The Team
We're looking for a talented and curious engineer to join our Avionics Hardware team to help build the electronics for both rocket and spacecraft. You'll get to own the design, component selection, schematic capture, layout, first article bring-up, production, and testing of prototypes and flight hardware for rocket/spacecraft subsystems. The job will involve working with multi-disciplinary teams and leaders for end-to-end development of state-of-the-art avionics components, including board design, system integration, and testing. In addition, there will be time allocated to supporting Mission Operations (including mission control console time).

The Opportunity
A successful person for this job will be dynamic, self-starting, who thrives in an entrepreneurial environment, and has the potential to become significant contributors to the overall direction and success of our business. As the ideal person for the job, not only do you know your way around schematic and layout software, but also a rack of test equipment and a soldering iron.

How you'll help us achieve our mission:
" Partner: Work with a cross-disciplinary team of system owners including electrical, mechanical, controls, and software engineers to design and refine flight hardware.
" Build: Take ownership of everything you design from conception, test and build.
" Impress: Don't be afraid to think outside the box. Astra is doing something that no other space company has and we are always open to new and creative ideas.
" Strategize: Be prepared to look down the development path to help design products that can grow/evolve with the launch vehicle.
" Up-level: Always be aware of the systems that you interact with and have a desire to help improve them.

" 5+ years of experience in electronics design
" PCB layout experience in Altium or equivalent
