at Blue Origin LLC in PhoenixPhoenix, Arizona, United States
At Blue Origin, we envision millions of people living and working in space for the benefit of Earth. We're working to develop reusable, safe, and low-cost space vehicles and systems within a culture of safety, collaboration, and inclusion. Join our diverse team of problem solvers as we add new chapters to the history of spaceflight!
This role is part of the Lunar Permanance business unit. To further Blue Origin's mission of having millions of people living and working in space, we are building the sustainable infrastructure for our transport of crew and cargo from Earth to the Lunar Surface.
Our Lunar Pathfinder mission will demonstrate the lander's core capabilities - including the privately funded BE-7 landing engine, precision landing sensors, and integrated power and propulsion architecture - on an early New Glenn flight. The team building this vehicle is rethinking how space systems are designed, with a high-performance architecture, efficient reusability, and rapid design iteration. Join our team and pave the road to a permanent lunar presence!
As part of a hardworking and growing team of diverse lunar spacecraft development engineers, you will join our Flight Controls group within the Guidance, Navigation, and Controls (GN&C) section. Your responsibilities will include the development of advanced flight control algorithms, performing analyses and trade studies, verifying subsystem requirements, applying Model Based Development practices to build GN&C flight software, and supporting the full lifecycle of GN&C subsystem design through flight completion.
We are looking for someone to apply their technical expertise, leadership skills, and commitment to quality to positively impact safe human spaceflight. Passion for our mission and vision is required!
