The Mission System Engineering and Operations Engineer will develop and manage requirements, design control and autonomy algorithms, perform spacecraft orbital and rigid-body dynamics analysis, design telemetry and command systems, support mixed simulation testing for embedded flight software, develop and optimize spacecraft operating procedures, and resolve real-time on-orbit flight anomalies. Potential assignments will include system engineering, attitude control unit engineering, software interface and requirements management, space vehicle autonomy algorithm development, mission operations, dynamics and controls analysis, data analysis, and requirements validation.
[ + ] Adaptability
Tries to understand changes in work-group tasks, situations, and the department as well as the logic or basis for change; occasionally seeks information about changes affecting their individual job. Treats changes and new situations as opportunities for learning or growth; focuses on the beneficial aspects of change; speaks positively about the change to fellow work group members. Quickly modifies behavior to deal effectively with changes in the work environment; readily tries new approaches appropriate for new or changed situations; does not persist with ineffective behaviors.
[ + ] Collaboration
Makes an effort to work effectively and cooperatively with fellow work group members; establishes and maintains productive working relationships by involving other work group members as appropriate and thanking them for their assistance. Places higher priority on work group goals rather than on own goals; offers to help other employees when they need assistance.
[ + ] Communication
Makes an effort to clarify purpose and importance; stresses major points; follows a logical sequence. Tries to keep the audience engaged through use of techniques such as analogies, illustrations, humor, an appealing style, body language, and voice inflection. With guidance from others frames messages in line with audience experience, background, and expectations; tries to use terms, examples, and analogies that are meaningful to the audience. Occasionally seeks input from audience; checks understanding; tries to present message in different ways to enhance understanding. Uses syntax, pace, volume, diction, and mechanics appropriate to the media being used. Interprets messages from others and responds appropriately; at times requires guidance from others on how to respond.
[ + ] Innovation
Seeks alternative ways to view or define problems. Tries to combine ideas in unique ways or makes connections between disparate ideas; explores different lines of thought; views situations from multiple perspectives; participates in brainstorming approaches/solutions. Focuses on areas for innovation and suggests solutions that address meaningful issues in own work area.Technical
