Our world is a dynamic place, more so today than ever before. Come join us on Military Support Programs as we navigate this ever-changing global landscape. If you have a passion for all things space and get excited about the prospect of building premier spacecraft, then MSP is the place for you to make a difference. The MSP Guidance, Navigation and Control team is looking for enthusiastic and talented individuals to help us design, build and test the components and algorithms used for controlling spacecraft and determining where they are. The selected candidate will play a key part in developing creative solutions for both challenging design and operational problems, and in advancing the state of the art for model-based systems design and next-generation simulations.
We are looking for an individual with an engineering or similar background with both the desire and ability to help the team excel by serving as the Scrum Master. While prior experience as a scrum master is beneficial, it is not required. The key characteristics needed are a desire to learn, strengths geared around organization, optimization and communication, and above all, a willingness to be a servant-leader for the team. The ideal candidate should enjoy working with others and be able to win the respect and trust of the team. They will be responsible for ensuring Scrum concepts are understood and enacted, facilitating the day-to-day meetings for the Scrum, and engaging both the team and external stakeholders to continuously improve the process and remove impediments.
The Scrum Master role is expected to take about half of the time and the other half will involve working with the team to solve various technical challenges. The ideal candidate will have experience with both GN&C subsystems and software development. This experience will enable them to help develop the GN&C simulations, analyze spacecraft performance, and support the production of the spacecraft. They will also be involved in the maintenance of operational systems, for example, trending spacecraft health, performing root-cause analysis, and supporting anomaly resolution.
The selected candidate will have the opportunity to directly influence success of the team and will be part of the design, production and maintenance of advanced spacecraft systems. They will need to be self-motivated and possess strong communication, organization and leadership skills in order support the team. They will face tough challenges and tight schedules on a regular basis as well, but we believe the reward significantly outweighs these challenges. In this position, the selected candidate will be part of an incredible team developing creative and novel technical solutions that have a lasting impact on our world.
