complex mechanical structures and systems and your technical duties include the design and development of new products and processes throughout the product lifecycle.

    Liaison engineering team members are responsible as Design Engineering's 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, engineering change 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.

    The ideal candidate will excel in a demanding, fast-paced, and evolving environment where they will work as part of a strong, agile and highly motivated 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, interorganizational 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 and engineering tools to come up with solutions to problems that meet drawing and document requirements. A successful applicant will have the ability thrive in a challenging multidisciplinary build environment, collectively solving build problems that require collaboration and agreement of various organizations including but not limited to Design, Quality, and Manufacturing engineering.


      Nonconformance (MRB):

        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.

        Understand, prioritize, communicate and execute nonconformance 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 technicians, engineers, and quality assurance engineers related to drawing and spacecraft requirements by overseeing installations, providing interpretation, 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.


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

      3+ years, with 1 year in a manufacturing environment preferred (1+year with MS)


      Experience in design and build of primary and secondary composite structures

      Experience in design and build of metallic structures and fittings

      Proficient or familiar with hand calculation methods for structural analysis

      Aerospace propulsion, hydraulics, mechanisms design and build experience desired

      Proficiency preferred in NX CAD, but experience is another CAD package is acceptable

      Familiar with typical PLM architecture

      Experience with utilizing, developing, optimizing, interpreting and maintaining processes, specifications, and work instructions

      Takes initiative, tenacious, and highly energetic

      Able to adapt to a fast-paced and evolving work environment

      Confident and competent in communication across departments and at different levels of leadership

      Experience driving cross-functional changes to address specific technical problems

      Experience monitoring, tracking, and continually improving design via root cause analysis
