We are a private technology company that designs, develops and operates space camera systems. We are currently seeking an Electronics Engineer specializing in image sensors and ionizing radiation effects to join our multidisciplinary space imaging systems design team. As a member of our small team, you’ll be responsible for the design and development of analog, digital, and opto-electronic systems for use in science, commercial, and government applications on earth orbiting and interplanetary space missions.
Develops test methods and associated analysis for the characterization and evaluation of visible, IR, and UV image sensor quality and performance and understands the sensitivity of sensor performance to application conditions (i.e., bias voltages, clock signal integrity, temperature, and radiation environment).
Develops source control drawings and internal travelers and work instructions to define image sensor (and related electronic parts) screening and qualification; manages the execution of required testing.
Continuously surveys available electro-optical sensor technologies, manufacturers, and products as well as existing space flight heritage and test data; Uses this information to recommend sensors for specific requirements, either for internal research and development or to support bids to customer requirements.
Develops radiation test plans for both dose and single-event effects, executes testing at third-party cyclotron and Co60 facilities across the U.S., analyzes results and formally reports findings.
Performs program-specific radiation analysis for both dose and single-event effects, considering the radiation performance of each part and the application/circuit within the design.
Writes test plans, reports, and presentations and participates in design reviews.
Performs other duties as required or requested which may become essential to this position.
Bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering or Physics is required, Masters or PhD preferred.
Experience with image sensors and/or radiation test and analysis is required.
Excellent written and verbal communication skills, capable of clearly explain technical issues and ideas to peers, management, and customer representatives.
Qualifications in either image sensors or ionizing radiation effects.
Experience developing electro-optical sensors or camera systems for the space environment preferred.
