Job Description:

About Rocket Lab

At Rocket Lab we believe the future will be defined and enabled by access to space. We re making it easy to get there. We re already the global leader in dedicated small satellite launch and now we re also building satellites and space systems that enable exploration and innovation in low Earth orbit (LEO) and beyond.

The Photon Program

Rocket Lab is seeking exceptional engineers to work on its Photon satellite program. Photon is a first-of-its-kind platform in the small satellite industry: a versatile satellite bus that is also an integral part of the launch vehicle. Photon is being developed to enable a broad range of missions in low-Earth orbit and beyond. Photon was recently selected by NASA to deploy a CubeSat to the Moon in 2021 as a pathfinder for Gateway, the program to return humans to the lunar surface.

Engineers within the Photon team have a unique opportunity to help shape this space system and, given the high launch cadence of Electron, have unparalleled opportunities for end-to-end software development and on-orbit operations. Your days will be spent developing software architecture, writing and testing software, and iterating based on lessons learned from your software running in space. The ideal candidate will have a strong software development background and will be familiar spacecraft and satellite systems.

Flight Software Engineer

Rocket Lab has multiple Flight Software Engineer positions available for immediate hire. As the Flight Software Engineer you develop and test spacecraft application software for the Photon satellite program. In this role, you will work in multidisciplinary teams involving hardware development, ground software / operations, and systems engineering.

Duties & Responsibilities

* Collaborate with systems engineers and embedded systems engineers in developing requirements and managing interfaces with hardware and software within the vehicle

* Architect and develop application software for flight and ground systems

* Develop documentation for operation and interface with software products

* Develop and participate in test campaigns ranging from unit-level to automated testing at the subsystem and system-level.

Required Skills & Experience

* An engineering degree in computer science, electrical engineering, computer engineering, or equivalent qualification

* 5-15 years of demonstrated applicable experience in both software development and program management.

* Software development in Linux and embedded environments, as well as C and C++

* Experience with software running in autonomous systems (satellites preferred, but other examples would include UAVs, self-driving cars, etc).

* Experience with networked communications and/or distributed systems.

* Document management & systems engineering experience

* Experience working with subcontractors and vendors

* Demonstrated success working in a dynamic environment with multiple priorities

* Demonstrated success meeting aggressive development schedules

Desired Skills & Experience

* Direct experience writing satellite software

* Knowledge of the radiation environment of space and its impact on software architecture
