Moog Space West is looking for a Space Vehicles System Engineer to join our Space Vehicles team in Arvada, CO. Moog Space West specializes in passive and active vibration suppression/load alleviation products and services, spacecraft buses and sub-systems, spacecraft and payload structure and propulsive accommodations, and precision motion control.

The Space Vehicles team is rapidly growing and comprises a cross-disciplinary group of industry veterans and young talent alike. The focus is on the development of satellite buses, Orbital Maneuvering Vehicles (OMVs), space tugs, and more. The team is a tight-knit group of collaboration-oriented professionals that welcome others looking to work on multi-faceted, complex problems as a team.

The role includes the following: Analysis of Customer specifications; Development and simulation of Bus-level system architecture and interfaces; Component evaluation and subsystem simulation and analysis; integration and test of the overall system, write test procedures and test plans; Interface and leadership of the other engineering disciplines on the  development and test team.

The Candidate will be a key contributor to the analysis, conceptual design, development, and testing of complex control hardware used on military, commercial and/or NASA vehicles and equipment. The Space West products arise from a common product line approach but are adapted for the specifics of the missions and payloads so generally are unique for each customer. Therefore, most new applications require a special, tailored design, even though adaptation of product line designs always should be considered where appropriate. The Candidate generally will operate as part of a design/development team, which includes other Department engineers. 

In the early stages of a new program, the project team will consult with the customer, establish the problem statement, conceive of potential hardware solutions to the problem, often through extensive trade studies, and then create a successful technical proposal. This phase is critical in that it establishes the basis for future design, and for contract negotiations. Under the technical direction of the Engineering Manager, Section Head or the team's lead engineer, the Candidate will then guide the evolution of the conceptual design, technical project planning, detail design, and development testing for the satellite vehicle. This requires some travel and the participation in presentations to customers. 


Basic Qualifications:

  • To be considered for the position of System Engineer, a candidate should have a minimum of an BS  Degree, preferably in Mechanical, Aeronautical or Electrical Engineering plus six years of design/development engineering experience.

  • Experience in leading a project development team is strongly preferred

  • To fulfill the demands of design and development of new products the individual must have self-starting instincts and strong analytical skills.

  • This position requires access to United States Export Controlled information.

Preferred Experience / Qualifications:

What’s in it for you? 

  • Flexible Planned Vacation

  • Outstanding Health Benefits

  • Generous 401K company contribution and match
