LEAD/SENIOR SYSTEMS ENGINEER
SCOUT is pioneering critical capabilities to empower commercial and government spacecraft to better understand their surroundings through vision systems and Artificial Intelligence. We are a rapidly-growing team deploying real solutions which will transform spaceflight. We are looking for an experienced Systems Engineer to lead our architecting efforts across multiple domains such as Space Domain Awareness (SDA), GNC, Remote Proximity Operations (RPO), and data pipelines/architectures.
This work requires awareness and control of our own spacecraft dynamics, as well as detection and tracking of the relative position and dynamics of other spacecraft at various ranges: proximity, rendezvous, or entirely separate orbits.
We are a diverse team that faces open-ended problems daily and doesn't limit itself to any single mode of problem-solving. Our core values are a Culture of Challenge, Open-Mindedness, Vision First, Ecosystem-Minded, and Transparency.
PREFERRED SKILLS AND EXPERIENCE:
Don't fulfill all the qualifications listed above? If you still feel like you might be a good fit, please feel free to APPLY ANYWAY. We believe in a well-rounded team, and this sometimes means that someone with out-of-context knowledge can contribute just as well as someone with very explicit alignment with our capabilities needs stated.
We are currently predominantly remote, and this is a remote position. As we scale our facilities and engineering team, there will be an opportunity to work in-person. Travel may be required at times for onsite work and in-person meetings.
